Is A Mini-Split Right for You?

ductless cooling massachusettsNow that summer is here, you’re going to want to do all you can to stay cool. Perhaps you’re considering installing a ductless air conditioner in your New England home. Here’s what ductless mini-splits offer you:

  • An interior wall-mounted unit with an outdoor compressor
  • A great alternative to window units
  • Zoned room-by-room cooling
  • No need for ductwork (making them great for older homes and independent spaces)
  • Models that are ENERGY STAR–rated
  • Supplementary heating and hot water heating options

If your home doesn’t already have ductwork for central AC, installing it could cost you thousands on top of the thousands of dollars for adding central air conditioning. Avoiding that up-front cost is a great reason to consider ductless.

If you choose ductless AC for your home, you won’t just save on installation versus central AC, you’ll also enjoy long-term savings. Ductless mini-splits may cost more in upfront costs (equipment and installation) versus a window unit, but you’ll make that money back over the lifetime of the unit in operation costs.

Advantages of Mini-Split Cooling

Here are some of the advantages ductless mini-splits offer:

  • Energy efficiency: Ductless mini-splits can use up to 40% less energy than window units. That means you won’t have to wait to save. Your energy costs will be lower with a ductless system versus a window unit from day one.
  • Power: Mini-splits are capable of cooling multiple rooms and large spaces—better than any window unit could—and using less energy.
  • Precision: Mini-splits work with smart thermostats and give you the ability to target cooling to specific zones of your home. And you can do it from your computer, tablet, or smartphone.
  • Permanence: Once installed, your ductless mini-split will stay put all year long—unlike a window unit you might remove every fall.
  • Quiet: Mini-splits operate more quietly than window AC units.
  • Aesthetics: Unlike a with a window unit, you don’t lose a window or the light it lets in with a mini-split.
  • Safe & Clean: Mini-splits don’t let bugs, dust, dirt, and pollen in the way a window AC does. It also doesn’t leave your window more vulnerable to an intruder the way a window-mounted unit does.
