Why Install a Mini-Split Cooling System?
One of the biggest benefits homeowners will see when they install a mini-split AC system is the cost-savings. When a home utilizes standard ductwork to heat and cool, you are at risk of losing up to 25% or more of your home’s energy, whereas with a ductless mini-split system you are SAVING energy. This is not only good for our environment but also great on the wallet.
Another perk of mini-splits is how quick and easy they are to install. In as little as one day, your new ductless AC system can be up and running. To install, a certified HVAC technician from Yellow Dot Heating and Air Conditioning only needs to drill a very small hole into the wall and voila! This also makes mini-splits systems less vulnerable to security issues and air leakage.
Last, but certainly not least, mini-split AC systems improve the home’s overall air quality with its multi-stage filtration process.

Questions You May Have About Mini-Split Systems
Are Multi-Splits Difficult to Get Used to?
Mini-split cooling systems are incredibly simple to use. They’re easily programmable and can even be manually adjusted to maximize energy savings. Compared to traditional central heating and cooling systems, mini-split cooling systems are just as easy to use and maintain.
Is a Ductless System Appropriate for my Garage or New Addition?
When building a new addition onto the home, there are two heating and cooling options: extend your ducts to reach the addition or install a ductless cooling system. The latter is much cheaper to install and provides more adjustable cooling than with central air. The same is true for certain rooms in need of better heating and cooling. Installing a mini-split system in your garage can be a much cheaper alternative to extending central air ducts.
Should I Use a Mini-Split System For My New Home?
While many homes are designed around central ventilation systems, they are not the only option for whole-home heating and cooling. Mini-split systems offer the same advantages as central heating and cooling plus a few others. Central ventilation reads one temperature for the whole house, whereas mini-split systems allow individual temperature reading and adjustments per room, producing optimal comfort for each room.
Additionally, mini-split systems include an energy-saving mode that will adjust the settings after 20 minutes of inactivity, meaning you no longer have to spend money to cool the home when nobody is there, leading to significant monthly energy savings.
The Equipment Is Inside? Will It Be Loud?
Not at all. Unlike traditional heating and cooling equipment, mini-split cooling systems are designed to be discreet. When your system is on, it will produce noise at about the same volume as a whisper. You can enjoy movies and even nap comfortably without being woken up by a loud fan.
Will It Actually Clean the Air in My Home?
Yes, it will. With a built-in photocatalytic deodorizing indoor air filter, your mini-split system will purify the air as it circulates through the filter. Using charged particles to collect particulates like hair and dander and eliminate hazardous microbes like bacteria, mold spores, and viruses, your mini-split system will produce clean, breathable air for you and your family.
