Is a Ductless Mini-Split System Right for Your Home?

Monday, December 17th, 2018

If you are considering a new heating system for your home, it is important to consult with a professional HVAC technician before making any final decisions. We understand that selecting the right system can be a daunting task—there are a lot of great options to choose from, and each has their benefits and drawbacks depending on your own individual circumstances. But don’t fret! Bayonet Plumbing, Heating, & Air Conditioning can help you select the perfect system for your needs!

For many homeowners, ductless splits, also known as mini-split systems, are becoming a preferred option. These systems can be great for keeping your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Many Florida homeowners opt for this system for the convenience and year-round comfort! Below, we have provided some of the benefits that ductless systems have to offer. But remember, before you make any decisions be sure to contact us to schedule ductless services in Tampa, FL.

What is a Ductless Mini-Split System?

A ductless system is a heat pump that does not rely on ducts. Instead, it utilizes air handlers installed throughout the house rather than a centralized blower or coil unit. Ductless systems are able to act as both heaters and air conditioners, thus making them a popular and convenient choice. The system is made up of an outdoor condenser unit and one or more indoor units that contain the air handler and blowers that help to circulate air. Refrigerant lines are all that connect the outdoor unit to the indoor units, making installation convenient and affordable.

Benefits of a Ductless System

They’re Versatile

As mentioned above, a ductless system provides both heating and cooling without the need for ducts. If you live in an older home that does not have space for ductwork or doesn’t have it installed, a ductless system can be a great alternative.

Installation is Convenient

Installing ductwork can be a difficult and expensive process depending on the layout of your home.  Installing a ductless system is less invasive and can be up and running in as little as one day.

They’re Cost Effective

Switching to a ductless system can save you and your family a lot of money. Ductless systems operate on less power than other systems simply due to the fact they recycle heated air rather than generating it from nothing. In addition, homeowners can control the temperature of the air going into each room, thus increasing efficiency. Mini-split systems allow homeowners to create “zones” in their homes, meaning they don’t have to heat or cool the rooms that aren’t being used.

They’re Energy Efficient

Since mini-splits have no ducts, they avoid the energy losses associated with the ductwork of forced-air systems. Duct losses can account for more than 30% of energy use. In addition, a ductless system is considered to be a more efficient choice than a standard window or portable unit.

Our friendly technicians at Bayonet can help you decide if a ductless split, or mini-split, system is right for your home. We offer installation, repair, and maintenance services to ensure that your new system runs efficiently and effectively for years to come!
