Installing a new heating and cooling system in your home can be a big investment,
and if you’re struggling with a limited budget, you may be getting
frustrated at the lack of options available to you. If it seems like central
heating and cooling just isn’t in the cards for you, you may actually
benefit greatly from installing a network of
ductless heating and cooling systems!
As their name implies, a ductless HVAC system doesn’t rely on a network
of air ducts to heat or cool your home. Rather, the indoor unit in a ductless
system is all in one self-contained box that’s either placed on
the floor or (more often) mounted on the wall. These indoor units are
connected to a small outdoor unit located just on the other side of the
wall, meaning they take up a surprisingly small amount of space. And perhaps
the best part: unlike central cooling which can cost around $10,000 to
install in the average home, a ductless system costs only a few hundred
dollars to purchase and installation is far cheaper as well.
A central heating and cooling system is a tremendous burden to install.
Not only does it require a bundle of heavy lifting, but you need to have
a network of air ducts installed as well. If you don’t have air
ducts, they’ll have to be run through your house, which can involve
a lot of time, labor, and cost.
Installing a ductless HVAC system is simple: the indoor unit is most often
mounted to your wall with a few specially-designed brackets that attach
with just a couple of screws. Running the refrigerant and electrical lines
to your outdoor unit is remarkably easy as well—you only need to
cut a small hole in your wall that’s sealed off extremely easily.
The entire process takes no more than a few hours to complete.
No Shortage of Features
In the past, people have always thought of ductless systems as noisy, obtrusive
boxes located on their walls that are also kind of a pain to operate.
This may have been true
in the past, but today’s units are substantially more sophisticated and even
boast a lot of the same features you’d find in a state-of-the-art
central heating and cooling system as well!
Most modern units have undergone rigorous engineering to reduce the noise
they make by an exponential margin. In fact, most modern units on the
market are now whisper quiet. In fact, many are so quiet that most people
have little to no trouble falling asleep with it on. Likewise, many of
these systems are also Wi-Fi enabled, allowing you to connect to them
via your home’s internet connection. Wi-Fi connectivity enables
you to control your system or even multiple systems throughout your home
right from an app on your smartphone or tablet. No more getting up and
going to the other room to turn a system on or off or reaching up for
a button to adjust the temperature!
Ductless heating and cooling systems also have another tremendous advantage
over central heating and cooling: they consume a mere fraction of the
energy. While they may not be able to effectively heat or cool any more
than just the room they’re located in, their limited output means
they are far more efficient than a traditional system. And you can use
this to your advantage—if you’re not using a particular room
in your home, turn that heating and cooling system off. By only using
the ones you need, you’ll use less energy but remain more comfortable
in your home!
