Also known as a ductless mini-split, a ductless HVAC system has numerous potential applications in residential homes. Although a mini-split is often used as a retrofit replacement in homes with ‘non-ducted’ heating, including space heaters and radiant panels, it can also be a great addition to a room or apartment where installing ductwork or extending a central HVAC system is impossible. If your home only needs a small system to heat or cool it, a ductless mini-split might be your answer. Here are the biggest benefits of installing one in your Harrison, OH, home.
Ductless Systems Offer Homeowners Flexibility
Central air conditioners and heat pumps blow air through ducts, while ductless systems are installed into the different rooms or areas in your home and pump the air directly into those spaces. As a result, homeowners benefit from improved temperature control. If you have a window unit or a space heater, a ductless system can also make for a great replacement.
Ductless Systems are Easy to Install
Depending on your home’s layout, it can take a few days or longer to install a ducted system in it. Conversely, a ductless system can start heating or cooling your home in as little as a few hours, depending on the number of units you decide to install.
Ductless Systems Improve Indoor Air Quality
To ensure your indoor air quality doesn’t deteriorate with a ducted system, you have to invest in periodic professional duct cleaning. Ductless systems offer multi-stage filtration, reducing the amount of dirt and debris lingering in your home’s air.
Ductless Systems Provide Greater Energy Efficiency
Since ductless systems are smaller and have better zoning capabilities, they are more energy efficient than ducted systems when operating. In fact, ductless systems follow ENERGY STAR guidelines and use advanced chemical processes that lessen their environmental impact.
Ductless Systems Help Homeowners Save Money
The formula is simple. When you conserve energy, you save money on your utility bills. Ductless systems operate on less power and offer greater temperature control, which both lead to greater savings for homeowners.
