A mini-split in Philadelphia, PA, could be your best option when it comes to cooling your home. This system is basically a ductless air conditioner and does exactly what a heat pump does. Using an air handler, a compressor, and refrigerant, it absorbs heat from your home and transfers it outside, where it’s released. The air handler, in the case of mini-splits, is a compact device that fits on almost any wall rather than a bulky unit that goes in the attic or basement. You’ll find that this system, because of its compactness and its lack of vents, can be an energy-efficient addition to your property.
Philadelphia Mini-Split Systems: The Basics
A ductless AC is meant for individual rooms, but because one compressor can typically link to eight mini-splits, you could possibly rely on these for whole-house cooling. Other times, people will install a ductless AC for an outbuilding or for a historic home where putting in ductwork is out of the question.
Installing these systems is simple. You can easily place the compressor in a discreet location because it can link to the air handler(s) from as far as 50 feet away. The refrigerant line will require a hole in the wall, but this only needs to be three inches big. As we mentioned above, the air handler is compact; it also boasts a stylish look that won’t make it clash with your furniture or other appliances.
You’ll love how mini-splits will:
- Save you on your monthly bill
- Provide you with zoning controls
- Direct airflow the way you want
- Last a long time
The energy savings can be tremendous because so much cool air can be lost through vents and ducts. Besides that, directional airflow lets you aim the air right at you, improving comfort. With a thermostat to each air handler, your family can adjust temperatures accordingly, and you won’t ever need to cool an unoccupied room. Ductless heat pumps can last a good 30 years if you maintain them well.
