Balancing My HVAC System

A few months ago, I realized that something was wrong with my HVAC system. It seemed like no matter what I did, some rooms were hot and some rooms were simply getting too much cooled air. Instead of trying to troubleshoot my air conditioner on my own, I called out a professional HVAC repairman for help. They went through each room of my house when the system was running to measure the outgoing airflow and to check for issues. They discovered some serious balance problems, which they resolved after running a few extra lines. Check out this blog to learn more about HVAC in general.

Three Ways Installing A New Ductless Heating And Cooling System Can Save You Money

Ductless heating and cooling systems are an alternative to central air conditioners and furnaces that, like their name would suggest, are installed without ductwork. Instead, ductless heating and cooling units have individual smaller units installed in each room, with each unit only providing climate control the immediate area immediately around it. Due to this unique method of climate control, ductless heating and cooling units provide a number of distinctive advantages to your home. Understanding what a ductless heating and cooling system has to offer your home can help you understand if installing such a system is the right fit for your needs.

No Temperature Loss

The main advantage of ductless heating and cooling systems over their traditional central counterparts is the fact that they do not make use of ductwork. This means that heat will not be lost (or gained, depending on the season) as air is moved throughout your home's ductwork. This increases the overall energy efficiency of your unit, and ensures that your energy bills are kept to a minimum.

Increased Customization of Climate Control

In a similar line to the above point, the fact that each room has its own dedicated heating and cooling unit installed within it allows for you to create heating and cooling zones throughout your home based on the areas that see the most usage. This means that you can cut down your climate control in other areas of your home at certain times of the day (such as reducing heating and cooling everywhere but the bedrooms at night, or focusing only on the living room if you're watching a movie) to ensure that you are using only the energy that you need to use. Zoning is another feature that can help keep energy bills low month to month.

Reduced Maintenance

Finally, another way that ductless heating and cooling systems can help save you money is through the reduced amount of maintenance that they require. This is because of the fact that they do not have ductwork that will need to be cleaned out: each individual unit will only have a single filter that needs to be replaced, a process that can usually be done by hand. Further, since the units are smaller and have fewer moving parts, as they don't require the power to push air throughout your home, there is less likelihood of a malfunction occurring – helping reduce repair costs over time.
