Advantages of Installing Ductless Solutions
When considering your options for home cooling, it’s common here in Eastern Pennsylvania and Southern New Jersey for homeowners to think “Central Air” or “Central AC”. It’s the technology most of us know, and for many years, the most logical option for adding cooling to a home that was originally designed and built without air conditioning.
If you are considering adding central air conditioning to your home and you do not already have ductwork, the cost of the job requiring the installation of ductwork is considerably more expensive, disruptive and time-consuming.
How to tell if a Ductless System is right for you?
If you’re still questioning if a ductless system is a good choice for you, ask yourself these questions:
- Do I want to save money on electric bills?
- Do I want to control the temperature in every room easily?
- Do I want a more energy-efficient HVAC system?
- Do I want a system that’s easy to maintain?
- Do I want to replace inefficient, outdated technology?
If you said yes to any of these questions, then a ductless system is the right choice for you. You can explore different system designs with us to find out which one would be best for you.
How much will it cost?
The cost of a ductless solution for your home can vary tremendously depending on the size of the system, the number of systems, the numbers of indoor heads, and the complexity of the install. The very nature of the ductless architecture means that it has a building block approach to solving the comfort and /or operating costs you may have in your home. When we talk about a building block approach to the solution you can use a simple one small outdoor unit with a matched wall unit to meet just a small room cooling need, through to a very large system for a whole home, with 5 indoor heads some of which are floor mounted, some of which are cut into the ceiling (Cassette), even a ducted unit for a couple of rooms and some of which are standard high wall units providing both a heating and cooling solution with integrated thermostats in each room, then the cost can vary significantly.
Not only will the cost depend on the amount of equipment purchased but also impact the cost of the install. Furthermore the structure of the house and its building material can also have an impact on the house. In some cases 2 separate systems may be more efficient and cost effective than one single system – again impacting the cost of the solution.
To help offset the cost of ductless installs, and because they are seen as some of the most efficient heating and cooling solutions for the home there are multiple rebates available from utilities for the install of a ductless system.
Also many manufacturers offer rebates as well. The combined value can be over $1000.
