Heating and cooling your Annapolis, Maryland, home can get expensive. Although central air conditioners and furnaces are the most traditional options, they’re not the only choices. A ductless HVAC unit could be a better option to lower your bills while keeping you comfortable.
A ductless HVAC system, also called a mini-split, comprises two main components. The first part is an indoor unit, which is usually installed on the wall or ceiling in the zone where it’ll provide heated and cooled air. This unit connects to the second component, the condensing unit, which sits outside. In larger homes, you can have multiple indoor units to create different temperature zones.
Since ductless HVAC units install in specific zones, you have more control over the temperature in each area of your home. If you don’t want to spend the money to run the heater or air conditioner in a room you don’t typically use, a ductless unit gives you that control. As a result, you can set each specific zone to the ideal temperature rather than having to heat or cool the entire space.
Ductless HVAC units are also more efficient than traditional heating and cooling systems. They don’t rely on ductwork to move air. That means you don’t have to worry about air loss through gaps and inefficiencies in the ducts. Additionally, most ductless models feature inverter-style compressors. As a result, they can slow down and speed up based on the system needs rather than having to shut down and start back up frequently.
Enhanced Air Quality
The quality of the air you breathe also impacts your comfort. Dirty, polluted air can cause unpleasant health side effects, including coughing and congestion. Eliminating the ducts in your system can keep your air cleaner and healthier.
