Add Comfort Easily With Ductless Mini Splits

A ductless mini-split heating and cooling system is a great option for anyone who is looking for a convenient and flexible option to provide comfort to their home. If you live in an area like Yuma which can get extremely hot during the summer you know that running your air conditioner is expensive. With a ductless air conditioning unit you can cool one room saving the energy needed to cool your entire home thus cut the cost of your monthly utility bills.

Ductless mini splits are also great options for anyone who is adding a room and won’t be able to extend or install necessary ductwork. Old homes that don’t have air ducts for every room would also benefit from the addition of a ductless air conditioner. Unlike one central indoor unit, a ductless mini-split system can have multiple small indoor units that serve individual rooms or zones throughout your home.

There are many benefits to adding a ductless heating and cooling system to your home. They are very energy efficient, small in size and very flexible. Through their ability to provide temperate air to individual rooms, they provide the maximum amount of comfort for your home for a fraction of the energy it would cost to run a standard unit. This is because each area, or zone, has a thermostat which will allow you to set a different temperature for each respective zone. In other words unlike a central air conditioning unit you cool only the areas needed as needed rather than the entire home. Although you can close vents with a central air conditioner to force the tempered air where you want it to go, the energy spent redirecting that air and loss of system capacity through reduced air flow can waste as much as 30 percent of the system’s efficiency.

Installing one of these efficient systems should be done by an expert. A  trained and experianced heating and cooling technician is needed to properly install refrigerant lines for the system coolant, electrical power wiring and drain piping. The professionals at Hansberger Refrigeration have had extensive factory training and can properly select and install a ductless mini split in your home. Contact them today for more information.
