While many people are familiar with central air and heating, a ductless split system may be a new concept to many. Ductless systems work in a way similar to window units, where they directly cool an isolated area; yet, these systems have one unit that is installed within the home itself (generally close to the ceiling) while the other half of the system is installed outdoors, much like a central HVAC system. These units are a great solution for many homes, particularly those without ductwork. They also have many benefits over a traditional window unit.
If you’re used to more traditional HVAC systems, you may be missing out on the great benefits of owning a ductless system. Take a look at this rundown of all the perks that a ductless split system could offer to you and your family.
Ductless Split Systems can help you save money. This is because many of the more traditional systems use more energy to operate. A ductless system is smaller than a typical forced air system and is specifically targeted to individual rooms, so no energy is wasted cooling or heating unoccupied rooms.
Additionally, homeowners may qualify for certain tax credits or rebates for the year they install a ductless system—talk about a double dose of money savings!
Ductless systems are actually pretty simple to install. Unlike traditional systems that rely on ductwork and can take time for proper installation, a ductless system in much faster. to install. Depending on the requirements of your home, you very well could have your ductless system installed and running within one day! These systems are also not at all invasive, meaning no major disruptions to your home during install—they only require a insignificant hole to access the small pipes they run on.
Better Indoor Air Quality
Indoor air can be quite polluted due to the buildup of airborne pollutants in an enclosed space. In traditional HVAC systems, air ducts tend to collect dust and other debris that can significantly impact the quality of your home’s indoor air. Ductless systems, on the other hand, offer exceptional filtration at multiple levels, which help combat dust, pollen, allergens and other airborne pollutants in the home.
Both the size and the zoning flexibility of a ductless system encourage energy efficiency. All ductless cooling and heating systems follow ENERGY STAR guidelines, meaning that they are more energy efficient than the minimum standards outlined by the federal government. Many traditional HVAC systems are set at these minimum standards, or just above, and waste a lot of energy on operation. This adds up on energy bills. Ductless systems however, are rated much higher than the minimum, not only offering improved efficiency, but also a better and more environmentally friendly solution to heating and cooling your home.
