Ductless air conditioners and heat pumps can help you lower your utility bills and keep your family comfortable. They can also help you prevent health problems and keep the indoor air quality in your Northbrook, Illinois, home high. Ductless HVAC systems are more efficient than conventional units, because they provide zoning capabilities, eliminate ductwork problems and they’re easy to maintain.
Ductless HVAC Provides Zoning Capabilities
Ductless HVAC systems, also called mini-split or multi-split systems, usually have more than one indoor air handling unit that connects to an outdoor condenser or compressor. That means you can set different temperatures for different areas or zones in your home, saving energy and increasing your family’s comfort. With a ductless system, there’s no need to use extra power to heat or cool unoccupied rooms.
Ductless HVAC Eliminates Ductwork Problems
Since ductless systems don’t have ductwork, you’ll never have to worry about leaks or gaps in your ducts that could waste energy. You won’t ever have to get your ductwork cleaned or sealed, and contaminants in your ducts will never reduce your home’s indoor air quality.
Ductless HVAC is Easy to Maintain
Ductless systems are more expensive than most conventional units, but they’re also more efficient and easier to maintain. Many people spend less over time with a ductless system than they would with a similar conventional HVAC unit.
Since ductless systems have fewer parts, they’re more reliable than many other heaters and air conditioners. However, you should still change your system’s air filter at least every three months.
Remember to also make sure that a professional inspects your ductless system at least once per year. Keep dirt, dust, grass clippings and other debris away from your outdoor HVAC unit.
