Whether you just finished your basement or added on a new addition to the house, there’s no need to start extending the ductwork for your home’s HVAC system. Instead, you can choose a ductless system that can efficiently heat and cool the newest room in your home.
Like all space conditioning systems, an indoor ductless unit will need to be hooked up to its outdoor counterpart. To connect the two units, only a three-inch hole will need to be made within the wall to run the appropriate conduits. The indoor unit can be installed virtually anywhere, while still being able to have the outdoor unit located on the side of the house, out of sight.
Look, Mom, No Ducts
Naturally, ductless systems do not utilize ductwork. Not only will you save thousands of dollars on the installation of ductwork, but you won’t have to worry about energy losses. Ductwork that runs through unconditioned areas like the attic and crawl space, in combination with air leaks, can result in a 30 percent increase in your monthly energy bills.
Ductless systems also offer extreme flexibility as they can be installed pretty much everywhere. You can opt to suspend it from the ceiling, hang it on the wall, or go for a standing unit for the floor. Once the unit is installed, you can easily turn it on and off via the remote control.
