Ductless mini-splits provide an easy and convenient way to cool or heat a portion of your home, without the invasive ductwork typically associated with central air conditioning. Ductless mini-splits have a variety of applications in both residential and commercial properties, particularly when it is inefficient to heat or cool the entire structure. Mini-splits are a particularly effective solution for additions, sunrooms, and multi-family dwellings in Connecticut.
What Are Ductless Mini-Splits?
Ductless mini-splits are also very energy efficient. They are typically on the “high” range of SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) ratings, and can focus on cooling or heating a specific section of your home. Mini-splits function similarly to central air conditioning, with an outdoor condenser or inverter-driven compressor, an indoor evaporator unit, and refrigerant piping/wiring. Instead of a “central” indoor unit pushing air through the ductwork however (as in central AC), the air is directed into a specific room. The indoor unit is unobtrusively mounted on either a wall or in the ceiling.
The unobtrusive design also makes the ductless mini-split a significant improvement over window units. No more hassles of removing and installing window units in the spring and fall; the ductless mini-split is there for your heating and cooling needs year-round. Cromwell Energy installs a variety of ductless mini-splits, including state-of-the-art LG Systems.
Energy Rebates with Ductless Mini-Splits
Energize Connecticut (EnergizeCT) has incentives and rebates available for high-efficiency ductless system installations. 0% financing is also available (through EnergizeCT) on select systems.
This does not mean that ductless mini-splits are the ideal solution for every home or situation. Central (ducted) air conditioning may still be the best solution for “total home cooling”, especially when the home is larger, or segmented into multiple floors/rooms.
