Ductless Mini-Splits Can Help Improve IAQ
Do you want an HVAC upgrade that raises indoor air quality (IAQ) and reduces utility bills? A ductless mini-split heat pump may fit the bill. Here are three ways that ductless mini-splits can make your Stockbridge, GA home healthier:
Advanced Multi-stage Filtration
Standard HVAC filters with low MERV ratings only trap large airborne contaminants. Smaller particles that set off allergies, cause illness, and aggravate respiratory conditions continue to flow through the system. Mini-splits have multi-stage filtration that captures smaller particles like dander, mites, microbes, and pollen. Depending on the model, ductless systems can remove up to 99.9 percent of all indoor air pollution.
No Ductwork Contaminants
Over time, ducts can collect excessive dust, pests, viruses, insect droppings, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), pet dander, bacteria and more. When treated air flows through ductwork and into your home, it brings these toxins with it. According to Energy Star, up to 30 percent of U.S. homes are plagued by ductwork leaks. These breaches jack up energy costs and give additional contaminants access to your living space. Mini-split deliver clean air straight from the outdoor condenser unit to the indoor air handlers that control temperatures in each room.
Outstanding Humidity Control
Traditional air conditioners have short running times. They deliver periodic bursts of treated air by constantly cycling on and off. Ductless mini-splits have cutting-edge inverter technology. They maintain the desired indoor temperatures with longer and slower running times and by making small adjustments in output. Toxic particles thrive in warm and moist environments. Longer running times give ductless systems plenty of time to remove indoor humidity. That, in turn, helps
control the conditions that support contaminants.
