Are Ductless Mini-Splits Environmentally Friendly?


Are Ductless Mini-Splits Environmentally Friendly?

There can be a lot to consider when it comes to heating and cooling your home. For many households, it comes down to affordability, and what will best meet your family’s needs.

However, another question we have beginning to ask more and more is: which system will reduce my carbon footprint? Is there a more sustainable option?

Ductless mini-split heat pumps have less environmental impact than traditional air conditioning systems. This is because they are more energy-efficient, use a non-ozone-depleting refrigerant, and require fewer materials. 


But How Is it More Sustainable?

One reason these ductless mini split pumps are a more sustainable option is because the ductless system doesn’t allow air to be lost through flaws in the ductwork. 

Also, the mini split system can split buildings into different zones. This means homeowners can control which parts of their house is being heated or cooled. Additionally it gives you the opportunity to turn off the heating or cooling in other areas, which requires less energy than heating an entire home. 

These systems use a non-ozone-depleting refrigerant. This means that heat pumps negatively impact the environment throughout its lifespan less than traditional ac window units. 


In conclusion, a mini split is the number one most sustainable option right now when it comes to heating or cooling your home. There are so many reason why Field Electric thinks you should give us a call if you’re ready to get rid of your traditional air conditioning window unit.
