The Pros and Cons of Mini-Split Systems

Mini-split systems deliver air conditioning and heating to your home for a fraction of the cost and size of traditional HVAC. When you’re looking to replace or upgrade your current air conditioner, a mini-split is a good alternative to the hefty installation process of central ductwork.

If you’re on the fence about a mini-split, here are three pros and cons to help you decide if it’s the right choice for you. You can always contact us for more information about mini-split systems Oshawa.

Pros

  1. No ductwork required. Installing ducts is expensive and time-consuming. A ductless mini-split system is compact and easily able to be installed in an individual room without any hassle.  You only need about 1 inch through the wall to connect from the indoors to outside.
  2. Individual temperature control. Units in different rooms each have their own thermostats; this means you and your family can set your ideal temperature in the living room and bedrooms for maximum comfort.
  3. No window units. Ductless mini-split air conditioners are mounted on the wall, but they can also be hung from the ceiling. This means no clunky window units obscuring your view and putting you at a greater risk of home intruders.

Cons

  1. More expensive than central HVAC. Although they are easier to install and take up less space, mini-splits can cost up to 30% more than traditional HVAC units. The size of your home and general usage will impact how much you pay, but generally speaking, costs range between $1,2000 to $5,000 for multiple units.
  2. Calculations are critical. A mini-split won’t work if it’s load is not calculated properly. This is why choosing a reliable professional is essential to getting your money’s worth.
  3. Potential for leaks. If they aren’t installed correctly, mini-splits can suffer from energy leaks that gobble up your money and don’t provide adequate heating or cooling.

While there are some cons to ductless mini-splits, they are easily offset by a trustworthy team of licensed professionals. That’s us! Please contact Climate Experts today to learn more about mini-split systems Oshawa installation and costs.

Cody is very professional and knowledgeable. He responded quickly to my enquiry. He worked with us to ensure we could set up the ductwork and venting in a way that maximized the basement.

The rep was very professional, he explained in detail what he did and what to look out for in the future. He was very knowledgeable and I would recommend Climate Experts to others in the future and would use them again for all my future HVAC needs.

Climate experts came in for HVAC/boiler maintenance when we moved into our new house. They ended up finding a problem that went undiagnosed by our home inspection that could have been very dangerous. They then ended up installing a new boiler for us super quickly. It was obviously a sudden expense but Climate experts made the whole thing feel a lot better due to their professional and concern for our safety. The new boiler not only works, but is...dare I say...beautiful! The copper piping work that they did is a sight to behold. Who knew that we would be so excited to show our family/friends our cool new boiler. We absolutely recommend these folks—they are reliable, professional, and make even the typically boring part of the house feel nice and pretty. You are in good hands with them!
