We all know how swelteringly hot the summers in northern New Jersey can get. No one likes to feel sweaty and tired in their own home, but if you’re relying on window air conditioners to beat the heat, you might find yourself in that scenario.

In Elizabeth, Parsippany Hills, Mt. Olive and other communities in our service region, Dixon Energy helps many households without ductwork find long-term, energy-efficient cooling systems. If you think your only options are ineffective window units or expensive duct installation, we have a much better solution.

Ductless mini-splits are revolutionizing how New Jersey families cool their homes. They’re energy efficient and dependable, and we can set you up with ductless A/C with minimal disruption to your life.

What are ductless mini-splits?

Mini-split systems cool your home by transferring heat. They do this without ducts using two primary components: an indoor air handling unit and an outdoor compressor. In the summer, the indoor unit draws in warm air from your home and expels the heat outside. Then, cooled air is returned to your room. Multiple air handlers can connect to one compressor.

How efficient are ductless mini-splits?

When you have a ductless mini-split system installed by a professional HVAC team like the folks at Dixon Energy, you can enjoy some fantastic energy savings. Here are the reasons why:

  1. Zoned cooling. Unlike central air conditioning, mini-splits have individual indoor units that run independently. So, you can lower the cooling in unoccupied rooms and save money on energy costs.
  2. No duct losses. The U.S. Department of Energy says that duct losses can account for over 30 percent of energy consumption for central A/C . Mini-splits have no duct losses, leading to much less lost energy.
  3. Longer service life. If you properly maintain your mini-split system, it can significantly outlast central A/C equipment — often lasting more than 20 years!

Is mini-split installation easy?

Yes — we can frequently install a mini-split system in less than a day. The process involves simple drilling to mount equipment and run lines. Compare this to the far-more-disruptive process of installing a complete system of ducts, and you’ll see it’s a no-brainer.

And the Fujitsu ductless mini-splits we sell and install are a fantastic improvement over loud, light-blocking window units. They run quietly and are sleekly designed. Our HVAC technicians will work with you to choose discreet mounting locations to maximize the cooling area while keeping the equipment out of sight.
