News and Tips
Pollutants can cause a wide range of health problems such as sore eyes, burning in the nose and throat, headaches, or fatigue. Many can make allergies more severe. Respiratory illnesses (such as asthma), heart disease, cancer, and other serious long-term conditions can also be affected by poor air quality. Some at high concentrations, such as carbon monoxide, can even cause death.
However, there are ways to control some of the common problems of the air in your home. Here are a few simple steps to help improve your air quality and reduce your health risks:
A conduit, which houses the power cable, refrigerant tubing, suction tubing, and a condensate drain, links the outdoor and indoor units. These ductless HVAC systems can replace window units, space heaters, and electric baseboard heaters, while providing heat and air conditioning at a much higher efficiency.
If you have a space that is hard to heat or cool and normal duct work or equipment just won't fit, you should consider a mini split system. They are ideal for converted garage spaces or attic bedrooms. Perhaps you have a multi-use commercial building that needs individual room controls. These are a great alternative when you don't have room for more traditional heating systems.
However, the biggest advantage to a ductless HVAC system is the energy efficiency. These systems have no ducts, so the system will only lose less than 5% of its cooling compared to traditional cooling systems which may lose up to 40%. This means that your utility bill will ultimately be lower. Which we can appreciate – especially these days!
The split ductless system can also greatly improve your indoor air quality. It has multi-stage filtration, instead of ducts, which can significantly reduce dust, pollen, and allergens in your home.
Traditional cooling and heating systems with ducts can take days to be installed and can cause disruption. Split systems can be installed and will be ready to operate in a lot less time.
The small size of this equipment and its zoning feature will improve energy efficiency. The ductless cooling and heating systems abide by ENERGY STAR guidelines, making the systems more efficient than the minimum standards required by law.
