You may have heard about a ductless AC or a ductless mini-split but never given it much thought. However, this efficient system has heads turning and with good reason. Here are five benefits of going ductless for your Dunlap, TN, home.
1. Compact and Flexible
The ductless mini-split’s small size makes it a great choice for homes of any size, and the flexible zoning is hard to beat. Each zone has its own thermostat, which means you can make your bedroom warmer than your living room or your kitchen cooler than your game room.
2. Easy to Install
Since a mini-split doesn’t require ductwork, it’s far easier to install. All it needs is a 3-inch hole in the wall, and the outdoor unit can be up to 50 feet away. In addition, it takes a professional HVAC technician far less time to install a ductless system than a traditional HVAC system.
3. Improves Indoor Air Quality
You may find it surprising to know that the EPA says indoor air quality is often two to five times worse than outdoor air. Even if you have your air ducts cleaned, allergens and air pollutants are still left behind. A ductless system has multistage filters that drastically reduce allergens, bacteria and dust.
4. More Efficient
Energy Star states that a traditional ducted HVAC system loses 25% to 40% of its energy due to duct leaks and other factors. With a ductless system, you’ll never need to worry about energy loss from the ductwork.
5. Saves Money
With a more efficient HVAC system, you’ll save money on your utility bills. Saving money on energy bills is one of the biggest reasons homeowners switch to ductless HVAC systems.
If you’re ready to switch to an HVAC system that’s more efficient and saves you money, now is the time to act. Contact Action Heating & Cooling, Inc. today to have our technicians assess your living space for the best way to install your new ductless AC.
