Top 4 Benefits of Ductless HVAC Systems
Have you ever wondered what the benefits of ductless HVAC systems are? Wonder no more. In this article, we discuss exactly just that!
The technological advances in HVAC have made the ductless system the most preferred choice for new homes and office buildings. The ductless system comprises of an outside condenser or compressor and an indoor air handler. As they are small in size they are much quieter than the traditional HVAC systems.
The ductless systems are truly versatile and this can enable you to easily cool and heat areas that are usually hard to reach. You may be able to choose different temperature zones in each room. It means that each zone is customized to meet the expectations of the occupant. This is one of the reasons why they have become a popular choice not just in new homes but in old ones too.
Ductless HVAC Systems
1. Flexible Solutions
The traditional air conditioning systems forced hot and cool air through ducts whereas the new ductless systems deliver air directly to different zones of the room. They usually comprise of one or more indoor units and an outdoor unit. All that is required is access to electricity and mounting capabilities.
The ductless systems are also referred to as multi-split, split and split ductless systems and are a cost-effective way to replace the old inefficient air conditioning systems. They can be easily installed in new homes, apartments, and condominiums with the ability to control the temperature in different rooms. They are ideal for cooling and heating small rooms.
2. Save Money
One of the biggest benefits of switching to a ductless system is cost savings. When you have an inefficient air conditioning system the energy bills may shoot through the roof. The ductless systems consume less power compared to the traditional air conditioners. The ductless systems do not have ducts, so you may be able to avoid the energy loss that is normally associated with ductworks.
The air that is temperature controlled is delivered directly to the room, resulting in more efficiency. The homeowners may be able to create zones in their homes with this multi-split unit. This means that rooms that are not occupied do not have to be cooled or heated up.
In addition to saving money on the energy bill, homeowners installing the ductless systems are also eligible for utility rebates and tax credits. Many programs have been announced at the local, state and federal levels that allow homeowners to take advantage of the savings.
3. Lowers Carbon Footprint
The ductless cooling system is small and its zone capability feature enables greater energy efficiency. These systems follow energy star guidelines and this makes them more energy efficient than the minimum standards that have been set forth by the government.
The improved efficiency not just saves money but also reduces the total carbon output. They have less impact on the environment and are considered environmental friendly. The quality of air is improved when you install a ductless system. The multi-stage filtration can help reduce allergens, bacteria, dust, pollen and other particles in the air. The filters can be easily cleaned and reused and this helps generate less waste.
4. Quick and Easy to Install
Installing a traditional air conditioning system may take days and sometimes weeks and may disrupt all activities at home. The ductless systems are easy to install and depending on the number of indoor and outdoor units that need to be installed the entire installation process can be completed in a day.
The ductless systems run on small pipes. A small three-inch hole is required to install these pipes. This means that the homeowners do not have to worry about rebuilding walls and ceilings around the ductwork.
When choosing a ductless system, it is important that you choose the right size for the room or area. If you choose a wrong size, you may not be able to get the benefits. If you are unsure about choosing the right size, you can contact a reputed HVAC contractor so that you are guided properly and choose a size that is ideal for your new home.
