Nestled in the heart of Montana, Helena is no stranger to cooler temperatures during most of the year. While there are plenty of reasons to love living in the area, efficiently managing indoor air temperatures can be a real challenge. Ductless heating and air solutions present many local homeowners with an opportunity to gain greater control over their indoor climate and eliminate uncomfortable hot or cold spots.
The Basics of Temperature Variability
Hot and cold spots represent tangible temperature variability in the air inside your home. Several factors can contribute to this problem, but poor air circulation is often the main culprit. Fans, additional ducts, vents or upgrades to the central HVAC system can help improve this issue, but these systems alone are rarely able to eliminate hot or cold spots.
Zoning to Address Hot and Cold Spots
One of the chief advantages of ductless AC is the ability to zone the home into multiple areas based on conditioning needs. This allows homeowners to focus their energy investment into heating or cooling the areas that matter, rather than pumping heat into every corner of the home just to make the bedroom more comfortable. Ductless units don’t necessarily have to replace existing systems, so they can also supplement an existing HVAC setup.
Other Reasons to Go Ductless
Not everyone is a fan of how the ductless mini-split looks, but these units are generally unobtrusive and have flexible positioning to minimize aesthetic impact. They also have a lot to offer in terms of home design by eliminating the need for ducts or an external unit outside of the home. Ductless systems equipped with advanced filtration can also help improve the indoor air quality of the entire home.
Ductless systems are very effective at addressing hot and cold spots, but only if they are properly matched to the home’s needs and installed correctly. Check out Superior Heating & Cooling, Inc.’s innovative solutions to learn more about the modern HVAC options available for any kind of home.
