Keeping your Bessemer, Alabama, home comfortable and efficient are probably two of your top concerns. One of the biggest consumers of energy in your household is your HVAC system, which makes finding the most energy-efficient option a critical decision. If you’re ready to replace your current AC system and are trying to find the most efficient option, you may want to consider installing a ductless system. Check out some of the ways a ductless system can help improve the energy efficiency of your home.
You Can Control Your Energy Use Through Zones
With a ductless system, you can set up individual cooling zones throughout your home. This will help to improve the comfort in your home and your energy efficiency. If some people in your home prefer a different temperature in their rooms, you can set different temperatures in each zone. Plus, this helps ensure you’re not using excess energy in rooms that don’t need it.
You Will Have Less Energy Loss
In a traditional system, your unit will be connected to ducts and vents that will transport air throughout your home. Often, over time, these ducts, seals, and connections can become damaged or worn, causing some of the conditioned air to escape. The more air that is lost before it reaches your rooms, the harder your system will have to work to cool those spaces down. The harder your system works, the more energy it will use, causing your utility bills to soar.
You Can Save on Energy in Rooms You Don’t Use
You can create individual temperature zones in your home to keep lesser used rooms at a warmer temperature. This helps prevent wasting energy in rooms that don’t need to be cooled down or kept at as low of a temperature.
