Ductless HVAC Offers Homeowners Tremendous Flexibility
Does your Canyon Lake, TX, home have insufficient space to add units to a ducted HVAC system? Indoor comfort experts recommend ductless HVAC systems that are flexible and highly advantageous for all types of homes.
What Is a Ductless HVAC System
Ductless systems, also called mini-split systems, heat and cool single rooms or several rooms at once without using ductwork. Instead, they use indoor handlers that connect to one or more outdoor units.
Single-zone systems use one indoor handler per outdoor unit. Multi-zone systems can connect up to five indoor units to a single outdoor unit.
Ductless systems make excellent choices for the following areas in your home:
- Finished attics and basements
- Home additions
Benefits of Ductless HVAC Systems
Why do people like you decide to install ductless systems? The answer is simple: the benefits are far too attractive to ignore. Not only are mini-split systems energy efficient, but they’re easy to install.
- Energy efficient: Venting and ductwork aren’t necessary for these systems. Traditional ducted systems can leak up to 30% of the air that moves through them, leading to significant energy waste. Since mini-split systems don’t use ducts, air loss and thermal leakage doesn’t happen, making these systems ultra-efficient.
- Flexibility: A ductless HVAC system’s tubing allows it to easily be moved and placed exactly where you want it to go. You can install the unit on the wall or the floor. Moving the unit is no big deal if you change your mind later.
- Zoned comfort: How many arguments have occurred between household members about what the perfect temperature should be? Probably more than you care to count. With ductless systems, you get zoned heating and cooling comfort. Everyone can program the temperature to their liking from room to room, with no more arguments and increased comfort.
