The Benefits of a Zoned System

Is your traditional heating and cooling system not up to par?

It might be time to consider something new. And that new system might be a zoned system from Mitsubishi. For homes not fitted with existing ductwork, it’s an ideal way to heat and cool the home.

In this week’s blog post, we’ll look at a few of the benefits of a Mitsubishi zoned system.

1. Flexible heating and cooling

A ductless system is made up of a small outdoor unit and at least one indoor unit. The indoor unit uses refrigerant in the coil to heat or cool air, quietly sending it to where you need.

While standard central air systems forces cooled or heated air through your ducts, a ductless
zoned system sends air directly into different zones of your house. Called “mini-split,” “zoned,” and “ductless” systems, this method gives homeowners a cost-effective way to replace window units or update older HVAC systems.

2. Cost savings

One of the driving factors causing homeowners to invest in systems like the Mitsubishi zoned system is the savings they can realize.

An inefficient heating and cooling system can quickly cause your monthly energy bills to spike. But a ductless system uses less energy than a forced-air HVAC system. And because the mini-split allows you to create zones around your home, you won’t need to heat or cool rooms that aren’t in use.

In addition to the savings you’ll get from lowering your energy costs, you may also be eligible for tax credits or utility rebates for installing a
zoned system.

3. Improved air quality

Traditional HVAC systems need routine, professional cleaning to remove dust and other allergens. But these particulates have been known to linger, even after cleaning. But
zoned systems like Mitsubishi feature multi-stage filtration that dramatically lowers the amount of dust, bacteria, pollen, and allergens in your home.

4. It installs quickly

Having a traditional ducted HVAC system installed in your home can take the better part of a week. But a zoned system is a lot less intrusive and can be installed within a day, depending on how many indoor and outdoor units are in play.

And while a standard ducted system will require contractors to open up your walls, a zoned system needs only a small hole for the refrigerant piping.

5. A lower carbon footprint

Zoned heating and cooling systems follow Energy Star guidelines. What does that mean? It means they’ll provide energy efficiency that’s higher than the minimum federal standard, saving you money and lowering your home’s carbon output.

In addition, zoned systems use R410A refrigerant, known for its zero-ozone depletion potential, meaning your system will have less environmental impact.

Mitsubishi zoned heating and cooling devices will lower your energy costs while also delivering simple solutions for:
