Are you thinking about ditching your current HVAC unit and upgrading to a ductless system? Are you wondering if it’s worth it? Here are three reasons you should consider going ductless in your Naples, FL, home.
Cool Individual Rooms or Areas
With a ductless system, you can have the unit control the temperature of one room or area individually. This control is beneficial if you have someone in the family who likes their room at a different temperature than the rest of the house. Some ductless systems allow you to control several rooms from one outdoor unit so that it’s easier to set the temperature for an entire level of the house.
They Save You Money on Energy Bills
When you have a traditional HVAC system, it requires ducting for the treated air to get delivered into the house. Ductwork, if not regularly maintained, can get cracks and holes, which allows for the warm or cool air to leak out of the system instead of flow to the inside of the home. This leakage can waste a lot of energy, causing your energy bill to rise. With a ductless system, there is no ductwork, so there is less chance of losing that valuable treated air.
They Are Energy Efficient
Depending on the age of your existing system, it may not have a high SEER rating. A SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) rating calculates how efficiently your system runs and performs. Most traditional HVAC systems have SEER ratings of 14 to 16, while most ductless ones have ratings as high as 30. The higher the number, the more efficient the system is at using energy.
