All Your Ductless Questions Answered
Are you curious about ductless systems? If so, you’ve come to the right place! We’ve gathered together some frequently asked questions about ductless systems for your perusal. Enjoy!
What is a ductless system?
Just like the name implies, it’s a heating and cooling system without the need for ducts. It’s ideal if you want an efficient heating/cooling system and you don’t want the expense or hassle of installing or extending ductwork, or for homes where ducts simply aren’t practical or feasible.
How does a ductless system work?
There are two units in a ductless system – one on the outside and one on the inside. The inside unit is mounted on the wall and is controlled by a remote. The outside system provides the heat or cooling, as needed.
What are the zoning advantages of a ductless system?
With most central heating and cooling units, if you turn on the system, it heat or cools every room in the house – even when you’re not in them. A ductless system heats or cools whichever room you’re in, and can be turned off when you leave that room, leading to significant cost savings.
Are ductless systems difficult to install?
Compared to the difficulty involved in extending existing ductwork or installing new ductwork, no. It’s a relatively straightforward and simple install that can be completed pretty quickly.
How quiet are ductless systems?
In a word, very. Any appreciable noise will come from the outside unit, and since you’ll have the windows closed to keep your cool air (or heat) in, you’ll hardly hear a thing.
Can I install my own ductless system?
Possibly, but like many heating and air conditioning projects, this is a job much better left to the professionals. If there are any snags along the way, a professional HVAC technician will know how to handle them.
