O’Brien Service Company offers several ductless mini split system options to best fit the needs of your home. A ductless mini split system is a cooling and heating system that does not require any ductwork. This is a great option if your home currently does not have duct work, or if you’re adding an addition to your home. A ductless mini split system consists of one outdoor unit and one or more indoor units. The indoor units can either be installed in your ceiling or mounted to your wall.
The Benefits of a Ductless Mini Split System
A ductless system is an extremely efficient way to heat or cool your home. Not only are the SEER ratings (efficiency rating) high, but it is also a zone-controlled system. This means the system will only heat or cool the room where the indoor unit is located. It will do so without affecting the temperature of the whole home. So if it is an area not used very often, you can set it to a higher/lower temperature when not in the space. Also since there is no duct work, less of the conditioned air will be “lost”.
A ductless mini split system has several other benefits besides being energy efficient. In most cases, it’s an easier installation process since no ductwork is involved. Ductwork also needs to be cleaned in order to avoid buildup of dust and other contaminants. With a ductless mini split system, this issue will be eliminated,and could possibly increase your indoor air quality. Finally, these systems are better for the environment; they use a refrigerant called R410A, which removes the potential for ozone depletion.
