Homeowners in Melbourne, Florida, are typically familiar with centralized home HVAC systems. With these types of systems, one unit produces cool and warm air, and that air gets transferred throughout the house through ducts. But did you know you can go ductless with your home HVAC system? Find out how a ductless HVAC system can be an economical investment in your home’s comfort.
What Is a Ductless HVAC System?
Also called a mini-split unit, a ductless HVAC system has a condenser unit, located outdoors, and an air-handling unit, which contains the evaporator, located indoors. The air-handling unit, gets installed in a wall or ceiling. One outdoor condenser unit can service several air-handling units.
Cost Savings Associated With Ductless Systems
Below are some of the major cost savings you can receive when you install a ductless heating and cooling system in your home:
- Ductless systems make zoned heating and cooling in the home possible. With zoned temperature controls, you can more accurately calibrate temperatures in the precise areas where you need heating or cooling.
- Installation takes only a few hours compared to installing a full-scale system of ductwork, particularly if you have an older Florida home that can’t support ductwork. And unlike having to make a large hole in the wall for installation, as you would a room air conditioner, only a 3-inch opening is necessary for a power connection, refrigerant tubing, and other lines to connect the air-handling unit and condenser.
- With multi-stage levels of air filtration, you can improve the overall indoor air quality of your home.
- Since each unit installed in your home operates independently of one another, you can turn separate units on and off without having to power a single system on and off.
