Reduced Energy Costs
If your air conditioner is more than 10 years old, chances are good that it’s not running very efficiently. Air conditioning units made today use half of the energy their predecessors used to deliver the same amount of cold air. Considering that cooling your home makes up 70% of your power consumption during the summer months, an upgrade could save you hundreds of dollars a year in electricity costs.
Better Climate Control
Traditional air conditioning systems operated with a binary approach – either on or off. When temperatures soared, the system would kick into high gear until the desired level was reached, then promptly shut down. This resulted in noticeable temperature fluctuations throughout the day. In contrast, modern units feature variable speed systems, providing precise cooling. By maintaining consistent temperature and humidity levels, these modern systems ensure your home remains comfortable without the abrupt shifts of older models.
Quieter HVAC Systems
Ductless Mini Split
Mini splits are a kind of air source heat pump, and like other heat pumps, they consist of an outdoor and an indoor unit and are much more efficient than even the most energy efficient AC or furnace, leading to reduced energy bills all year round. A mini split’s outdoor condenser unit is much smaller than that of a regular heat pump, so it doesn’t require as much space outside. The majority of mini splits offer both cooling and heating settings, letting you stay comfortable all year long for less, but they also come as straight cooling systems, in case all you’re trying to do is only cool a space (like a garage, for example).
There are two main types of mini splits: ductless and ducted.
Ducted Mini Splits
Ducted mini splits function much like traditional split heat pump systems and come paired with a ducted air handler. What separates them is that they have inverter driven compressors that intelligently deliver the exact amount of heating and cooling needed at any given time. They have the ability to ramp their airflow and compressor speed up and down depending on how hot (or cold) it is outside, in order to keep the temperatures in your home optimal and provide you with constant comfort. This type of system is also known as a variable capacity or variable speed system. Get yours installed by submitting a Service Request!
