Is your ducted heating and air conditioning system starting showing signs of wear? A reputable technician should be able to fix faulty systems with no worry. But if you own an older system, a replacement is possibly a more cost-effective option.
If you’re looking for a more efficient replacement to your traditional ducted system, consider switching to ductless units.
Here are some ways ductless HVAC systems can give you greater value for your money:
More Living Space
Ductless HVAC units are smaller than their ducted counterparts, and because there’s no more need to devote space to bulky ductwork, you get more living space. They are also unobtrusive, as you can install them high up on a wall. If you live in a smaller home, you may even opt for a ductless mini-split system.
Traditional HVAC systems can be noisy. You may remember being startled by the sound of air whistling through the ductwork. The sound the furnace makes as it cuts on or off may also have roused you in the middle of the night.
You experience none on these with a ductless HVAC system. Ductless units let you sleep without interruption, as these units hardly make any sound. They are ideal for light sleepers or families with a newborn.
Better Indoor Air Quality
The accumulation of dirt, dust, and pet dander, among other irritants, can negatively affect the indoor air quality (IAQ), or the quality of air, inside your home. These contaminants reside in your ductwork, and every time your HVAC system cycles on, they get dragged through the ductwork and into your home. The unit’s air filter will sift them, but smaller particles can still find their way out through the vents.
Ductless systems are ideal when looking to improve the IAQ. The lack of ductwork saves you from worrying about contaminants that reside in areas you can’t reach. You also get to keep your household healthy, while dodging the extra costs associated with duct cleaning.
Reduced Energy Bills
Ductless systems help reduce your heating and cooling bills in several ways. One, they are much smaller than traditional duct systems, which means they use up less energy. Second, they give you control over where the heated or cooled air goes (thanks to their zoning capability — more on this later).
Zoned HVAC systems, as mentioned earlier, lets you control the temperature in the different rooms of your home independently. On top of even heating and cooling throughout the home, zoned ductless systems also translate to bigger savings. With no instances of overcooling or overheating certain sections of the home, you don’t pay for wasted energy.
