A ductless system can help you improve the indoor air quality, comfort, and efficiency of your Palm Harbor, Florida, home. A ductless mini-split HVAC system has one or more indoor air handling units and an outdoor compressor or condenser. A small conduit transfers refrigerant between them, so no ductwork is needed. They’re easy to install, and they’re ideal for older homes that don’t have the space available to add ductwork or new additions.
Better Indoor Air Quality
Many ductless systems have multi-stage filtration systems that can help you remove pollutants like dust, dirt, pollen, pet dander, and bacteria from your home’s air. Contaminants won’t build up in ductwork, and they won’t spread from room to room as easily. That way, anyone in your home with respiratory issues can avoid asthma attacks, allergy symptoms, rashes, headaches, and many other health problems.
If your ductless system has multiple indoor units, you can use zoning to set different temperatures for separate indoor units and areas of your home. Everyone can choose the temperature that’s most comfortable for them in the area or zone they use most. Every indoor unit has its own thermostat, and you can control them with a programmable thermostat. Some have remotes, and you can control others from your computer or smartphone.
Ductless HVAC systems are initially more expensive than most conventional heaters or air conditioners. They’re also more efficient because you won’t have to heat or cool unoccupied rooms and you’ll never lose conditioned air through leaks or poor insulation in ductwork. You can make up for the additional cost of a ductless system and save even more through lower utility bills. Many ductless HVAC systems are eligible for government rebates and tax refunds that make them more affordable, and they can increase the value of your home.
