It goes without saying that summers are intense around here, and most of the year feels like it could well be summer. Our air conditioners get a heck of a workout, month after month. As you’ve probably seen in your own energy bills time and time again, all that work doesn’t come for free.
Just because you’re used to high cooling costs and we live in a very hot area doesn’t mean that you have to just put up with them, though. If you’re thinking about replacing your existing air conditioner in Tallahassee, FL, any time soon, you should definitely think about installing a ductless mini split in its place.
What Sets the Ductless Mini Split Apart?
Ductless mini splits have a few benefits going for them. The first is right there in the name—they’re ductless!
Now, don’t get us wrong. Air ducts can be an effective means by which to distribute conditioned air throughout homes. However, they can also be an efficient means of, well, inefficiency! They can leak, allowing heat into the system. The AC then has to work harder than it should have to in order to cool the air again. That adds up to pretty massive cooling costs!
Then there is the zone control aspect of things. While ducted systems can use zone control systems, the capability is native to ductless mini splits. They use individual, wall-mounted blowers to condition the areas in which those blowers are installed. That allows you to maintain different temperatures throughout different areas of your home.
You’ll actually be able to live more comfortably, while paying less for that comfort. We think that’s a pretty great deal, don’t you?
One System. Year-Round Comfort.
Maybe the coolest thing about heat pumps in general, including ductless mini splits? They can heat homes, too. In fact, this is another major money-saver. The way that they heat homes is both incredibly efficient and ideal for our climate.
Heat pumps don’t burn fuel or use electric resistance to generate new heat. Instead, they transfer heat into the house in the winter, just as they transfer it out of the house during the summer. This heat transfer process uses just a small amount of energy, and it is exceptionally effective and efficient in places like Florida.
Take Advantage of All That Ductless Has to Offer
No worries about leaks. No worries about dirty ducts. No worries about caring for two separate HVAC systems. When you break it down, it’s kind of wild that everyone doesn’t go ductless!
Another great benefit of ductless mini splits is that they can be installed easily in places without pre-existing ductwork. It’s much easier for our professionals to install a ductless system than to retrofit ductwork into existing spaces, but we certainly excel there, too. If you want the most out of your ductless mini split, then we are definitely the pros you want to work with.
