Ductless Systems

You may have heard about ductless heating and cooling systems, but do you know about their advantages?

A Flexible Solution

The most common HVAC systems are central air conditioners and heat pumps that use ducts to deliver conditioned air throughout a building.

Ductless systems are more flexible than traditional systems, because ductless systems don’t use ductwork. All that’s needed is a small outdoor unit and one or more indoor units, along with access to electricity and a place to mount the units. Ductless systems can be installed in either new or existing construction.

More Affordable

Traditional heating and cooling units can run inefficiently for a number of reasons, costing you money in lost energy. The actual units are larger than a ductless system, also costing you more money overall, because they naturally consume more power. Also, conditioned air can be lost through gaps in the ductwork before it ever reaches its intended destination, illustrating yet another example of lost energy for which you also pay.

Ductless systems are smaller than traditional HVAC systems, which means they use less power. In addition, the temperature-controlled air of a ductless system is delivered directly into a room instead of throughout an entire building. This means that you don’t heat or cool rooms that aren’t occupied. Translation: less needed power, less money spent.

Improved Indoor Air Quality

Did you know the quality of indoor air is typically lower than that of outdoor air? Ductwork collects dust, allergens, bacteria, as well as many other contaminants. Traditional forced air systems blow air directly through these contaminants and consequently throughout your house.

Ductless systems offer multi-stage filtration that greatly reduces this type of air contamination and creates a healthier indoor environment.

Easy to Install

Ducted systems can take several weeks to install. They interrupt daily life in the home and can take up valuable real estate due to their size.

Conversely, ductless systems can be installed in as little as a day, depending on the number of units required. The pipes required for the systems only dictate a three-inch hole that makes them easier to integrate into a building.

“Wow! Vailes is top notch! What an amazing company to work with. From the first phone call with Samantha, to meeting Rory for the initial walk-through and estimate to the final installation, every one I spoke with and dealt with – highly professional, friendly, caring, patient, thorough.. The list goes on. Samantha is beyond helpful and so sweet and friendly to work with. Rory truly knows his product and what he is doing. He patiently answered every question (and I asked a lot!) I had about the potential ( at that time) installation. I decided to go with Vailes not only because they had come highly recommended but after meeting and talking to them I knew this was the company I wanted to work with. Rory, Blake, and Harrison treated me and my house with a great deal of respect and made me feel like I was their number one customer and priority, even though I know, in the middle of a HOT summer, I was not their only customer!! The job was completed quickly and efficiently. There was an issue with one unit during the installation and they have been on top of it and keep in contact with me regarding when it will be fixed. If you are looking for high quality people and equipment, Vailes is the one to go to. I only wish I had done this sooner! Thank you to everyone at Vailes because now I come home to a cool and comfortable house and I know come winter it will be warm and cozy!”
