As a Wilmington, NC, homeowner, you know the area temperature swings and humidity impact your utility costs. The drive to address these and other issues have led many homeowners to consider ductless heating and air conditioning. Let’s take a look at how ductless systems work and a few of the benefits they provide.
What’s a Ductless System?
If you find yourself calling more frequently for HVAC maintenance, it may be time to consider your options for a new HVAC system. Ductless systems, often called mini-split systems, are a great option for replacement. They consist of an outdoor air condenser and one or more evaporators inside the home. The condenser transfers refrigerant to and from the evaporator to heat and cool the air inside the home.
Ease of Installation
Ductless system installations are much quicker due to their streamlined design. They need less home modification and less time to install. Your system will be heating and cooling your home sooner, and you’ll save money on installation costs.
According to Energy Star, the average home loses up to 30% of the heat generated by the HVAC system through leaks, holes and improperly installed ducts. Because ductless systems deliver conditioned air directly to the room, there’s no energy loss.
Further, ductless systems operate on less energy to provide heating and cooling than conventional systems. They also provide the ability to set up zones in your home to heat and cool different areas to different temperatures, maximizing comfort and efficiency. Your ductless system purchase may also qualify you for tax credits and incentive programs with your local utilities.
Better Indoor Air Quality
Conventional ductwork collects contaminants and passes them throughout your home as air circulates through the system. Ductless systems deliver filtered air directly into the room, increasing the air quality in your home.
