When it comes to heating and cooling homes around Haverhill, most people think of furnaces and air conditioners using ducts to heat and cool the entire home. If you spend most of your time in only one or two rooms, you might find yourself spending more on energy costs because you are heating and cooling parts of the house you aren’t using.

Mini-splits systems offer a ductless HVAC option that allows you to control the temperature in individual rooms or across multiple rooms, depending on your preferences. A mini-split system typically consists of a wall-mounted indoor unit with an outside compressor., The indoor air handlers can also be suspended from the ceiling or mounted into drop ceilings. As a result, mini-split systems are a perfect choice for climate control in bedrooms, enclosed porches, home offices and more.

Here are just a few of the benefits that mini-split systems can offer homes:

Adequate coverage: Mini-split systems make it easy to individually target rooms or zones of your house, providing comfort to meet your specific needs.

Space efficiency: The convenience of mini-split systems starts with the size of the units. Significantly smaller than traditional HVAC systems, mini-splits have a very small footprint. Wall-mounted units are usually installed above eye-level and can seamlessly blend in to any space. The outdoor units can operate efficiently up to 50 feet away from your home. Because of their smaller size, mini-split systems also produce much less noise than traditional HVAC systems, meaning you’ll enjoy quiet comfort.

Easy to install: Since they aren’t connected to duct work, mini-split systems can be easily integrated to your home. Building a new addition to your house or remodeling your attic? Mini-splits are a great solution both in terms of cost and building impact. They can easily be added to hydronic systems (hot water heating), space heaters, radiant panels and used in tandem.

Less likely to create air leakage: Window units also offer targeted cooling to rooms. But because of the way they are installed, window units can produce air leakage around the unit in the window frame. Mini-splits require only a small hole to be drilled into the wall to connect the unit to the room. This makes mini-units less likely to create air leakage in your home and decreases potential security problems that window units might cause.

Easy to customize and extend: If you’re looking to add comfort to multiple rooms, one outdoor unit can handle up to four separate indoor units. You would only need one outdoor installation for up to four spaces in your home. You can easily add timers and built-in sleep functions to make your home more energy efficient and further fine-tune your home comfort as well.
