Energy efficiency is personal. While technicians and technology can help you improve energy efficiency in your Birmingham, Alabama home, an energy-efficient lifestyle ultimately comes down to your decisions. The more control you have over your energy efficiency, the better. A ductless mini-split allows you to heat and cool your home on your own terms, putting your energy efficiency into your hands.
What Is a Ductless Mini-Split?
Conventional HVAC systems, likely the one running in your own home, rely on an indoor air handler connected to an outdoor compressor unit, and a furnace system. Once air has been heated or cooled, fans blow that air through a duct system and into your living space. That duct system, while effective in getting air where it needs to be, can sometimes contribute to air loss, and therefore to lower energy efficiency and reduced comfort.
Ductless mini-splits, on the other hand, take the duct network out of the picture and are instead installed directly into the rooms of your home. Ductless units also combine both heating and cooling capability into one unit. Thanks to that combination and the lack of a duct system, ductless mini-splits are far more energy efficient than their conventional cousins, and installing a ductless mini-split reduces many homeowners’ monthly utility costs.
Personalize Efficiency with a Ductless Mini-Split
Ductless mini-splits not only provide greater energy-efficiency, but they also allow you to personalize how to enjoy that efficiency and how to further improve efficiency throughout your home. Without a duct network to limit the ductless mini-split, you can place indoor air handlers anywhere in rooms of your home, which creates distinct heating and cooling “zones.” You can control each zone independently, limiting wasted air in rooms that don’t need as much heating and cooling, and allowing each resident of your home to personalize their comfort.
Thanks to the innovation of the ductless mini-split, you can take control of your energy efficiency and make it your own. To personalize your comfort and energy efficiency with a ductless mini-split, call Total Comfort Heating and Air at (205) 944-1166.
