Whether you have a room or house without ductwork or want to retrofit an existing establishment to be more energy efficient 217 Heating and Cooling in Champaign, Illinois is here to help.  Ductless Mini Split Systems have become more popular for a number of reasons.  They have been a long used choice of heating and cooling in many European countries as they are a compact and convenient way to keep a home comfortable.

Reasons to consider going with ductless mini splits

Indoor high wall heat pump

This unit is not only efficient but very quiet as well. It’s a great for small space heating and cooling.

Mini-split systems can heat or cool a single room to the perfect temperature and can give up to five rooms the comfort desired.   While using less energy!  They can run quietly and can be controlled with a remote control.

These ductless heat pumps also take up less indoor space than a furnace and depending on conditions can even result in less heat loss depending on the structure and ductwork of the home.

One more reason why people generally love these systems is that without all that duct work to worry about there is less chance of pests entering through loose or broken duct work.  It also means less allergen build up so you won’t have to get a duct cleaning!

These heating/cooling systems are also great for homes that rely on radiant heat, hydronic/hot water heat and space heaters.

Ductless mini splits have also become a very popular alternative for traditional heating and cooling for small apartments for the reasons above.

Advantages of a Ductless Mini-Split:

Cost Effective: Energy effiecient and less chance of heat loss from ducts.

No Ductwork:  This alone can on average result in 20-30% of heating/cooling energy loss.

Safer:  Window mounted air conditioners are less secure and can be an access point for home break-ins; whereas ductless mini splits don’t have this issue.

Flexibility:  Wall, ceiling or floor types available.  Option to heat or cool areas or rooms that you use regularly or during certain seasons.
