Sewage backup can be a big hassle and inconvenience especially if it occurred on a public sewer.

“They had to rip out a lot of the floors in their own home, and it’s caused damage to their heating and cooling system. Bruce Richardson, the La Vergne city administrator, said a grease and sludge build up in the city sewer line caused the backup into the home, but because they couldn’t predict it, the city isn’t liable for the repairs.”

“The ease of installation, both commercially and residentially, was a running theme among exhibitors and extended beyond just a singular zone. ‘We’re seeing a big shift from single-zone spot cooling and heating solutions to whole-home or whole-building solutions,’ said Erin Mezle, director of marketing, Fujitsu General America Inc. ‘With ductless systems, contractors can install more systems in less time, helping them to meet deadlines, stay under budget, and satisfy customers.’”

The Benefits of a Ductless HVAC

The Carrier Enterprise highlighted the many advantages of a ductless HVAC. A/C And HVAC     

“Money plays a major role when consumers are contemplating an important purchase. You can begin by explaining that they will save money over time by deciding to install a ductless HVAC system. You can point out how ductless systems have the ability to run on much less power than ordinary systems because they are smaller and deliver air directly into a room.  By diving into more detail, you can explain that because they are ductless they also avoid energy losses that may come with ductwork of central forced air systems. It may also help to use some statistics such as, “These losses can be responsible for over 30% of energy consumption.” Overall you want your customer to understand that installing a ductless system essentially cuts costs and saves money over time.”

The Mommy Memorandum also enumerated the many reasons why homeowners should seriously consider a ductless HVAC System for their home.

One issue with HVAC systems containing ducts is the poor air quality after a certain time. Even if you are constantly changing air filters, there is always a period where the filters contain too many dust or allergens. In contrast, ductless systems have a complex filtration process that almost completely eliminates these allergens or dust from your home’s air.”

Ductless HVAC systems in the long run provide more savings, provide better indoor air quality and at the same time lesser carbon footprint compared to centralized air conditioning.
