Maintenance For Ductless Mini Splits: Your Technician Requires Special Training

Maintenance For Ductless Mini Splits: Your Technician Requires Special Training

By in

If you’ve ever owned a Swiss Army Knife you know how invaluable it can be. Let Climate Control Company introduce you to the Swiss Army Knife of heating and cooling — the ductless mini split heat pump.

If you’ve made the switch, you know how flexible and convenient ductless mini splits (also called ventless air conditioners) can be. They work the same as larger heat pump systems, but with no ductwork system to send heated or cooled air into your home.

Conditioned air is distributed by as many as four smaller air handling units connected to a single outdoor condenser. The handlers can be placed almost anywhere you want them inside your house.

Here are just a few reasons you should consider using mini splits:

  • Lower Upfront Costs:
    No money spent on ductwork & easy installation
  • Efficient & Cost Effective:
    The conditioned air is delivered directly to specific rooms with no loss from leaky or restricted ducts
  • Zoning:
    Each air handler is controlled by its own thermostat to increase comfort
  • Indoor Air Quality:
    No dust or allergens being spread around your home from dirty ducts

MIni splits are a great way to add value to seasonal or rental properties on the Western Slope. Many mountain homes and condos can be comfortable without central air conditioning. But adding a mini split to the bedrooms can increase comfort and increase the price you can charge for your property.

Climate Control features mini splits from 2 of the leading companies, Lennox and Mitsubishi. You can count on getting the best deal as Climate Control is a Lennox Preferred Dealer and a Mitsubishi Electric Diamond Contractor.
