If your energy bill has ever caused you to faint, you’re not the only resident of New Bern, North Carolina, to feel that way. Rising energy costs and inefficient HVAC systems both work against you, costing you tons of money while failing to deliver on comfort. However, there is a solution. Ductless mini-splits are becoming a popular way to provide home comfort, offering better temperature control, zoning, and other benefits. If you aren’t familiar with mini-splits, here are a few reasons to consider going ductless.
As the name implies, ductless mini-splits don’t require any ductwork in the home. This means they’re perfect for retrofitting old homes, remodels, home additions, and even new construction. Most units only require that you have a small space to mount them in your home, as well as an outdoor compressor that’s comparable to exterior air conditioning units. Not only does this make it easier to create a comfortable living area, but it also gives you more room.
Zoning is a newer feature of modern HVAC systems, and it’s one of the best. Zoning allows you to turn on the air only in rooms that you occupy. Traditional HVAC systems can do this, but not without costly additions. If you’re in one room, you don’t need to heat or cool the rest of the house, so turn the other units off manually or with the touch of a button. The result is less energy consumption and a temperature you’ll love.
Save Money and the Planet
Because you’re only using mini-splits in the rooms you frequent, that instantly helps reduce your energy usage. Plus, the air comes straight from the source without winding through ducts. This process cuts some of the workload, and you’ll enjoy a smaller monthly bill and take satisfaction in your reduced carbon footprint.
With a ductless mini-split system, you get an advanced heating and cooling system that’s more convenient and efficient than older central units. To step into the next generation of HVAC, call J&J Mechanical, Inc. for all your installation needs. You can reach us at 855-800-1341.
