Ductless mini-split systems are ideal when you need to achieve AC zoning in a multifamily home. They’re also great for homes without ductwork, for added rooms, and for small rooms that your existing ductwork doesn’t reach. You can install a ductless mini-split system in Las Cruces, NM, and enjoy the benefits below.
Allows for Home Zoning
You can use ductless mini-splits to heat or cool individual rooms separately. You can connect up to eight indoor air handlers to one outdoor unit. You can then have a thermostat for each of the zones so that you can have better temperature control.
Compact and Easy to Install
With a ductless mini-split system, there are no bulky ducts that take up so much space. This way, if you live in a small home or condo, you never have to worry about the ductwork taking up your much-needed space.
The system is also relatively easy to install. To connect the indoor and the outdoor unit, you only need a small hole through the wall where the conduit passes. Manufacturers offer different conduit lengths, allowing you to locate the outdoor unit as far as you need.
No Energy Losses Through Duct Leaks
The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that duct losses account for about 30% of the energy a ducted system consumes. If the ducts are in the attic, the energy losses can be considerably higher. Because they have no ducts, these systems don’t suffer from leaks and energy losses.
Different Designs Available
Ductless mini splits are available in different designs. This allows you to take care of your home’s interior design. You can suspend the air handlers from your ceiling or hang them on a wall or pick the floor-standing units.
Most of the modern ductless mini splits have a remote control for ease of use. We can help install the system right for you. Call Dynamic Heating & Cooling, Refrigeration in Las Cruces, NM, and request for ductless AC services.
