Spring is here, and warmer temperatures will be here soon enough. You may be getting ready to shut off your heater for the season and ready to switch on your AC. What if you could achieve all of your cooling and heating needs in one system though? This is possible, with a ductless system.
As the name implies, a ductless system does not require ducts to function. Rather, it functions as a heat pump, pulling warmth from the air into the system and distributing the heat through a series of mini air handlers in your home. In the summertime, this process is reversed to provide you with cooling. But why should you consider installing a ductless system?
No ductwork? No problem! By installing a ductless system, you can avoid installing bulky, inconvenient ductwork. This is especially ideal if you don't already have ductwork in your home, as this kind of installation can get pretty costly.
In addition, with ducted HVAC systems air loss is a risk. Ducts that run through attics or crawlspaces can be damaged, and in turn can cause leaks. If your conditioned air is leaking into these unused spaces, then you are wasting energy.
By using a ductless system, you can heat or cool each room in your home according to your personal preferences. Additionally, the lack of ductwork makes it less likely for contaminants-such as dust and pollen-to get circulated throughout your indoor air, reducing the threat of allergy and asthma symptoms.
You don't need as much room in and around your home for a ductless system as you would a central HVAC system. Plus, the ability to use the system for both heating and cooling means you don't have to purchase two different components for your HVAC system to provide you with year-round comfort.
