A ductless heating and cooling system
Why Should You Select a
One of the main benefits of the ductless heating and cooling system is that it can help save on your energy bills. The system allows you to select the rooms in which it is installed. Instead of heating or cooling the whole house, only the rooms you want are impacted. As a result, your bills are significantly lower.
Ductless systems are also relatively easy to install. An experienced HVAC contractor can install the system in a shorter period of time than a traditional system. You can save on installation costs, which means even more money in your pocket.
What Are the Drawbacks?
Even though there are many benefits to having a ductless heating and cooling system, there are some disadvantages to having the system. For instance, the initial cost of the system is sometimes overwhelming for homeowners. The system can be as much as $7,000 for a unit for a larger home.
Another potential problem with the ductless system is that it can be challenging to get the sizing on the unit correct sometimes. If the unit that is installed in your home is too large, it can cause the system to turn on and off frequently. The short-cycling of the system can mean a higher energy bill for you.
Ductless systems are also installed in plain sight. Instead of having a system that operates in the background, it is noticeable. However, its presence will seem less intrusive as you and your family become more accustomed to the system.
To learn of other benefits and disadvantages of the ductless heating and cooling system, consult with your air conditioner contractor. He or she can help determine if it is right for your needs and make recommendations for another system, if necessary. To find out more, speak with someone like A & E Heating and AC Inc.
