Without a good HVAC system, hot and muggy days can make indoor living in Beaufort, South Carolina, unbearable. Seasonal allergies also take their toll on residents when the flowers and ragweed begin to bloom. Fortunately, a ductless HVAC system can handle the temperature and humidity in your home while minimizing allergy levels. Here are the top three reasons to install a ductless HVAC system in your home:
Installation is Quick and Easy
As its name suggests, a ductless HVAC system doesn’t require any ductwork. While a traditional HVAC system uses a network of ducts to distribute air throughout your home, a ductless HVAC uses a simpler method of air distribution. An outdoor compressor connects directly to a heat pump or air conditioning unit on an interior wall. Ductless HVAC systems are designed to provide targeted climate control to a specific area of a home.
Energy Savings Are Significant
HVAC systems that use ducts are known for their energy losses. Insulation, seals,and vents are necessary to minimize air leaks throughout the duct. Unfortunately, energy losses due to air leaks are inevitable. On average, a home’s traditional HVAC system loses 20 to 40 percent of the air circulating through the ducts.
Ductless HVAC systems avoid this problem of air leakage because they don’t require ducts. They also save energy by using compressors that adapt to the heating or cooling demands of each room.
Air Quality Will Improve
Allergens, dust and contaminants accumulate in ducts over time. Even if you clean your ducts at the recommended three-year intervals, microbial growth and fine particles can build up in hard-to-reach places.
By choosing a ductless HVAC system, you can eliminate the opportunity for allergens to accumulate in ductwork. A mini-split HVAC filter can protect your home from:
- Microbial growth
- Dust mites
A ductless HVAC system may be the right option for anyone who’s looking for a cost-effective way to heat or cool their home. Energy savings make this climate control system a suitable option for homes in Beaufort. Contact Coastal Air Technologies, Inc. at (803) 914-0900 to learn more.
