Can you imagine what summers in Naperville, IL, would be like without central air conditioning, not to mention how you’d get by in the winter without reliable heating? While central HVAC systems do a good job controlling your home’s climate, sometimes they fall short of meeting your needs. When your central unit isn’t keeping you comfortable, a ductless mini-split system can pick up the slack.
Ideal for Room Additions
If you’re adding square footage to your home or converting a basement or attic space into living space, a ductless mini-split system can help you manage the area’s climate control and reduce renovation costs. Extending the existing ductwork into the new space isn’t cheap, and sometimes it’s impossible. Mini-split systems do not need to connect to the existing ductwork. Your central HVAC system will continue to do its job cooling and heating the original areas of the house, and the mini-split system will take care of the new additions.
Achieve Optimal Second-Floor Climate Control
Two-story houses have a common problem: the second floor is usually unbearable hot in the summer, which makes sense because hot air rises. Even if you have your AC on full blast, cooling the second floor is challenging because the nature of a central air system is to deliver the same amount of air to every room in the house. The problem with this design is that the second floor needs more cooled air. Ductless mini-split systems are efficient HVAC equipment that deliver concentrated air to the second floor, cooling it down faster while using less energy.
Meet Everyone’s Comfort Needs
Whether you live in your home with one other person or have a large family, one thing is certain: no two people experience temperature the same way. You might feel cool and comfortable with the thermostat set at 75 degrees Fahrenheit, but your teenage son might prefer 68 degrees in his room. Installing a ductless mini-split system allows you to control the temperature for an individual room and eliminate thermostat disagreements.
