A ductless or mini-split HVAC system has an outdoor unit and one or more indoor air-handling units connected by a conduit just a few inches wide. The energy a ductless system can help you to save makes it worth the investment. It can even improve your indoor air quality and increase the value of your Saint Augustine, Florida, home. A ductless air conditioning system can help you save money with easy installation, zoning benefits, and reduced energy consumption.
A ductless system usually takes one or two days to install, and most central heating or air conditioning systems with ductwork take more than a week. Since most parts of a ductless system are assembled at the factory, problems that result from faulty installation like wasted energy or lack of comfort are unlikely. Ductwork must be custom made in some homes, and can take up valuable storage space in attics, basements, or closets.
If you choose a ductless HVAC system that has more than one indoor unit, you can set different temperatures for different areas or zones in your home. The indoor units have separate thermostats, and you can control each unit independently, particularly as the units have their own remote controls. Zoning allows you to avoid heating or cooling empty rooms so you can direct air conditioning where it is needed and keep your family more comfortable.
Without ductwork, you won’t have to worry about leaks or gaps in insulation that waste energy and cause warm areas or drafts. Dirt, dust, mold, pollen, pet dander, and other contaminants can’t get into your HVAC system as easily, so your indoor air quality will be higher, and you won’t have to pay for as many repairs.
