Lennox MPA Mini-Split Heat Pump

Posted: 2018-01-16

Ducts are a great way to deliver conditioned air throughout your home. However, they are also sensitive to developing leaks and cracks that let out heated or cooled air. This is why many homeowners have a steady increase in their utility bills.

According to ENERGY STAR, there are signs that tell if an HVAC system has inefficient ducts. These traces include:

  • High summer and winter utility costs
  • Rooms that are difficult to heat and cool
  • Humid rooms that never seem to feel comfortable
  • Ducts that are located in an attic, crawlspace, or the garage
  • Tangled or kinked flexible ducts in your system

A ductless system may be the right solution if you are experiencing any of these problems or if you have an area in your house where ductwork is not an option.

This article talks about the advantages of ductless systems and also highlights the Lennox MPA Mini-Split Heat Pump that delivers efficient heating and cooling ideal for add-on spaces.

What is a Ductless System?

Ductless systems were started in Japan over 40 years ago. They are highly efficient heating and cooling systems that enable homeowners to divide their houses into zones, which results in greater control of the temperatures in individual rooms. These systems have completely transformed the way people heat and cool their homes.

In contrast to central air, ductless systems do not need ducts to move air. This is one of the reasons why they are the most comfortable, quietest, and energy-efficient way to condition the air in your home.

Why Should You Go Ductless?

Because of their smaller size, ductless systems make HVAC zoning achievable. This allows specific rooms to have personalized heating and cooling settings, depending on the occupants’ preferences. This is made possible by having an independent thermostat for each room, making it more energy-efficient and highly economical. Compared to centralized HVAC systems, mini-splits absorb 25 to 50 percent less energy.

When it comes to ease of installation, mini-splits are easier to set up compared to ducted systems. While it typically takes days to complete the installation of a conventional arrangement, a ductless system can be functional in less than a day.

Since mini-splits do not need ducts to move air, you will get rid of energy losses associated with central forced air systems utilizing ductwork. This helps you save money on energy and help the environment at the same time.

A ductless system usually operates with a remote control to make it easier to manage.

Another factor to consider is that 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.
