The Holidays are fast approaching, and we are willing to bet that you’ve already started shopping for awesome gifts for your friends and family. And while we truly admire your selflessness, we want you to stop and think about you for a second!
See, we think that you should treat yourself with a ductless system this holiday season. Ductless systems offer a number of unique benefits, and below, we have listed just some of many for you! All you’ve got to do is keep reading to find out more (and as always, remember to call our team when you need heating services in Leesburg, VA.)
What Exactly is a Ductless System?
A ductless system, also known as a mini-split system, is a heating/cooling system that does not rely on a network of ducts. Instead, it utilizes one outdoor condenser unit and multiple indoor air handlers to deliver comfort to every inch of your home!
Additionally, the ductless system comes equipped with a reversing valve, which allows you to reverse the direction the refrigerant flows through the system!
Why is this exciting?
Well because this allows for home heating in addition to cooling! That’s right: with just one system, you can both heat and cool your home!
What are the Benefits?
Like we mentioned above, there are plenty of reasons to make the switch to a ductless system, including:
Ductless systems are quite versatile, as they are able to switch between “heating mode” and “cooling mode” with just the flip of a switch. Homeowners enjoy year-round comfort with just one system, making them a convenient option.
In general, ductless systems are more energy-efficient than traditional forced-air heating systems, simply because they do not generate heat, but rather transfer it from one place to another. Additionally, because ductless systems have no ducts, they avoid the energy losses associated with duct leaks, which as you may know, can account for more than 30% of energy waste!
First of all, installing ductwork can be a difficult and expensive process, depending on the layout of your home. Plus, some homes may not even have the space for ductwork, making the ductless system a great alternative — installing a ductless system is less invasive, cheaper, and can be completed in as little as one day.
In addition, maintaining two different HVAC systems can be a little overwhelming and expenses can add up over the years. Installing a ductless system eliminates the need to service two different systems by combining a heater and an air conditioner into just one system.
So, What are You Waiting For?
