You might have heard about the ductless heating and cooling system and have probably seen its installation of its small and indoor devices on walls in homes, offices and restaurant. This is all you might know, we guess. Here are the advantages of installing the ductless heating and cooling systems.
- They offer highly flexible solutions
Ductless heating and cooling systems are unlike the traditional heat pumps and central air conditioning systems which force the cold and hot air via ducts. On the other hand, ductless systems deliver air directly into various zones. They are composed of a small outdoor unit and the indoor units that need nothing more than mounting features and electricity access. They are also called split systems, split ductless systems, multi-split systems, ductless cooling and heating provide the home and business owners a cost-effective way to replicate their inefficient window systems, space heaters, and electric baseboard heaters. They can be easily installed in new construction, home additions, apartments and condominiums, or to enhance the temperature control in particular rooms. They are even compatible with buildings that utilize ducted forced-air systems.
- They save you a fortune.
One of the major reasons why people switch the ductless heating and cooling systems is the need to save on the energy bills. In the recent times, the utility costs have skyrocketed. When the temperature of a house is reliable on an inefficient system, monthly energy bills can cost you a fortune in no time. Installing ductless heating and cooling systems is a great idea as it operates on less energy, they are smaller in size, unlike the traditional forced-air systems. And as the temperature controlled air is flown directly into a room, there is zero loss in the efficiency department. Multi-split systems also le the user to create specific zones in their house which means they no longer have to heat or cool rooms which are unused. Apart from saving on energy bills, these systems also make you eligible for tax credits or utility rebates for the year of the installation of the ductless system.
- They improve the indoor air quality
Many times, the quality of indoor air is actually poorer than the quality of outdoor air. If you have traditional HVAC system installed in your home, air ducts must be cleaned on a regular basis by a professional. On the other hand, ductless systems provide multi-stage filtration that can significantly eliminate bacteria, dust, pollen, allergens and other pollutants in the air.
- They are easy and quick to install
Installation of a conventional ducted system can take several weeks of your time and disturb the daily operations in the home. On the other hand, ductless systems are far less cumbersome to install. It is dependent upon the number of indoor and outdoor units needed and can be operated in as little as one day. Multi split systems operate on small pipes that need a mere three-inch hole. In other words, the users don’t have to worry about rebuilding walls or any kind of ceilings around the ductwork and there is zero loss of precious square footage.
