Are you spending more time at home lately, perhaps working from home?
That means you need your home to be as comfortable as possible. With the coming summer forecast here in Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts to be hotter than normal, making sure you can keep your home cool so you can focus on your work or relaxing is essential.
If you don’t have central air conditioning in your home, you’re not alone. Sometimes, it’s because the home is heated with a boiler and thus there’s no ductwork for central air conditioning. Installing ductwork can add thousands of dollars to the cost of adding central air conditioning, which costs on average about $5,600.
For a long time, those without central A/C thought their only option for cooling was window A/C units. But before you get out your window units and get on the ladder to install them, there is an alternative that can save you that work, and some money on energy costs: ductless mini-split air conditioners!
Wesco Oil’s trained and experienced service technicians can safely install ductless mini-splits in your home so you can enjoy cool comfort all summer long.
The big one is long-term savings. While ductless mini-splits cost more up-front between equipment and installation, you get that back in the long run.
Energy efficiency is the first way. Ductless mini-splits can use about 40% less energy than a window A/C unit. So you’ll save on energy costs right out of the gate.
Not only that, mini-splits are powerful enough to cool multiple rooms and larger spaces, while most window units can’t and would use even more energy to try and do so.
With mini-splits, you can zone your cooling and use a smart thermostat to do so, controlling your home’s cooling from your smart phone! No more coming home to a sweltering house and having to crank the window units up to high to make things cooler. That’s another way mini-splits are more efficient.
