A ductless or mini-split HVAC system is a great alternative to a conventional commercial system. As the name suggests, ductless HVAC systems don’t need ductwork to circulate warm or cool air throughout the building. And compared to a ducted heating and cooling system, a mini-split HVAC system is more energy efficient.
Superior Air, your trusted HVAC and air conditioning maintenance contractor, elaborates more on the advantages of a ductless HVAC system below:
More Precise Temperature Control & Better Indoor Comfort for Tenants
Ducted HVAC systems are controlled using a single thermostat, which sets the temperature for the entire building. The problem with this approach is that the desks near the perimeter of the building–which are close to the windows that either let in too much heat or let heat escape–are often either too hot or too cold. This means if you adjust the thermostat to ensure the temperature near the perimeter is at a comfortable level, the center of the building then becomes too hot or too cold.
An easy solution to said problem is to install a multi-zone ductless HVAC system, which is composed of a single large compressor and several air handlers that can distribute warm or cool air to individual rooms. The refrigerant (the substance responsible for absorbing heat) flowing to each zone can be modified, which means the temperature in each room can be adjusted individually.
Lower Cooling & Heating Costs
One drawback of using ducted systems is that warm air can leak through gaps in the ductwork, which can in turn add hundreds of dollars a year to your utility bill. Since a mini-split HVAC system doesn’t need ductwork, it can lower your cooling costs by up to 30%.
