Ductless mini splits are excellent ways to enjoy year-round cooling and heating without the many inconveniences that ductwork creates. The majority of homes have ducts for central comfort, and they bring plenty of disadvantages:
- Loss of efficiency because of heat gain through the duct walls in hot weather and heat loss in the cold weather—especially unconditioned places like an attic.
- Ducts collect dust and other debris that reduces performance and also lowers indoor air quality.
- Ducts are susceptible to developing leaks, which seriously impair HVAC system performance and waste energy.
Escaping from all these problems is one reason many homeowners elect to have a ductless system installed rather than a standard ducted one. But this doesn’t mean that ductless mini splits are completely free from trouble. We recommend you watch for signs of faults in a ductless system and call for HVAC service in Cincinnati, OH as soon as you suspect something is wrong.
