Once popular only in Europe and Asia, Americans are beginning to discover that a ductless mini-split system might be the answer to their comfort dilemma. Lifestyle Comfort Solutions sets the record straight on some common misconceptions about ductless mini-split technology.
Ductless Systems Now Work in Colder Climates
Ductless technology has come a long way since the technology’s early days. As little as 10 years ago, ductless systems struggled in cold climates. Today, major manufacturers offer extended capacity units. These cold-climate ductless heat pumps perform in weather as cold as 5 degrees.
Performance vs. Looks
Homeowners wonder if they’ll enjoy living “with a box on the wall.” Happily, today’s models come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and configurations. Moreover, homeowners enjoy the ductless systems’ performance and energy efficiency. They decide that the advantages of the ductless system outweigh their concern about how the unit looks.
Ductless Systems and the Smart Home
More and more, American homeowners demand smart homes and the connected experience. When selecting a ductless system, its ability to connect with smart thermostats and Alexa/Google may be limited But, ductless system manufacturers continually introduce their own smart thermostat and connected controls and apps for their equipment.
Manufacturers Continually Improve the Ductless Mini-Split System
Granted, some min-split systems are noisy. Some communities even adopted noise control ordinances aimed at these units. However, continual improvement is being made. Some ductless systems are even quieter than most window AC units. Some of today’s units are so quiet they can’t be heard at all.
