Save on Energy Bills in Toronto with a Ductless Mini-Split System
Mini-split systems are great for Toronto homes heated by ductless systems—hot water, electric heat or radiant panels. They’re also a good way to heat and cool homes without space for ductwork, additions, garages and more.
The system—an outdoor unit and a quiet, wall-mounted indoor unit—is regularly known as a mini-split heat pump. Heat pump systems have been used in southern climates for decades to condition homes.
However, mini-splits are more energy efficient because they are zoned systems. This means you can set the heating or cooling in one area.
In contrast to conventional electric heating systems, the EPA determined ENERGY STAR®-rated models can decrease your heating bills by up to 50 percent. This is due to the fact that mini-splits transfer heat instead of creating it.
A mini-split system could also reduce your cooling expenses 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 associated with ducted systems like central air or heating.
