Chances are, you probably want your home to be a safe-and-cozy environment. Ductless systems address both of these needs. By installing one, you’ll drastically improve your indoor air quality (IAQ), as well as keeping your home the perfect temperature.
Brought to you by our team at M & M Heating and Cooling, here are some of the reasons millions of Americans are switching to ductless:
Comfort at Your Fingertips
Ductless systems make temperature control a breeze. With just the touch of a button, you can easily adjust the room temperature to your liking. Ductless units have both an air conditioner and a heat pump built in, so they provide the service of two units in one. Many ductless systems can also conveniently be controlled with your smart phone.
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), many American households have poor air quality: up to five times more polluted than the air outside. Don’t let your home be part of this statistic. Ductless systems cleanse your air in two ways:
1. Air Filtration
Ductless units are known for their exceptional air filtration. Their large filters collect even the tiniest molecules from the air. Regular air conditioners have ductwork, which often collects dust over time. Ductless models eliminate ducts, which eliminates this problem. Some advanced models go the extra mile by removing 99.9 percent of bacteria from the air. Ductless units are a great investment for families, particularly if any members suffer from allergies or asthma.
2. Humidity Control
Besides dust and pollen, mold is a common contributor to compromised air quality. Mold, like any form of life, needs water to survive. Humidity in your home causes water condensation. This condensation is an invitation for mold and mildew to grow. The mold and mildew release spores into your air, which can irritate the lungs. Ductless units can prevent all of this, because they remove humidity from the air and flush it into their condensate tanks.
Lower Your Bills
Many traditional air conditioners bring you comfort––that is until you see your bill at the end of the month! Ductless systems are much more energy efficient than traditional HVAC models. Because you’re using less electricity, you’ll pay less for utilities. That’s one more reason you’ll breathe a sigh of relief after switching to ductless mini-splits.
