Improving your quality of life begins with improving your indoor air quality. The average person spends about 90% of their life indoors, where according to the Environmental Protection Agency, the air can be up to 10 times more polluted than the air outside. That’s especially true in the hot, humid climate of Pensacola. While indoor pollutants make our lives uncomfortable, more importantly, they can also trigger health problems or allergic reactions. If you don’t have a ductless mini-split system, you’re in luck!
Residents of Pensacola and the surrounding communities rely on Climatech for professional mini-split installations. If you do have a ductless mini-split system, you’re probably wondering how you can improve the air quality in your home. Well, you’re already off to a good start.
What is a ductless mini-split system?
Mini-split systems are used to control the temperatures of specific rooms or areas of your home to improve comfort, efficiency, and the cost of your energy bill. Like traditional central HVAC systems, mini splits have two main components: an outdoor condenser (containing the compressor) and an indoor air-handling unit. Power, refrigerant tubing, suction tubing, and a condensate drain, link the outdoor section and the indoor section of the unit.
How do they help to improve indoor air quality?
While you won’t be able to install an air purification system into ductwork when you have a ductless mini-split, there are still many ways in which your indoor air quality will be improved.
Ductless mini-splits can be mounted virtually anywhere in a room making them easily accessible. They are relatively small and easy to clean, and they have a small filter that can be easily changed following the user manual instructions. Because of easy access and simple cleaning, you can better maintain good indoor air quality.
Ductwork often collects many allergens, particulates, and bacteria over time. Because of this, when air passes through the ductwork past the filter, it brings contaminants with it into the air in your home. Mini-splits don’t have ductwork, and therefore won’t pass pollutants into your home’s air. Clean air flows straight into the indoor air handler and through the filter, allowing your family to breathe easier.
Because a ductless mini-split only requires a small, sealed hole to connect the indoor unit to the outdoor unit, contaminants, including bugs, are less likely to enter your home. This is much different than a window unit that can leave cracks or openings to the outside.
Too much humidity can leave you feeling sticky and uncomfortable. Mini-splits accurately regulate humidity to save us money, leave us more comfortable, and stop the growth of mold and bacteria. So, how do they do it? Mini-splits take in outside air and pass it over a refrigerant line to cool it down. As the air cools and moves over the coil, any moisture in the air is condensed and drained outside before passing through the indoor unit.
