Surprising Benefits of Ductless HVAC Systems

Surprising Benefits of Ductless HVAC Systems

If you are thinking of upgrading your current HVAC system or installing a unit into a new home, you should definitely consider a ductless system. A ductless HVAC system comes with a long list of benefits, starting with cost-effectiveness.

Ductless systems are some the most economical on the market. They are less expensive than ducted systems to purchase, install, maintain and use. A recent comparison between installation costs of a new ductless system and a centralized ducted HVAC showed the ductless system would cost less than $4,000 to installation in the same 1,800-square-foot home where a centralized system cost more than $5,000 for its installation.

Other Benefits You Can Get from a Ductless System

If the lower installation cost does not sway you into opting for a ductless system, here are a few other benefits that might convince you:

  • Lower energy consumption – With its zoned heating and cooling approach, a ductless system allows you to choose which parts of your home you heat and cool, and which parts you do not. In a ducted system, you always heat and cool every room, which is more expensive. This equates to lower energy consumption for a ductless system and lower utility bills for you.
  • Easier to install – If you are installing a new system in your home, a ducted one will definitely be more difficult and more expensive to install than a ductless one. You won’t need to install ductwork in the ceiling or under the floor in your crawlspace for a ductless unit. You also won’t need to wait days for the installation to be complete. With a ductless system, depending on the size of your home, installation can take as little as a few hours during a single day.
  • Quieter operation – Window air-conditioners are very noisy. Ducted HVACs spread the noise of the big fans throughout your home via your vents. A ductless system is very quiet because the exterior unit can be moved as far away from the interior units as you like to ensure quiet operation.

These are just some of the benefits you can expect when you opt for a ductless HVAC system.
