Reasons to Consider a Ductless HVAC System

If you need to make a small space feel more comfortable, a ductless system may be an ideal solution. 

It may not be practical to connect your HVAC system to all parts of your home. That’s especially true for older homes that have little to no insulation in some areas, like mudrooms or enclosed porches. But ductless systems (also called mini-splits) can make those spaces much more comfortable. 

Ductless systems are suitable for small outbuildings, attics, potting sheds, and other small areas where your family likes to spend time. With these dual-purpose devices, you can heat or cool spaces any time of year.

An Alternative to Window Units

Window air conditioners tend to be noisy, cumbersome, and sometimes challenging to install safely and correctly. Some homeowners associations forbid the use of window air conditioners, but they may be more receptive to ductless systems, which have a low profile and operate quietly. 

With a ductless system, you can keep your windows closed and locked, which is a security advantage over window units. Ductless cooling is also perfect for rooms like sun porches, where windows may be of a shape and size that’s incompatible with portable AC units. 

Reduce Fire Hazards

A space heater may keep your feet warm in the office, but these devices can be dangerous if placed too close to flammable objects, left unattended, or if knocked over. A ductless HVAC system lets you safely heat chilly areas in your home, including workshops or garages where flammable items might be stored. 

Achieving Family Harmony

Rarely does every family member agree about what the indoor air temperature should be. With a ductless system, you can give one person a 75-degree bedroom while keeping the rest of your home at 68 degrees.
