A New Year’s Resolution for Improved Heating and Cooling


If you experienced issues this year with heating and cooling your home the way you desire, it’s time for a system upgrade in 2024. We like to recommend ductless mini splits in Broomfield. These unique systems boast a lot of benefits that homeowners in our area really enjoy.

You can keep reading to learn more about the benefits of installing a ductless mini split as an all-in-one solution for both heating and cooling. Then give our team a call to schedule service so that we can show you how a ductless mini would work for your home and family.

Why Purchase a Ductless Mini Split?

A ductless mini split is a great choice because it can replace both your heater and air conditioner. A mini split is essentially a very small heat pump system. Instead of working as a central unit, a ductless mini-split utilizes smaller individual units that are strategically placed around your home.

These units can work together to provide whole-house cooling, or you can select individualized temperatures for different rooms in your home based on individual preferences. Since they replace both your heater and air conditioner and don’t require a central indoor unit of any kind, ductless mini splits can save you a lot of storage space in closets, your garage, and even your attic or basement.

Benefits of a Ductless Mini Split

From the ability to customize temperatures, ductless mini splits also boast the potential to cut your monthly energy costs by as much as 50%. Many homeowners are turned off by the fact that a ductless mini split costs more upfront to install compared to a more traditional central unit.

However, when you take the potential for energy savings into account, a mini split easily costs less over its lifetime compared to the other heating and cooling options. Spending a little more upfront to slash energy costs and a half for the next 10 to 15 years can really make a difference.

Installation Considerations

If you don’t already have an existing ductless mini split, the installation can be involved. Even though there is no central indoor unit, there is still a central outdoor unit that all of the smaller heat pumps have to connect to. Our team will have to install the small units in the individual rooms of your home, usually along the ceiling. Then, we will have to run all the lines to the outdoor unit.

Some homeowners are concerned with the visual of having a ductless mini split unit installed along the ceiling, but it’s really no different than having vents placed around the home. If anything, there is less impact to the overall aesthetic of a home since you don’t have to arrange furniture around multiple vents in each room.

Care Considerations

Of course, it is important to consider that the homeowner maintenance expectations for a ductless mini split unit are slightly higher compared to a more traditional central unit. We are completing the same monthly homeowner maintenance tasks, like flushing the condensate drain lines and changing out the air filter.

Instead of doing these tasks for a single unit, you’re doing them for individual units placed all around your home. Instead of replacing or cleaning out a single filter, you are handling several each month. And since the air filters on the deck with mini splits are much smaller, it is increasingly important to clean them out monthly, if not a little more frequently.
