With spring nearly here, many homeowners in Marshville, North Carolina, will start thinking about prepping their air conditioners for the warmer weather. Have you scheduled your AC maintenance appointment yet? There’s no better time than now. Perhaps you’re shopping for a new AC, though. Here’s why you should consider a ductless HVAC system:
Easy to Install
It can take a service technician days or even weeks to install a traditional HVAC system, especially if you need to add ductwork. Since ductless HVAC systems only operate on small pipes, a service technician can install yours in a few hours. Depending on the number of units you need, your system can be up and running the same day.
Saving money is the name of the game for most homeowners. Since they’re smaller than forced-air units, ductless HVAC systems use less power to operate. They blow conditioned air directly into your living spaces, eliminating the risk of losing energy via leaky ductwork. You can also use them to create zones within your home, ensuring you never cool or heat unoccupied rooms. As a result, you’ll consume less energy and save more money on your monthly utility bills.
Improve Air Quality
If you own a traditional forced-air system, you must invest in duct cleaning to maintain healthy indoor air quality. Otherwise, dust and other particles can populate your home. Ductless HVAC systems don’t require ductwork to operate, which helps save on cleaning costs. They also provide multi-stage filtration that helps improve indoor air quality.
Ductless HVAC systems use a refrigerant called R410A — as opposed to the ozone-depleting R22 refrigerant — which is known for its zero ozone depletion potential. As a result, your system will have less impact on the environment.
