A Few Reasons You Should Go Ductless

There are so many reasons why you should go ductless here in Florida. We’ve listed a few of the most compelling ones below.

1.      You Want Greater Control

Ductless air conditioning is a great way to “zone” your home without going through the extensive, expensive, and inconvenient process of retrofitting a zone control system into your home. Not familiar with what a zone control system is? Well, a zone control system installs a series of dampers in your ductwork effectively splitting your home into different “zones.” These zones each have their own thermostat and can be controlled separately from each other or all together.

A ductless mini split system can help you get this same effect in your home without using your ductwork. Ductless systems use individual, autonomous air handlers mounted to the walls in high priority rooms throughout your home. If you have rooms that are particularly stuffy you can install an air handler here and eliminate those issues.

2.      You Want Lower Bills

Ductless mini splits are incredibly energy efficient. The small size of a ductless cooling system and its added zoning capabilities allow for higher levels of energy efficiency. Improved energy efficiency directly relates to the cost of your heating and cooling as well. In addition to this, ductless systems allow you to cool your home just where you need to. When you want to cool your home with a standard central air conditioner you have to cool it everywhere. When you get a ductless system you can just cool off one room at a time. If you’d like to decrease the size of your carbon footprint and lower your energy bill it’s time for you to contact our professionals to learn more about how these systems affect your home.

3.      You Need Flexibility

Ductless systems are heat pumps. This means that your ductless mini split can both heat and cool your home from this one system. Heat pumps are constructed a lot like air conditioners on the inside. What separates them from an air conditioner is their reversing valve which allows your mini split to reverse the output of power and heat your home in the winter.
