In today’s ever-changing world, it’s not only what you want, it’s how soon you can get it. This can apply to almost anything, from online shopping to communication; we want immediate responses and instant gratification.
With that in mind, your friends at Merts Heating & Air Conditioning, Chicagoland’s HVAC leader, want to let you in on an ever-growing trend in home climate control: ductless heating and cooling systems. These ductless mini-split systems can allow you to pinpoint which room exactly you need your cool or hot air pumped into. They eliminate the need for costly and sometimes inefficient or leaky ductwork, while delivering that instant gratification of climate-controlled air.
Our traditional central forced air systems have served us well for decades, but a mini-split system is a great supplemental option. A mini-split A/C system features an outdoor condenser which can deliver cooled air to as many as four individual air handlers, which are usually mounted high on an interior wall. The connection between the condenser and air handler requires just a three-inch hole in the wall, and the condenser can be hidden outside as far as 50 feet away. Because they do not require ductwork, the mini-split upfront installation cost is much lower than a traditional central forced air system, and they can improve your energy efficiency by up to 30 percent.
Convenience is a big mini-split heating and cooling system selling point. Each handler can be managed with zoned programming, which means individual rooms can be set to custom temperatures. No more thermostat battles between family members because one room is too hot or too cold. They are also perfect if you have added more space to your home, or are converting attic or garage space to living areas. These rooms can be climate controlled with a mini-split system without connecting them to your central air conditioner.
