Ductless HVAC Heating Options
What is a ductless HVAC system? As the name implies, a “ductless” heating and cooling system target specific areas of your home—known as zoned heating and cooling—without the need to install duct work in your walls. As a less invasive heating and cooling system, these units can be mounted high on a wall or ceiling in any room. They are then connected to an outside unit by small cables and a refrigerant line running through a small hole in the wall.
For homeowners looking for simply zoned comfort solutions, ductless HVAC systems are a flexible, high-efficiency alternative to conventional heating and cooling systems.
These units can be pre-set to run automatically or operate remotely, heat or cool one room or several, depending on the dustless system you choose.
Why Ductless? Where can it be Used?
Ductless is a great heating and cooling alternative system if your home does not have a central unit or, if you recently built an addition onto your home or built a new home and do not want to run duct work through the walls, ductless provides efficient heating and cooling at an economical operational cost.
Mini Splits and Multi Split Systems
We provide both mini split & multi-split systems. See the benefits each system provides below.
- Connects one indoor unit to an outdoor unit.
- Installs simply and unobtrusively to buildings with no need for ductwork.
- Delivers heating and cooling to single area of the home
- Provides a simple solution for one-room additions.
- Connects multiple indoor units to a single outdoor unit.
- Installs a complete HVAC system to multiple zone interior spaces with no need for ductwork.
- Provides individual control of room temperature settings.
- Enables indoor units of different styles and capacities in one system for customized solutions
Installation Flexibility. A ductless heating and cooling system are designed to target specific areas of your home.
Cost Savings. These units are smaller than traditional forced-air systems, operating on less power. And since they are targeted to specific rooms in your home where you live the most, you are not continuously heating and cooling nonessential areas of your home and running up utility bills. Also, by installing a ductless system, you may also be eligible for a tax or utility rebate.
Improves Indoor Air Quality. Traditional air duct systems require periodic cleaning to remove dust, pollen, bacteria and other allergens. Just look at your furnace's filter to see the amount of dust that is circulating in the ductwork. Ductless heating and cooling utilize a multi-stage filtration system that drastically reduces the circulation of dust and nasty allergens.
Quick and Easy Installation. Ductless systems are far less invasive than traditional ducted systems, which can take days or even weeks to install. And what a mess! Conversely, ductless heating and cooling systems can be up and running in as little as one day depending on the number of rooms targeted and how many outside units needed.
Lowers Your Carbon Footprint. Ductless systems are far more energy efficient because of their zoning capabilities, which not only shrinks your home's carbon footprint but also saves money. These systems also function by using the latest advances in chemistry technology, reducing harmful effects on the environment. R410A is the refrigerant used by most ductless systems and is known for its zero ozone depletion potential, meaning your system will have less impact on the environment over the lifetime of its operation.
