Go ductless this summer
During especially hot weather, your summer utility bills in the Roanoke area can equal those of winter.
But we can help you avoid those summer shockers. Our crew of experts at Southern Trust Services can not only maintain your existing HVAC system to ensure peak efficiency, we can take you in a totally different direction and install a ductless air conditioner. They work as miniature heat pumps, too, but since we are in the middle of sizzling summer, we’ll just focus on the air-conditioning benefits they provide.
These energy-saving beauties allow you to concentrate your cooling power in one specific room or area of your home, so there’s no wasted cooling effort that drastically degrades the efficiency of your air-conditioning system.
Here are a few reasons to contact us today for more inform ation about your home’s potential for a ductless (also known as mini-split system) air conditioner:
- Ducts equal leakage. Your home’s duct system can drag efficiency down by about 25 percent through leakage and wasted chilled air. Some ductless models can reduce energy consumption by 30 percent.
- Ductless air conditioners are typically used where a window unit would be located. They are much less aesthetically intrusive, and operate much more quietly than a traditional window air-conditioner. In fact, some might find their sleek, modern design rather attractive.
- Mini split-systems allow you to customize temperatures in specific parts of your house. If you dwell in a home with many unused rooms, there’s a natural tendency to close vents in those rooms. This can impact the efficiency of your traditional HVAC system.
- If you live in an older home that doesn’t include ductwork, the ductless air-conditioner is the way to roll, especially from a cost perspective. It’s a lot cheaper than installing or upgrading ductwork.
Contact our experts at Southern Trust today to determine whether a ductless system is right for you, or for any other air-conditioning needs air-conditioning needs. We’ll help you keep your cool this summer.
