Advantages of Ductless Mini-Split Heating and Cooling Units
“Ductless heating and cooling systems are the best thing to hit East Nashville since the Peach Truck”
We totally made that up. But if you’re anything like us, nothing says summer more than a luscious, juicy peach from the East Nashville Farmers Market. Well, juicy peach and a cool place to enjoy it. With summer temperatures settling in, maybe the need for AC is a little more pressing than produce.
Which is why we’re such big fans of ductless mini-split HVAC systems and why we think you should be, too. These slick systems — which are also sometimes referred to as split systems, mini-split systems, or split-ductless systems — are a cost-effective way to condition hard-to-reach rooms by replacing noisy and inefficient window air conditioners or costly electric baseboard heaters.
If you’ve ever wondered what those slender little outdoor units were, well, they’re mini-splits.
We’ve installed mini-splits in garage renovations, home additions, attic conversions, new construction, cozy cottages, rambling Queen Annes and condos throughout East Nashville.
Here are a few benefits to heating and cooling your East Nashville home with a ductless mini-split system:
1. Enjoy the Silence
Words are very unnecessary. Shhhhhh… There’s no need to shout! Unlike traditional window-shakers, ductless mini-splits are super quiet. So quiet that you’ll be able to hear your kids hollering from your neighbor’s house. Or your neighbor hollering at your kids. Bonus!
2. Save Money
There you have it, the number one reason why homeowners switch to an efficient ductless heating and cooling system is cost savings. Why is the fact that split systems save you money listed second? We just really liked our Depeche Mode reference.
3. Mini-Split Flexibility
Since ductless mini-splits are, by definition, free of ducts, they can go just about anywhere and can deliver deliciously conditioned air wherever you need it.
4. Improve Indoor Air Quality
Since there are no dirty ducts to worry about, the air you breathe is cleaner and clearer than ever! Most mini-splits feature multi-stage filtration, which reduces dust, bacteria, pollen, and other airborne particulates. Not only that, but you won’t have to worry about having your ducts cleaned.
5. Quick and Easy Installation
As much as we’d like to hang out and spend a week installing a new ducted HVAC system, we’re pretty happy to get you up and running in a day. Instead of yards of ductwork, most mini-splits require just a small three-inch opening. There’s no need to rebuild your home or give up valuable living space to ductwork.
6. Minimize Energy Consumption
Ductless mini-split air conditioning and heating systems follow ENERGY STAR guidelines, they’re environmentally friendly, and they’re totally customizable.
We install Samsung and Mitsubishi residential and light commercial air conditioners and heating units. These ductless units are highly efficient, quiet, and allow you to control the temperature and humidity levels in hard-to-control areas such as a master suite, a new addition to an old East Nashville home, or that fancy backyard Airbnb you just built.
