A ductless HVAC system has an indoor air handler and an outdoor compressor. A small conduit for refrigerant connects the two units. Instead of installing an indoor unit inside a closet or cabinet in your Sugar Hill, Georgia, home like you would with a conventional system, you can have the indoor air handler attached to a wall or ceiling. It’s less costly than a traditional unit, and many styles and sizes are available. A ductless system can provide improved comfort, energy savings, and indoor air quality.
Many ductless HVAC systems have more than one indoor air handler, allowing you to manage zoning. You can set multiple air handlers to different temperatures from a remote control or a programmable or smart thermostat. That way, your family members can choose how hot or cold they want their bedrooms without making others uncomfortable. You can also compensate easily for warm or drafty areas.
Since ductless systems don’t require ducts to be installed, you won’t lose warm or cold air through leaks in your ductwork. You can also avoid cooling or heating vacant rooms in your home.
Indoor Air Quality
Pollutants such as dirt, pet dander, dust, and pest droppings can travel easily through ductwork, spreading to all the rooms of your home. With a ductless system, each indoor air handler has an air filter to capture contaminants and get rid of bad smells before they can spread. Better indoor air quality will help you and your family alleviate asthma or allergy symptoms, sore throats, colds, the flu, and many other issues.
