If you’re in the market for a new HVAC system for your home in Northbrook, Illinois, now is the time to consider going ductless. Installing a ductless system now will save you money on your bills this summer and catch your contractor during their low season.
Get the Contractor in the Low Season
The busiest time for contractors is during the height of winter and summer because that is when systems tend to break down suddenly. If you’re in the market for a new system, then now is the time to start talking to your HVAC contractor. Take the time now to figure out what system would be best and if ductless is a good option for you. Your contractor won’t be as rushed since it tends to be a slower season. Once you know, you can schedule your upgrade during the early spring and have your new system in place just in time for the heat of summer.
Weigh Your Choices
A ductless system is a good choice for many people, but it’s not for everyone. During late winter and spring, your HVAC system gets a little break. If you start weighing your options and researching systems now, you give yourself the time to make an informed decision on what is best for your home. If you decide to upgrade your system in the middle of the winter or the summer, your perception might be affected by making a snap decision to combat the weather.
Enjoy Zone Air Conditioning this Summer
One of the perks of a ductless system is the ability to control your home by zones. With zone control, you don’t have to cool your entire home equally, especially if there are rooms that you don’t use as much. If the sun hits one room during the day, you can cool off that room more instead of turning down your entire thermostat. If you go ductless now, you can enjoy these perks all summer.
Traditional HVAC systems are bulky. Window units are also bulky, aren’t aesthetically pleasing, and offer easier opportunities for break-ins. If space is a concern, then investing in a ductless system will help with that. Ductless systems take up very little space in your home, and you don’t have to worry about a bulky system outside or in your basement. Ductless systems have also gotten more attractive and are hardly noticeable in many homes.
Experience Utility Savings Today
The sooner you upgrade to a ductless system, the faster you’ll see the savings on your utility bills. Ductless systems allow you to control the temperature in various rooms, which means you don’t waste money heating and cooling rooms that you don’t use often. As the name suggests, ductless systems don’t use ducts, which are perpetrators of wasted energy in your home when they aren’t correctly sealed.
Cancel Noise Pollution
Although central air and heating systems have their perks, noise is not one of them. Cancel out the noise pollution in your home by investing in a ductless system. Traditional HVAC systems like central air and furnaces make a lot of noise. The furnace turns on and off while it’s heating your home. Sometimes you can hear whistling in your ducts. If you’re a light sleeper, work from home, or just get annoyed easily, then you can cut out the inconvenience by switching to a ductless system.
Improve Your Indoor Air Quality
The ducts are a major contributor to poor indoor air quality. Dander, hair, bugs, and other pollutants sometimes get through your air filter and wind up in your ducts. All the air in your home goes through those pollutants or blows them into your home. With a ductless system, you don’t have to worry about getting your ducts cleaned regularly or your air blowing through those contaminants. It’s easy to change the filter on your ductless system, improving the IAQ in your home.
