How We Keep Ductless Homes Comfortable

Monday, December 26th, 2016

Air ducts are a necessity for most conventional home heating and cooling systems. Most of these are “forced-air” systems, meaning they use a blower fan and a set of air ducts to circulate cooled or warmed air throughout a building.

But not all homes are built with air ducts. Older homes, smaller spaces, or room additions in an existing home may be without ducts, and that means homeowners find varying solutions for heating and cooling—like portable AC and heat or noisy window units. But these are often inefficient and of a poor quality.

Ductless Split Heating Question: Is Ductless Right for My Home?

Monday, December 3rd, 2012

For new Pooler, GA homeowners or those replacing their heating and cooling system for the first time the amount of home comfort system options on the market can be overwhelming. There has been a lot of innovation in the field these past years, and even for professionals it can be difficult to keep track of. We’ve decided to provide you with some useful information about one of these option that you may not be familiar with, though have probably encountered before.

What is a Ductless Mini Split Heating System?

Whether you hear them called ductless split systems or ductless mini splits they are actually one and the same. A ductless split heating and cooling system is comprised of two main components: the condenser unit, which contains the noisy parts of the system, is installed outside. Individual air handlers are installed in your home and disperse air directly into the rooms in which they are installed. There is no ductwork required, as the two components are connected by a simple conduit contain power, refrigerant and sometimes drainage lines. Thermostats are used to regulate temperature and air delivery.

Benefits of Ductless Split Heating and Cooling Systems

You’ve probably seen split heating and cooling systems in hotel rooms before, with the air handler built into the wall. Because the air handling units are installed individually in your home and are not connected by ductwork it is easy to heat and cool rooms individually. All you need are multiple thermostats to control the temperature of each zone.

This added control that the creation of temperature zones provides can help you boost the energy efficiency of heating and cooling your home as well. After all, there’s no reason to heat or cool rooms that are not in use. If you’re cooking dinner you can turn down the heat in that zone only to take advantage of the oven’s radiant heat. Shortly before bed lower the temperatures downstairs and begin warming the bedrooms for the night. With the right thermostat you can start cutting down on your energy use and the cost of heating and cooling your home easily.

Ductless mini split systems are a great option for homes that cannot accommodate bulky ductwork or for those that simply do not want the added cost of a ductwork installation. Plus, with a ductless mini split heating system you do not experience the heat loss associated with ductwork systems. There’s no need to worry about damage to your ducts or poor insulation when you eliminate them from the equation.
