Air Conditioning Installation
Duct Free Split Systems
If you have a renovation planned or intend to build a new home, the design process will include making a choice for heating and cooling. Selecting a ductless system can save a lot of money on the budget, and continue to save you money with the reduced costs of energy.
Ductless HVAC Explained Duct free split systems don’t require ductwork for the delivery of heated or cooled air. The ductless system uses separate indoor units in each area for air to be delivered directly to the chosen spaces and provide precise temperatures for each zone. The ductless system has the additional advantage of being almost noise free.
A split system utilizes both indoor and outdoor units. With ductless HVAC, you eliminate the need to circulate the delivery of air throughout the entire home. However, you will have both indoor and outdoor units with a split system for central air conditioning and heating. With ductless technology there are multiple indoor units to each outdoor unit. Ductless technology enables you to take advantage of efficient zone heating and cooling, while providing up to a 23 SEER rating. Many Carrier ductless systems are Energy Star qualified for even greater savings.
How Ductless HVAC Saves Money
With the labor involved, the installation of ducts in a new home or addition drives the cost up, and can potentially be almost as costly as the HVAC equipment itself. Going ductless can significantly reduce your construction costs by eliminating the need for ductwork.
A home’s ducts can cause an energy loss of 20 to 30 percent, or potentially more when damage occurs to ducts. Duct leaks can lead to significant problems with moderating home comfort levels, and they when problems occur with ducts, can elevate energy bills and promote the growth of mold, a serious health issue. Ductless HVAC equipment saves a lot of money because of the elimination of energy loss through ducts.
Zone heating and cooling allows individual comfort needs to be controlled without the entire home being heating or cooled to the same temperature. Those rooms that are seldom used need minimal temperature moderation, allowing you to limit your energy use only to those spaces being used. Because you can direct energy use to only those spaces in use, you are able to precisely control areas independent of each other and save money by not using equal energy in unused areas. Ductless systems are among the most energy efficient heating and air conditioning systems available today. They keep on saving you money even after the initial costs are recouped.
An additional advantage to a ductless system is the reduction in airborne pathogens and pollutants that are typically circulated within a duct system. A ductless system doesn’t circulate air throughout the house and without the continual recirculation of germs and dust family members can stay healthier.
