We all have that room in the house that just isn’t as comfortable as others. Fortunately, solving that issue is one of the biggest benefits of ductless systems. But what are they? The Carrier® pros at RJ Heating and Air Conditioning explain below. Read it over and call us to find out if these units are right for your home.
How Do You Know If You Need a Ductless System?
Do you have one room that always stays hot, no matter how much you crank your thermostat? Or maybe you just can’t get warm in that one spot each winter?
Of course, you don’t want to crank up the heat and risk making the unaffected rooms too hot—and vice versa in the summer. Not only is this inconvenient, but it can also run up your energy bills.
There are several reasons you’re experiencing inconsistent temperatures in your home. Maybe you’ve made an addition over the years, and the newer area isn’t equipped with ductwork. This is often the case with finished basements. Both the design and layout of your home also factor in. For example, if you have a room over a garage, you’ll usually find that area is colder in winter and warmer in summer. This is a perfect scenario for a ductless system.
What Makes a Ductless System Different?
When you run cool air or heat through a typical duct-based system, that air is forced through ductwork in your home. From there, it funnels into your rooms using vents, where it circulates until it meets the temperature set on your thermostat.
Ductless systems are different. As the name suggests, no ducts are involved. Instead, the system is installed directly in the room of your choosing. They are visible, which is a factor to consider if this is bothersome to you, though more aesthetically pleasing than a window air conditioner or space heater. Other benefits of ductless systems include their compact size and less noise production as compared to a central system.
Custom Comfort in Any Area of Your Home
You can choose to install a single ductless system or a series of them. Multiple units will help you to create the perfect level of comfort in every area of your home. Installing several can also help you more closely monitor temperatures in different areas, which can help bring down your overall heating and cooling costs. However, a single is perfect if you just have one room or area that you want to target without affecting the rest of the house.
