You’ve spent a fortune renovating your Brooklyn Brownstone. The flooring is new, the walls are painted and the kitchen is modernized.
But, if you’re still suffering through hot summers or cold winters because you cannot run ductwork, your renovations aren’t complete.
It was probably disappointing to hear that you’d have to gut your home to add in ductwork. You may have also heard that it was not possible to add ducts without ruining the aesthetic of your Brownstone. But, there is an answer: mini-splits.
And there are advantages to adding a mini-split system in your home.
For one, it’s far more efficient than what you’re most likely using now: window units.
While a mini-split costs more upfront than a window unit, you’ll save money in the long run. Compared with some of the top-of-the-line window units, mini-splits consume about 40% less energy than their windowed counterparts.
Another advantage that mini-splits have over window units is their appearance and ability to be hung in a variety of locations.
Window units block your windows from being used for what they were intended – to see outside. And, because half of the unit hangs outside, they are often targets for dirt and debris.
Mini-splits not only stay in the house, they can also be placed in aesthetically-pleasing locations throughout your home. They are also far less noisy than window units.
Mini-splits also work independently or in concert with other units to provide whole-home climate control.
Whether you want to cool one room, create a zone of controlled air in a portion of the house or cool the entire home, mini-splits work together to create the level of comfort you want. And, because the location of your mini-split is flexible, you can create an airflow that is designed specifically for the comfort of your family.
