Save on Energy Bills in Alliance with a Ductless Mini-Split System
Mini-split systems are ideal for Alliance homes heated by ductless systems—hot water, electric heat or radiant panels. They’re also a good way to heat and cool homes without capacity for ductwork, additions, garages and more.
The system—an outdoor unit and a quiet, wall-mounted indoor unit—is often called a mini-split heat pump. Heat pump systems have been used in southern climates for decades to add comfort to homes.
However, mini-splits are more energy efficient because they are zoned systems. This means you can set the heating or cooling in individual areas.
In contrast to conventional electric heating systems, the EPA determined ENERGY STAR®-rated models can cut your heating bills by up to 50 percent. This is due to the fact that mini-splits transfer heat instead of generating it.
A mini-split system could also lower your cooling expenses by 30 percent, in contrast to conventional air conditioning. The system is able to limit energy use because it uses compressors and fans to calibrate cooling speeds.
Because there are no ducts on split systems, you won’t have the energy loss accompanied with ducted systems like central air or heating.
