Going Ductless! What Everyone Ought To Know About Ductless Systems
Spring is here, with summer close behind! That means the heat is nearly upon us, and there’s no better feeling than coming in from the stifling outdoors to a cool and comfortable home. But have you ever experienced the opposite effect? Walking into a warm house when it’s hot outside can automatically destroy your comfort. Maybe you’ve got that one cool room in the house that reflects the temperature you set the thermostat to, but the rest are lukewarm. Unfortunately, this is a common situation. Many homes don’t have the proper circulation of heating or cooling due to poorly constructed ductwork, leaky ducts, or simply the structure of the home itself. So how can you be sure that air is circulating in the rooms YOU want it to? The solution is a Ductless Heating and Cooling System!
What Are Ductless Systems And How Do They Work?
Ductless systems are reversible, 2-way pumps that use electricity to transfer heating or cooling. They pull outdoor air in and use “inverter technology” to make the air warmer or cooler, depending on your desired temperature. The system uses two units to complete the process: the outdoor unit and the indoor unit. Both are equally important for the other to function. The outdoor unit gathers the air and heats or cools it, then sends it to the indoor unit, which evaporates and disperses the air into the desired zone. By choosing precisely where you want your air distributed, you can save a boatload on the air that would have been wasted in rooms that aren’t being occupied.
Is My Home In Need Of A Ductless System?
Not only are Ductless systems perfect for homes with inefficient heating or cooling, but also for homes that are undergoing remodeling or additions. Rather than extending the home’s ductwork (which is expensive and time-consuming), a Ductless system can provide the same efficient heating or cooling at a lower operating cost! When a new home is being constructed, it’s a good idea to consider installing Ductless systems from the get-go, that way you can install one or more systems in the desired areas of your home, utilizing the full benefits of going Ductless!
Go Ductless, Go Efficient
Are they efficient? In this day and age, people are more aware of conserving energy, so this is a valid question. The answer is yes! Because you can personalize where the majority of the heated or cooled air is being distributed, you don’t waste any air or use unnecessary resources! According to ENERGY STAR®, heating and cooling cost the average homeowner $1,000 a year, which is nearly half of the home’s total energy bill! Ductless systems operate using 25%-50% less energy than other systems, and ductwork loses as much as 30% of its efficiency due to leaks and conduction. Eliminating the need for ductwork in your home will put money back in your pocket, and using a Ductless heating and cooling system could cut your bill by 30%. You’ll save money and be more energy-efficient! So what are you waiting for?
