5 Advantages of a Ductless Heating and Cooling System
You have probably heard of ductless heating and cooling systems. You may even have seen them in then in the form of small indoor devices often found in newer homes, restaurants or office buildings. But how much do you know about ductless systems?
If you’ve been thinking about installing a ductless heating and cooling system, here are some of the benefits for you to consider:
Ductless Systems Offer Flexible Solutions
Traditional heating and central air systems are comprised of outdoor units and several indoor units that use ducts to distribute cold or hot air through a home. On the other hand, ductless systems deliver cooled or heated air directly into the rooms in your home. Ductless heating and cooling systems allow for greater temperature control in specific areas.
Ductless Heating and Cooling Systems Lower Your Carbon Footprint
Ductless HVAC systems are built in accordance with Energy Star guidelines which mean they provide greater energy efficiency than traditional heating and cooling systems. With an HVAC system that runs more efficiently, you can easily lessen your carbon footprint.
Ductless HVAC Systems Save Your Money
Since ductless heating and cooling systems are more efficient than traditional HVAC systems, they offer a cost-effective alternative to window air conditioning units, space heaters and electric baseboard heaters. Since energy costs have risen steeply in recent years, if you are dependent on an inefficient HVAC system to heat or cool your home, you will have to pay more monthly for your energy bills.
If you want to save some money on your energy bill each month, consider switching to a ductless heating and cooling system.
Ductless Systems Improve Air Quality
Traditional HVAC systems require professional duct cleaning on a regular basis. If air ducts are not cleaned regularly, dust, bacteria, pollen and other allergens can accumulate in the air ducts and be recirculated through your home. Dirty air ducts could lead to the air quality inside your home being significantly lower than the air quality outside. With ductless HVAC systems, there is a multi-stage filtration which helps to reduce the pollutants that are distributed through your home.
Ductless Systems are Quick and Easy to Install
It can take an HVAC contractor several weeks to install a traditional ducted system while most ductless systems can be installed in as little as a day. Ductless heating and cooling systems are also less invasive and do not require rebuilding walls or ceilings to accommodate ductwork.
