Advantages of Ductless HVAC Systems
Keeping your home a comfortable temperature year-round can be somewhat stressful. The weather in Chicago seems to change unpredictably, and you always want your space to be comfortable. One minute you need an air conditioner repair in Niles, and the next, you’re pulling out a jacket to stay warm.
Ductless HVAC systems, also referred to as mini-split systems, are an increasingly popular way to heat and cool both residential and commercial spaces. These systems usually consist of an indoor unit that is mounted on the wall as well as a compressor that is located outside of the home or place of business.
Pros of Ductless Systems
Ductless systems only require a small hole to be drilled into the wall, which makes them less susceptible to common issues like air leakage and security problems. They are also less visible and less audible, so they make a more discrete way to heat and cool your home.
Energy efficiency is something many people look for when it comes to HVAC units, as it usually lowers the monthly cost of heating and cooling. If you are using a system that has ducts, on average, you are losing at least 25 percent of the energy that is being cultivated. Getting rid of the ducts eliminates the inefficiency. Inverter-driven compressors are another benefit of ductless systems, as they will speed up or slow down based on what the system needs as opposed to shutting off the system entirely. You’d be surprised how much energy is lost when you start or stop your compressor.
Ideal Homes for Ductless Systems
Certain homes are better-equipped for ductless systems than others. New home additions such as a garage, apartment, bonus room or sunroom are ideal for ductless systems because they will only use the necessary energy to heat or cool the particular addition without taking air from other rooms. If your family prefers different temperatures in different rooms, ductless systems provide the opportunity to control the temperature in separate rooms. On a similar note, this system can shut off HVAC grilles in rooms that they don’t often use, which in return cuts down on the energy bill.
