How to Go Ductless
Are you planning to add an addition to your Mukwonago home—but you’re worried about extending the ductwork?
Or have you recently purchased an older home without ductwork and need a heating and cooling solution?
Consider going ductless!
A ductless system uses an air handler instead of ductwork to distribute air throughout your Wisconsin home. That means you can install a ductless unit just about anywhere! You can install a ductless system in your recently converted garage, newly finished attic, or loft.
But how do you go ductless? Midwest Heating & Cooling is here to walk you through the process and all the benefits of going ductless. You can always rely on our experts for practical and sustainable heating and cooling solutions you can trust.
How to Go Ductless in Your Home
A ductless unit pairs an outdoor condenser with one or more indoor air handlers. A conduit connecting the two runs the refrigerant and condensate lines. Central heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems provide heating and cooling throughout your entire home, while a ductless unit can provide heating and cooling in a specific area.
When our Midwest Heating & Cooling professionals install a ductless system for you, we will install the air handlers in the areas of your home where you want to target heating and cooling.
Decide if you want to go completely ductless with an air handler in every room of your Mukwonago home—or supplement your central HVAC system by adding a ductless unit to a specific area that could use extra heating and cooling, such as a bonus room, sunroom, or converted attic space.
Our licensed and trained experts can mount air handlers to your walls or ceilings. Let’s discuss your ductless goals and come up with a plan tailored to meet your needs and the needs of your Mukwonago home!
Benefits of Ductless Systems
There are dozens of reasons ductless systems are great, including:
- They are extremely efficient: Ductless systems are energy efficient. And unlike traditional central HVAC systems, they do not lose any energy through ductwork since there is no ductwork required!
Traditional systems can lose up to 30 percent of energy through leaks and tears in ductwork, according to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). Imagine how much money you spend on wasted energy with a conventional HVAC system!
- The installation process is simple:Ductless systems are easy to install and can be up and running in a matter of hours. Our experts can quickly set up your ductless system so that it operates efficiently and provides you with many years of comfort.
- They promote healthierindoor air quality: Central heating and air conditioning systems use ductwork to distribute air through vents. That means any dirt, dust, debris, or pet dander lingering inside your air ducts could circulate in the air throughout your home. Since ductless units don’t use air ducts to distribute air, you can enjoy fresher and healthier air.
Additionally, ductless systems come with excellent filtration systems—removing airborne particles that can trigger asthma or allergy symptoms.
- They allow you to maximize your comfort: With a ductless system, you enjoy consistent comfort right where you want it—and without impacting the temperature in other areas of your home. Ductless systems are innovative and quiet, and give you greater control over your heating and cooling needs.
Going ductless is an excellent option when you want to target certain areas in your home that could use additional heating and cooling support. Be sure to speak with our experts to get started today!
