Is your home cooled by loud, inefficient window AC units that are not really keeping you cool and comfortable during our long, humid Virginia summers?
Or, have you built an addition to your home and your already-installed HVAC system is struggling to keep your original home and the addition cool in summer and warm in winter?
If your answer to either of these questions is yes, and you want to improve the comfort of your home while ensuring efficiency and lower energy bills, the solution to your cooling and heating problem may well be a ductless mini-split system installed by the cooling experts at MSCO Heating & Cooling.
These systems are an ideal fit for our Virginia Beach climate, and they provide cooling and heating that are fully customizable and highly efficient. If you’re considering installing one of these systems, the Mechanical Service Company team can assist you with choosing the right system and installing it quickly to ensure your comfort.
If you’re not already familiar with ductless mini-split systems, please read on as we explain these systems and the advantages they provide.
Mini-split Systems Explained
Briefly explained, a ductless mini-split system is made up of an indoor unit linked to an outdoor compressor. Basically, the compressor works to cool or heat air (depending on the season of the year) that is sent into the rooms of your home by way of the indoor unit.
This process of cooling or heating rooms in your home is accomplished by means of a refrigerant line connecting the indoor and outdoor units, instead of the ductwork used in traditional HVAC units.
With a mini-split system, you have small units in each room that work to either cool or heat that particular room. In summer, the refrigerant in the ductless system cools rooms by absorbing heat and transferring the heat outdoors.
In winter, the system is reversed, as heat from the outside is brought into your home by way of the refrigerant line. And believe it or not, even on the coldest days, there is heat in the air that can be brought into your home via a ductless mini-split system.
Advantages of a Ductless Mini-split System
Here are a few of the ways a ductless mini-split system installed by the cooling experts at MSCO Heating & Cooling can bring added comfort to your home.
- Comfort through zoning – With a mini-split system, each room has its own temperature control, and each can be cooled or heated to a different temperature, depending on your personal level of comfort.
- Greater energy efficiency – You may be surprised to learn that with a traditional HVAC system, about 20 to 30 percent of the cool or warm air in the system is lost because of leaks in the ductwork. Unfortunately, those leaks mean higher energy bills to keep your home comfortable throughout the year as the seasons change.
- Improved indoor air quality – Leaks in traditional ductwork not only take money out of your pocket because of the higher utility bills. Dust, pet dander, and other debris also make their way into the ductwork by way of those leaks and then they’re circulated throughout your house by your central HVAC system.
Ductless systems don’t have this ductwork problem, and the filters in indoor units also tend to be more efficient than those used in central HVAC systems. In other words, the odds are you’ll breathe a lot easier with a ductless system. And that’s a great advantage, especially if anyone in your household has respiratory issues, such as asthma or COPD.
- Great for home additions and older homes – A ductless system is an excellent, efficient way of cooling and heating a new addition to your home without installing a new and larger HVAC system.
Very importantly, they’re also a less costly means of cooling and heating older homes that don’t already have a system of ductwork. With ductless units, there’s no need to install ductwork as the indoor units mounted in the wall are connected directly to the outdoor compressor.
