Ductless HVAC is an intimidating concept for some. After all, how is a system supposed to cool and heat your home AND save you money without having direct routes from place to place?
Regardless of what the common perception seems to be, however, ductless HVAC systems are quickly rising in popularity due to their high-efficiency designs and user-friendly models.
In this article, we’ll explain what ductless HVAC systems are, how they work, and why you should at least consider ductless HVAC technology for your home or business.
What is a Ductless HVAC System?
Generally, ductless HVAC systems are composed of two individual units (one outdoor and one indoor) that are connected via refrigerant tubing. Usually, the indoor unit is wall-mounted and blows cool or hot air directly into the living space.
How Does a Ductless HVAC System Work?
To explain how ductless systems work, it’s first necessary to go over how a normal HVAC system works.
Typically, your HVAC system will have one outdoor unit that cools your entire house through a series of ducts that carry the air to different rooms. With a ductless system, however, the air is blown directly into one living space.
These systems can be installed with one or multiple indoor units for the best cooling and heating efficiency. No matter how many units you have, however, there will be no ducts in your home. The only connection between those units and your outdoor one will be the refrigerant tubing we previously mentioned.
What Are the Pros of a Ductless HVAC System?
As with anything, there are pros and cons to ductless HVAC systems. However, in our opinion, the pros far outweigh any cons you’ll find yourself facing (they are really quite limited).
Pro #1: High Energy Efficiency
Because your indoor units are connected directly to your outdoor unit, you’ll find that your ductless system operates with a much higher efficiency than your ducted system does. This then converts into tons of saved money in the long run.
Pro #2: Preservation of Decor and Living Areas
If you move into an older home or one that simply does not have duct work for central heating and air, trying to get that installed can harm the integrity of your home and can cost an arm and a leg. By going ductless, you’d be doing yourself a massive favor.
Additionally, most indoor units sport very sleek designs that add to the overall class of a room instead of taking away from it.
Pro #3: Efficiently Cool New Spaces
If you are a fan of renovation and new spaces, you may often find yourself wanting to add areas onto your home. Or let’s say you’re considering adding heating or cooling to your garage. The ductwork for these areas can be a nightmare.
With a ductless system, you can bypass that pain and simply add another indoor unit.
