Are you building a new home addition or converting your garage into an extra room? Or maybe you want to create multiple temperature zones within your large home. A ductless HVAC system can include one or several indoor air handlers and an outdoor compressor. It connects via a small conduit, eliminating the need for ductwork. The indoor air handlers heat or cool the air that’s in the different rooms or zones of your St. Louis, Missouri, home. A ductless HVAC system can lower your utility bills, run quietly and make you feel more comfortable. Read on to learn more.
Ductless Systems Lower Utility Bills
Mini-split systems pay for themselves over time through energy savings. You’ll never have to repair energy-wasting leaks in ductwork, and you can use zoning to avoid heating or cooling unoccupied rooms. Just use a separate thermostat for each indoor unit, and control them all with a central programmable thermostat. Ductless systems are much more efficient than window air conditioners and space heaters.
Ductless Systems Operate Quietly
Leaks or debris in ductwork can cause whistling or banging sounds, and you might even hear squeaking or scurrying if pests have infested your ducts. After installing a mini-split system, a professional will either remove your ductwork or seal all your air registers. That way, you won’t have to worry about noisy leaks, debris or pests.
What’s more, mini-split systems are quieter because the indoor units don’t always work at the same time. Since they don’t use as much power, you can use a smaller and quieter outdoor unit as well.
Ductless Systems Improve Comfort
Ductwork can spread contaminants like dust, dirt and pet dander through your home, especially if you forget to change your air filter or have a leak. A ductless system will improve your indoor air quality, preventing allergy symptoms, headaches and other health problems like asthma.
