Why Your Basement Needs a Mini Split

Does your home have a finished basement without air conditioning? If so, you’ll have to avoid the basement in order to stay cool this spring and summer. Fortunately, there’s a solution. Here are Boer Brothers’ top 3 reasons to get a ductless mini split for your finished basement.

Mini split: Easy to install

Mini splits are essentially small, ductless heat pumps that are particularly useful in older buildings or homes with finished attics and basements. Why is this? Well, central HVAC systems require an extensive network of ducts in order to circulate air. So, if you want to retrofit your basement with traditional A/C, you’ll be looking at a major renovation project. On the other hand, mini splits use no ductwork and only require an electrical connection. Mini split installation is simple, quick, and cost-effective.

Reduce spring allergies

The lack of ductwork has added benefits other than easy installation. Large ductwork systems collect dust, dirt and debris over time as they circulate air. In addition, the ducts can be a haven for mold and mildew growth. These particles are the reason that the air in your home can actually be more polluted than outdoor air. With a ductless mini split, you can breathe easy as there are no ducts to collect dust and other allergens. Less allergies makes for a more comfortable in-home experience this spring.

Energy savings with a mini split from Boer Brothers

Ductless heat pumps are ideal for using HVAC zoning in your home. With a zoned HVAC system, you can independently control the temperature and humidity levels of different areas of your home. Typically, this would require a programmable thermostat. However, a mini split can turn your finished basement into its own zone! This makes your air conditioning more efficient, lowering energy bills this season.
