Ductless System: The Four Advantages of Having A Ductless System
Did you know there is an alternative to using your air conditioner and heating system that only involves installing one system?
For many homeowners, a ductless system is becoming the preferred option for home temperature control.
They’re good at not only keeping your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
We get it that choosing the right HVAC system for your household can seem overwhelming, as there are many options.
Not all homes are candidates for a ductless system, but our pros can help you make an informed decision about what’s best for your household.
The Ductless System Setup
As the name implies, a ductless heating and cooling system is a home comfort device that doesn’t rely on a network of ducts.
It is comprised of one outdoor condenser unit, connected via refrigerant and power lines to individual air handlers that are each installed throughout the home.
A ductless system works similarly to a traditional central air conditioner, moving heat from one place to another.
A reversing valve is all that’s needed to switch the flow of refrigerant, allowing for summertime cooling and wintertime heating.
To cool your home, heat is absorbed from indoors and moved outside.
During the winter, heat is absorbed from the outside and moved indoors.
So now you know the setup, but is it right for your specific home?
Here are 4 reasons it may very well be:
Ductless systems can both heat and cool homes, enabling year-round comfort all from one system, just by flipping a switch (which activates the reversing valve to put the system in heating mode or cooling mode).
If you don’t already have ductwork in your home to accommodate the traditional central HVAC setup, then installing ductwork can be a difficult and expensive process.
And may not even be possible at all if your living space simply doesn’t have the room.
There’s no need to worry about servicing two different HVAC systems.
When you go ductless, you’ll no longer have to maintain, repair, or replace both a heater and an air conditioner.
Ductless systems operate using less energy than other methods due to their small size and setup.
With ductless systems, homeowners have the ultimate control of the temperature of the air going into each room of their home, meaning they have the ultimate control over efficiency.
Since ductless systems have no ducts, you can avoid the energy loss associated with ductwork leaks.
A tear or breach in a forced-air system’s ductwork could account for up to 30% of air loss.
A ductless system can save you a ton of money on your utility bills.
Essentially what that means is that you’d be paying for air conditioning or forced-air heating that you don’t get to enjoy.
This simply can’t happen with a ductless system.
