One of the challenges with using a traditional HVAC system is energy loss due to duct leaks. According to Fujitsu, duct losses account for no less than 30% of energy consumption for air conditioning. So, how do you solve this issue? One of the easiest ways would be to upgrade to ductless mini splits. Here are a few reasons why you should make the switch.

1. Improved Comfort

A ductless mini split HVAC system comes with smaller units that are placed in different rooms throughout the home. There are no ducts required for this system. Air delivery is targeted, and this means there’s better temperature control for each room. If you tend to have cold or hot spots in your home, a ductless mini split can help to solve this issue. You can simply adjust the thermostat of a specific unit and get the desired condition in each area of your home. By doing so, you won’t end up wasting a lot of energy trying to cool the entire house, including unoccupied areas. This is quite effective when you’re dealing with large homes that are difficult to heat and cool effectively.

2. Greater Efficiency

Efficiency is where ductless mini-split systems shine. They are way more energy-efficient than traditional HVAC systems. This is largely because they don’t have ducts. This means the system will not suffer excessive energy loss due to leaky ductwork. Oftentimes, you may see a higher energy bill thanks to small duct leaks. But, with a mini-split, there is no need to worry about this waste. It’s also possible to connect the outdoor unit to several indoor units to deliver different temperatures to different rooms as required.

3. Lower Monthly Bills

Greater efficiency means less energy is being used for air conditioning. This means your home will not only be more comfortable but your energy costs will also be more affordable. Ductless mini splits offer targeted air conditioning and there is no ductwork, which means energy will not be lost unnecessarily. This also means that the system will not need to work overtime and consume lots of energy to cool your home to the desired temperature.


These are some of the reasons why ductless mini splits are growing more and more popular with homeowners. Are you interested in upgrading the AC in your home to a ductless mini split? Get in touch with Martel Plumbing and Heating today to get started.
