Dustless Vs Ducted Heat Pump

A heat pump is an excellent option if you’re in need of energy-efficient and safe heating and cooling. However, there are some things you need to know before choosing a system.


If you want to cool or heat your home without the use of ductwork, a ductless air conditioning system may be your best option. It costs less than regular hvac heat pumps and allows you to target specific rooms within your home. Ductless systems can also be paired with air purification filters to help keep your indoors clean and comfortable. These air purifiers remove dust, pollen and other allergens from the air to improve your health. The cost of a ductless a/s can vary depending on the size and type of system you choose. You’ll need to consider your climate zone BTU guide before selecting a system.


Ducted systems require ductwork that pushes air throughout the house. This means you have to consider where you would like your ductwork to be installed, and whether there are any other existing ducts that need to be reconnected. The ductwork also needs to be cleaned and maintained on a regular basis, which can be time-consuming and expensive. Additionally, air leaks and other issues with ductwork can decrease the efficiency of your heat pump. Alternatively, wall-mounted mini-splits do not need to be connected with ductwork and can be installed in any room you want. A small hole is drilled through the wall, line sets and cables are run through, and drains are fitted. This allows the installation to be much simpler and carries a lower labor cost than ducted systems.


Almost half of the energy used in your home goes toward heating and cooling, so it makes sense to go for an efficient unit. In addition to reducing your monthly bills, you can also improve the air quality in your house and help the environment with a greener heating and cooling system. Ductless a/s are the most efficient systems on the market, offering up to 30% energy savings over conventional heat pumps. These ductless units use less energy to push treated air through a system of insulated, tightly sealed ductwork and deliver the conditioned air directly to where it needs to be. Because ductless systems do not rely on a complicated system of ductwork, installation is quick and easy. As a result, installation costs can be greatly reduced. In some cases, a ductless heat pump can be installed in a single day. This is a significant difference from the weeks and days it can take to install a ducted system.


As with any mechanical device, your heat pump requires periodic maintenance to keep it running smoothly. This includes an annual tune-up and cleaning the air ducts every 3-5 years. The ducts are the most challenging component to maintain, as they need to be cleaned to prevent mold and mildew growth. The ducts also must be properly sealed to ensure energy efficiency. Leaky ducts can result in higher utility bills, lower air quality, and a less efficient system overall. Fortunately, your local HVAC expert at All Brands Heating & Cooling can handle the job for you.
