Does your home already have ductwork? Is your home smaller than 2,000 square feet? These are a few of the questions homeowners in Bloomington, Illinois, ask when deciding whether to invest in a ductless HVAC system.
Condition an Extra Room or a Garage
While your home might already have a central HVAC system with ductwork, extending it to heat and cool a room addition or garage can become costly. Not only does installing a ductless HVAC system cost less but it’s also easy. In fact, a service technician can have your ductless HVAC system operating within the same day of installation.
Cool and Heat a Small Home Efficiently
If you’re building a new home and it’s larger than 2,0000 square feet, it’s best to invest in a central HVAC system. A ductless HVAC system doesn’t have enough power to efficiently cool and heat that large of a space. But if your home is smaller, you should consider installing a single-zoned ductless system and talk to a service technician about it.
Create a Multi-Zoned Environment
Do some parts of your home get hotter or colder than others? Do your loved ones constantly bicker about the temperature inside your home? If so, consider a zoning system. While both central and ductless HVAC systems include zoning options, it’s cheaper to create a multi-zoned environment in your home with ductless. That’s because, when you’re zoning your home, a central HVAC system requires you to upgrade ductwork to include internal dampers.
Take Advantage of Supplemental Heating
Some ductless HVAC systems don’t only operate as air conditioners; they also run as heat pumps. That means, when the temperatures outside become colder, the system can reverse direction and heat your home. In fact, it’ll keep your home warm through temperatures as low as 20 degrees. As a result, it’ll help you use your furnace less.
