Some of the frequently asked questions about ductwork services include:
What is a ductless HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) system?
Ductless HVAC systems, also called “ductless mini-splits” or “ductless heat pumps,” have an indoor air system of air delivery units, usually mounted in “zones” or rooms of your home, and an outdoor compressor. They are cleaner and provide a low-cost alternative to traditional HVAC systems.
Are ductless air conditioners any good?
Ductless AC systems perform better and deliver cleaner cooling for less cost. The initial investment is more than a central air conditioning system, but the long-term savings are great.
Are ductless mini-splits worth it?
Ductwork energy loss accounts for more than 30% of your heating and cooling costs. Your upfront costs will be higher for a ductless system, but your ROI (return on investment) justifies the expense. Your property value will increase and your monthly energy costs will decrease.
Advantages to ductless mini-splits include:
Control – You can heat or cool one room or every room. This is perfect for homes with too-hot and too-cold people living together!
Easier installation – No need to configure ductwork; installation (usually) requires drilling just one hole and can be completed in one day.*
Energy efficiency – Fewer leaks and much less energy loss will save you money and reduce your carbon footprint.
Improved IAQ – You will eliminate the airborne contaminants that get trapped in ductwork.
Lower maintenance – Ductless systems require less maintenance for you to breathe easier.
Quieter – Ductless systems are quieter than traditional HVAC units.
How much are ductless heating and cooling systems?
As with everything else, where you live in the U.S. will impact the cost of products, materials, and labor. You also want a good SEER (seasonal energy efficiency ratio) rating of 15-18.
According to HomeAdvisor, installing a ductless mini-split can cost anywhere between $2,000 and $14,500, depending on the size of the unit and how many zones you need.
