Unless you've just moved into a newly built home or recently had an HVAC system installed, your heating and cooling situation probably has a few flaws. With summer edging closer every day, you need to address these concerns ASAP. If you’re wondering what updates you can do, one of the most accessible and affordable solutions is a ductless HVAC system. Also known as ductless mini-split systems, they have two main parts — an indoor unit that circulates the air and an outdoor unit that serves as a condenser. To understand why these are advantageous to have at home, consider the following points.
The Benefits of Ductless HVAC Systems
Because there are only two major units and no ductwork to deal with, it doesn't take long for an HVAC contractor to install the system. Although it depends on the size of the room and the unit model, professional installations usually take just a day or two. Aside from mounting the indoor unit and setting up the condenser outside, the only other significant task is to make a small hole, just about 3 inches in diameter, to connect the two units.
Due to a home’s layout and particular building materials used, certain rooms are prone to more temperature fluctuations than others. For example, because heat rises, second-floor bedrooms tend to warm up much more than a downstairs living room. Another example is a sunroom. With large, numerous windows, sunrooms heat up much faster than another space on the other side of the house. During winter and some parts of autumn and spring, the constant sunlight is an asset. However, once summer rolls around, it can be uncomfortably warm. Installing a single ductless HVAC unit in a sunroom allows you to keep this room just as comfortable as the rest of the house.
Ductless HVAC systems are designed to adjust to the needs of a single room. Because of this, they can lead to significant savings. For example, if you have a multi-story house and tend to spend most of your time downstairs during summer, it doesn’t make sense to send cool air to the vacant rooms upstairs — this is something that would happen with a central system. Having a ductless system in the most commonly used areas of your home keeps spaces cool only where it's necessary. There are no more wasteful cooling costs to worry about.
