Save on Energy Bills in Nashville with a Ductless Mini-Split System
Mini-split systems are great for Nashville homes heated by ductless systems—hot water, electric heat or radiant panels. They’re also a good alternative to heat and cool homes without capacity for ductwork, additions, garages and more.
The system—an outdoor unit and a nearly silent, wall-mounted indoor unit—is often referred to as a mini-split heat pump. Heat pump systems have been used in southern locations for decades to heat and cool homes.
However, mini-splits are more energy efficient because they are zoned systems. This means you can adjust the heating or cooling in single areas.
In contrast to conventional electric heating systems, the EPA determined ENERGY STAR®-rated models can cut your heating bills by up to 50 percent. This is due to the fact that mini-splits transfer heat instead of generating it.
A mini-split system could also lower your cooling costs by 30 percent, as opposed to conventional air conditioning. The system is able to save on energy because it uses compressors and fans to calibrate cooling speeds.
Because there are no ducts on split systems, you won’t have the energy loss involved with ducted systems like central air or heating.
