There are a lot of benefits of going ductless in your Bath, Pennsylvania, home. The best way to take advantage of the energy savings, the quietness, and the indoor air quality benefits is to make sure it’s placed correctly. You can have a say as to where it should go, but make sure your contractor agrees it’s the best place for it.
Consider Your Floor Plan
The floor plan of your home makes a big difference as to where your ductless mini-split system would work the best. If you have an open floor plan, you have a little more flexibility with the location. If the rooms are closed off, then you need to be more thoughtful about where you should mount the unit for the best heating and cooling for your home. You will need more than one unit if your home has multiple stories or if your home has quite a few rooms.
Out of Sight Out of Mind
You want the unit to be out of sight and out of mind. One of the benefits of a ductless system is that they are virtually silent. Since you can’t hear it, you don’t want to notice it aesthetically either. Although it comes standard in white or beige, most homeowners don’t even notice it the home. It should be placed high just below the ceiling so it’s out of the way and can efficiently heat or cool your home.
Trust Your HVAC Contractor
Your HVAC contractor knows how to install your unit so it will provide comfort to your home and be the most efficient. There is some wiggle room in the placement, but you don’t want to end up having hot or cold spots in your house because you didn’t have it installed in the right place.
