Ductless mini-split systems are one of the most popular alternative climate control options currently on the market. Due to their surge in popularity, there’s some misunderstanding about these systems. We’ve made this quick guide to give you the truth about ductless HVAC systems to help you decide if one is right for your Mansfield, Texas, home.
Ductless is Only Meant for New Construction
Ductless HVAC systems aren’t just a new construction system. In fact, a significant portion of their common use is for retrofitting historic homes with climate control solutions that don’t require major renovations to install. They don’t require central ductwork. Therefore, they can get air to places in your home where the central system doesn’t reach, whether you have a historic or new construction home.
Ductless Systems are Inefficient
Ductless HVAC systems offer dynamic climate control options for their owners. Some homeowners find that these systems are ideal for supplementing central HVAC systems or offering additional climate control to specific areas of the home. Homeowners will have more options for climate control in different areas of their homes. More options mean homeowners can avoid controlling the climate of an area that they aren’t in. As a result, you can avoid spending money to heat or cool empty rooms.
Ductless Systems are Bad for Indoor Air Quality
Another common myth is that ductless HVAC systems are bad for home indoor air quality. That’s because people think they recycle the air inside your home. Some people think this means it’s just keeping bacteria and unwanted contaminants cycling in your air. But this isn’t true. Like central HVAC systems, ductless mini-splits use effective filters that help improve your home’s indoor air quality.
