Ductless Heating and Cooling Units
Ductless heating and cooling units are HVAC systems that are provide consistent room comfort in a very efficient manner. These ductless units consist of a wall mounted indoor unit combined with an outdoor compressor and is most often used where a window cooling unit or baseboard heating would be considered. This occurs quite often in home additions.
What makes ductless heating and cooling units preferable to a window or wall unit is that wall units need giant holes in the walls where a ductless unit needs a small hole drilled into the wall. This makes the ductless unit less vulnerable to air leakage and security problems. They are also less audible and less visible making them less of a nuisance.
In addition to the look and feel, they are much more energy-efficient, most of the time saving 25% or more on your energy bill since there is no duct work that needs to have air pushed through to get into the room. Ductless heating and cooling units can also have inverter-driven compressors, which speed up and slow down based on the needs of the system instead of shutting off entirely like a traditional HVAC compressor does. A large amount of energy consumption occurs during compressor startup.
