Save on Energy Bills in Denver with a Ductless Mini-Split System
Mini-split systems are ideal for Denver homes heated by ductless systems—hot water, electric heat or radiant panels. They’re also a good approach to heat and cool homes without room for ductwork, additions, garages and more.
The system—an outdoor unit and a nearly silent, wall-mounted indoor unit—is often called a mini-split heat pump. Heat pump systems have been used in southern locations for decades to condition homes.
However, mini-splits are more energy efficient because they are zoned systems. This means you can adjust the heating or cooling in single areas.
In comparison with regular electric heating systems, the EPA determined ENERGY STAR®-rated models can decrease your heating costs 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 decrease your cooling costs by 30 percent, in contrast to traditional air conditioning. The system is able to conserve 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 accompanied with ducted systems like central air or heating.
