Ductless mini-split systems are rapidly becoming more popular thanks to their ease of installation and energy efficiency. Knowing if a ductless mini-split system is right for your West Columbia, South Carolina home can help you make decisions about how you configure your climate control system. Here are the three most common setups for ductless mini-splits to help you figure out if one is right for you.
If you’re adding on to your home, climate control is an important consideration for your new addition. For some homes, extending ductwork to the new area is a snap, while others require additional extensive renovation as well as a new HVAC unit to handle the additional space load. If your home falls in the latter category, a ductless mini-split system may be your best choice. Discreet and easy to install, these systems can be mounted on an external wall and act as climate control for your new addition without having to extend any ductwork or add extra work to your pre-existing HVAC system.
Historic homes often don’t have the infrastructure for central climate control or, if they do, it’s difficult to extend past the core areas of the home. Ductless mini-split systems can be installed in rooms and areas that can’t be connected to a central unit. Some models can connect up to four interior units to a single outdoor component. Extension accessories provide homeowners with plenty of flexibility when deciding on unit placement, improving the overall energy efficiency of your home.
If you notice that there are some rooms in your home that are warmer or colder than others, a mini-split ductless system can help even out your home’s overall temperature. This often happens in rooms with lots of windows or ones that are the farthest away from the central climate control unit. A ductless mini-split system can restore the comfort to those rooms without requiring extensive ductwork or rezoning.
