Save on Energy Bills in Long Island with a Ductless Mini-Split System
Mini-split systems are ideal for Long Island homes heated by ductless systems—hot water, electric heat or radiant panels. They’re also a good way to heat and cool homes without capacity for ductwork, additions, garages and more.
The system—an outdoor unit and a nearly noiseless, wall-mounted indoor unit—is often called a mini-split heat pump. Heat pump systems have been used in southern climates for decades to heat and cool homes.
However, mini-splits are more energy efficient because they are zoned systems. This means you can change the heating or cooling in individual areas.
When compared to regular electric heating systems, the EPA confirmed ENERGY STAR®-rated models can lower your heating bills 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 reduce your cooling expenses by 30 percent, compared to conventional air conditioning. The system is able to save on energy because it uses compressors and fans to regulate cooling speeds.
Because there are no ducts on split systems, you won’t have the energy loss involved with ducted systems like central air or heating.
