One of the biggest costs for older homes and condo apartments without central heating and air is the installation of ducts throughout the house. But what if there were a way to install heating and air conditioning without ducts? You can, and if you’re in the Queens area of New York City, call Weston Bros to look into getting a ductless HVAC system.
A ductless heating and cooling system can save you hundreds of dollars, from the easy installation to their energy efficient design. When installing a Mitsubishi Electric system, it goes right into the window, like an air conditioning unit. However, it doesn’t require you to open the walls up to run ducting, making the process easier while saving you money.
Ducts often run through uninsulated space, which can lead to heat loss. And if there is a leak in the duct, there is no insulation to absorb the energy loss, causing higher engery bills. Also, the thermostat ends up placed in a less-than-ideal location that doesn’t necessarily reflect the temperature of the rest of the rooms. Both of these can lead to the HVAC unit running more than it should or requires turning the temperature up or down to get the house comfortable.
For those who are environmentally conscious, ductless HVAC systems earn high energy star ratings. Not only will you save on the operational costs of the unit, but you'll also be eligible for rebates during tax time.
