Many Lubbock, Texas, homes have hot and cold spots, and they can be a real problem. When you set the thermostat to keep the family room cool and comfortable in summer, the upstairs kids’ bedrooms are too hot. If you crank up the AC to keep the kids’ rooms cool, the family room becomes a walk-in freezer. Family disagreements can break out over who controls the thermostat, who’s comfortable and who’s not. These annoying spots can develop for several reasons:
- Improperly sized HVAC
- Ductwork leaks
- Room additions that increase your home’s square footage
- Insufficient insulation
Hot and cold spots reasons are difficult to diagnose and sometimes expensive to overcome. Fortunately, there’s a simple and effective solution.
Ductless Mini-Splits Banish Hot and Cold Spots
Zoning gets rid of hot and cold spots, and ductless mini-splits are zoned systems. Mini-splits have an outdoor unit connected to one or more indoor units. Each indoor unit controls a separate zone and has its own thermostat, so you can maintain different temperatures in different rooms. Mini-split installation offers numerous benefits:
- No loss of treated air through ductwork cracks and leaks
- Heat and cool only the rooms you use
- Virtually silent operation
- Cleaner indoor air and improved humidity control
- Quick and easy installation
- Energy Star-certified systems may qualify for up to $1,000 in utility company rebates
Versatile Heating and Cooling Applications
Ductless split systems can be used to heat and cool a whole house or room additions, garage apartments and basement remodels without ductwork. They can be used for backup heating and cooling in rooms that get insufficient treated air, and they’re perfect for older homes without ductwork.
