The Hidden Environmental Benefits of Ductless Heating and Cooling
June 18, 2018
Homeowners who are interested in installing a ductless heating and cooling system, and those who already have, are probably aware of the environmental benefits of these systems. From energy efficiency to improved air quality, ductless heating and cooling options allow homeowners to feel good about their whole-home comfort.
But did you know that there are hidden environmental benefits of ductless heating and cooling systems? Not only are these systems quiet, easy to control, and efficient, they also carry environmental benefits that you might not be aware of.
Many Manufacturers Are Dedicated to Environmentally-Friendly Practices
Not only are ductless mini-splits energy-efficient, many manufacturers of these pieces of home machinery are dedicated to lowering their overall environmental impact and work hard to be future-forward companies dedicated to employee and community well-being.
For example, some manufacturers utilize energy-saving technologies to limit the amount of CO2 they emit, while others improve air quality by decreasing the number of harmful emissions during the manufacturing process.
Ductless Heating and Cooling Can Protect Your Indoor Air During Wildfire Season
Although we’d rather avoid wildfires altogether, they are now a common occurrence in the Pacific Northwest. These wildfires often emit concentrated levels of harmful air particles both outside and inside homes creating respiratory issues for homeowners and their loved ones.
A ductless heat pump can help to filter the air and reduce the amount of particulate, but we still recommend that the you add a good air purification system unit for additional purification such as iWave purifiers for ductless minisplits.
Ductless Systems Extract Heat
Traditional centralized heating and cooling systems create cool air using energy, meaning that a lot of energy is used during times of the year when heating and cooling systems are working at full blast. In contrast, ductless heating and cooling systems extract heat from the existing interior environment, making them energy-efficient and cost-effective.
Not only are ductless heating and cooling systems an environmentally beneficial choice, they can be a socially conscious one, too. Fujitsu, a ductless heating and cooling system manufacturer, has implemented environmental education activities that create a nurturing environment in the workplace and encourages employees to make more environmentally conscious choices.
