3 Ways a Ductless Heating & Cooling System Will Save You Money, Boston, Massachusetts

One area of your home that can be easily updated to save you money on your monthly energy bills is your outdated HVAC system. According to Trethewey Brothers — Mitsubishi Electric Diamond Contractors in the Greater Boston area — you could save 20% to 50% a year on your utility bills when you upgrade a system that is 10 to 15 years old.

For the largest decrease in energy usage, making the swap from a traditional central unit to a ductless heating and cooling system is the trick. Below are few ways it will help you save money:

  • ductless heating and coolingFlexible Heating & Cooling: Multi-zone cooling and heating is beneficial when several people are living in a home. These systems consist of one outdoor compressor that connects to multiple indoor units set up in various zones throughout the home. You and your family members get to dictate which zones are being cooled or heated at any given time. This means energy use never has to be wasted in areas where no one is present.
  • Less Heat Loss: Up to 30% of energy is lost through the ductwork alone in most traditional HVAC systems. This number can grow even higher if the ducts run through uninsulated spaces like the attic. There is also the chance for ductwork to be improperly installed or develop a leak, which could cause your monthly utility bills to climb. Ductless heating and cooling systems avoid this waste and save you money in the process.
  • Temperature Control: Another way a traditional central unit drains energy is by using a single-speed compressor, which turns on when it detects the temperature is higher or lower than it should be. When this detection is made, the compressor runs at high speed until the temperature has reached the desired setting; it then shuts off and allows the space to warm or cool once more. This constant process uses a lot of energy. Ductless heating and cooling systems have an inverter-driven compressor to ensure the temperature is constant all the time. This removes the need for continuously shutting on and off.
