Many situations would call for the installation of a mini-split AC in Beavercreek, OH, even in homes with a central unit. Ductless AC systems are ideal for sheds and garages that are separate from the home, and they can also work for room additions. Mini-split systems can be a better option in the case of room additions because they avoid the hassle of more ducts and let your current heat pump, especially if it’s single-speed, maintain its current air balance.
Mini-split air handlers cool one room. Keep in mind, however, that you can hook up eight air handlers to a single compressor. This makes whole-house cooling, or something close to it, a reality. Many home builders opt for mini-split systems for the benefits they offer, which we’ll outline below. And the owners of historic homes go ductless because ducts would compromise that historic value.
Reasons to Choose Ductless AC
Once you choose a brand, it’s not hard to plan out and execute the mini-split AC installation. You don’t need much wall space to hang your air handler. The air handler’s sleek look should also be able to satisfy everyone’s aesthetic taste. As for the compressor, which isn’t so aesthetically pleasing, you can put a generous 50 feet of distance between it and the air handlers. The refrigerant line is relatively narrow and won’t need such a large opening to pass into your home.
- Long-term energy savings
- Up to 30 years of performance
- Variable-speed operation
- Multiple temperature zones
You don’t have to worry about cool air escaping through leaky ducts before entering your home, and with every air handler boasting its own thermostat, you don’t have to cool empty rooms unnecessarily. All of this has a positive impact on monthly bills. Besides that, ductless units are durable, though homeowners must schedule yearly maintenance and use the units wisely to achieve the full 30 years.
Mini-split systems also offer features like directional airflow. Just move the louvers on the air handler, and the coolness will be directly on you or other occupants. You’ll get wireless access to the thermostats, too.
