How Ductless Air Conditioning Saves Money

ductless-blower-and-remoteThe ductless mini split is a modern marvel of air conditioning. It’s no wonder homeowners are often confused as to why the initial cost of them can be hefty compared to other, more conventional air conditioning systems. However, contrary to this belief, the ductless mini-split system can save you a lot of money in the long run.

New Hampshire summers are hot, and the winters can be brutally cold. Wouldn’t it be convenient to have a single heat pump system to both cool and heat your home when you need it? Why purchase an air conditioner and a heating system when you could kill two birds with one stone and potentially save yourself a nice sum of money?

It’s definitely possible when installing ductless air conditioning in New Hampshire.

The Design of the Ductless Mini-Split

In order to figure out how much money you could save by going duct-free, we’re going to first have to talk about what the ductless mini split does differently from your standard central air system.

Dual Comfort System

After spending the time and money to install an air conditioning system, winter will be here before you know it. Why not save big and install both at the same time? A mini split is a heat pump system which means it moves the hot air from inside your home to the outside. If you haven’t caught on yet, this means that the process can also reverse, to collect heat from the outside of your home and move it to the inside! A ductless system will save you money on the installation of a heating system.

Precise Heating/Cooling Controls

A ductless system can also be comprised of up to four indoor air handlers connected to one outdoor unit. Since each air handler operates independently of one another, you can conveniently install separate thermostats for each room or area you’d like to condition. Not using your dining room much during the heatwave? Why bother cooling it? It saves money and energy at the press of a button.

No Ductwork, No Problem

Conventional central air-cooling systems require extensive ductwork installation. This can get expensive and is practically impossible on smaller or older homes. Not only that, but air ducts should be cleaned regularly too. As the name implies, a ductless AC system doesn’t require these ducts and can be just as effective without them.

High Efficiency and Performance

The initial investment may be high for a ductless air conditioner, but the savings yield overtime can be massive. These systems function just as efficiently as conventional central air systems, with heating performance levels equal to other heat pumps. Don’t fret over the initial price—low operating costs can offset the high initial cost.

Investment Options

We understand, air conditioning and heating can be an expensive investment. Luckily, there are options out there to make the burden a bit easier to bear. Tax credits offered by your local government could help you afford to upgrade to a new system that uses less energy and benefits the environment. Also, many manufacturers offer rebates on their newer, more efficient models, which could be a significant detail in your decision to upgrade your HVAC.
