Mitsubishi Ductless Splits
Ductless split systems, also known as mini-splits, are booming in North America. Though relatively new to our area, Mitsubishi pioneered the ductless split system more than 40 years ago in Japan. Because of relatively cheap energy in the States, and higher up-front costs for ductless splits, we as Americans have been slow to adopt them as a serious alternative to conditioning our homes and businesses. However as domestic energy prices have risen over the past 5 years, these products are becoming more and more popular.
Ductless splits can be used in a variety of applications. There is no better, more efficient option for conditioning a sunroom, bonus room over the garage, or addition to your existing home than a Mitsubishi ductless split. Additionally, because they are extremely energy efficient and can provide room to room comfort, they can also be a great solution for taking care of an entire home or office building.
Use Less Energy
Ductless splits do 2 things better than a ducted system can. First, they use significantly less energy. Part of this has to do with the compressor technology, but just as important is that they have no duct work. No ductwork means no duct leakage (from cracks or holes in the ductwork), and no heat gain or loss (from ductwork sitting in a hot attic in the summer or a cold attic in the winter). Given that typical duct systems lose 25 to 40 percent of the heating or cooling energy put out by the central furnace, heat pump, or air conditioner, the energy savings of not having a duct system can be tremendous.
Every Room is Comfortable
The second major benefit from a ductless system is the room to room comfort. A ductless system utilizes multiple air handlers, in some cases a separate air handler for each room or office. What this means is that you have a different thermostat for each room. When you want your bedroom at 68 degrees, and the rest of the house at 78 degerees, no problem!
Come See a Working System
Oren Atchley Company firmly believes that ductless split systems are going to play a huge role in keeping homes and offices comfortable in the future. In fact, we are so confident in the technology we installed a Mitsubishi ductless split system it in our own offices. Want a demonstration? Come by any time, summer or winter, and feel the comfort for yourself.
