Lennox MLA Mini-Split Heat Pump

Posted: 2018-01-08

Many homeowners still have central air and suffer from inconsistent cooling and heating throughout their homes, which significantly compromise their comfort. A single thermostat isn’t enough to effectively control the temperature of the entire house.

Another problem involving central air is the need for periodic cleaning of ducts and registers. This needs to be done because ducts accumulate dirt, debris, pollen, dead insects or animals, and allergens that trigger people’s allergies. Poor air quality caused by dirty ducts also contribute to other health problems such as respiratory diseases.

This is why ductless systems are becoming the choice of more and more homeowners.

In partnership with Lennox Industries, Four Seasons Air Specialists provides energy-efficient ductless systems to help you achieve constant heating and cooling for your home. We are a trusted HVAC company in Hugo, MN that delivers premium heating and cooling solutions designed to maximize your home comfort.

This article talks about the advantages of ductless systems and also highlights the Lennox MLA Mini-Split Heat Pump that has outstanding cold-climate capabilities, which operates in temperatures as low as -22°F.

What is a Ductless System?

A ductless system hooks up an outdoor unit with an indoor unit to heat or cool a specific zone of the home without utilizing ductwork.

Ductless systems were developed in Japan in the 1970s and have since become a preferred heating and cooling solution throughout Asia and much of Europe. In the United States, ductless systems have been used in commercial applications for over 20 years.

In a ductless system, individual spaces are heated or cooled by location-specific units. Each unit functions according to its own settings, having a thermostat for every unit. Temperature modifications can be made to meet the needs in a given space without creating unrestrained or inadequate heating or cooling in another area.

Ductless Systems Benefits

Ductless systems are also called split systems, multi-split systems or split-ductless systems. They can be installed in new construction, home additions, apartments, condominiums or if you simply want to have more control on the temperature in specific rooms. Ductless systems are far less intrusive to install, and depending on the number of indoor and outdoor units needed, can be operational in as little as one day.

Since mini-splits do not need ducts to move air, you will get rid of energy losses related to central forced air systems that utilize ductwork. This helps you save money on energy and do your part in helping the environment in the process.

Ductless systems use a refrigerant called R410A, which is known for its zero ozone exhaustion potential. A home with a ductless system installed has less impact on the environment throughout its life cycle.

Furthermore, certain ductless air conditioners and heat pumps are ENERGY STAR® rated which may qualify for federal and state tax incentives as well as local utility rebates.
