A ductless or mini-split HVAC system uses one or more indoor air handlers attached to an outdoor unit. These versatile devices are less costly than traditional units, and they can help you increase the value of your house. Read on to learn three of the major benefits of installing a ductless system in your Southlake, Texas home.
With a ductless system, you won’t need to spend money or time having ductwork designed or installed for your house. This makes it ideal for a renovation, an addition, or even a new guest house or garage. You can keep your current HVAC system and add a ductless device in the new part of your home, so that area receives AC and heat without being connected to the ducts in the other part of the house. Ductless indoor air handlers can hang on your walls or ceilings, and they come in a variety of sizes, colors, and styles. With a programmable thermostat, you can control ductless and conventional systems from a central location or from your computer, smartphone, or tablet.
Ductless systems don’t use as much power as other HVAC systems because they don’t need to send conditioned air through ducts. You won’t lose valuable electricity to leaks or poor insulation in your home’s ducts, and you’ll only be paying to heat and cool rooms that you choose. Some ductless units have variable-speed fans, as well, which means they can adjust their speeds automatically for better efficiency (and therefore, lower utility bills).
Ductless systems with more than one indoor unit can use zoning. This lets you and your family members choose the temperature you prefer for bedrooms and other areas, without making anyone else too hot or cold. Each indoor unit has its own air filter, so bad smells and contaminants won’t spread easily through your home.
