What Are the Advantages of a Ductless HVAC System?

Not every HVAC system needs ductwork to operate. It turns out that heating, ventilation, and air conditioning appliances that don’t use air ducts help you avoid certain problems. You save money, reduce your carbon footprint, and bring up your indoor air quality. Read on for more on the advantages of going ductless.

Save Money

Part of the problem with heaters and air conditioners that use air ducts is that they’re not optimally efficient. The less efficient your HVAC systems are, the more money you’ll pay in energy bills. Most people don’t even realize that their heating and cooling systems make up the bulk of their energy bills, so they don’t know that they could be saving a great deal of money. A ductless HVAC system is more efficient than one that uses air ducts because the air goes directly into the space without having to travel through a labyrinth of ductwork.

Protect the Environment

Saving energy means more than saving money—it also means saving the environment. A ductless HVAC system will make your space more comfortable with much smaller energy requirements than an HVAC system that uses ducts. Even the refrigerant used in ductless HVAC systems is more environmentally friendly. In addition, the added energy efficiency will allow your heating and cooling appliances to last longer, so you won’t have to replace them for a while.

Improve Indoor Air Quality

Air ducts tend to harbor dust, mold spores, and even pests. Then the air that circulates through the vents picks up contaminants and spreads them around the house. This isn’t an issue with ductless HVAC systems, so you can look forward to higher quality indoor air.
