If the HVAC system in your Newnan, Georgia, home is way past its prime, it won’t be able to heat your home effectively and efficiently during the cold winter months. Switching to a ductless HVAC system can be beneficial in many ways, from improving your home’s comfort to reducing your energy costs. Here are three reasons why you should use a ductless system to heat your home.
Greater Energy Savings
According to the Department of Energy, about 30 percent of the total amount of energy spent on space conditioning is lost in ducts. Since a ductless HVAC system doesn’t use ducts to distribute warm air throughout your home, it eliminates the energy waste that results from a bad duct system. This can help you substantially reduce the cost of your utility bills.
When you install a ductless HVAC system, you have total control over the comfort of your home. You can choose to install more air handlers if you want to achieve a higher level of comfort. Also, you can place them in any part of your living space without having to demolish any structure.
Another great benefit of a ductless mini-split is that it can satisfy the temperature preferences of all your family members. If you have a ducted system, you may sometimes find yourself burning up while someone else in your home is curled up under layers of blankets. A ductless system allows you and your family members to set different temperatures for different rooms, which makes everyone happy.
Some ducted HVAC systems can be noisy, which can make it difficult for you to relax or sleep. A ductless system is typically quieter because its main components are located outside your home. It’s so silent you probably won’t even know it’s running.
Ductless HVAC systems offer many benefits. For one thing, they are a lot easier to install than ducted systems because they don’t involve any major modification of your home. If you’re interested in getting a ductless HVAC system, contact Scott Walker Heating and Air at 770-282-5061.
