What are ductless split systems, and how do they work?
If your home needs an HVAC system with greater efficiency and flexibility, then a simpler solution may be just want you need. Ductless split systems are easy to install and offer tremendous flexibility with a number of great benefits, including zoned comfort in your home and improved indoor air quality.
What are ductless split systems?
As it says in the name, “ductless” systems do not need existing ductwork. This makes them perfect for historic properties, home additions, or rooms of your home that need additional heating and cooling attention. Installing new ductwork can be expensive and intrusive. Ductless splits systems are often a better way around the problem.
With this concept, your home uses one outdoor unit that can support up to five indoor wall-mounted systems. These are easy to control with one switch, which means you can manually adjust for temperature fluctuations throughout the day as you move in-and-out of rooms.
Ductless is easy to install
Because your ductwork resides behind your walls and in your attic, it can be a complex process to make changes or add new spaces to the system. Ductless units are easy to install, and without the requirement of duct attachment, they can be placed just about anywhere in your home.
A significant amount of cool air and heat can be lost as it journeys through the ductwork throughout your home. This results in lower energy-efficiency. Not only do ductless split systems eliminate this downside, but they also improve your efficiency by giving you the option to zone your comfort.
More control, more comfort
With a ductless system from Wagner, you can add up to five temperature zones to your home. Each designated area can then be controlled separately, allowing you to alter air and heat levels as you wish.
Some areas of your home may require more or less cooling or heat than others. The purpose of each zone can also be a factor in how you adjust the temperature. For example, you may want additional cool air flowing into a home gym or a room that receive a lot of direct sunlight.
Less ducts, less dust
Ducts collect a significant amount of dust, and eventually that dust enters your home through your air vents. This can be detrimental to anyone’s wellbeing, especially allergy sufferers. Split systems also filter air as it is pushed through, creating an additional layer of purified comfort.
