Should Bay Area Homeowners Consider Ductless Heat Pumps

There are some situations in which ductwork is just not feasible when trying to cool or heat a space. Ductless heat pumps offer many advantages, whether you need additional cooling in a small space, an attic or garage, or are adding a room on to your home.

If you’re considering a ductless heat pump for your Bay Area home, here are some of the best reasons to make the purchase.

Styles for every decor. Some ductless heating and cooling systems stand on the floor, while others are designed to attach to the wall or ceiling. Many are available with remote controls, so using these ductless systems is easy. Because of the variety of styles, you can find one that blends with your decor whether in the home or office.

Ideal for cooling or heating small spaces. Why condition the air in your entire home, when all you need is cool or warm air in a small area or even a single room? Using a thermostat, you can customize the areas you want to heat or cool.

Less energy loss. With ducted HVAC systems, a substantial amount of conditioned air may be lost through leaks or holes in the ducts. In addition, ducted systems often direct air into all rooms of your home, even those not used. With a ductless heat pump, all of the cooled or heated air goes precisely where you want it, without wasting energy – or energy dollars!

Healthier indoor air. Ductless systems are easy to clean, and because many allergens, mold, and other debris can accumulate in ductwork, many of these airborne contaminants are eliminated because there are no ducts. Essentially, a ductless system can reduce symptoms of allergies, asthma, and other respiratory issues, helping your family breathe cleaner, healthier air.

While this type of system isn’t for every household, it is ideal is some situations and allows homeowners to enjoy cleaner air, reduced energy costs, and easy maintenance.
