For anyone that owns an HVAC system with ductwork, they know how much of a burden their maintenance and care can be over time. From cleaning out the built-up dust to ensuring there is a continuous stream of airflow through the system, ducts can sometimes be monotonous and overbearing with the amount of TLC they need. Luckily, Air Tech of Houston AC & Plumbing has a solution to these problems: going ductless!
How Do Ductless ACs Work?
Ductless AC units work similarly to an AC system with ducts attached. The difference is that without the ductwork, the system is able to send the cold air directly to the chosen room instead of re-circulating in the duct system. This ensures that your HVAC system is able to send air to one room instead of the whole house, making them perfect for any home addition.
If there are no ducts in your system, there are less things you have to repair and maintain! No longer will you have to repair the seal for your duct, clear out any dust and debris build-up, or worry about fixing the flow of air in your home. Your air will have only one route to go through, ensuring that any chance of escape is minimized.
With a simple one-way stream of air and no leakage, you can benefit from lower energy consumption, better air flow, improved indoor air quality and better circulation throughout your home – all reducing the cost of your monthly bill.
Improved Quality of Air
When there are no breaches in the duct’s seal, it ensures that any allergen or air pollutant, like dirt and dust build-up, stays out of your HVAC system directly. This will ensure a higher air quality and more comfortable breathing.
The loud “whoosh” and rushing of air as it begins circulating throughout your system is almost inaudible with a ductless AC system. Your home will be able to maintain a quiet background ambience throughout the day with no loud interruptions.
What Kinds of Homes Can Benefit from Going Ductless?
Almost any kind of home can benefit from installing a ductless AC system, but they are the most cost-effective if your home is older and lacks ductwork. If your home already has ductwork installed throughout, it is best to utilize it. For the situation of renovating a room or creating an add-on to your home, installing a ductless AC system removes the hassle of attaching the room to the already established ductwork and saves the cost of creating more.
