Ductless Heating and Cooling Systems: A Great Alternative

Ductless Heating and Cooling Systems: A Great Alternative

Do you have room additions in your home that are hard to heat and cool efficiently? Do you have complicated ductwork in your home, or are you ready to install a new HVAC unit? An alternative to the traditional duct system, the ductless system may be right for you.

Ductless heating and cooling systems are:

  • Flexible: They can be installed in single or multi family homes; units can be installed near the floor, in the ceiling, or even mounted high on walls. A ductless heat pump can be installed in a single room that’s difficult to climate-control, or throughout an entire home. Single units can even be installed to climate control different areas of the home in different ways: for example, to cool down a hot kitchen and warm up a spare bedroom! Finally, ductless systems have the ability to operate at multiple speeds and can be tailored to the individual needs of the room, unlike traditional duct systems, which operate at one speed for all rooms.
  • Energy Efficient: Ductless heating and cooling can be the perfect energy-saving solution for those areas of the home that are difficult to heat and cool. Some units qualify for utility rebates from local power companies. You can read more about energy efficiency, utility bill savings, and ductless systems from the Bonneville Power Administration here.

Depending on the floor plan and ductwork of your home, ductless systems can offer short and long-term savings as well as increased indoor air quality and comfort. Like traditional HVAC systems, they will need servicing from a professional technician once every 1-3 years, and regular air filter cleanings.
