Keeping your home or business cool in the summer and warm in the winter can be a tricky and sometimes expensive thing. The range of solutions on offer can be confusing and you may not know what are the best heating and cooling systems for the space you are hoping to manage. Ductless heating and air conditioning can be the solution for a home or business looking to replace or install a new system.
Currently the American HVAC industry generates about $71 billion in revenue per year and has grown at an estimated rate of 4.1% annually per year between 2009 and 2014. The demand for heating and air conditioning units continues to grow and there are now more than 85,000 heating and air conditioning contractors and related HVAC businesses in the United States.
Ductless heating and air conditioning (HVAC) offers a flexible solution that can cater to a variety of needs, from a full new installation in an extension or new build to replacing existing ducted forced air systems. Such ductless systems can also lower the total cost of ownership because the systems are more efficient than many other options. They are also smaller and therefore use less power, making them cost-efficient and better for the environment. Integrating a programmable thermostat into an HVAC system can yield savings of $180 a year, while ensuring that adequate and properly installed ventilation is in place can cut energy bills by between 10 and 12%.
Part of those savings result from proper and regular maintenance of the heating and cooling systems so that they function at optimal level. For example, all home owners should ensure that an HVAC unit filter is changed every three months or so to help cut down on allergens, dust, and dirt, and that you have your HVAC unit inspected regularly. Initial installation is also important as improper installation can cost you up to 30% more on your energy bills. If you regularly and properly maintain your system, it will last you between 12 and 15 years and continue to offer the energy savings and other benefits that such systems are known for. Whether the HVAC is for a home or business, the ductless heating and cooling systems are good fits for flexibility and cost savings.
