It doesn’t matter what type of building you’re dealing with – either residential or commercial – the addition of a ductless HVAC system could bring you many benefits.
Not only are these systems simple to install, but they’re energy efficient, quiet to operate, and customizable.
For the sake of this article, we’re going to discuss five of the best reasons to install a ductless HVAC system. But rather than talk about direct benefits, we’ll list out the times when it makes sense to give this a closer look.
1. You Live in a Pre-existing Home
If you’re building your home from the ground up, central AC is an option since you have access to everything you need.
Conversely, if you live in a pre-existing home, you don’t have access to the cavities behind walls and under floors. This makes it both difficult and expensive to install the necessary ductwork.
With a ductless HVAC system, this doesn’t come into play. All you need is an outdoor unit and indoor air handlers. There’s no ductwork.
2. Poor Heating and Cooling Ability
Even if you have ductwork that’s supposed to deliver warm and cool air to your home, it doesn’t necessarily mean it’ll work. Over time, ductwork has the potential to cause you trouble, such as by leaking air before it reaches its intended destination.
In this case, forget about repairing your ductwork and opt for a new ductless HVAC system.
3. You’re Finishing a Room or Adding an Addition
Are you adding an addition to make your home bigger? Are you finishing your attic or basement space?
Before you do anything, you must consider how you’ll heat and cool the new space. Adding to your existing ductwork is not only costly, but it’ll result in the interior of your home being torn apart.
With a ductless HVAC system, you can simply add an indoor unit and move on.
4. Large Buildings with Air Flow Issues
Maybe you own a large commercial building. And maybe you’ve come to find that air flow throughout the building is less than ideal, which has resulted in tenants complaining to you.
The installation of a ductless HVAC system can help promote better air flow. And best yet, you don’t have to take on a large interior renovation project to pinpoint the issue and install new ductwork.
5. You Heat Your Home with Oil or Electricity
If you don’t have a gas furnace, you’re probably relying on one that’s powered by electricity or oil. Both of these are “old school” and inefficient systems.
You can quickly put this in the past by opting for a ductless HVAC system that’s designed to operate in a much more efficient (and safer) manner.
If you find yourself dealing with one or more of the circumstances detailed above, take the time to learn more about the benefits of ductless HVAC. We’re here to answer your questions, provide guidance, and install a new system when you’re ready.
