If you have issues with your current HVAC system in your Baton Rouge, Louisiana, home, it’s probably time to consider going ductless. Ductless HVAC systems are typically more efficient than traditional systems and offer an array of other benefits as well.
Adding an Addition to Your Home
If you’re adding an addition to your home, you have the choice of adding ductwork into the room or using a ductless HVAC system. Adding ductwork complicates your home addition and may involve more construction. Your current system might not have the capacity to heat or cool the space you’re adding. A ductless system is easy to install and will efficiently heat and cool the addition without the added logistical worries of adding ducts and using your current system.
Your Home Has Uneven Heating and Cooling
Uneven heating and cooling can happen for a variety of reasons. Duct leaks, a system that is too big or too small, closed or covered vents, and lack of insulation can all lead to uneven heating and cooling. Since ductless systems work in zones, you don’t have to worry about their capacity to heat and cool different spaces efficiently. You control each area individually. Since you aren’t relying on ducts and vents, you don’t have to worry about heating and cooling issues that stem from them.
Your Current System is Inefficient
You might not realize it, but you lose a lot of your efficiency in your ductwork. The air from your HVAC system has a long way to travel, and all that traveling gives way for air to leak out before it reaches your home. Furthermore, ductless systems also don’t cycle on and off like traditional systems. That cycling wastes energy. If you’re looking to upgrade to something more efficient, a ductless system could be your key.
