What are some advantages of Ductless Heating and Cooling Systems?
How much do you really know about ductless heating and cooling systems? You’ve probably seen them before, but let’s go over some of the advantages of why many people are switching to them.
They are extremely flexible heating and cooling solutions
Traditional heat pumps and central air conditioning systems force the air through duct work which can be large, cumbersome, and expensive to install. With ductless systems the air can be delivered into different zones directly. The ductless systems only need mounted and powered. You use a small outdoor unit and then inside one more units.
Many home and business owners have found switching to this is a much more cost effective route to go in order to get rid of inefficient window units, space heaters and electric baseboard heaters. The ductless units can be installed just about anywhere to improve temperature control in a room.
They save money!
This is probably the biggest reason people switch, to save money on their utility bills. Since ductless systems are more efficient and operate on less power, you can guarantee you are going to get better results at a fraction of the cost. Being able to target zones means you don’t have to heat or cool an area of the home that isn’t being used. You may even be able to get a tax credit or utility rebate the year that you switch and install the ductless systems.
Improved air quality
Standard air ducts need to be cleaned and maintained regularly to remove dust and allergens that are left behind. This means that sometimes the air indoors is less quality than outdoors. But, thanks to these new smarter ductless systems, they automatically go through a multi-stage filtration to drastically reduce these things as they are running.
They are much easier to install!
Traditional duct work can take weeks of installation and disrupt daily activities in the home or office. Ductless systems can be installed and up and running in a single day.
The multi-split systems run on small pipes and this means they do require a three-inch hole to be made. But, this is again less work than rebuilding walls or ceilings for duct work.
Lower carbon footprint!
Since these ductless heating and cooling solutions are much smarter and more efficient, it would only make sense that they would also be more energy efficient and lower your carbon footprint. These systems also follow ENERGY STAR guidelines, which automatically means they are going to be far more energy efficient than the standards set by the federal government.
They are also built in a way to reduce effects on the environment with their filtration system. Also, they use a refrigerant called R410A known for it’s zero ozone depletion potential.
So, you see, ductless heating and cooling systems are cheaper, more customizable, environmentally friendly, and energy efficient! Look around our website to learn more about the products we offer and feel free to get in touch with us about how we can help you.
