In Black Hills, South Dakota, heating and cooling use a lot of energy, so the air conditioning system you choose has a big impact on your utility bills and the environment. Central air conditioning is common in the United States, but ductless or mini-split systems are becoming more and more popular. Ductless systems can have more than one indoor unit and a small conduit connects the components instead of ductwork. A ductless/mini-split system typically consists of a wall-mounted indoor unit combined with an outside compressor.
Ductless/mini-split HVAC systems are best suited for providing air conditioning for single rooms, additions and supplemental support for problem areas in larger homes. Our ductless/mini-split systems are quick and easy to install and are Energy Star rated! You can reduce your carbon footprint and improve indoor air quality. They also save you money by qualifying for energy rebates through your energy provider.
Do you or a family member suffer from allergies? Indoor pollutants, including dust, dust mites, pollen, mold, bacteria, and more, can accumulate inside the ductwork in your central heating and cooling system. Without regular cleaning and maintenance, these pollutants will eventually spread around your home through leaks in ductwork and lower your indoor air quality. Family members could experience flu-like symptoms, skin irritation, worsening asthma, or other problems. Children, elderly people, and people with respiratory or other health conditions are the most vulnerable.
These pollutants don’t accumulate in ductless systems, so the filters can catch more contaminants. Since ductless HVAC systems with variable-speed fans stay on longer, they can remove pollutants even more effectively. Longer cooling cycles also lower humidity better than central air conditioning systems. Your family will be more comfortable, and you could even lower your family’s medical bills by keeping away contaminants that produce health problems.
