It’s time to say goodbye to ductwork and all the maintenance (and space) that it demands. Understanding how these new ductless systems work is important, and because you’re reading this post, it’s safe to assume that going ductless has been on your mind lately. If you’re curious how it works and if it’s the right HVAC in Shreveport for your home and family, then this is perfect: we’re going to clarify everything.
Ducts Are Gone, Individual Heads Are Here
Right now, if you have a central heating and cooling system, they use ductwork as a delivery system for conditioned air. Those ducts snare through your ceiling and walls, leading to vents in each room. With ductless heads, they’re essentially standalone air conditioners that don’t need ductwork to operate.
They’re as powerful (in some cases, even more powerful) than your existing HVAC unit and have more than capable heating abilities. They also act as air conditioners, so both functions are wrapped into one unit. Adding multiple individual heads allows you to control your comfort in a more granular way than you’re used to.
Contour Comfort Depending on Room or “Zone” in Your Home
Think of your living room as one zone of your home, then your bedrooms as another, and so on. You don’t need to have a ductless head in each room, but you can have more than a single head and strategically position them throughout your home so they provide the best possible effect.
If you enjoy when your bedroom is warm during the day, but you don’t need that same level of warmth in the living room, that’s okay. You can set different temperatures on individual heads to create intentional varying temperatures throughout your home. This helps you control heating and cooling costs much more efficiently than before.
