Mini-Split Benefits | Expanding Ductwork Versus Mini-Split Installation


Undergoing a new home addition in Bee Cave, TX, can be an exhilarating and overwhelming experience all wrapped into one. Apart from picking out your floor design and wall colors, you’ll need to decide on the type of heating system that you’ll be using. Installing a new ductless mini-split system can provide many advantages compared to just expanding the ductwork.

Individual Climate Control

When you just extend the ducting for your centralized HVAC unit, the room’s temperature will be the same as the rest of your home. With a ductless mini-split system, you can set the temperature to whatever you desire. Each ductless unit comes with its own climate control features so that you can set different temperatures for various rooms.

Quieter Operation

When your HVAC system turns on, it can get quite noisy. The fans inside of your system will be trying to force air throughout all the ducting of your home. However, when you opt for a mini-split unit, you’ll get quieter operation as it’s only providing conditioned air to an individual room.

Enhanced Air Quality

As your family spends more time indoors during the winter months, you should concern yourself with your indoor air quality. The ductless mini-split systems offer a multi-level filtration system that works to remove unwanted airborne pollutants from the air inside of your home. With fewer pollutants, your family can breathe in healthier air while relaxing at home.

More Energy Efficient

With the unique functionality of being able to choose what temperature you want a particular room to be, you can help to save energy. This is because the ductless mini-split unit will only operate until that one room reaches your desired temperature. Your typical centralized HVAC unit will run until your whole home reaches an adequate temperature.
