There are many benefits of installing a multi-zone ductless system in your home, including the opportunity to save money on your energy bill.
During the cold Boston winters, you rely on your ductless system to provide heat to every nook and cranny of your home. And when the temperatures heat up during the summer months, you kick on the cool air and enjoy the environment.
So, What is a Multi-Zone Ductless System?
There are two questions here:
- What is a ductless system?
- What is a multi-zone ductless system?
A ductless HVAC system is one that warms and cools your home through individual air handlers, as opposed to ductwork.
Taking this one step further, a multi-zone ductless system is the same thing, with the primary difference being that you can set up multiple zones in your home.
Here are some of the benefits of a multi-zone ductless system:
- Choose your zones to ensure that everyone in your home is comfortable
- Easy to add new zones to your home, such as if you finish a basement space or attic
- Less strain on your system
Can You Save Money?
Along with the benefits above, a multi-zone ductless system positions you to save money on your energy bill.
According to the United States Department of Energy, a zoning system can save you up to 30 percent on your energy bill. Even if you don’t save that much, you’ll still keep hundreds of dollars in your pocket over the course of a year.
Here’s how a multi-zone ductless system saves you money:
- Built for efficiency: Every last component of a multi-zone ductless system is built for efficiency, ranging from the indoor air handlers to the outdoor unit. And with fewer parts than more traditional HVAC systems, there is less chance of something going wrong.
- No air leaks: When you rely on ductwork to transport air throughout your home, it’s possible you could lose some of it inside your walls. You still have to pay for air that doesn’t reach your living space, despite the fact that it’s not doing you any good. That’s a bad deal for you, the homeowner.
- Independent control: For example, if you have a zone that controls guest bedrooms that no one uses in the winter, you can turn the temperature down. Doing so reduces the amount of time that the zone is in use, which saves you money on your energy bill.
Note: just the same as a traditional HVAC system, you can connect your multi-zone ductless system to a smart thermostat. This allows you to set the temperature according to your schedule, such as turning the heat up at night and down during the day (when you’re at work).
With so many benefits, including the ability to save on your energy bill, there’s no wondering why multi-zone ductless systems are becoming more popular among Boston homeowners.
