Relatively new to the industry is the concept of ductless heating and air conditioning. Today, you can learn about how having a ductless unit or a duct free mini split system can benefit you and how it will work to save you money in the long run.
Benefits of Duct Free Units for a Home
Duct free units offer many benefits to those who choose to install them in their home. One of the biggest ways a duct free unit can benefit you is during the installation process. If you choose to install a ductless system, installation is quick and easy compared to installing new air ducts or replacing pre-existing ducts. Depending on the number of units that need to be installed, your home could be ready to cool or heat in as little as a single day.
Benefits of Ductless Units for an Office
Choosing an HVAC system for your office can be complicated, but with the availability of ductless units for the office spaces your building may have, your problem becomes a lot easier to solve. You no longer need to question how big or small of a system the whole space needs or if it is best to have a single-stage, two-stage, or modulating unit in your office. By choosing to heat and cool your office space with ductless units, you don’t need to worry about finding the answers to those questions.
Benefits of Duct Free Units for Both
When installing ductless units in your home, there is little cosmetic damage as a result. During the installation process, a small hole is drilled into the wall to make the unit less vulnerable to air leakage, more aesthetically pleasing, and less audible.
Each room or space in any structure is going to require a different amount of air or heat depending on the location, windows, ventilation, and insulation. With a mini split system, you can give each room exactly what it needs to feel comfortable.
With duct free mini split systems for heating and air conditioning, you can put a stop to thermostat arguments and the ongoing battle of shedding or layering clothes to stay comfortable in your home or office. If it is important to you that your employees are able to customize the temperature of their space, you will want to opt for a ductless unit. Wherever more than two people share a space, someone is going to be unhappy with the temperature.
Duct free units also improve the indoor air quality of your home or office. Many ductless units offer multi-stage filtration systems that drastically reduce the dust, bacteria, and allergens in the air that you and others are breathing in.
How Can Duct Free Units Save Me Money?
By having ductless units installed in your home or office, the investment of that installation will pay off. You will see the reward in your decreasing monthly bills.
If your current home or commercial space does not have central air, ductless air conditioning is a viable option for you. The cost of having ductwork installed throughout your home will outweigh the installation costs of your ductless units.
Ductless mini split systems allow you to turn the units you are using or not using on and off. Instead of heating an entire home or office, you can turn on a unit in a specific space while the others are turned off, not using additional energy. This option saves you money in the long run because you aren’t trying to heat or cool an entire home or office building. HVAC compressors require a large amount of energy to continuously start up and turn off, meanwhile ductless units have an inverter-driven compressor that slows down and speeds up when needed.
When you purchase an energy star rated unit, you may even receive rebates from your energy provider. Look into the savings opportunities different types of units may offer you and choose the one that suits your home the best. Before you purchase a unit, make sure that it meets the guidelines to qualify for utility rebates.
In the long run, with ductless units or ductless mini split systems you will not have to schedule maintenance to clean the ducts because there aren’t any. In addition, ductless units only require you to wash the filter monthly instead of purchasing a new filter every one to three months to ensure premium air quality.
