A ductless or mini-split cooling system has an outdoor unit and one or more indoor units, similar to a central HVAC system. Instead of ductwork though, a small conduit in the walls of your home carries conditioned air from the outdoor to the indoor units. The same conduit provides power and has a drain for condensation. Ductless cooling systems are more versatile, more efficient, and easier to maintain than central HVAC systems. These are just a few of the amazing benefits of a ductless system for your Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, home.
Ductless cooling systems are ideal for a new addition or for an older home without space for ductwork. You can also save closet, basement, and attic space by using a ductless system instead of bulky ductwork.
You can place the indoor units for a ductless HVAC system out of the way on walls or ceilings, as long as they are within 50 feet of the outdoor unit. Many systems come with remotes, so you can install indoor units anywhere, even if they’re out of reach.
Ductless systems don’t lose energy through ductwork, so they’re more efficient and can cool your home faster. It’s also easy to add zoning to a ductless cooling system with more than one indoor unit. With zoning, each indoor unit has its own thermostat, so you can control it independently. This means you save money and energy when you avoid cooling rooms that aren’t being used.
A ductless HVAC system doesn’t have many of the maintenance expenses of a central system, like sealing leaks in ductwork, duct cleaning, and installing and repairing insulation around ducts. If you upgrade to a ductless system, you’ll save money over time through lower utility bills and maintenance costs.
