Ductless or mini-split HVAC systems often have more than one indoor air handling unit. They connect to an outdoor unit through a small conduit for refrigerant, so you don’t need ductwork. The small, quiet indoor units can hang on your ceilings or walls, and they’re available in a range of colors and styles to match the decor in your Charlotte, North Carolina, home. These systems are economical, as well. A ductless HVAC system offers low utility bills, easy installation and simple maintenance.
Low Utility Bills
Since ductless systems don’t have ducts, they’ll never waste energy via duct leaks or clogs. Your fan also won’t need to move conditioned air all the way from one side of your home to another.
Many systems offer zoning, and each indoor unit has a separate thermostat. As a result, you can set each indoor unit at a different temperature and avoid heating or cooling unoccupied rooms.
If you’re building a new home, you can save money by installing a ductless HVAC system. That way, your contractor won’t have to spend time and resources designing and installing ductwork. Ductless systems are also more compact, lighter and simpler to install.
With a ductless HVAC system, you’ll never need to clean or repair ductwork again. If you already have ducts, your service technician will seal them after installation to keep pests, dust and dirt out.
Like conventional systems, you should have your ductless HVAC system checked by a professional at least once per year. Fortunately, replacing a ductless indoor unit is less expensive than a new conventional system. Without ductwork to carry contaminants like pollen or dirt through your system, you should have fewer breakdowns.
