Ways Ductless Cooling Systems Can You Save Money
Ductless cooling offers certain possibilities that weren’t available before, such as having whole-house cooling in homes that do not have ductwork. But these systems may also save you money in the following ways:
No Air Loss from Ductwork
It is estimated that upwards of 20% of cool air can be lost through ductwork because of cracks, holes and broken seals, which can result in higher utility bills. With a ductless cooling system, there is no ductwork, eliminating loss of this kind.
Each air blower in a ductless system operates independently; this automatically gives you the ability to control the temperature setting for each unit, including turning off a blower for a space that does not require cooling. Cooling only what you need means using less energy, and using less energy can mean lower utility bills.
Lower Maintenance Costs
The outside unit for a ductless system is very similar to a standard split-system air conditioner and requires the same type of maintenance care, but indoor maintenance with a ductless system can be less costly for two reasons: first, the air blowers are small and compact, allowing for easy access and cleaning; second, there is no extensive ductwork to clean and repair.
