The Advantages of Going Ductless

Looking for an efficient and flexible way to control the temperature in your Pacific Northwest home? Consider going ductless.

Air duct leaks often go unnoticed and can waste up to 30 percent of your home’s energy consumption, according to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). Ductless mini-splits eliminate these losses while providing all-in-one heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) services.

How Do Ductless Systems Heat and Cool My Home?

Ductless systems are a type of heat pump or air conditioner. The outdoor compressor connects to the indoor component via a refrigerant line. You can adjust the temperature to your liking with a remote control, or on your smartphone. Here are a few more details about what each part does:

Indoor Component

The indoor module, a small rectangular fixture, mounts to your wall. Its internal blowers help to circulate conditioned air into the space that it’s in. It also contains a reusable filter that needs to be cleaned about once every three months.

When cycling, the indoor component operates much more quietly than a furnace or air conditioner. In fact, new owners often comment that they can’t tell when it’s on.

Outdoor Compressor

The outdoor compressor is a small metal box with a fan. On a summer’s day, you can put your hand up to it and feel the hot air—all of the heat and humidity being removed from your home.

During wintertime, the process works in reverse: concentrated heat and humidity from the outdoors cycles into your home via the refrigerant line to create warmth indoors.

What Are the Advantages?

Ductless units have proved to be a hit with Bryant Northwest customers. Here are a few reasons why they may be right for you:

  • They are efficient.
    As previously mentioned, duct losses are a financial pain for many households around the country. When you make the upfront investment, ductless units can help you save long-term on your energy expenses.
  • You can have it your way.
    Ever set your thermostat to the perfect temperature, then go upstairs, and it feels hot and stuffy? By installing ductless units in multiple parts of your home, you can enjoy fine-tuned temperature control that suits your comfort needs. Additionally, you can save on energy bills by only heating or cooling rooms that are in use. It’s a win-win all around.
