Ductless HVAC systems have been popular in Europe and other locations worldwide for decades. Yet, in the United States, most homes rely on traditional ducted systems. But what do you do if your Schaumburg, IL, home doesn’t have existing ductwork for a new addition?
Ductless HVAC Systems Are the Perfect Solution
Ductless options can heat and cool a home for less without sacrificing performance. They’re the perfect option if you’re building a home addition and don’t want to spend money reconfiguring the existing duct system. Or you live in an older home that doesn’t have traditional ductwork.
Many people living in homes without existing ductwork often believe their only option is bulky window AC units. These units do a fine job cooling the home but are noisy, cumbersome, and lack style. Ductless mini-split systems cool as well (if not better) than window units but are much quieter and installed inside each room near the ceiling. They also heat the home.
Other benefits of ductless systems include:
- Multiple heating and cooling zones
- Easy installation
- Improved indoor air quality
- Increased efficiency
How to Install a Ductless HVAC System
First, you must determine whether you need a single-zone or multi-zone system. A single-zone system serves one room. Each room has an indoor air handler that connects to a single outdoor condenser. Multi-zone systems have one outdoor condenser that connects to up to five indoor handlers. If you have limited outdoor space, a multi-zone system is likely the better option.
Next, you need to schedule professional installation services. A ductless system requires the expertise of HVAC professionals. You can’t install one of these systems yourself as you would a window unit.
If your home doesn’t have existing ductwork, save yourself the expense and hassle of installing something that’s not necessary. Ductless HVAC systems deliver exceptional heating and cooling performance, work great in all homes, and contribute to cleaner indoor air. What more could you want?
