Ductless heating and cooling systems are becoming more and more popular. You’ve most likely come across them installed high on office walls, restaurants or homes. But how much information do you really know about them? Below we’ll break down the main advantages to installing a ductless system in your own home.
High Flexibility Solutions: Traditional heat pumps and central air systems force cooled and heated air through air ducts, however, ductless systems deliver air directly into different zones. They are comprised of a small outdoor unit and one or more small indoor units that require nothing but electricity and mounting capabilities.
Often referred to as split systems, mini-split systems, or ductless systems, ductless cooling and heating offers homes and businesses a cost-effective way to replace inefficient window units, space heaters and electric baseboard heaters. Ductless systems can be installed in home additions, new construction, apartments and condominiums, or to help improve the temperature control in certain rooms. Ductless systems can even be added in building that already use ducted forced-air systems.
Cost Effective: One of the biggest reasons homeowners switch to ductless cooling and heating is the overall cost savings. In recent years, utility costs have skyrocketed. When a home’s temperature depends on an inefficient ducted system, monthly bills can quickly soar out of control. Ductless systems operate on less power – they are smaller than traditional forced-air systems, and because the temperature-controlled air is delivered directly into a room, there is no loss in efficiency. Multi-split systems allow homeowners to create “zones” in their home, which means they no longer have to cool or heat unused rooms.
Improved Indoor Air Quality: Often, the quality of indoor air can be lower than the quality of outdoor air. With traditional ducted systems must be professionally cleaned on a regular basis, even after cleaning allergens, dust and bacteria can be left behind. Ductless systems use a multi-stage filtration system, which drastically reduces dust, bacteria, pollen, allergens and other particulates in the homes air.
Quick and Easy Installation: Traditional ducted systems can take weeks to install, disturbing the day to day routines in the home. Ductless systems are less invasive to install, and depending on the number of indoor and outdoor units needed, can be up and running in as little as one day.
Multi-split ductless system pipes only require a mere 3 inch hole, resulting in better aesthetics and easier placement.
Ductless cooling and heating systems are energy efficient, environmentally friendly and entirely customizable. They offer homeowners the ability to cool and heat specific zones of their home to the exact temperature they desire, providing consistent and exceptional year-round comfort.
