Are you having trouble keeping your Pittsburgh home cool this summer? Calfo can help increase your comfort and decrease your energy costs with ductless mini splits! With efficient operation and a simple installation process handled by our expertly trained team—your home will stay cool and comfortable this summer, and for many more years to come.
Mini splits are a type of air-source heat pump with both heating and cooling capabilities that does not require connecting to your home’s central ductwork. Working similarly to a traditional air conditioner, an all-electric mini split system moves heat either in or out of your home depending on where it’s needed via a line of refrigerant.
A ductless mini split system consists of an outdoor compressor that circulates the refrigerant and releases or captures heat. Indoor units—or air handlers—are placed in different rooms to distribute conditioned air throughout your home. Each “zone” can be set to a different temperature, offering flexibility and customization for different spaces. Mini splits are commonly used for supplemental heating and cooling in hard to condition areas of a home, but can also be used to replace both a furnace and air conditioner.
There are several reasons why to choose a ductless mini split system in your home, such as:
Heat pumps move heat rather than using extra energy to create it, and their operation can be reversed in the winter to provide efficient heating as well—even in below freezing temperatures!
The team at Calfo can install a mini split system with minimal disturbance to your home with the average timeline of 1-5 days depending on the location, size, and difficulty of the installation.
Since a heat pump doesn’t have to generate the hot or cold air that it blows into your home, it will use significantly less energy compared to both air conditioners and furnaces, saving you on your heating and cooling costs. Most homes with a central duct system lose 20-30% of their energy through leaks and gaps, also making mini splits more efficient than ducted heat pumps.
Since mini splits have units for individual zones, it’s easy for everyone in your household to be comfortable and avoid unnecessary energy costs on conditioning the air in unused rooms.
