Understanding Ductless Heating and Cooling Systems

First off, let’s confirm one thing. “Ductless” does not run through or require ductwork in your home. It focuses all its efforts on the room it is installed in. That allows you to keep that room at the temperature you desire without affecting the rest of the house.

Pros of Ductless

New Additions: The extra cost of including ductwork in the cost of a new room can add up. Installing a ductless system can be a money saving alternative.

Temperature Control: Many of us are trying to save on energy costs whenever possible. Installing ductless systems to rooms will allow you to control the temperature on a room to room basis, instead of involving the entire house. Closing ducts to rooms seldom used can be a temporary alternative, but over time and seasonal weather changes, you can run the risk of promoting mold and mildew.

Targeting a Room: Ever wish that the favorite room your family spends most of their time in could be warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, then the rest of the house? A ductless system in that room would grant you that convenience.

Adding AC: Don’t have ductwork ? A ductless Cooling system could be an alternative to the high cost of adding ductwork to your home.

Cons of Ductless

Cost: The initial cost of ductless is more than traditional heating or cooling. But over time you will have greater control of your family’s comfort and reap energy savings benefits.

Maintenance: Filters require monthly maintenance.

Aesthetics: Ductless system are fairly simple in their exterior design and cannot be covered. They remain as a constant wall fixture in the home.
