Mini Splits are becoming one of the most popular cooling and heating systems. They have plenty of advantages that usually make them the best option. Here are the most common applications for ductless mini splits.
There is no previous ductwork or there is no access
Many installations can’t support adding ductwork because there is no attic or crawl space under the house to put them. This is usually the trouble with apartments. Other problems are that if there is no previous ductwork, even if the space is there the costs are considerably more if you do a ductwork installation.
New construction or renovations
The same reasons of cost and simplicity, when you are either constructing or renovating your house adding ductwork can be really expensive, that’s why mini splits are becoming the preferred method for adding air conditioning and heating. Also if you are renovating your house and you already have the ductwork, it only covers for the specific part of your house, adding a new room could mean adding more ductwork. Adding in a new mini split also provides a first step in adding on HVAC equipment for maximum energy efficiency – since you can condition the new space only when you need added cooling or heating.
System replacements or addressing issues
The use of mini splits is very common as replacements for traditional whole home ducted systems. When is time to replace it you can factor energy savings, lower operating costs and the 2 in 1 advantage of cooling and heating together. Also when the house has a poor quality system due to inadequate ductwork where the air does not really distribute efficiently in the house. A mini split can easily address this problem.
