Ductless Or Not Ductless? That’s The Question

People on couch

Happy Valley doesn’t look so happy when we look through the window these days. Though we can still hope that the temperatures will indeed rise a bit so that we can all enjoy the outside a bit more than just when going to and from work. We at Morrison Heating & Cooling hope as well that those gray days of winter leave for good and make room for warmer sunnier days. We’re very much looking forward to seeing the color green come back into our lives.

We can’t really blame you if you’re trying to stay warm and cozy, especially during the early hours of the morning, or right before heading off for work. Rest assured that you wouldn’t be the only one still using the heating even at this time of the year. That might also mean, though, that you could be needing a ductless heat pumps service in Happy Valley, OR, sooner than later since more usage means less lifespan basically for any sort of appliances.

Nonetheless, if you’re considering purchasing a new HVAC system at home, and if you’re also looking into a ductless alternative. We want to tell you all you need to know about it so that you make the right choice for your home and your family.

Why ductless and why not ductless HVAC in Happy Valley, OR?

Going ductless has a fair share of advantages and disadvantages. At the end of the day, it depends mostly on your needs and the space you and your family live in. They are more comfortable and easier to handle but if you were to do a survey you’d find very divided opinions.

A ductless heat pump or an entire HVAC system is basically a unit that can be hung on a wall inside your home while relying on an outside compressor that completes its work. Unlike the window AC units, a ductless system only requires a small hole on the wall, which not only makes it easier to install but also less prompt to suffer damage from weather conditions or even experience leakage. Another great advantage is how much less noise it makes when running. That alone is a good reason to consider going for a ductless system.

The greatest advantage that we see in a ductless HVAC system though, is how much more energy efficient it is compared to say central AC, which wastes up to 25% of the energy it needs, solely in ductwork. That might not sound like a lot at first but it will eventually be more than noticeable when your bills start going up.

Not all is good news though. The biggest disadvantages you might find in with the ductless systems are mainly the cost, the aesthetics and its performance in really cold weather. Not everybody likes to have a massive white box hanging from the wall disrupting the beautiful setting you had in your room, and on top of that, no one likes to pay a lot more for the device and the installation. It might come even in the future with how efficient it is, and if well maintained you might not have to spend a fortune in repairs. But in the end, you know what’s best for you and your family.

We at Morrison Heating & Cooling want your home to feel like home all year round. Whether you need an installation, repair or a ductless heat pumps service in Happy Valley, OR, our highly qualified team of professionals will be there for you. Give us a call today at (503) 683-7077
