5 Advantages of a Ductless System

Ductless Systems Have Advantages

You've probably seen a ductless heating and cooling system somewhere in your daily travels. Also known as mini-splits, they are the units that hang high on the wall in office buildings, dorm rooms, restaurants, or homes. This type of system brings several advantages. Let's look at the top five.

#1 Finer Temperature Control

Each mini-split system works independently. It controls the temperature in a particular room or zone of a building, instead of working to keep the entire house at the same temperature. This allows each zone to have a different temperature according to the needs of its occupants. It also makes it possible to turn off the system when the room or area is not in use.

#2 Ease of Installation

One of the biggest reasons people choose a mini-split system is because it's so easy to install. The inside unit hangs high on the wall. It's controlled by a remote from inside. It connects with the outside unit using pipes that go directly through a small hole in the wall. The outside unit sits beside the house or mounts to its side. There is no disruption from installing ducts and almost no mess to clean up. The installation can happen in just a few hours when done by a professional HVAC technician.

#3 Energy Efficient

If you want to lower your energy bills, a ductless heating and cooling system is the way to go. It's extremely efficient because it's only controlling the temperature in a small area. The temperature can be set to adjust the temperature based on a schedule of when people are home, away, or sleeping. They follow ENERGY STAR guidelines which means they are far more efficient than most other systems.

#4 Improved Air Quality

One of the hidden advantages of the mini-split system is the fact that it has multi-stage filtration built-in. This helps to reduce the amount of allergens, dust, pollen, bacteria, and mold spores in the air. It's a great solution for anyone looking to improve their indoor air quality.

#5 Flexibility

Mini-split systems can be installed in many places where putting a traditional system would be intrusive or destructive. They work perfectly for new additions or adding conditioned air to homes without existing systems. They give more precise control in rooms where temperatures fluctuate a great deal. These systems also work in new construction, apartments, and condominiums.

If you are in the market for a new heating and cooling system, a ductless mini-split may be just the answer you're looking for. It's efficient, doesn't take long to install, and highly flexible. It will save you money on your energy bills and give you better air quality at the same time. Call us at (215) 372-8636 or use our online form today to learn more!
