Home heating and cooling can be a challenge under certain conditions. Are there rooms in your home that just don’t stay comfortable? Have you added an addition and need a way to heat and cool it without breaking the bank? Ductless HVAC technology is an excellent solution for many home heating and cooling scenarios – it may be right for you if you find yourself facing one of the following comfort problems!
Ductless HVAC systems, also called ductless mini-split systems, provide zoned home heating and cooling to the specific areas where they are installed. These efficient systems can help you save up to 30 percent on energy costs, eliminating energy lost through ducts in the home.
Rooms Don’t Stay Comfortable
Many homeowners have that one (or multiple!) space that just doesn’t seem to stay comfortable, no matter how the thermostat is set. This can be caused by many factors, such as home construction, sunlight exposure, or the need for HVAC repairs to the existing furnace or air conditioner.
Installing a ductless HVAC unit in the problem area is an economical and energy efficient home heating and cooling solution. The air handler unit will deliver appropriate temperatures to the space, independent of the home’s main heating and cooling system. You’ll gain precise comfort control with efficient energy consumption – never worry about keeping problem areas comfy again!
New Room Additions
Adding a room to your home can offer the space you need for working, hobbies, or family living. This addition will need home heating and cooling to keep you comfortable, but is extending your current HVAC system possible?
In situations where a room has been added, installing a ductless HVAC system is often preferred over HVAC repairs or replacement to extend the current system. Your existing HVAC system may not have the capacity to heat and cool the additional area, so tying the system to your new addition could create comfort and energy efficiency issues throughout the entire home. Plus, you’ll need HVAC repairs for ducting replacement to extend the forced air system – an element that may not be possible space-wise or financially.
A ductless HVAC system can be installed directly within the new addition to provide heating and cooling independent of the rest of the home. Your ductless system will allow you to control temperatures in this area without affecting the rest of the home, as one major benefit of ductless home heating and cooling is zoned comfort!
Home Doesn’t Have Ducts, or Ducting Replacement Is Needed
If your home does not have a duct system installed or you are in need of ducting replacement, the cost of installing a new forced air home heating or cooling system may be beyond your budget. Ductless HVAC offers an economical solution in homes without existing ductwork or where duct systems are inefficient, allowing energy to escape.
Ductless HVAC systems do not use a duct system to deliver conditioned air. The system’s air handler is installed directly in the area it will serve, delivering conditioned air from the unit in the room, rather than from the furnace or air conditioner through a duct system. If your HVAC repair technician finds you are in need of ducting replacement, ask about ductless solutions to keep your home comfortable.
