Save on Energy Bills in Waukegan with a Ductless Mini-Split System
Mini-split systems work well for Waukegan homes heated by ductless systems—hot water, electric heat or radiant panels. They’re also a good way to heat and cool homes without space for ductwork, additions, garages and more.
The system—an outdoor unit and a nearly silent, wall-mounted indoor unit—is often known as a mini-split heat pump. Heat pump systems have been used in southern climates for decades to add comfort to homes.
However, mini-splits are more energy efficient because they are zoned systems. This means you can set the heating or cooling in individual areas.
In contrast to regular electric heating systems, the EPA determined ENERGY STAR®-rated models can cut your heating expenses by up to 50 percent. This is due to the fact that mini-splits transfer heat instead of generating it.
A mini-split system could also lower 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 adjust 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.
