If you need an HVAC system for a small living space, including a converted garage or a room addition, a ductless air conditioner is a smart choice. That’s because, when compared to window AC systems, ductless air conditioners use less energy to provide you with cool air. Here’s why homeowners in Duluth and Lawrenceville, Georgia, love ductless HVAC systems:
They Save You Money
As mentioned, ductless HVAC systems operate on less power. That’s because they’re smaller than forced-air systems and more efficient than window units. You also don’t risk losing conditioned air via leaky ducts or cracks. All of that translates to savings on your monthly energy bill. What’s more, you can also receive tax credits and utility debates.
They Improve Indoor Air Quality
Unless you’ve already taken steps to improve it, your home’s air quality is likely worse than the air outside. Unlike a forced-air system, you don’t have to worry about duct cleaning with a ductless HVAC system. Ductless HVAC systems also offer multi-stage filtration, helping reduce dust, pollen, bacteria and other harmful pollutants in the air.
They Reduce Your Carbon Footprint
Greater energy efficiency equates to a reduced carbon footprint. Ductless HVAC systems not only follow Energy Star guidelines but they also use R-410A refrigerant. R-410A refrigerant doesn’t deplete the ozone like the now banned R-22.
They Are Easy to Install
You can install a handful of ductless HVAC systems to create zones in your home. But if you install a single ductless HVAC system, it can be up and running within hours. They’re a great choice if you need to cool your home right away.
