Ductless Technology 101
Do you have a room in your house that no matter what you do, it’s just not comfortable? Do you freeze in your downstairs family room or find it difficult to sleep because it’s so hot in your upstairs bedroom? If so, you may find ductless technology can solve your problems. If you’ve always wondered what ductless technology is and how it helps homeowners regulate indoor temperatures as well as save on energy bills, here’s clarification for you!
Ductless technology is widely used in areas of the world where space is a hot commodity such as Asia and Europe. Ductless systems are rapidly gaining popularity in the United States as homeowners and businesses look for cost-effective alternatives. Ductless technology can be used for air conditioners as well as ductless heat pumps and are extremely useful in existing homes that cannot accommodate ductwork.
How does the technology work?
Ductless systems are ideal for wall and ceiling heating units as well as a solution for inefficient heating and cooling systems in existing homes where additional ductwork is too expensive or space prohibitive. New home designs are also taking advantage of ductless technology and its many benefits.
Ductless technology uses two-way heat pumps that transfer heat between outdoor and indoor air by compressing and expanding refrigerant. The variable speed compressors continuously match the heating or cooling load, avoiding the energy-draining on and off cycle of traditional systems as well as the uncomfortable temperature fluctuations.
What are the advantages?
Ductless technology offers a heating and cooling solution that can solve your space issues and lower your energy bills; these systems are safe, durable and quiet. Additionally, they heat (and cool) rooms evenly at a fraction of the cost of baseboard, wall and ceiling heat. Ductless systems can be easily installed by an HVAC professional in a short time frame, can reduce your electric heating costs by an estimated 25-50 percent and will keep every room of your home comfortable all year long.
