After inspecting my air conditioning unit, my knowledgeable HVAC contractor recommended I purchase a new system. He discussed the pros and cons of installing different sizes of HVAC units with me.

How A Ductless HVAC Might Improve The Air Quality In Your Home And Ease Your Allergy Symptoms

by Jamie Shaw

If you have allergies, asthma, or another respiratory condition, you know how important it is to control your living space to keep out allergens and to maintain a stable climate. One thing that might help is to install a ductless HVAC. If your current HVAC is old, you might switch to a ductless HVAC when you put in a new system, but you can also add a ductless system on a home addition or basement or garage conversion. Here's how one of these climate-control systems might help you breathe easier.

You Have Better Control Over Temperature

A ductless system gives you better control over the temperature in your space. That's because the blower is mounted on the wall so the air blows directly into the room rather than being sent through ducts. Plus, you can have multiple blowers in your home. This allows you to keep your bedroom and part of the house where you spend the most time in a comfortable range for you, while other family members can have a temperature that's comfortable for them.

You may find colder and drier air to be best for you while it makes the rest of your family too chilly. You'll have the ability to customize the temperature to your needs with a ductless blower in your room.

The Air Won't Pick Up Allergens In The Ducts

A ductless HVAC is much more compact than a typical central HVAC. That means there are fewer places to collect dust and mold. Dust and mold are two allergy irritants that lower the air quality in your home. A traditional HVAC system has ducts, and these ducts collect dust over the years and then blow the dust out of the registers to float through the air in your home.

In addition to dust, pollen, pet dander, and even mold spores can circulate through a central HVAC system and the ducts to irritate your respiratory system. A ductless system doesn't have ducts at all, so a big potential source of irritants is eliminated.

A ductless system is easy to use too. A ductless HVAC can both heat and cool your house. It's easy to control by using a remote, and it's easy to maintain. You'll need to clean the filter on a scheduled basis and have the unit serviced by an HVAC technician at least once a year like any other air conditioner or furnace.

With a ductless system, you not only get improved air quality in your home that might help you breathe a little easier, you also get improved climate control and a system that is easy for you to use and maintain.
