When it comes to heating and cooling solutions for your home, how satisfied are you with your current situation? Do you find yourself with uneven temperatures, air leaks, and a system that can’t keep up with your current demands? Perhaps ductless heating and cooling systems are the answer that you’re looking for.

How Ductless HVAC Systems Work

Ductless heating and cooling systems consist of wall-mounted indoor units combined with an outside compressor. Unlike window units, a ductless wall unit requires a very small hole to be drilled into a wall, making your rooms less vulnerable to air leaks and security issues.

Ductless systems are largely energy efficient. With an average ductwork system, you can lose up to 25 percent of your energy efficiency on ductwork and potential obstructions. Ductless systems have inverter-driven compressors that allow you to speed up and slow down cooling based on your household needs.

Potential Drawbacks Of A Ductless System

There are a few drawbacks to operating a ductless system that homeowners should know about when choosing an air conditioning system for their home. Installation for a ductless system can be quite costly, up to thousands of dollars vs. hundreds for options such as window and baseboard units. The system will eventually pay for itself with the energy costs you’ll save on a monthly basis, but you’ll need to plan and budget for installation to see these savings.

Monthly maintenance and cleaning of the wall units are necessary to keep them working as intended. A ductless fan cannot handle excess debris; servicing your unit on a regular basis is the key to keeping it running efficiently and avoiding more expensive repair bills.
