It’s already hot and humid here in Raleigh, NC, and that weather is not going anywhere any time soon. It’s still early in the cooling season, of course, but you are wise to get your air conditioning installation out of the way sooner, rather than later. After all, it is not only going to continue getting hotter, but AC technicians are only going to get busier as the summer days go on. If you are looking for a new AC for your home, the ductless cooling system is one well worth your serious consideration. These systems have many benefits to offer, including improved energy efficiency over other systems. Consider the information below, and remember to schedule service with Ideal Services Heating & Cooling if you decide that going ductless is right for you.
No Risk of Air Leaks
While air ducts can be very effective means by which to distribute conditioned air throughout a home,they can also be compromised in a number of different ways. When air leaks develop in ductwork, which is not at all uncommon, the energy used to condition air, which the homeowner has already paid for, is wasted. By eliminating the risk of any such air leaks, you also eliminate the risk of reduced energy efficiency resulting from such problems.
Simple Zone Control
Zone control systems can be installed into ducted HVAC systems, of course, but this is an upgrade that you must pay for, and one that is a bit invasive to retrofit a system with. If you opt for a ductless mini split system, though, zone controlled operation is just inherent to the design. The individual blowers used in such systems are controlled independently of the others, meaning that you can set different temperatures in different areas of your home with ease.
Heat Pump Technology
While we’ve been talking about cooling one’s home so far, we must also mention the fact that ductless mini splits must not be designated cooling systems. In fact, they can utilize heat pump technology in order to warm one’s home during the heating season with truly astounding efficiency. They accomplish this by transferring existing heat, concentrated further by the system, into the house. This is ideal for our relatively mild winter weather. Contact us for further details.
