Explore the Benefits of Ductless HVAC Systems

A Smart Heating and Cooling Solution

Considering the unique characteristics of your home’s construction, a Ductless HVAC System might just be the perfect solution for your heating and cooling needs. In many older homes built before the introduction of internal duct systems, the installation of traditional ductwork may not be feasible. As a result, these homes lack the capability to deliver comfortable air throughout the structure via conventional HVAC systems. However, with a ductless HVAC system, homeowners have an alternative that offers both efficiency and comfort. 

What is a Ductless HVAC System?

Just as the name suggests, a Ductless HVAC System is one where there is not a network of ducts installed into the building’s walls. Instead, these systems (sometimes called mini-split systems) deliver a consistent airflow through a mechanism that is installed on the wall of the building, which is combined with an outdoor compressor. In contrast to a window air conditioning unit, for example, the installation requires only a small hole to be drilled into the wall. This process reduces the likelihood of air leakage or security issues.

What are the benefits of a Ductless HVAC System?

A Ductless HVAC System is extremely energy efficient. When a building has ductwork installed, the HVAC system can experience a loss of up to 25% of the energy produced by the system just by traveling through the ducts. Ductless HVAC Systems are also built to either speed up or slow down the speed of the airflow to accommodate the needs of the system, rather than shutting off entirely like a traditional HVAC system. In comparison, there is a lot of energy that is expelled when the compressor of a traditional HVAC system starts up. A Ductless HVAC System has an inverter-driven compressor, allowing for this increase in energy efficiency.
