We met with our HVAC provider today and ordered an exciting new HVAC system for my residence. I am converting over to the mini split system. That means I won’t have air ducts in my attic anymore. Instead, I’ll have HVAC units in lots of of the rooms in the house. I won’t have an air handler anymore, so I’ll have the capacity to adjust the heating and air conditioning independently in different patches of my house. I think it’s going to make my utility bill lower since I’ll have more control over the temperature in each room of my house. Another advantage of the mini split system is that I won’t have ductwork in the attic anymore. That should improve the air quality in my home since I won’t have dust being blown about with my ductwork anymore. I used to need to have an HVAC contractor out to my house yearly or so to clean my ductwork. Now I won’t do that anymore. It will be a lot more expensive to have my mini split HVAC system installed since I need to get refrigerant lines run throughout my house, but I think I will save in the long run as my utility bill will be much lower. I don’t know if I’ll prefer having refrigerant lines running in the walls of my house or outside the house, but I guess it is a small sacrifice if it will make my home more comfortable and save me some money on my electric bill. I think the mini split system is going to be quieter than my old HVAC system since I have won’t have an air handler now. I guess I’ll have to pay more on air filters, though, since each HVAC unit will present it’s own filter.
