If you’re looking for a mini-split in Bellevue, WA, we have the answer. If you have a small space, or you’ve added a room on to your home and you don’t want the added expense of running new ducts, a mini-split is an excellent choice for cooling the room.
A mini-split AC can be an exceptional option for keeping a room cool, but some units also provide heat, making them a versatile addition. They work well in garages and bonus rooms where it can be difficult running ducts and setup is typically quick and easy.
Choosing a Mini-Split
HVAC systems cool your whole home to a specified temperature. Mini-split AC systems make it possible to set each room to a different temperature. If you have one room you want to be cooler than the whole house, you won’t run up your electricity bill trying to cool the entire house to that temperature.
Most HVAC systems are designed to handle a specific load. If you add a room to your home, your current HVAC system may be undersized to handle the additional space. Adding a mini-split may be the solution to prevent maxing out your current unit. Window units are also often used in room additions, but these systems require an open window, which can be less secure and allow intruders easier access into the home. A ductless air conditioner is cost affordable and may pay for itself over time.
Some of the main advantages of a mini-split system include:
- Doesn’t require installation of ducts
- Can be more efficient than HVAC systems
- Provide comfort year-round
- Can be installed in smaller spaces
- Offer directional airflow
