3 Ways a Ductless System Can Save You Money This Summer
Cooling your Boca Raton, Florida, home doesn’t have to break the bank this summer. A ductless HVAC system helps reduce your energy consumption and allows you to better manage your air conditioner so you save money. Reduced installation costs, zoning functionality, and increased efficiency represent just a few cost-saving advantages of ductless HVAC systems.
Save Money on Installation
When you need a new HVAC system, the standard variety can seem intimidating. However, ductless HVAC systems cost much less to install, thanks to the elimination of the need for ductwork. If your old air conditioner or heat pump no longer functions as it should, you could save money by switching to ductless instead of replacing your system with traditional appliances.
Benefit From a Zoned System
HVAC zoning allows you to independently control the temperature in separate areas of your home. For instance, maybe you only use upstairs when you have guests, so you wouldn’t need as much cooling in that area as you would for the occupied downstairs spaces. Each zone gets its own thermostat, so experiment with different settings to find the most budget-friendly solution to your cooling needs.
Harness High-Efficiency Technology
While many traditional HVAC systems offer exceptional efficiency, ductless HVAC appliances often consume less energy, which makes them easier on the wallet. For instance, the U.S. Department of Energy reports that as a result of leaks up to 30 percent of energy gets lost through the ductwork. If you eliminate the ducts, you remove the potential for energy loss through tears and cracks.
Additionally, ductless mini-split air conditioners often come with Energy Star certification. This means they meet the standards set forth by the U.S. Department of Energy for maximum energy savings. You’ll reduce your carbon footprint and lighten the load on your bank account.
