1.) Energy Efficiency
One of the biggest benefits of ductless mini-split systems is that they offer reduced energy consumption. This is largely because they don’t rely on ductwork, which accounts for more than 30% of the energy air conditioning systems consume. They also enable you to heat or cool specific areas of the home rather than the entire house. Even better, they use inverter technology to modulate compressor speed and adjust the amount of refrigerant sent to the indoor unit, improving energy efficiency.
2.) Improved Indoor Air Quality
Mini-split air conditioners also play an active role in improving indoor air quality. For starters, they don’t rely on ducts to distribute air. This means there’s reduced potential for dirt, dust, mold, and other allergens to accumulate and spread throughout your home. Secondly, ductless systems utilize multi-stage filtration to capture airborne contaminants like pollen, pet dander, and dust. By removing these allergens from the air, these systems help prevent issues associated with poor indoor quality like allergies.
3.) Flexible Installation Options
Since they don’t require ductwork for installation, you can mount your ductless mini-split system in various locations. This makes them ideal for rooms that don’t have existing ductwork or homes that don’t have the space for bulky ductwork. These systems are small and compact. As a result, they’re an excellent choice for spaces like condos and apartments. They’re adaptable to different configurations and you can mount them on walls, ceilings, or even the floor.
4.) Minor Maintenance
Another benefit of ductless systems is that they require minimal maintenance. You never have to worry about cleaning or maintaining ducts, which get clogged with dirt. There are also no duct leaks to worry about. Ductless air conditioners have a simpler design than traditional ones. This means fewer parts to clean and maintain, hence reducing maintenance costs. It makes it easier to keep the system running smoothly in the long run.
5.) Increased Home Value
Property with ductless mini-split systems will prove a worthy investment when you decide to sell. That's because many buyers love homes with reduced energy consumption and improved indoor air quality. According to a study by the Canadian Real Estate Association, ductless systems can increase a home's value by an average of $4000 to $5000. It also found that these systems are particularly appealing to younger buyers. In fact, 80% of respondents aged 18-34 years consider them a desirable feature!
