Ductless systems are a great option, whether you need climate control in just one area of your home or for the whole house.

Ductless systems don’t need ductwork to operate and are much more efficient than options like electric baseboard heat or window AC units. But there are many other advantages to choosing a ductless system for your home. In this article, we’ll talk about five great reasons to go ductless, and how Empire can help.

5 Reasons to Go Ductless

If you’ve been considering turning to ductless cooling and heating, you might be wondering what some of the advantages might be. Below, learn more about how ductless can benefit your home:

  1. Energy Efficiency: Ductless systems use much less energy than other room home comfort products, like electric baseboard heat or window AC. While initially, they are more costly than space heating or room air conditioning, you’ll save money in the long run on your utility bills.
  2. Multiple Configurations: Whether you need to heat just one room or your entire home, a ductless system can get the job done. It offers an effective alternative for space heating and window AC but also is available in multiple units that can be installed throughout your home for an all-over home comfort solution – perfect for homes that do not have ductwork.
  3. Safety: Some space heaters can cause safety concerns, especially those that burn fuel, such as kerosene heaters. These types of heaters can cause burns, as they are usually on the floor and within reach of children and pets. Additionally, they can emit carbon monoxide if not properly vented and can cause fires. And, window air conditioning units can be pulled out of the window by children or pets and can give your home easier access to intruders. Ductless units are mounted inside your home, high on a wall or ceiling, and out of your floor space.
  4. Ease of Operation: Ductless systems are easy to operate, and most use a handheld remote to adjust the temperature. Because they can be installed in different areas, or zones, throughout your home, you can get targeted comfort for each area. And, they are easy to maintain. The unit is easy to clean with a damp cloth, and the filter is removable for ease of cleaning. Like any other type of HVAC equipment, yearly maintenance by a professional technician is recommended.
  5. Year-Round Comfort: Most ductless systems offer heating in the winter, and air conditioning in the summer months – all in one unit. During the cooler months, these units will extract heat from the outdoor air and pump it into your home. When the temperatures outside warm up, your ductless system will reverse the process and pump the hot air out of your home.

As you can see, choosing ductless for your home has many advantages. You’ll enjoy comfort and efficiency all year long, all in one unit, because all the systems offered by Empire use heat pump systems that will keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
