Ductless HVAC systems, often referred to as ductless mini-splits, can be an excellent option for homes or buildings without an existing central air conditioning and/or heating system. These units are extremely energy efficient when heating and cooling, and they also give you far more control as you can set the temperature in each room to whatever you wish without impacting the rest of the building. The only real issue is that mini-splits are typically a bit more expensive to install when compared to installing a central heating or cooling unit like an air conditioner, heat pump or furnace. However, ductless systems are still a cost-effective option depending on your home and your specific needs.

How to Know If a Ductless System Is Right for Your Home

Generally speaking, if your home already has a ducted central HVAC system, it usually doesn’t make sense to also install a mini-split system. However, there are a few exceptions, such as if you’re looking to add heating and cooling to your garage or any other part of the home not connected to your central HVAC system.

Mini-splits can also be a good option if you’re planning on building an addition to your home or you have recently added to it. In this situation, you would need to upgrade to larger central HVAC units since it’s likely that your current units wouldn’t be powerful enough due to the increased square footage.

While upgrading your central units would usually be the best option in this situation, it wouldn’t always make sense if your current units aren’t that old and are still working effectively. This is where a mini-split can be a great, cost-effective alternative as it will help take some of the strain off your existing units while also saving you money since you won’t need to have more ductwork installed.

Mini-splits can also be a great option if your home uses electric heating. This is because the heat transfer process these systems use allows them to heat just as effectively while using at least two to three times less energy than other electric heating options.

Five-Star Customer Reviews

Excellent service from start to finish. Joe came out to give us an estimate on what we would need for a new furnace, never pressured us to buy the top of their line just giving us options on what we would need for our home. Then the date set for installation Thomas and Ryan came out on time and did a great job.

Evans Mechanical is an excellent service committed to customer satisfaction and guaranteed quality workmanship. Our water heater burst and they were very responsive. They sent a technician out the same day and it was determined the heater was beyond repair.
