Baltimore-area homeowners often overlook the potential of ductless heating and air conditioning technology. They tend to assume that central air is a one-size-fits-all proposition when it comes to heating and cooling their homes. But homes are all unique, and what works for one home won’t necessarily work for another.
This goes double for older homes, which were built at a time when building codes were different, and home builders would use different materials and methods than they do today. In many cases, these homes were retro-fitted with ducted systems that are lossy or inefficient for the space. That means some areas of the home may receive uneven heating and cooling than others.
This principle holds true for converted garages, basement renovations, attic living spaces, home additions, and more. Even in newer homes, duct losses can account for more than 30% of energy losses.
For all of these situations, ductless systems offer the perfect solution. They can be used to create personalized zoned heating and cooling, or they can be used to supplement an existing system. And when you consider that an ENERGY STAR ductless system can help homeowners save up to 18% of their energy costs a year, the math really starts to make sense.
