Benefits of a Ductless HVAC System You May Not Have Thought Of

Monday, May 8th, 2023


We offer ductless AC service in Bergen County, NY and Rockland County, NY, and we’ve seen the immense benefits of these systems. They are especially useful for older homes built before central air conditioning systems became common. These vintage homes don’t have ductwork, and although it’s possible to add ducts, running them through attics or in closets, it’s a great deal of work and reduces space in the house. 

With a ductless system, all that has to happen is for us to place air handlers high up on the walls of the rooms and install an outdoor unit that connects to them. It’s an easy process for our professionals and leaves a home with cooling throughout the rooms that’s as good, and sometimes better, than using a central AC.

However, there are other ductless HVAC advantages you might not know about because you’re focused on the big advantage of having central cooling at last. Below are several other great benefits of having an HVAC system installed.

It can seem counter-intuitive to have an air conditioning system that doesn’t need ductwork, but that’s exactly what a ductless mini-split air conditioner is. The system isn’t wildly different from a traditional split system AC – in fact, the outdoor unit of a ductless system is almost the same as one from a traditional split system AC. You may be wondering how this system can effectively deliver whole home cooling without ductwork, so here is an overview from the air conditioning experts at DB Heating & Cooling.

Why Ductless Air Conditioning Systems May Be Right for You

Friday, June 6th, 2014

What is ductless air conditioning? It is an innovation that has already existed for decades, but was originally restricted to business use. Now ductless mini splits (as they are often called) have entered homes in a big way because of their huge advantages in comfort, savings, and convenience.

The basic way that a ductless system works is this: Instead of having a single indoor and outdoor unit (an evaporator and a condenser) like standard air conditioners and heat pumps, a ductless mini split uses multiple blower units on the indoors that hook up independently to the outdoor condenser. Each blower contains a fan and coil and blows conditioned air directly into a room—no ducts necessary!

Ductless systems will not match every home or family. Contact DB Heating & Cooling when you are interested in finding out if a ductless air conditioning in Emerson, NJ is right for you. We will help you make the choice and then install whatever system will best do the job.

Reasons you should consider ductless air conditioning:

  • They also provide heat: Ductless mini splits are heat pumps—which means they can switch over to heating mode whenever you no longer need to run the AC during the end of the year. You have a two-in-one comfort solution.
  • More building and design freedom: If you are planning to remodel your house or build a new one, ductless systems give you more freedom for design without worrying about ducts getting in the way or gobbling up valuable space. Ductless mini splits are also excellent for add-on rooms, since you won’t have to resize and reinstall a new air conditioner/heat pump to accommodate the large space.
  • Improved indoor air quality: Without ductwork, you won’t have a reservoir for dust and dirt to collect in the ventilation system and get blown out into the air. No more regular duct cleaning jobs to keep them clean; you have no ductwork to worry about at all, and that means cleaner air and an increase in overall indoor air quality.
  • Energy savings: Because you no longer need to cool (or heat) every room when you turn on your comfort system, you’ll save money. You can shut off the air to empty guest rooms or dining rooms that no one is using. This will save large amounts of money off your utility bills, and the people who live in your home will have individual control over the temperatures wherever they are… and that means a happier household all around.

Ducted or Ductless? We’re ready to help you choose!

Whether a ductless system will do the optimum job for you depends on your home.
