Instead of ductwork, a conduit that’s just a few inches wide connects the parts. A ductless system can help you increase the value of your east central Pennsylvania home and improve your indoor air quality. It’s usually more expensive than a conventional system, but smaller utility bills make it worth the investment. Ductless HVAC systems have fewer leaks, simple zoning, and fewer mechanical problems than most other systems.
Since there’s no ductwork, you won’t have to worry about gaps or holes in ducts that cause air leaks. This makes ductless systems more efficient and prevents many drafty or overly warm areas in your home. Without ductwork to spread dust, dirt, pollen, mold, and other pollutants through your rooms, you’ll also have better indoor air quality.
If your ductless HVAC system has more than one indoor air-handling unit, you can set different temperatures for different zones or parts of your home. That way, you won’t have to use energy to condition unoccupied rooms. You can control all your indoor units with a programmable thermostat, and many ductless units even come with a remote.
With one of these systems, you’ll never need to have your ductwork cleaned, seal leaks, add insulation to ducts, or pay for many other types of maintenance. You also won’t have to get your ductwork inspected along with your HVAC system. Since ductless systems don’t have to move air through ductwork, they also last longer with fewer breakdowns. If you upgrade to a ductless system, you can stop maintaining your old ductwork. Your HVAC technician will simply seal your old air registers to keep dust and pests out.
