Building a New Home Addition? Invest in a Ductless Mini-Split

 New Home Addition

A new addition to your Virginia Beach, Virginia, home will increase its value and make your family more comfortable. A ductless mini-split HVAC system is efficient and easy to install in this new space.

Ductless heaters and air conditioners have one or more indoor units connected to an outdoor unit by a small conduit. That way, you won’t have to connect new ductwork to your current system, and your existing HVAC system won’t have to work harder to heat or cool a larger space. A ductless mini-split system can keep your utility bills low, give you excellent indoor air quality and provide zoning.

Lower Utility Bills

With a ductless system, leaks in ductwork won’t waste energy. Also, the system won’t need to use as much power as a conventional heater or air conditioner because its fans don’t have to move air through ducts. Without ductwork, you can avoid expensive repairs as well.

Excellent Indoor Air Quality

Dust, dirt, mold, pollen, and other contaminants can collect in ductwork and spread to the rest of your home. Pests can even make nests or die in ducts, creating unpleasant smells. These pollutants can cause allergy and asthma symptoms, headaches, eye irritation, and other problems. Without ductwork, the indoor air quality in your new addition will be better than in a comparable space with ducts.

Zoning Capabilities

Many ductless mini-split HVAC systems have several indoor air handling units, and they all have separate thermostats. You can control each unit as well as your original system from a central programmable thermostat, and some models let you change settings through your computer or smartphone.

With zoning, you can turn down the heating or air in rooms you’re not using. A family member can also change the temperature in the room he or she is using without making the rest of the house uncomfortable.
