Ductless Mini-Splits in Buford, Gainesville, Braselton, Johns Creek, Sugar Hill, and Cumming GA
Ductless systems, often called mini-splits, are an increasingly popular cooling option for homeowners. Pruitt Heating & Air, Inc. specializes in installing, repairing and servicing ductless systems. We’re eager to share the benefits of ductless air conditioning and help you decide whether it’s a good option for you.
Is Ductless AC Right for Your Home?
The answer to that question is, “it depends.” Do you have a room that’s always hotter or colder than other rooms? Do you need to extend heat and AC to a room addition? Are you interested in an all-in-one system vs. separate AC and heating systems? If the answers are yes, then you should explore ductless air conditioning.
Like central air systems, mini-splits have an outdoor compressor unit and an indoor fan unit. Unlike conventional systems, which have one central fan unit cooling the entire home, mini-splits can have multiple indoor units. The indoor units link to the outdoor unit via a conduit. Ductless cooling is easy to install, enhances your comfort and reduces energy consumption.
Boost Your Comfort with Ductless AC
Ductless cooling offers the capability to divide your home into zones. Individual thermostats control each zone, enabling you to control the temperature in each area to fit your preference. This on-demand capability means you have precise control and can target your comfort to suit your needs. With the Wi-Fi connection that allows control of your environment through your smartphone, comfort is just a touch away.
Because Americans spend so much time indoors, air quality is of prime importance to homeowners. Mini-splits have multi-stage filtration systems that clear your air of pollutants. Since there’s no ductwork, you eliminate a potential breeding ground for bacteria and other allergens that are harmful to your family’s health.
Ductless AC Delivers Greater Efficiency
The direct cooling that mini-splits offer is energy efficient. Some of the efficiency stems from the elimination of energy loss as conditioned air moves through ductwork. Experts estimate this energy loss can be up to 30 percent. As the air leaks out, you’re frequently left with hot or cold spots throughout your home. Because you only use the exact amount of energy needed to cool each zone, you also gain efficiency through reduced energy consumption.
Technological advances also account for increased efficiency. When ductless mini-split systems came into prominence in 2000, they featured a SEER rating of 12. Today, mini-splits feature SEER ratings up to 30, higher than conventional AC systems.
