Ductless HVAC systems make the most of your energy dollars. These systems can cut utility bills by up to 40 percent compared to forced air systems. Here are some of the ways that ductless units can prevent energy losses in your Gurnee, IL home:
Eliminate Lost Energy Associated With Ductwork
Up to 30 percent of heated and cooled air can escape through leaky ducts. Ducts can also collect enough dust and dirt to obstruct airflow. Unfortunately, poor airflow makes the system work harder and wastes energy. Freshly treated air is delivered to each room directly from the outdoor compressor unit with a ductless system. No energy is wasted.
Reduce Energy Losses With Home Zoning
Each indoor unit in a ductless system has its own thermostat. This allows you to maintain different temperatures in different rooms. Energy loss is reduced because you’re not heating and cooling the rooms you don’t use.
Cut Energy Costs With a Programmable Thermostat
Programmable devices can automatically adjust indoor temperatures to maximize efficiency and reduce waste. You can save 10 percent or more on energy costs by programming your HVAC to reduce output while you’re at work or asleep.
Slash Energy Waste With a Variable-Speed Compressor
Traditional heating and AC systems run only at full capacity. Variable-speed compressors run only at the capacity required to achieve and maintain the desired indoor temperature. These systems can cut energy use by up to 64 percent.
Increase Energy Efficiency by Reducing Accumulated System Dirt
Energy efficiency can be greatly reduced when airflow is obstructed by excessive dirt. Ductless HVAC systems keep airflow strong with high-efficiency air filters. It reduces dirt build-up in your heat pump and improves indoor air quality.
