What to Do about that Room that Won’t Cool Off
Maybe you live in a two-story home. Or your home came with a bonus room above the garage. Perhaps you’ve recently built an addition onto your home. No matter the reason, at least one of the rooms in your home is not an ideal temperature most of the year.
That’s because, with traditional heating and cooling systems, your home’s comfort depends on heating or cooling the entire house at once. Plus, 25-40% of the efficiency of the system is lost through the ductwork. Certain rooms will have issues that are unavoidable. So what’s a homeowner to do?
Introducing Ductless Mini-Split Systems
Although the ductless mini-split systems seem new to the U.S. market, they have been in use around the world for decades. In fact, 80-90% of the heating and cooling systems in China, Japan and Europe are mini-split systems. The biggest advantage to ductless mini-splits is that you can control the temperature in individual rooms instead of having to heat or cool the entire house. This means you can be comfortable wherever you are in your home without extremely high energy bills. There are many other advantages to the ductless mini-split system:
- Less Ductwork – more savings due to less energy loss through ductwork
- Zoning – heat or cool only the areas you want, not unoccupied rooms
- High SEER Ratings – better efficiency results in lower utility bills
- Easy Installation – installation is faster and easier than traditional AC systems
- Variety – choose from several styles (cassette, compact duct, or wall mounted)
