3 Common Myths About Ductless Mini-Splits, Mount Vernon, Ohio

As ductless mini-split systems become increasingly more popular, the misconceptions surrounding them spread. While some of the most common myths contain a kernel of truth, many have deviated so far from reality that they only serve to mislead homeowners and business owners. If you’re in the market for a new HVAC system, don’t fall for these falsities.

What You Shouldn’t Believe About Ductless Mini-Splits

1. They Can Be Installed Anywhere

While it’s true that a ductless mini-split’s configuration isn’t limited by a property’s existing ductwork, its units can’t simply be installed anywhere. To ensure optimal efficiency and total heating and cooling capacity, your HVAC contractor will help you identify each zone and, subsequently, the ideal location for its corresponding air-handling unit.

2. They Only Provide Supplemental Heating & Cooling

ductless mini-splitsIf you add an extra bedroom and bathroom to your home at some point, it will be much easier to install a ductless mini-split than to modify the property’s existing ductwork. Because ductless systems are so often used in additions, people tend to assume they don’t have the capacity to heat or cool an entire home. In reality, a ductless mini-split can handle all the demands that a traditional system can, as long as it’s designed, outfitted, and installed properly.

3. They Cannot Filter Out Contaminants

Every air-handling unit within a ductless system is equipped with a filter. These filters trap dust, dirt, mold, pollen, and other contaminants. With regular filter maintenance, ductless systems can significantly improve your indoor air quality.
