Ductless Mini splits are ideal for getting the most out of your home’s heating and cooling capacity. But as with any heating and cooling system, mini-splits will eventually need maintenance. If you’re a mini-split owner experiencing issues like leaks and improper heating or cooling, then it’s time to bring in the experts.
What is a Mini Split AC and Heater?
A mini-split is a ductless air conditioner that heats and cools small spaces through zone control. These systems can be used for heating and cooling, making them more efficient than other systems.
The main advantage of a mini-split is that it can be installed in any room, which means you don’t have to spend money on installing ducts throughout your home.
Ductless HVAC Systems
When Hutchinson enters your home, they envision your whole home—every single room as a unit of a ductless HVAC system. Though you may scoff at the thought of purely ductless living space, it’s not that crazy a concept.
Imagine that you had your heating and cooling connected, all controlled and zoned to your heart’s desire.
In the ever-evolving, high-efficiency world of HVAC, we like to call this, “total home comfort”, and we mean it.
A Space Without Ductwork
While residents of the Tri-State Area may be stirred by the sight of a ductless HVAC system, home and business owners in more Southern climates have long since embraced the idea. Rather than rely on bulky duct tracts for air conditioning and heating, technicians utilize an outdoor compressor, coupled with any number of indoor units. The resulting ductless mini-split heat pump is more energy efficient, and aesthetically pleasing than other AC solutions.
Ductless Heating and Cooling
Compared to ducted air conditioning, mini splits bring you flexibility and autonomy that is as energy efficient as it is beautiful. With zoned total home comfort, your house as a whole is transformed. Depending on your lifestyle, and your taste, you may elect to divide up your home into multiple zones—equipping each one with its own thermostat.
Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of mini-splits:
1. It’s Efficient
Government-supported research suggests that homes with forced-air heating and cooling systems lose 20 to 30 percent of the air due to their ductwork. With a mini-split system, both heating and cooling are produced at each unit, resulting in no air loss and improved efficiency.
2. It’s Practical
Due to their heating and cooling capabilities, there’s no need to pay for a furnace or baseboards when you have a mini-split. Even though mini-splits cost more upfront, these ductless systems are four times as efficient and much more cost-effective in the long run.
3. It Improves Air Quality
Oftentimes, homeowners forget to change their central air conditioner’s filter. It can be inconvenient depending on where it’s located—which is not the case with mini-splits. Mini-splits have easily-changeable filters at every unit. All you need is a simple stepstool.
4. It Dehumidifies
There’s no need to turn the air on to remove humidity. Mini-splits have a special mode called “reheat dehumidification,” which allows your home to remain at the same temperature while simultaneously removing humidity from the air.
Why waste air conditioning on your whole house, if you’re only trying to warm or cool down those occupied spaces?
Whether you’re a resident of Central or South Jersey, a homeowner of Philadelphia and the surrounding counties, or in the Northern Delaware area, you shouldn’t have to pay for 24/7 air conditioning.
Silent & Comfortable Conditioning
If you’re dreaming of living without dirty and noisy ductwork, Hutchinson is here to rescue you. Older systems drum and clang all day and night, disturbing you as you rest and relax in your room. When your AC is zoned through Mitsubishi Electric, no ducts can bother you. By design, ductless HVAC systems activate ever so quietly, insulated and dampened against vibrations. As we tell our customers, no ducts mean no noise—and that’s something we can promise you.
What’s Better: Mini-Splits or Central A/C?
There’s a lot to love about mini-splits. Mini-splits are efficient, improve air quality, and give homeowners better control over their home’s temperature. But you might be asking yourself what the advantages are to central air conditioning systems.
Unlike obtrusive mini-splits, central air conditioning systems blend seamlessly with your home’s design and decor. Other central A/C advantages include lower upfront costs and less electrical work.
