DUCTLESS Cooling and Heating Systems
If you live in an older home without air conditioning, you might be dreading the summer. Homes constructed before central heating and cooling systems became popular are not designed for the network of air ducts newer heating and cooling systems require. Remodeling an older home to accommodate ductwork may not be practical if city codes or homeowner associations limit the changes that can be made to the home’s historical architectural style. So, what can you do? Don’t sweat it! A Ductless or Duct Free heating and cooling system, also know as a Mini Split, is the answer to beating the summer heat.
First, you’re probably wondering what a duct free system is and how it works. Click here for a video explanation. Like any standard heating and cooling system, a ductless unit has both an indoor and outdoor component.
Individual head units are installed into the desired rooms in your home to help you control the temperature and your comfort level. Because ductless systems let you control each room’s environment, the entire household won’t be disturbed when a unit cycles on or off. Ductless systems are adaptable to almost any comfort need and any home’s design and configuration.
A ductless system substantially raises the energy efficiency level by eliminating the ductwork. Because the heat pumps used in ductless systems move heat rather than generate it, they’re far more energy efficient that conventional heating systems like furnaces and boilers. Ductless systems include controls for each individual air handler. Most systems come with remote controls that allow you to adjust temperatures without leaving the comfort of your couch or bed.
If you’re living in an older home, it’s time to get rid of the outdated and ugly window units and upgrade to a duct-free heating and cooling system. These systems can be installed in one day, and are energy efficient and super quiet. What’s not to love? Don’t spend another summer suffering through boiling temperatures and an old HVAC system.
