Do you want to save money on summer cooling costs? Ductless AC can keep your Richmond, VA home affordably cool all summer, and installation takes only hours. Here are some ways that a mini-split system can save you money while keeping you cucumber-cool:
Incorporates State-of-the-art Inverter Technology
Traditional air conditioners operate on an all-or-nothing principle. Mini-splits use innovative inverter technology to automatically adjust compressor speeds according to how much cool air is currently needed to maintain the desired temperature. That reduces wear and tear on the compressor and permits the unit to enjoy a longer lifespan. Central air conditioners last for about 15 years with proper maintenance. Ductless air conditioners can last for decades. With annual maintenance, a mini-split system can provide over 20 years of dependable indoor cooling.
Eliminates Energy Losses Through Ductwork Leaks
Up to 30 percent of heated and cooled air can be lost through ductwork leaks. With ductless HVAC, you’ll no longer be paying for conditioned air that escapes, and your energy bills will reflect the savings. Over time, ducts accumulate a thick coating of dirt, grunge, and other obstructions. Central air conditioners have to use extra energy to push through all that sludge. That creates unnecessary wear and tear on equipment which, in turn, causes higher utility bills.
Lets You Create Custom Comfort Zones
Ductless air conditioners have an outdoor unit and one or more indoor units. Each indoor unit governs the temperature in a specific zone and has its own remote thermostat. No longer must you cool the entire house just to chill in the family room. If you opt for programmable thermostats, you can automatically maintain different temperatures in different rooms to maximize cooling efficiency.
A high SEER rating can increase your savings even more. Your HVAC contractor can suggest a ductless mini-split cooling system with a SEER rating that will give you maximum energy efficiency.
