Choosing the right HVAC system for your Pine Bluff, Arkansas, home is key to maintaining comfort and improving energy efficiency. When thinking about HVAC options, make sure you consider all that a ductless system has to offer.
What is a Ductless System?
A ductless system consists of an outdoor unit that connects to one or more indoor units via a narrow tube. The conduit contains the power cable and the refrigerant tubing. These units, as the name indicates, do not use ducts. Since you can install one or multiple indoor units, each area or zone can have its own temperature settings.
Benefits of a Ductless System
There are many benefits that come with installing a ductless system in your home. Some of these advantages include:
Better Indoor Air Quality
Heat pumps and traditional furnaces force air through the ductwork and deliver it via vents to rooms in your home. A ductless system, on the other hand, provides HVAC comfort only where needed. As a result, you will use less energy. Unlike a central HVAC system, you won’t waste energy heating rooms you don’t use.
Since you directly heat or cool the rooms that need it most, you will notice significant savings on your utility bills. Ductless mini-split systems also use less energy because they transfer rather than generate heat. They also have highly-efficient compressors and fans for cooling. You’ll also avoid the problem of energy waste because of leaky ductwork.
Since the system does not require any ductwork, you avoid several IAQ problems. You won’t have to worry about dirt, debris, and dander building up and circulating through the vents. This helps to keep your air cleaner and reduce the impact of allergens.
You can also benefit from tax credits when you upgrade to an energy-efficient ductless system. Want to learn more about how a ductless system can improve heating and cooling efficiency? Contact Pine Bluff Heating & Air at 870-275-4006 today to find out more.
