We’ve heard there has been a showdown between traditional heating & cooling systems and ductless mini-split systems! While many of us know more about traditional HVAC systems. We want you to know there are advantages to ductless systems before you make a final decision for your home!
Converting to a ductless system is quick and easy. Depending on the size of your home, typically a new system can be installed in one day. Installation on new construction is also popular for homes with open concept designs.
Poorly maintained ductwork significantly contributes to indoor air pollution. Dust, debris, and bacteria can circulate throughout your home’s air via leaks and holes in your air ducts. If you have household members with allergies or asthma, a ductless system will help eliminate potential harmful effects on their health due to their duct-LESS design
The main reason people are starting to gravitate towards ductless systems is because of their flexibility. You don’t have to retrofit ductless systems into an already existing system and they can adequately compensate for any room size. Because the indoor units can be installed easily everywhere, they are also perfect when adding additions to your home!
Because ductless systems can be specifically zoned throughout your home, they allow you to heat and cool only the rooms you desire. Ductless systems follow Energy Star guidelines and are far more energy-efficient than the minimum standards previously set by the government. Mini-splits also only use R410A refrigerant because it is environmentally friendly and does not deplete the ozone layer.
When a home’s temperature is operating with an inefficient system, monthly bills can quickly increase. Ductless systems operate on less power because they are smaller than traditional forced-air systems. They also deliver temperature-controlled air directly into a room, avoiding unnecessary power and money being used. In addition to saving money on utilities, an incentive for homeowners to install a ductless system is to be eligible for tax credits or utility rebates for the year.
