Lots of people come to us with room temperature issues. They’d like to find a solution that can appropriately fix the problem, but they want it to be a low-cost one.
Central air, or other ducted systems, work to cool (or heat) the air in your home, but they also do so in a way where you don’t have much control over where that air goes. Vacant rooms in the house are getting cooled (or heated) in just the same way as the other rooms.
For example, if you have a large section of the basement used for storage—your ducted system is working just as hard to cool that room as it is to cool your master bedroom! In today’s world, that means you are paying a lot more than you need to. Here’s where there may be other inefficiencies in your current system:
Thermostats attached to a ducted system are not always built for large homes or homes with rooms that naturally have competing air-flow or temperatures. For example, if you have a thermostat in your master study, if you were to change that temperature, it still affects people in the basement. The point is that the rooms are not treated as individually as they could be.
By nature of its very setup, ductwork tends to run through un-insulated spaces of the home or apartment. This of course means there is heat loss. If there is any leak or non-optimal installation of the ductwork, then you can have even greater wasted energy, passed along to you as greater expenses each month.
Fluctuations that translate to reduced efficiency.
In many cases, such a catch-all kind of cooling system is in fact idea. But for certain homes today, having one single speed compressor that can only run at full speed means that your system is only working at full capacity, or it’s not. In other words, your system is either working hard, or it acts “off.” This cycle may cause a bit of inefficiency in the home.
Compare this on-off cycle to how a ductless systems would work. A ductless system would be able to provide control at all times, rather than working in cycles. Even the slightest temperature change would be detected. That means no huge drafts of air or any fluctuations in how your system operates.
Think of a ductless system as a temperature-controlled system that allows you to still stay cool, but to do so in a way that can save you on your energy bill.
Ductless systems are quiet, easy to maintain, and quick for us to install. The technology is more efficient than conventional HVAC systems.
