Benefits of a Ductless Mini Split System in Oradell

Monday, November 12th, 2012

With all of the home heating and air conditioning systems on the market today it can be difficult to determine which heating and cooling option is best for your Oradell home. Discussing your heating and air conditioning options with a local professional service provider is the most fail-proof way to ensure that you are investing in the best heating and cooling system for your home and personal heating and cooling habits. If you are not familiar with ductless mini splits and the potential benefits that they hold for your home and comfort take a few minutes to review this helpful information from the home comfort professionals at DB Heating & Cooling. You may decide that a ductless mini split system is the best choice for your home, and DB Heating & Cooling can help you verify that decision.

First of all, the most obvious benefit of a ductless mini split system is right in the name. This heating and air conditioning option completely eliminates the need for ductwork in your home. While a properly installed, well-maintained duct system can efficiently and effectively circulate conditioned air throughout your home, ductwork is often one of the biggest reasons for inefficient energy use. By removing ductwork from the equation, ductless mini splits also remove this risk. A simple conduit containing refrigerant and power lines is all that is needed to connect the outdoor condenser unit to the indoor, wall-mounted air handlers that this type of heating and air conditioning system uses. These air handlers, up to four per outdoor unit, heat and cool the rooms of your home individually and directly.

The use of these multiple air handlers also makes it easy to create temperature control zones in your home and to maintain individual temperatures within each zone. This is a great way to boost energy efficiency in your home, helping to reduce energy costs. You no longer have to heat empty bedrooms because you want to keep the dining or living rooms comfortable. Likewise you choose to lower the temperature in the kitchen if you are doing a lot of cooking and begin to overheat while still keeping the rest of the house perfectly warm.

Whether you want to cut down on the amount of energy that you use in your home or simply avoid the cost of a duct system installation, ductless mini splits may be the solution that you’re looking for. If you think that a ductless mini split system installation is right for your Oradell home, call the heating and air conditioning professionals at DB Heating & Cooling. We’ll help you make the best decision for your comfort.
