If you do not have air conditioning in your Bunn, NC, home, the summer months are not going to be as enjoyable as they could be. The good news is that you now have a better option to cool your home if it does not have ductwork: a ductless HVAC system. Here are four benefits that a ductless system can give you.
#1. You Do Not Need Ductwork
There is no need to retrofit your home with ductwork when you choose a ductless system. Installing ducts in an older home, especially a smaller one can be difficult, if not impossible, let alone expensive.
#2. Great for Smaller Homes or Rooms
A ductless system is ideal for a smaller home where there is no room to add an air handler that would be needed with a central air system. The inside component of a ductless unit mounts high up on a wall and has a sleek, high-tech appearance. The outside component of the system sits outside on a concrete slab.
#3. Ductless Is More Energy-Efficient
Traditional heating and cooling systems with ductwork are not always so energy-efficient, especially if the ductwork has leaks. When ducts are run through attics or basements that are not insulated, your system could lose up to 30% of its efficiency. Since the air from a ductless system does not need to travel through ductwork, it is much more energy-efficient.
#4. Improvement in Indoor Air Quality
If you already use window air conditioners, a ductless unit could help improve your home’s indoor air quality, for two reasons. It does a better job of controlling humidity in your home, and because the air does not go through ductwork, it is not picking up any dust or allergens that may have settled in the ducts.
