Installing a Ductless Mini-Heat Split in Your Hammond or St. Tammany Parish Home
Sometimes, Hammond and St. Tammany Parish homeowners have a specific home cooling or heating challenge that can’t be met by servicing, repairing, or installing a traditional heating and air unit.
You may have:
An add-on that wasn’t connected to your existing heating and air system, or be planning on building an additional room soon
A sunroom or bonus room that doesn’t have access to your heating and air system
An upstairs room – where heat rises – that faces the afternoon sun and always seems hotter than the rest of the house
An older or historic home that has no heating and air system at all
If your home fits any of these cases, keep reading to learn how a ductless mini-split selected and installed by Hammond and St. Tammany Parish heating and air experts Three Rivers Services can help you.
Three Rivers Services is Your Trusted Resource for Everything You Need to Know About Ductless Mini-Splits
Many of our clients who choose to install a ductless mini-split in their home have never even heard of this heating and cooling system before they consult with us. They’ve just explained their problem to us, and our heating and air specialists have used their advanced industry knowledge to come up with a creative solution.
Ductless mini-splits are not like a traditional home AC and heating system. Here’s the basics you need to know about a ductless mini-split to decide if installing one in your home is right for you.
As its name suggests, a ductless mini-split has no ductwork. Instead it has an outdoor compressor/condenser and an indoor air-handling unit.
Ductless mini-splits are designed to cool and heat a specific room or zone in your home. One system isn’t a solution for your entire home, but in some cases, it’s best to install ductless mini-splits throughout your home to get optimal delivery of conditioned air.
In the summer, a ductless mini-split works by pushing the hot air in your home outside of your house. This keeps you cool when you need it most.
In the winter, a ductless mini-split reverses action, instead taking all the warmth it can get from the outside air, and pushing it inside your zone or space to keep you and your family warm and cozy.
Benefits of a Ductless Mini-Split
In addition to cooling and heating the spaces listed above, ductless mini-splits offer energy cost savings.
You see, an AC and heating system with ductwork loses some of its conditioned air due to gaps and cracks in the ductwork. This is just an expected and accepted fact in the industry.
But with most homes in Hammond and St. Tammany Parish having their AC and heating system’s ductwork in their attic, this lost air does nothing for you. As much as 30% of energy consumption is lost due to this condition, which we in the industry call “duct loss.” That means up to 30% of the air you pay via your electricity bill to cool or heat up never reaches you and your family.
Ductless mini-splits don’t have ductwork, so they don’t experience duct loss. They’re a more efficient solution, and use less energy. Together, this translates into electricity bill savings.
