A Ductless Mini Split Can Solve the Problem of Hard-to-Heat Upstairs Bedrooms

Wednesday, October 02, 2013

From one room to the next throughout your home, a ductless mini split makes a great addition to help keep everyone warm during the cooler months. It has the ability to be installed within a short period of time, and requires no additional ductwork. For this reason and more, consider adding a ductless mini split to your home.

How a Ductless Mini Split Functions

A ductless system features an evaporator, outdoor condenser and a tube with a condensate drain. The condenser is installed on the outside of your home, with the tubing being run directly to where you need additional temperature control. With everything in place, you can use interior controls to help warm up the air in those harder-to-heat spots such as upstairs bedrooms.

Everything is handled with a thermostat that helps to regulate the temperature of any room that you are in. This presents a unique benefit compared to traditional ductwork, where the heat is spread throughout your home. By using a ductless system, you are not only heating up cooler areas of your residence, but you are also wasting much less energy over time because they can be installed to focus heating and cooling in the rooms you use most often.

Ductless systems are considered favorable because of their energy efficiency benefits. While traditional ductwork found in the home can have energy loss as high as 45 percent, a ductless system typically only sees a loss of between 1 and 5 percent. Because you are able to control which areas you would like to heat, you will also cut down on your energy bill each month.

Additional Advantages

Many homeowners also love their ductless mini-split systems because of how much simpler they are to install when compared with traditional ducted systems. You gain additional design flexibility because the systems can be hung from a ceiling, mounted on a wall, or set in other areas. Because of the smaller system design, you can install the outer unit as far away as 50 feet from the evaporator that sits in your house.
