We just posted about the increased home comfort that ductless mini-split heating and cooling systems can bring to the home. However, there’s a rather large list of benefits these units can offer that extends beyond the area of comfort. Efficiency is often the name of the game for these systems and often the reason many homeowners are jumping to this type of heat pump units for their heating and cooling needs.
We’ve outlined the increased comfort benefits of ductless mini-splits, but let’s take a moment to discuss a few ways in which these systems can have an extremely positive impact on your overall energy usage, and wallet, through greater efficiency:
· Efficiency for every room in the home.Heating and cooling systems often have to work very hard to get all areas of your home to a desirable and comfortable temperature. Whether it’s cooling the house on those sweltering summer days or warming things up when the thermometers are sinking, temperature management can be inefficient and expensive without the right equipment and systems. Ductless mini-split systems provide easy-to-manage solutions for many different areas of your home, which means the system, as a whole, doesn’t have to work as hard to push hot or cold air from one source to all areas of the house. The ability to manage individual areas separately can greatly increase your home’s performance and efficiency.
· Less energy means lower bills.Ductless mini-split heat pumps, on average, use 25 to 50 percent less energy to heat your home. This means your monthly energy bills, especially during peak usage times during the year, will be significantly reduced. Because temperature management can be controlled differently for different areas of your home, you’re able to focus energy usage to very specific sections and times. Heating or cooling rooms that are rarely used can be a thing of the past. Mitsubishi mini-split heat pump units rank among the top energy saving heating options on the market, often times up to 26 SEER (seasonal energy efficiency ratio).
· All-in-one solutions. Ductless mini-split systems, like those manufactured by Mitsubishi and offered by Bel Red, can meet not only heating needs for your home but also cooling and air conditioning needs. These units bring the same levels of high efficiency to cooling your home. This allows homeowners to get rid of those noisy, clunky and extremely inefficient air conditioning window units.
