Though air ducts are often the most common way to distribute air throughout a home, it’s not always the best option for all. If you are looking to add extra warmth to a room without adding extra air ducts, here’s what you should know:

Ductless Heating and Cooling

A ductless mini-split system is a great way to add warmth or cool air to a room that doesn’t have existing ductwork. Lower purchase costs, straightforward installation and easier repair and upkeep make ductless heating and cooling an attractive option. Reducing the strain placed on the home's central heating and air also means that maintaining a more comfortable home won't be as expensive.

Allergens and Indoor Air Quality

Dirty vents and clogged air ducts can lower your indoor air quality and be a risk to your health, especially for those who suffer from allergies or respiratory ailments. Ductless heating and cooling appliances eliminate many of the issues caused by dirty vents or clogged air ducts and can go a long way towards improving indoor air quality.

Upgrading Existing HVAC Systems

For those whose current plumbing and the HVAC system may not be meeting their needs, choosing to replace existing appliances or investing in a brand new climate-control system is not always the best solution. Ductless HVAC solutions may provide a more flexible and affordable solution.
