Do you have spaces in your home that always end up hotter or colder than what your thermostat reads? For bigger or multi-level homes, it can be inefficient from both an energy and a cost standpoint to heat and cool your home. It’s possible that a ductless heating and cooling system could be right for you. Consider these advantages of ductless heating.
Ductless systems save you money both on energy costs and on installation. Because ductless systems pump air directly into the area, they are extremely efficient with little heat loss. In addition, the heat can be directed to specific zones, heating some rooms while bypassing others. This all translates to less money spent on heating or cooling costs. There are also rebates and tax credits available at the state, federal and local level that reduces the cost of installing a ductless system. Any way you look at it, installing a ductless heating and cooling system will save you money in the long run.
Improves Air Quality
Traditional HVAC systems can actually reduce the air quality in your home. Dust, pet hair, bacteria and other airborne particles collect in the ductwork and are later dispersed into your living space. Regular professional cleaning helps but can leave a bit of dust and allergens behind. Ductless systems contain multi-stage filtration systems that filter bacteria, allergens and dust particles from the air, pumping clean, fresh air into your rooms. If you are concerned about the air quality in your home, a ductless heating and cooling system may be the answer you are looking for.
Traditional HVAC systems can take weeks to install and may require moving walls or reducing the usable square footage of your home. The inconvenience and hassle of contractors working in your home may disrupt your family life and leave you feeling like you are living in a construction zone. Installing a ductless system can typically be done in a day or two and doesn’t require major reconstruction. That means less disruption for you and your family and lower costs on labor.
Lowers Energy Consumption
Ductless systems are more energy efficient and consume less energy than traditional HVAC systems. That means you pay less on energy costs, of course, but that’s not the only advantage. These systems reduce the carbon output, making them better for the environment. In fact, ductless systems utilize a refrigerant (R410A) that does not deplete ozone. Anything you can do to protect the environment is always worth it.
