Adding Heating and Cooling With Ductless Mini Splits

If there are parts of your home that never seem to be the right temperature, it can be really frustrating. If you turn up the thermostat to make one room comfy, the rest of the house can feel like a sauna; if you turn the thermostat down to make the problem room- in this case, the Great room cool, the rest of the house is an icebox!

When the homeowners gave us a call, our experts here at Blue Ridge Heating & Air knew that what they really needed to get the comfort they craved was a separate zone of heating and air conditioning. This would make this room comfortable, while not having to replace their entire HVAC system. We knew right away that a single zone of Mitsubishi ductless heating and air conditioning would do the job perfectly.

Ductless Mini Splits To The Rescue!

When you are considering how to heat and cool a space like a great room, there are lots of options to consider.  You could add electric baseboard heating, but this tends to be expensive to run and doesn’t evenly distribute heat throughout the room. You could add fans or window air conditioners for cooling, but these tend to be noisy and inefficient, so they are expensive to run and need a lot of maintenance- put them in every year, then storing them over the winter.  In contrast, a single Mitsubishi ductless unit can provide both heating and cooling for your space, giving you year-round comfort!

Mitsubishi ductless systems are high-efficiency heat pumps that can both heat and cool your home from the same unit. They are often called “mini-splits” because they have two main parts- an outdoor heat pump condensing unit and an indoor air distribution unit, that usually sits up on the wall, out of the way. The two parts are connected by thin lines filled with a special refrigerant that can transfer heat from outdoors to indoors, heating your home, or removing heat from your home and sending the heat out, leaving your home cooler!

The indoor unit is typically mounted up on a wall, where the state of the art sensors measure both the heat and humidity in the room. The system is easily controlled by a handheld remote, or you can even use an app on your smartphone! (You can also choose a wall mounted thermostat, as an option.)

When the room feels chilly, all you have to do is adjust the temperature on the remote, and the system will deliver the heat and distribute evenly throughout the room, eliminating any cold spots. When it reaches temperature, it will then turn on as needed to maintain a consistent temperature throughout the space, using just the energy needed.

The same is true for air conditioning as well. All you need to do is set your comfort level, and the system will distribute cool air throughout the room. You can even add an optional IQ sensor that will sense where people are in the room and focus comfort on them, and also go into standby mode when there is no one in the room, helping you to save money every month on your energy bills!

Quiet Comfort Meets Efficiency

For rooms like a great room where families gather, having a quiet system is important. Mitsubishi ductless systems are whisper-quiet- only 32 db, meaning the only things you’ll even notice is your comfort, not the system turning on or off.

These systems are also super efficient- up to 70% more efficient in heating and up to 30% more efficient in cooling than standard heating and cooling systems. This means you’ll be spending less money each month on energy bills while enjoying more comfort throughout your home.

Efficiency Leads To Savings

Best of all, the high-efficiency of these systems means they qualify for rebates from Duke Energy and tax credits through the Inflation Reduction Act. Qualifying new systems can receive tax credits up to $2,000, helping to make this solution even more affordable for homeowners in our area.

Smaller Energy Bills for the Win!

The real benefit for a Mitsubishi ductless system is that the great room will be comfortable at last- and the family will be saving money every month on their energy bill as well. That’s something every family can appreciate.
