When you’re planning on heating or cooling a room that has no ductwork, you start considering ductless ac and heating units. Ductless HVAC systems are energy efficient and extremely practical. Also known as mini-split systems, these ductless units are usually composed of indoor and outdoor units that only need electricity and something to be mounted on.
When you have ducted HVAC, the air is heated or cooled through an entire network of ducts. These ducts are behind the walls and ceilings of your home. Each room is cooled or heated through the same network, providing a uniform and balanced climate in your property. On the other hand, a ductless ac and heating unit doesn’t need ducts to distribute air. The ductless unit will directly heat or cool each room individually, providing you control of the climate in each room.
When you have a ductless system, you get to control the temperature in each room. Fighting over the thermostat can be a thing from the past. Whether you’re a homeowner or a business owner, mini-splits are cost-effective ways to heat or cool any space. Ideal for home additions, new constructions, old buildings without space for ducts, these systems are one of the most flexible options out there.
A better alternative to window units
Ductless units need a small hole to be drilled into the wall, as opposed to the window unit that requires a bigger space. As a result, ductless units are less vulnerable to air leakage, they’re less audible, and visible.
While they have a bigger cost upfront, when you compare to central AC systems, they’re more energy-efficient. When you control each climate, you can save money by only controlling the temperature of the room you’re using. Furthermore, the cooled or heated air won’t escape through the ducts.
