The weather is getting cooler and it’s time to think about how you’re going to heat your Rolesville, North Carolina, home. Are you staying with your old HVAC system with the outdated ductwork and its cracks and leaks? Or are you going to switch it up and save energy with a new ductless HVAC system? Here’s how the newer ductless options can keep your family warm and increase your savings at the same time.
Higher SEER Ratings
Many ductless systems have a higher seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) rating. This is a standardized efficiency rating that shows that the mini-split ductless system is more efficient when compared to a conventional HVAC system. Look for a unit with an Energy Star rating for your home and compare it to similar products. If you’re connecting multiple ductless systems, you can choose different sizes and ratings based on your family’s needs and the space being heated or cooled.
No Ductwork Needed
A ductless HVAC system is beneficial in many different situations. If you’ve added on to your home, have a finished basement, a sunroom, or any other section of your home that is not connected to your existing ducted system, a ductless HVAC system is a perfect solution. Without the traditional ductwork to lose heat and air, your mini-split unit will heat and cool the specific area you choose.
Create Comfort Zones
With ductless mini-split units throughout your home, you can set sections of your house to the same temperature at various times of the day. While everyone is awake and moving around, the bedrooms can be set to a lower temperature so you’re not heating unused rooms. Once the family heads to bed, set the living area and kitchen to the lower temperature. The savings in energy will show up on your bill before you know it.
