3 Serious Advantages to Opting for a Ductless System in Your Ocala Home

January 20, 2015

advantages of a ductless systemIf you’re upgrading your home’s HVAC system, a ductless mini-split should be on your list for consideration. These systems bring serious advantages for cooling and heating your home.

Energy Efficiency

In a forced-air HVAC system, the heat pump, central A/C or furnace forces air through duct-work under high pressure. A good deal of that air is lost to gaps and openings in the ducts. In older homes, that loss can account for up to 30 percent of HVAC energy consumption. Also, many ductless systems have a SEER rating of 20 or higher. By comparison, window A/C units usually have a SEER of no higher than 11 or 12. Pick an Energy Star rated model for the highest level of efficiency.

Ability to Zone Your Home

How often on a typical day is every room in your home occupied? That means someone in every bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, living room, etc. In most households, that almost never happens. Why are you cooling and heating spaces no one’s occupying? With a ductless system, you can divide your home into zones. You can put the bedrooms on one zone and your living area in another. This allows you to cool and heat each space as needed.

Installation Flexibility

With a mini-split ductless system, you have flexibility for where to install both the indoor and outdoor units. One outdoor unit can hook up to as many as four interior units. Those interior units can be up to 50 feet away from the outdoor unit. This makes it easy to put outdoor units in inconspicuous locations. The inside units can suspend from the ceiling, be integrated with a drop ceiling, or mounted on the wall. This provides the homeowner with maximum interior design options.
