Ductless air conditioning systems can be the perfect answer for that room that’s never quite cool enough, or for that new addition you’re building. It’s a low-maintenance and affordable option when more cooling is needed inside your home.
The ductless system works, obviously, with no ducts, as a traditional AC unit uses to carry air to vents. Instead, this system has an outdoor compressor unit located against the house or building. This makes it highly adaptable to many rooms and needs.
The inside unit is typically mounted up on a wall of the room where the cooling is needed. A small hole, with approximately a three-inch diameter, is cut to the outside. Lines providing electricity, drainage, and refrigerant can come from the outdoor unit. Sometimes these units are also called mini-splits, multi-splits, and variable refrigerant flow systems.
A heater is still needed, as the ductless AC only provides the air conditioning. You could still use your traditional furnace
with ducts, or you could install a ductless unit that’s a combination AC and heater (adding a heat pump
). This is the best option for a room that’s never quite cool or warm enough, no matter much you change the thermostat.
Homes are adding multiple units or “zones” throughout the entire house. If you have these multiple zones, you can control the temperature on a per-room basis.
While ductless AC systems require little maintenance, the installation definitely requires a professional. The certified technicians at Comfort Zone
have the expertise required and would be happy to answer any installation questions you may have.
You can also talk to Comfort Zone
about the health benefits to installing a ductless AC. Without needing ductwork, the health concerns
about what could be growing or blowing through your home via the ducts is eliminated.
If you’re constantly reaching for that glass of ice tea to help cool you down in one for more of your rooms, definitely take a look at a ductless AC. It could answer more than one need for you.
