When it Makes Sense to Supplement Central Air with Ductless Mini-Splits

Central air conditioning is one of the greatest inventions of all time. Just imagine living in Phoenix without it? That said, central air does have certain limitations. There’s always that one room that never quite cools off. Extending ductwork to a new addition is expensive. And some couples can never agree on a set temperature.

These are the situations where it makes sense to supplement your central air with ductless mini-splits. Ductless mini-splits provide powerful cooling comfort and operate for the fraction of the cost of central air. They integrate easily into the home -- no substantial retrofitting required.

If you’re more or less content with your current central air system, but would like to add additional temperature control to certain parts of your home, a ductless mini-split is a viable option.

Consider how a ductless mini-split can improve your comfort in the following scenarios:

You Want Your Own Comfort Zone

You like it at 70°. Your partner prefers 76°. The two of you bicker constantly over the thermostat. Ductless mini-splits provide room-by-room zoning comfort. These units operate independently of the central air system, so you can have customized temperature in one part of the home without impacting your partner’s comfort.

You’re Building an Addition

Certainly, extending the ductwork to your addition is an option, however, your existing central air system was specified to serve a home of a certain size. Increasing the square footage could compromise the performance of your HVAC system. The better and more cost-effective option is a ductless mini-split. It doesn’t require a connection to your ductwork, making it a snap to install.

The Second Floor is Unbearably Hot

Hot air rises. This is what makes the second floor of your Phoenix home warmer than you’d like even with the AC on full blast. One shortcoming of a central HVAC system is that it delivers the same volume of air to every part of your home. A ductless unit solves that problem by delivering a blast of cool, concentrated air directly where it’s needed.

Bottom line: Ductless mini-splits can complement your existing central air system in many ways to improveyour comfort. You’ll still need a pro to configure and install the units. We’re happy to help! To schedule an appointment, call 602-428-9007.
