Ductless HVAC systems open up a whole new world of flexibility when it comes to getting the heating and cooling you need. Because they don’t require a large and expensive network of ducts to operate correctly, these systems are cheaper, more efficient, and easier to implement than central HVAC systems by degrees of magnitude. While one ductless system isn’t nearly enough to heat or cool your entire home, there are plenty of situations in which one may be the perfect solution to your needs.
You may find sometimes that using your central heating and cooling system for a certain situation isn’t ideal, and may wind up being more expensive to implement and operate. However, going ductless is easier, cheaper, and may be the perfect solution. Here are four of these situations in which you may find that a ductless HVAC system is exactly what you’re looking for.
New Home Addition
Have you built a new addition onto your home, such as a home office, game room, guest bedroom, workshop, or one of many other different types of spaces? Adding a new addition into your HVAC system can be tremendously expensive, difficult, and may even require you to completely replace your system in order to handle this new, additional load.
However, using a ductless HVAC system can help prevent that hassle. Not only does this give you precise control over the climate in that particular space, but the lower cost makes construction cheaper and even cuts back on the timeline until your project is completed. Plus it’s extremely easy to build one of these systems into your new addition if you plan for it from the start, and that means an even better and more reliable installation.
More Comfortable Garage
Do you spend an abundance of time out working in your garage? Do you use your garage as a hang-out or entertaining space? If this is the case, doing so in summer is more than likely not your idea of a good time. The humidity and heat of Florida’s summer months is downright brutal. However, the heat and humidity can make this both uncomfortable and unpleasant.
However, by adding a ductless cooling and heating system to your garage, you can shut the door and enjoy a climate-controlled space that’s a pleasure to work or hang out in. Whether you need to get some work done on the car, you want to sit back and watch the game, or you want to work on some other hobby, a ductless HVAC system can make your garage a great place to be.
That Pesky Room in Your Home
Do you have one room in your home which seems to always be significantly hotter and more humid during summer months than the rest of your home? Is that same room always colder during winter as well? This is more than likely because your current HVAC system simply doesn’t have the power to heat or cool it, or its position and the way your ducts are routed simply doesn’t allow it to get the same degree of temperature control that you need. A ductless HVAC system can change that, and doesn’t require you to completely overhaul your duct system or replace your current HVAC equipment!
Leased or Rented Rooms
Some people who have extra rooms in their home choose to rent their space to tenants in order to earn a little extra cash and make their home work for them. However, tenants aren’t always comfortable when you are, and that can lead to disagreements or issues that may become obnoxious after a while. If you’re going to be leasing a room, why not let a tenant create their own comfort by allowing them to control the temperature in their own space? Ductless systems work great for allowing this, and can even save money on energy costs.
