Is your Columbus, Georgia home in a constant war on the thermostat? Do your family members constantly disagree as to what is a comfortable temperature? End the battle and keep everyone in your household comfortable by installing a ductless system in your home.
What Is a Ductless System?
A ductless system is an easy-to-install, flexible system that allows the delivery of heated and conditioned air to the various rooms in your home, without having to travel through ductwork. An outdoor unit connects with a network of tubing in the wall to indoor units that can be individually temperature controlled. Units are typically installed high on a wall where it is controlled by a remote. The system can be designed to control up to five individual units.
When Is it a Good Time to Install a Ductless System?
Ductless systems can be great for new builds, when adding an addition to your home or for hot and cold rooms in your home that your current system can’t seem to reach. They can also be good when installing a system in a home that does not have existing ductwork.
Benefits of a Ductless System
Choosing a ductless system includes many benefits, along with improved comfort. Some of the benefits you can enjoy when you install a new ductless system include:
More Flexible Solutions
When a ductless system is installed, there will be more flexibility when it comes to installation and creating specific temperature zones in your house. A system that requires ductwork, will require that the duct system be designed to promote proper air flow. This can mean having vents where they are less convenient for the design of your room and having to move furniture to provide enough space around the vent to prevent restriction. You will also have the flexibility to create specific zones where individual temperatures can be maintained by installing indoor units in those areas.
Another benefit of installing a ductless system is saving money on your monthly utility bills. With a more traditional heating system, you will set one temperature for your home to stay at and your system will work as hard as it needs to maintain that temperature. This means that you will be sending heated and conditioned air to areas of the home that may be used less frequently.
Additionally, as ductwork ages, it can develop cracks and leaks which can cause the air needed to control the temperature in the rooms to leak out before arriving. This causes your system to have to work significantly harder to get the room to the set temperature. The harder that your system has to work the less efficient it is, expending more energy than needed to get the desired results.
With a ductless system, you will only be using energy to heat and cool the rooms where it is needed, meaning that less energy will be wasted and you will spend less on your heating and cooling each month. You may also qualify for tax credits or utility rebates when you originally install your system.
Improved Indoor Air Quality
A ductless system can also improve the comfort of your home by improving indoor air quality. Traditional ductwork can develop a build up of dirt, dust, pet dander, pollen, and other allergens, that are then circulated throughout your home, triggering asthma and allergy symptoms. When your home has improved air quality, everyone can breathe a little easier, and you will help reduce the risk of respiratory illness for those in your household.
A Lower Carbon Footprint
With the zoning capability of a ductless system, you will experience greater energy efficiency and a lower overall carbon footprint. Ductless systems follow the federal ENERGY STAR guides, which means that they have greater efficiency than the minimum standards that the government has set. Additionally, ductless systems use R410A refrigerant which is known to have zero ozone depletion potential which means it will have less impact on the environment.
Allow each of your family members to have control over the temperature in their chosen area of your home with a ductless system and end the war on the thermostat once and for all. Contact Indoor Solutions at 706-225-8241 today to schedule your ductless system installation.
