Ductless in connecticutWhen shopping for a new heating and cooling system, many homeowners’ wish lists include efficient operation and improved comfort control. A Mitsubishi ductless system can satisfy both demands.

Below are five advantages to these systems:

1. Flexible Zoning

Whereas traditional systems force cooled and heated air through ducts, ductless heating and cooling systems deliver air directly into different zones. They are comprised of a small outdoor unit and one or more indoor units that require nothing more than mounting capabilities and access to electricity.

2. Easy Installation

The main benefit to these systems is in the name: ductless. Mini-split systems run on small pipes that require a small hole. Homeowners don’t have to worry about rebuilding walls or ceilings around ductwork.

3. Energy Efficient

Ductless systems operate on less power, they are smaller than traditional forced-air systems, and because the temperature-controlled air is delivered directly into a room, there is no loss in efficiency.

4. Improved Indoor Air Quality

With traditional HVAC systems, air ducts must be professionally cleaned on a regular basis. Ductless systems, offer multi-stage filtration that can drastically reduce dust, bacteria, pollen, allergens, and more.

5. Lowered Carbon Footprint

These systems follow ENERGY STAR guidelines, which means they are far more energy-efficient than the minimum standards set by the U.S. federal government. Improved efficiency saves money, of course, but it also helps reduce your total carbon output.

Ductless heating and cooling systems are energy-efficient, environmentally friendly, and completely customizable. They offer homeowners the ability to cool and heat specific zones of their homes to the exact temperature they desire, providing consistent year-round comfort.

More about 5 Advantages of Ductless Heating and Cooling Systems

Below are the best practices when it comes to your cooling system.

  1. Do a test run: Run your system for 10-15 minutes to ensure it is blowing cold air. If it emits a strange odor, makes a loud noise, or only produces hot air. You should immediately shut the A/C unit off and contact Homestead to have one of our experienced techs get it back in shape for the summer season.
  2. Schedule an annual maintenance. We recommend cleaning your system once a year. This helps your system keep running at optimal performance and lowers operating costs. Having a professional maintenance annually will also increase the longevity of the system.
