Keeping your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer without breaking the bank is one of the greatest challenges faced by homeowners in Northwest Arkansas. If you don’t have a central air system, you’ll have to accept the limitations and inefficiencies of portable air conditioners and space heaters. For smaller homes, especially those without pre-existing ductwork, a ductless mini-split system offers an ideal mix of energy efficiency and design flexibility.
Ductless Mini-Split Systems Provide Flexibility
Ductless systems off flexibility to homeowners in Northwest Arkansas. Unlike ducted systems, you can place a ductless system anywhere within the home. You can tuck an interior control unit in an unobtrusive corner of a room near the ceiling, or you can use a sleek and stylish unit as the focal point of a futuristic design.
Ductless Mini-Split Systems Don’t Waste Energy
Ducts waste energy. A significant chunk of the energy a central air system uses is wasted on heating and cooling leaky ducts instead of your home. Ductless systems use liquid refrigerants and narrow conduits to move heat around your home, reducing the amount of energy wasted on uselessly heating leaky ducts.
Ductless Mini-Split Systems Increase Efficiency
With a ductless system, each room has its own independent control unit and thermostat. If grandma prefers her room to stay warm, she can keep her thermostat turned up without forcing everyone else to wear tank tops in the winter.
You can also take advantage of natural differences between rooms to save on your heating bill. For example, if one room can take advantage of the sun’s heat, you won’t need to use as much energy to keep it at a comfortable temperature.
