Garage too Cold or Warm?
Working in a garage year-round can be ideal for residents in Alabama, even though the weather can be unpredictable with wildly fluctuating temperatures and humidity. The best way to combat extreme temperatures while working in your garage is to install a mini-split ductless technology system. Going ductless has several benefits for homeowners. Contact KS Services for installation and maintenance of your ductless system or to be further educated on additional benefits of mini-split ductless technology.
What Is Mini-Split Ductless Technology?
Mini-split ductless technology has many names, such as split systems, mini-split systems and split-ductless systems. The technology consists of an outdoor unit connected to one or more indoor units to provide heating or cooling to a desired area of a home. They are utilized most often in new additions, new construction, apartments, condominiums, garages, sunrooms and other areas lacking proper climate control.
In addition, ductless technology is often used to replace space heaters, electric baseboard heaters and window air conditioning units, which use more energy and consistently increase energy bills. Mini-split technology can even be used with homes or businesses currently using a ducted forced-air system. You can even use several indoor units to achieve the temperature in several rooms at once without wasting energy to continuously heat a home to get the perfect temperature in every room. The benefits of mini-split ductless technology include:
Traditional air conditioners and heat pumps control the climate in a home through forced heated or cooled air circulated through ducts. These ducts travel all over a home, yet with mini-split ductless technology, the ideal temperatures are delivered directly to a specific zone. Comprised of a small outdoor unit and one or more indoor units, ductless systems offer more flexibility with their mounting capabilities and access to electricity. Only installing a small indoor unit, the ductless system requires less space.
Mini-split ductless technology systems use less power to operate due to their small size and their ability to deliver temperature-controlled air directly to a room. There is no risk of restricted airflow from clogged or damaged ductwork, which allows the ductless system to operate more efficiently than a traditional forced-air system. You can focus heating and cooling in specific areas with a “zoned” system and cut down on wasted energy occurring when your forced air system tries to supply hot or cool air to unoccupied rooms.
Improved Indoor Air Quality:
Traditional HVAC systems need the air ducts cleaned regularly by a professional, although with mini-split ductless technology, there are no ducts to clean. Dust and allergens are often left behind after ductwork is cleaned, reducing your indoor air quality. Ductless systems use multi-stage filtration to reduce bacteria, pollen, allergens, dust and other particulates in the air. You will experience healthier and fresher indoor air quality with a ductless system.
Easy and Quick Installation:
Installation of a traditional heating and cooling unit can take weeks and disrupts your home life and activities. Installation of mini-split ductless technology is easy and quick compared to regular forced air systems. Ductless systems are less invasive and are usually ready to use within one day. The time it takes to install the system depends on how many indoor and outdoor units you want to be installed in your home. Small pipes ran through a three-inch hole make installation easy and require no construction for the installation.
Installing mini-split ductless technology in your garage or another area lacking ductwork increases energy savings and improves your indoor air quality. Call KS Services today and talk to one of our NATE-certified technicians about installing a new ductless system in your home.
