Ductless HVAC  Benefits

Are you thinking of installing or replacing a new HVAC system in your home? If so you may want to determine whether to install a ductless HVAC system or a traditional HVAC system. Although this might seem like a fairly straightforward answer for some homeowners; it does warrant careful consideration. We’ve come up with a few scenarios where choosing a ductless system might be the best option for your Southeastern US home.

If You Don’t Have Existing Ductwork

If you are installing a new HVAC system and do not already have existing ductwork; then a ductless system will be less expensive and require less construction. Ductless systems require a small hole to be drilled in your wall. Whereas central systems require extensive ductwork to be installed throughout your home.

Is Ductless HVAC Energy Efficiency Important to You?

Depending on your home, and the ductless system you invest in; a ductless HVAC unit can be much more energy efficient than a traditional HVAC system. As far as energy efficiency goes, the best HVAC units on the market cannot compete with the best ductless units available.

Do You Have Sensitive Ears?

If you have any issues with the noise produced by central heating and air systems, then you might consider purchasing a ductless unit. Ductless systems are much quieter than traditional HVAC units.

If You Have a Small Home

If your home is less than 2,000 square feet, then a mini split unit might be the most cost-effective option for your home. These units work best in smaller spaces.

Do You Need Zoning Capability?

If your heart is set on having zone control in your home, ductless units will generally be cheaper to install since you won’t have to make significant upgrades to ductwork.

Do You Want Heating and Cooling Options?
