Choosing the best HVAC system to keep your Neptune Beach, Florida, home cool throughout the summer months is an important decision. There are many things to consider, including the amount of space you have, what you’re looking for in terms of efficiency, and what size will be appropriate for the square footage and design of your home. For many homeowners, ductless systems are the best options to meet their needs and improve the comfort of their homes. Check out some of the benefits you can expect with a ductless HVAC system.
Lower Energy Costs
With a traditional HVAC system, conditioned air will flow through a system of ducts before it cools or heats the home. This means it’ll spend extra energy to send air to rooms that you may not use often.
With a ductless HVAC system, you can create zones in your home where you can set individual temperature levels. This means you’ll only cool or heat the rooms you use when you’re using them. As a result, you’ll use less energy and pay lower utility bills.
Ductless HVAC systems also save you money because they’re smaller and require less power to operate. You may even be able to take advantage of eligible tax credits at the end of the year, reducing your tax liability for installing a more energy-efficient system.
Ductless systems comprise an outdoor unit and indoor units that connect through small piping in the walls. This means you won’t need to cut into the ceilings, walls or crawlspaces of your home to install ductwork, which can upset the architectural value of your home. Most systems only require a small hole of around three inches to connect the two units together.
The compact design also allows you to utilize the space in your home more efficiently. You won’t need to design the flow of your furniture around registers and vents. The indoor units are small, and you can easily place them out of the way so they don’t interrupt your decor.
No More Dirty Ducts
One of the main culprits behind bad indoor air quality in many homes is the ductwork. Over time, dirt, pollen and debris can build up in the ductwork. They can then flow out into your home’s air supply. This can lead to respiratory problems, an increase in allergy symptoms and worsening asthma.
With a ductless HVAC system, you can leave allergies behind. There’s no ductwork, and they offer a multi-stage filtration system that significantly reduces the amount of dander, dust and pollen that’ll get into your indoor air. As a result, you’ll be able to also cut the duct cleaning fees.
Easy to Install
Installing a traditional ducted system in your home can take weeks. It’ll also disrupt your daily household activities. A ductless HVAC system is much less invasive to install. A professional can do it in as little as one or two days, depending on the number of indoor and outdoor units that you require. Once they complete the installation, there will be little cleanup and no walls or ceilings to repair.
Adaptable to Other Technologies
Many ductless systems come with a number of technology upgrades. This includes features such as dehumidification modes and timers. It also includes Wi-Fi capabilities that can allow you to control and monitor your system from your smartphone or voice assistant.
Lower Your Carbon Footprint
The smaller size of a ductless system and its capabilities for zoning allow it to have greater energy efficiency than most systems. All ductless systems follow ENERGY STAR guidelines, which lets buyers know they’re far more efficient than the minimum standards the federal government sets forth. Installing a ductless system can help you significantly lower the overall carbon footprint of your home.
