Reasons to Consider Ductless Air Conditioning
Comfort doesn’t come cheap. Trying to stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter is expensive – even in relatively moderate climates, like San Diego. Across the U.S., heating and cooling represents about half of the average homeowner’s utility bill.
So, why would anyone ignore opportunities to save on their energy bills?
The answer is simple: many people aren’t aware of all the cost-effective opportunities available. The option to install a ductless system, for instance, is often overlooked — despite the fact that it can bring significant savings on cooling and heating.
Here are four of the best reasons to invest in ductless heating and cooling technology in your home or office.
More Money in Your Pocket
Ductless heating and cooling systems operate by using less power overall, significantly cutting the monthly energy bill. Property residents also benefit from the ability to personalize the perfect temperature for each zone of the house, depending on your needs and preferences. This unique feature ensures that energy isn’t wasted in an unoccupied room of your home — further lowering your bill each month.
Reduction of Your Carbon Footprint
Saving money is a worthwhile perk — but how many home improvements allow you to save money and improve your planet at the same time? Going “green” has a reputation for being the more costly option, but that’s not true in every case. Ductless heating and cooling systems enable both financial and environmental benefits, by using significantly less energy than traditional HVAC systems. These innovative mini-split designs are manufactured to reduce the effects of HVAC systems on the environment, through a zero-ozone depleting refrigerant called R410A. And because they take up very little space — often as much as the average microwave — ductless air conditioning allows homeowners to vastly increase their energy efficiency.
Individual (and Improved) Air Quality
Ductless heating and cooling systems keep your indoor air fresh and void of irritants. Clean indoor air isn’t just vital for people suffering from nasal allergens, but for the overall health of yourself and your family. These revolutionary ductless mini-split systems offer multi-stage filtration — stopping dust, dander, bacteria and pollen from invading your precious indoor airspace. Ductless systems also give individuals control over the temperature of a certain room, allowing for customization of air flow that isn’t possible with traditional HVAC systems.
While traditional duct system installations are incredibly disruptive, installing a ductless mini-split system is a much easier and smoother process. Basic ductless systems can be installed in a matter of hours, instead of taking an entire day. Instead of making space for heavy duty space-hogging hardware, installation for ductless vents simply requires drilling a few holes in the existing architecture of your home. Despite its ease of installation relative to a traditional duct system, it’s still wise to have an expert do the work for you, to ensure it’s done right. Find an HVAC technician who knows the ropes and can quickly and efficiently get your system up and running.
A ductless air conditioning system really is the complete package: energy efficient, cost effective, health restorative, and easy to install. By switching to energy-efficient ductless cooling and heating vents, you can take control of your energy consumption — and keep more money in your wallet each month.
