If you’ve made the decision to replace your existing Taylors, SC, air conditioner, you may find yourself looking for alternative ways to keep your home cool this summer. While you may want to install a new system exactly like your old one, it’s important that you understand all of the options available to you. There are several benefits of installing a ductless mini-split in your home.
1. Increased Control
Zoning refers to the ability to control the temperature in certain areas of your home without wasting electricity, keeping unused areas cool. For instance, if the upstairs rooms in your home aren’t used often, keeping them as cool as the rest of your home is pointless. A ductless mini-split allows you to focus your home’s energy on keeping the areas that you use the most comfortable.
2. More Energy Efficiency
The primary benefit of zoning is the fact that it is a more energy-efficient option for cooling your home during the rising temperatures of summer. When your air conditioner has to cool your entire home, it requires more electricity. Conversely, cooling certain areas of your home requires less electricity which produces lower monthly utility bills.
3. Improved Indoor Air Quality
Since a traditional AC system relies on a complex system of air ducts, there is always a threat of dust and debris finding their way into those ducts. In turn, those airborne pollutants make their way into the air that you breathe. In contrast, ductless systems can filter those contaminants out and may improve your home’s indoor air quality.
