Since Palm Harbor, Florida, is located right on the coastline, the weather is warm and humid year-round. Most homes already have air conditioning to keep the temperature and humidity at comfortable levels, but if your older home doesn’t have air conditioning, consider installing a ductless mini-split system. Here are the advantages of a ductless mini-split.
Ducts Aren’t Necessary
Ductless mini-split systems are, in fact, ductless, which goes a long way when trying to bring air conditioning to a space that isn’t connected to an HVAC system. Some of these spaces could be in an older home, garage, room addition, or sunroom. The installation is much easier, and you’ll be saving energy consumption by using a ductless air conditioning option.
Because the ductless mini-split system doesn’t need ducts, the process to install it is much faster and simpler. A technician only needs to cut a 3-inch hole in the wall to connect the pipes between the indoor and outdoor units. There’s no need for a large renovation to bring air conditioning to living spaces when you install a ductless mini-split system.
Better for Zoning
It’s easier to zone your spaces when using a ductless mini-split system. For instance, the baby’s room can be set to a different temperature than the family room and so on. Each indoor unit has its own thermostat and is separately connected to the outdoor unit, so you can set each room to the temperature you want.
According to Energy.gov, air ducts can consume more than 30 percent of energy for space conditioning. Installing a ductless cooling system means that you can be more energy efficient. Additionally, since you can zone your spaces, you can focus your air conditioning in particular spaces instead of wasting energy cooling down the entire house.
