5 Advantages of Ductless Heating & Cooling
Ductless split systems, also referred to as ductless mini splits are becoming an increasingly popular source of cooling and/or heating. The system’s soaring high efficiencies and versatility make it an attractive option for home and business owners that want to maximize comfort and save energy.
What is Ductless Heating & Cooling?
Conventional HVAC systems can become costly to operate and sometimes are impractical to install. Ductless mini splits offer an alternative approach to targeted heating and cooling. Each installed system contains an outdoor heat pump that is paired with anywhere from 1 to 8 indoor air handlers. The indoor units are responsible for distributing air evenly throughout any given room or zone.
Where are Ductless Systems Installed?
Ductless mini splits are extremely versatile and offer one of the most flexible ways to heat and cool any space. Below are some of the most popular ductless applications:
- Insufficient Ductwork – Ductless split systems are perfect for homes or offices that lack sufficient ductwork for central heating and cooling.
- Additions or Renovations – Ductless mini splits offer an easy and affordable way to heat / cool your addition, without causing extra strain on your current system. Not to mention, you can avoid the mess of tapping into your existing ductwork.
- Create More Usable Living Space – Ductless is an ideal solution for uneven temperatures as well as hot/cold spots. They are a great fit for all-season rooms, basements, attics, home offices, bedrooms and more.
- Light Commercial – Ductless split systems aren’t just for homes, they are a great addition to any light commercial space as well. They can be utilized to cool and/or heat churches, office buildings, data centers, hotel rooms and more.
What are the 4 Advantages of Ductless Mini Splits?
1. Energy Efficient
The Ductwork from a traditional HVAC system can leak, attributing to as much as 25% or more in energy loss. Because ductless systems don’t utilize air ducts, they are by far more efficient than a conventional system. Not to mention, the system’s inverter technology automatically adjusts the speed of the compressor in order to deliver more even temperatures and consistent comfort.
Ductless split systems can be easily installed in just about any application. They offer minimal structural disruption, making them one of the most versatile HVAC solutions on the market.
3. Maximize Comfort
Ductless technology is highly effective at delivering the perfect temperature, maximizing comfort in every space of your home or office.
4. Improved Air Quality
A ductless system’s use of multi-stage filtration can drastically reduce airborne particles such as dust, bacteria, pollen, allergens and other irritants. If someone in your home suffers from allergies or asthma, you should consider ductless as a way to improve the air that they breathe.
