Why Switch to Ductless Heating?
Ductless heating and cooling systems use heat pump technology to distribute warm and cooled air more efficiently in your home. You most likely have already seen one of these units at your local office or perhaps in a friend’s house. Ductless heating and cooling systems are quiet and much more efficient than traditional heating and cooling units.
If you are looking for a change, ductless heating and cooling may be the way to go. You will want to consult a local licensed HVAC company first to see what your options are, since there are multiple ductless systems to choose from.
What are the Benefits of Ductless Heating and Cooling Systems?
Ductless heating and cooling is the system of choice for many homeowners these days because:
- They are extremely flexible. Traditional furnaces and central air conditioners are limited in terms of flexibility. In order to heat or cool a room, you need ductwork, and often, the ductwork must be formed to suit the unit you are installing. These systems then rely on the ductwork to deliver heated or cooled air to each room. Ductless systems can heat and cool individual rooms, but they do not require anything more than a space to mount and access to electricity.
- They offer excellent savings.One of the biggest reasons homeowners opt for ductless heating and cooling systems over traditional ones is the savings potential. Not only will you save on installation costs (since you are not paying to install or reconfigure ductwork), but you are saving on utility costs as well. With a ductless system, you pick and choose which rooms need to be heated and cooled, so you are not wasting energy. Also, they are smaller than traditional systems; therefore, they consume less energy.
- They improve your air quality.Indoor air quality with traditional systems is often poor. Over time, ductwork builds up with dust and allergens and even with professional cleaning and sanitizing, the contaminants continue to come back. With a ductless system, you get multi-stage filtration, which reduces dust, bacteria, pollen and allergens in your home’s indoor air.
- They are quick to install.Most ductless systems can be installed within one day. Traditional systems can take several weeks, especially if you need to install brand new ductwork or reconfigure your existing ductwork. Even the multi-split systems do not require you to tear into walls; instead, they only require a three-inch hole for wires and the refrigerant line.
