Should You Go Ductless?
Summer heat can bring air conditioning blues if your unit isn’t properly cooling your home. If you think it might be time for an new unit, you have two options, central air and ductless split system. Now for the decision: should you go ductless or keep a traditional central air solution? We’ve mapped out a few reasons why you might opt to go ductless.
Great For Indoor Air Quality
Did you know that the quality of indoor air can actually be lower than the quality of outdoor air? With traditional HVAC systems, air ducts must be professionally cleaned on a regular basis, and even after cleaning, dust and allergens are left behind. Ductless air conditioning, on the other hand, offers multi-stage filtration that can drastically reduce dust, bacteria, pollen, allergens and other particulates in the air.
Higher Efficiency = Lower Utility Bills
The small size of a ductless cooling system and its zoning capabilities allows for greater energy efficiency. Ductless cooling and heating systems follow ENERGY STAR guidelines, which means they are far more energy efficient than the minimum standards set forth by the U.S. federal government. Improved efficiency saves money, of course, but it also helps reduce your total carbon output.
Ductless cooling and heating systems are energy efficient, environmentally friendly, and completely customizable. They offer homeowners the ability to cool and heat specific zones of their home to the exact temperature they desire, providing consistent, and exceptional year-round comfort.
Additionally, ductless systems take advantage of advances in chemistry to reduce effects on the environment. Ductless systems use a refrigerant called R410A, which is known for its zero ozone depletion potential. This means the system will have less impact on the environment throughout its life cycle.
If you’re in the market for a new air conditioning solution for your home, a ductless split system is a great option. Not only does it help combat zoning issues, it can also save you money in the long run thanks to it’s energy efficiency. When you’re ready to take the next step, simply contact the Air Hawk team.
