If you’ve converted a basement into a living space, built an addition, or have a sun porch you’d like to use year-round, you probably know comfort in those rooms can be an issue. But, it can be hard to heat or cool these areas of your Long Island, NY home because they lack ductwork, making it difficult to tie your home comfort system into those spaces. You might not like the look – or the inconvenience – of bulky window AC units, and you might be concerned about the safety issues attached to space heaters. So what can you do to make those spaces of your home without ductwork more livable?
If your home is lacking ductwork, or there’s a particular room in your house that is too warm or cold, a ductless heating and cooling system is the perfect solution. You might be thinking ductless isn’t right for your Long Island, NY home because it isn’t as inconspicuous as heating and cooling with ducts, but that’s a common misconception. Ductless systems work well as long as your space has walls and a ceiling, as the units are mounted up in a high spot on the wall to fully circulate the air to all corners of the room.
And, with ductless, you won’t have a bulky system hanging out of your window like you would with a window AC unit, or a unit taking up an outlet and sitting in the middle of your room like you would with a space heater. Even better, ductless heating and cooling systems provide all the efficiency of a standard HVAC system, but because of the lack of ductwork, they’re quiet and tucked out of the way.
Aside from their inconspicuous nature, there are several other advantages to installing a ductless system in your home. Here are just a few additional reasons why you might want to choose ductless heating and cooling options for your Long Island, NY home:
Better Comfort: Ductless systems are made to move cooled and heated air efficiently and evenly through your room. Just one unit can heat and cool a fairly large living space, which makes them a perfect choice for homes with open floor plans.
Energy Savings: Ductless systems are much more efficient than space heaters and window AC units, and even provide better efficiency than electric heat in many instances. You’ll save money on your utility bills when you choose to go ductless.
Heating & Cooling Combo: You’ll be comfortable all year round when you install a ductless heating and cooling system. Your system will offer AC when you need it during those sweltering summer months, and heat when the temperatures outside turn chilly.
No Messy Construction: Because your ductless system doesn’t require invasive ductwork installation, you’ll be able to enjoy hassle-free home comfort quickly, and without the need for a messy remodeling project.
Better Indoor Air Quality: Ductless cooling and heating systems offer improved filtration, meaning dust, pollen, germs, mildew and odors are better mitigated, and fresh, healthier air is circulated around your home.
