Ductless Heating and Cooling
As far as the heating and cooling are concerned about your home main air conditioners or furnaces are not the only options. As a matter of fact, one of the cheaper options that are also very efficient is the ductless the heating and cooling systems which are also known as a mini-split. These HVAC systems come with a wall-mounted unit that is indoors and an outdoor unit which is usually a compressor. Mini-splits or awesome for cooling or heating and they are really efficient when it comes to small spaces such as apartments or bedrooms or even basement. However, when it comes to a larger zone with three up to six rooms the mini-split won't do much work. If you got a new house or you're planning to put a new air conditioner to your kid's bedroom a mini-split will do just fine.
When it comes to the price of a ductless system is cheaper than a superior AC system. Most mini-split systems have a cost between $800-$6000 and they have different powers and different levels of energy. A really good model would cost more but it would also provide you with more energy when it comes to heating and cooling larger areas and it could also come with different features that will spare energy. We advise mini-splits for homeowners and not as much for business owners.
Energy Efficiency and Performance
Not all mini-split systems give you the same performance and have the same efficiency to spare us energy. Some systems have different capacities for cooling heat for various areas. Having a low system will waste more energy while having a less powerful AC might not work so good to keep the temperatures at stable levels. That's why we advise you to choose a mini-split system that is suitable for the areas that you are going to use it for.
The type of compressor that is used for the mini-split system has an effect on the amount of energy that is going to be spent. The split system uses usually a variable speed compressor or a rotary one. Rotator compressor is the kind of compressor that is always turning on and off to maintain stable temperatures and operating at full or no power. On the other hand, the other type of compressor the variable speed runs at different states keeping the temperature stable in that area. Difference compressors help you save money on consumed energy.
Besides the basic features of cooling and heating, the mini-split systems come with additional features. These additional features are humidity control, wireless remote, adjustable airflow, programmable timers, etc.
