If you’re tired of spending a fortune on monthly utility bills at your home in Toano, Virginia, now’s the time to transition to a ductless HVAC system. Ductless systems provide many benefits to homeowners, one of which is greater efficiency.
Air tends to leak from ducts as it moves through the duct system to your home’s vents. In fact, you can lose up to 30 percent of the energy meant to heat and cool your home. Without those gaps, you could reduce energy waste and lower your bills.
A ductless system also uses smaller air handlers, which send cooled air directly into your home’s rooms instead of through the AC and ducts. You can manually turn off specific air handlers within the rooms, providing you extra savings when you don’t heat or cool an unoccupied room. When you live in a large home, this can save a lot of money.
Some mini-split ductless HVAC systems come with remote controls, making it easier to manually adjust the temperature in a specific room. You can also opt for a system with a sleep mode setting and a timer, eliminating the need to manually adjust the thermostat when you go to bed or leave for the day.
When a central air conditioner runs, it pushes air through a filter to prevent dirt, dust and other debris from getting into the ducts. When the filter becomes dirty, the ducts fill with those contaminants. The system then has to work harder to produce the same amount of air. With a ductless system, you’ll notice a substantial decrease in energy bills because you limit that waste.
