It’s the future of home heating and cooling. Instead of a central heating and cooling system, where hot and cold air are created from a single point and then distributed through an entire house, ductless air conditioning and heating allows a homeowner to cool or heat just the rooms they need heated or cooled – not the entire house. Just think of the energy savings and dramatically lower power bills, not to mention the positive impact on the environment, by being able to heat or cool just one or several areas of your home. Here are some myths you need to know about ductless air conditioning and heating.
Myth #1 – Ductless air conditioning and heating system produce uneven cooling and heating.
Truth – Professionally installed ductless systems evenly distribute cold and hot air throughout their zones. The wall-mounted units have the power to quietly disperse cool or hot air evenly for an enjoyable comfort level. When properly installed, the zones overlap. It must be mentioned that the wall-mounted units also operate at a very quiet noise level.
Myth #2 – Ductless air conditioning and heating system create bad air quality.
Truth – Ductless systems produce cleaner air than central air system due to a multi-filtration process built into the wall units. This actually purifies air. The units use cloth filters that homeowner can clean with soap and water.
Myth #3 – It cost more money to install a ductless air conditioning and heating system, as well has have AC repair service.
Truth – Ductless air conditioning and heating systems are easy to install, which means less cost for labor. A typically single-family home can have installation completed in 1-2 days. Running ductwork and installing the components of a central air system can take 1-2 weeks.
Myth #4 – Ductless systems can only be installed in new homes under construction, not existing homes.
Truth – Ductless air conditioning and heating systems can be installed in both existing homes and homes under construction. When a homeowner is upgrading their existing heating and cooling system, they can opt to go with similar equipment and install a new furnace and air conditioning system. Or they can make the switch to a ductless system with several zones spread through the existing house. If putting on an addition to your home, a ductless system allows you to add heating and cooling without connecting to the existing ductwork from the older portions of the house. You can simply add a ductless system for heating and cooling.
Ductless Air Conditioning and Heating
Ductless air conditioning and heating consists of small rectangle units that mount on walls in several rooms of a house to create different cooling and heating zones. The advantage is you don’t need to go to the expense of running a network of ductwork through a house extending to each room. Ductless air conditioning and heating units are small and require less power to operate saving a homeowner money on their monthly power bills. Also, with no ductwork a homeowner will not need to pay for ductwork to be cleaned every few years by a company specializing in AC repair in Lawrenceville, GA.
