Ductless Heating and Cooling Systems
Every home has at least one problem room. It’s either too hot or too cold. To get that room to the right temperature, the rest of the house ends up being uncomfortable. Or you may have rooms that aren’t in use but you are still heating and cooling them. This is a waste of money and energy. A ductless heating and cooling system can solve this problem.
You may have heard of ductless cooling and heating systems or have seen the small, indoor units installed high on walls in homes, restaurants or office buildings. But how do they work?
Ductless Systems are Highly Flexible Solutions
Ductless cooling and heating systems, sometimes referred to as a split system, deliver air directly into different zones. Unlike traditional heat pumps and central air conditioning systems force cooled and heated air through duct work, ductless systems are comprised of a small outdoor unit and one or more indoor units. These require nothing more than a place to be mounted and access to electricity.
Cost-effective for both home and business, the ductless system is a great alternative to inefficient window units, space heaters and electric baseboard heaters. They are perfect for installation in home additions, new construction, condominiums and apartments, or to improve temperature control in specific rooms.
Smaller than traditional forced-air systems, ductless systems use less power. They are highly efficient because the temperature-controlled air is delivered directly into a room. Multi-split systems allow homeowners to create “zones” in their home. This means they no longer have to cool or heat rooms that aren’t occupied.
Overall cost savings is one of the biggest reasons homeowners switch to ductless cooling and heating. Dependence on an inefficient system can cause monthly utility costs to skyrocket. The year a ductless system is installed, homeowners may also be eligible for tax credits or utility rebates. There are many federal, state and local programs available to homeowners.
Improved Indoor Air Quality
It’s a fact that surprises most people. The quality inside your home is often worse than the quality of outdoor air. With traditional HVAC systems, air ducts must be professionally cleaned on a regular basis. Even after cleaning, dust and allergens are left behind.
Ductless systems offer multi-stage filtration. Drastically reducing dust, bacteria, pollen and other allergens, it improves your home’s air quality.
Quick and Easy Installation
Ductless systems are much less invasive to install. A traditional, ducted system can take several weeks and completely disrupts your home. Depending upon the number of indoor and outdoor units required, a ductless system is installed and running in a single day.
Multi-split systems run on small pipes that require a mere three-inch hole. This means there are no worries about rebuilding walls or ceilings around ductwork. Also, the homeowner will not lose any precious square footage.
Reduced Carbon Footprint
The small size of a ductless cooling system and its zoning capabilities allow for reduced energy consumption. While the improved efficiency of the system saves money, it also helps reduce your total carbon output.
Additionally, these systems use a refrigerant called R410A, which is known for its zero ozone depletion potential. This means there will be less environmental impact throughout the system’s lifecycle.
