If you’re a Buffalo homeowner preparing your home for the winter, then you might want to look into how ductless mini-systems can help you create a more comfortable, energy efficient home.
Winter Heating Concerns
Preparing for a New York winter sometimes feels like preparing for an ice age. Temperatures can drop overnight, and when that’s paired with moist air, everything outdoors and inside feels significantly colder than it actually is. Those of us who have a fireplace or wood stove have the advantage of drying out the air in their homes—but that’s usually only relegated to one room. Of course, the other option is to turn up the heat… and pay higher energy bills. So how (other than wearing thermal underwear 24/7 or moving to Florida for the colder months) can you survive the winter comfortably and without breaking the bank?
The Advantages of Ductless Mini-Split Systems
That’s where a ductless mini-split system can make all the difference in the world. These systems are highly effective heating and cooling appliances that can easily be installed throughout your home. They have four main advantages:
They allow for individual zoning. Because the system involves installing appliances in every space, you can adjust the temperature according to preference in each room. This allows you to heat often-used rooms more and keep the temperature low in other rooms, like the guest room.
There are no ducts. Unlike central air systems, there are no ducts to clean or worry about. This allows for much more cost-effective installation and maintenance.
They’re quiet. Tired of the racket made by old central air systems and ACs? Then you’ll love your ductless mini-split system. Because they have an indoor and outdoor component, the noisier parts are installed in the outdoor component, resulting in much less noise and a more relaxed experience.
They’re energy-efficient. Since there aren’t any ducts, these systems lose less energy than central air systems. What’s more: you can zone your home according to preference and use. That means you only heat or cool those rooms that are in use and as a result, consume less energy.
