Go Ductless

If you own a home in the River Oaks, Texas, area, you are probably wondering how you can improve the HVAC system in your house to make your family more comfortable all year long. Fortunately for you, there are technologies available that aim to do just that. We can help you learn the advantages of a ductless system, such as improved efficiency, and how to benefit from having one in your home.

How a Ductless System Works

Ductless air conditioners, also known as mini split-systems, are common household applications that are without complex and inconvenient ductwork. By using a series of zone heating and cooling systems, like radiant panels and indoor air handlers, your ductless system keeps individual rooms at comfortable temperatures.

In older homes especially, ductless systems can be extremely beneficial as they aim to reduce the amount of energy loss that’s usually associated with central, forced-air systems. Without a duct system to leak treated air, you can reduce energy consumption by as much as 30 percent according to the U.S. Department of Energy, thus saving you on your monthly expenses, all while living in a comfortable environment.

Disadvantages of Window Units

Not only are window units clunky and huge space wasters, they can also be inefficient systems. By allowing hot air to seep through the panels, the system has to work even harder to keep the room cool, thus creating a vicious cycle. Ductless air conditioners are an aesthetically pleasing, alternative efficient solution.

Split Pumps Over Complex Heating Systems

Split-pump systems eliminate the need for a two-piece indoor-outdoor system, where energy can be lost in traditional heat pumps. Because split pumps don’t have to rely on treated air to travel through ductwork, these systems can be simpler, and thus more efficient, than more traditional heat pump systems.
