Summer heat and high humidity outdoors in Boonsboro, MD, can make your home unbearable indoors, too. One effective system that can efficiently help adjust the temperatures and indoor air quality is a ductless mini-split AC. Here are some benefits you stand to reap when you install a ductless AC in your home.
1. Improved Energy Efficiency
Your ductless mini-split AC meets Energy Star energy-efficiency guidelines of operating toward maximum efficiency while using less energy. Their ductless structural difference makes them less susceptible to energy loss. Over 30% of energy loss occurs in the ductwork of traditional heating and cooling system designs.
2. Decreased Carbon Footprint
Ductless mini-split heat pumps are small and allow for zoning in your home, making the system more energy-efficient than a traditional HVAC system. Increased efficiency not only lowers the cost of your energy bills; it’s also a move toward the global objective of reducing the world’s carbon footprint.
A ductless mini-split also reduces its effects on the ecosystem by using a refrigerant known as R410. The R410A has zero-ozone depletion potential so that there’s minimal impact on the environment.
3. More Flexibility Than Regular HVAC Systems
When it comes to the physical design of a ductless mini-split AC, its comparatively tiny size enables installation in several rooms. The mini-split air conditioner uses an outdoor unit with a compressor and condenser, plus indoor air handlers you can mount on a wall or in your ceiling. Their makeup grants your ductless AC the capabilities to allow for a zoning system.
Zoning systems mean you can have separate thermostats for the needs of different rooms in your home or business. Thus, everyone in your home will be able to achieve their desired temperature through even more efficient means.
A ductless mini-split offers you ideal air conditioning, and you can achieve that sustainably and efficiently. Contact Care Services Inc. if you’d like us to handle your ductless mini-split AC installation.
