Know These Ductless Technology Myths

Know These Ductless Technology MythsDuctless heating and cooling systems provide a convenient way for homeowners to control the temperature in certain areas or rooms. However, there are several misconceptions about how they work. Find out the truth behind some common ductless technology myths.

Myth: Ductless systems require more maintenance than traditional HVAC systems.

Ductless systems often have designs that make them easier to care for than traditional heating and cooling systems. In some cases, homeowners can do their own maintenance on these systems rather than requiring routine maintenance. However, it’s still a good idea to consider scheduling professional maintenance if you’re unsure about how to care for this type of system.

Myth: Ductless systems can only be installed in newly built homes.

Ductless systems are ideal for homes that are being built, but that doesn’t mean they’re not available for existing homes. You can have a ductless system installed in your current home, such as when you need an HVAC system for a new addition or when you want to better heat or cool a certain area.

Myth: Ductless systems lower your indoor air quality.

One of the more common ductless technology myths is that these systems make the air quality in homes worse. In fact, these systems can improve your indoor air quality. The indoor air handlers in these systems have a filter that stops dust and other particles from blowing into your home. Just make sure that you change your filter every few months.

Myth: Ductless systems make a lot of noise.

Ductless heating and cooling systems are believed to be loud, but they actually make very little noise. Improvements in these systems, such as variable speed air handlers, have reduced the amount of noise they produce. When you have one of these systems installed in your home, it should not be loud enough to bother your next-door neighbors or interfere with your ability to sleep.
