Save on Energy Bills in Houston with a Ductless Mini-Split System
Mini-split systems are ideal for Houston homes heated by ductless systems—hot water, electric heat or radiant panels. They’re also a good alternative to heat and cool homes without room for ductwork, additions, garages and more.
The system—an outdoor unit and a quiet, wall-mounted indoor unit—is often referred to as a mini-split heat pump. Heat pump systems have been used in southern climates for decades to add comfort to homes.
However, mini-splits are more energy efficient because they are zoned systems. This means you can set the heating or cooling in one area.
In contrast to traditional electric heating systems, the EPA confirmed ENERGY STAR®-rated models can cut your heating expenses by up to 50 percent. This is due to the fact that mini-splits transfer heat instead of creating it.
A mini-split system could also decrease your cooling bill by 30 percent, in contrast to conventional air conditioning. The system is able to save on energy because it uses compressors and fans to calibrate cooling speeds.
Because there are no ducts on split systems, you won’t have the energy loss associated with ducted systems like central air or heating.
