Why Choose a Ductless Air Conditioning Unit?

The ductless system is a great option for cooling homes that don’t have ductwork. Hurley & David HVAC technicians can assist you in choosing the best size system for your home, and will take care of the installation and maintenance.

Ductless systems are also utilized in older homes as well as new constructions that don’t have ductwork. This type of air conditioning is energy efficient and efficient.

There is no need for ductwork

Ductless air conditioning is a great option for homes that do not have ductwork installed or for rooms that are difficult to serve with traditional ducting. A ductless AC system, in contrast to central AC systems which use an attic unit and ducts for distribution of air throughout the house, utilizes separate indoor units that are connected to a condenser outside. They can be hung on the ceiling or wall and provide a variety of design and function.

A ductless system isn’t just easier to install, but also more efficient. ENERGY STAR certified ductless systems will help you save energy by heating and cooling the rooms that are actually in use. This is a great way to cut down on waste and maintain your home at a comfortable temperature for everyone who lives there.

These systems are also very easy to maintain. The compressor and evaporator units can be cleaned by simply washing the filters and running a defroster periodically. Regular maintenance by technicians will ensure that the system is operating as smoothly and efficiently as it is possible for as long as it can.

Many people prefer to use ductless systems instead of their traditional central AC systems. They are a great way to add an extra space or convert a garage or basement into living space or increase the temperature of a room which is often too cold or hot.

Another advantage of a ductless system is that they are much more cost-effective than modern high-efficiency, ductless systems. These systems can save you hundreds each year by obtaining the energy STAR certification. These systems are even more efficient when they are combined with a heat-pump which cools and heats the home.

When deciding whether an air-conditioning HVAC system is right for your needs, it’s important to speak with a reputable HVAC company. Garden City HVAC’s expert technicians can answer all your questions and help pick the best system that will meet your requirements. Contact them now to begin!

Energy efficient

The fact that ductless systems are more efficient than conventional cooling and heating systems is a major reason to consider them. These ENERGY STAR qualified systems are designed to reduce energy usage and save you money by actively cooling only the areas of your home that are used. This makes them ideal for homes with a new addition or garage, or that have rooms that are difficult to cool and heat using ductwork.

Ductless systems make use of alternating current electricity to power their equipment, which converts it to direct current, which is then directed through the air handlers inside your home. The air handlers themselves operate with a less power than what is needed to cool a home with ductwork because they don’t have to work as hard to move and control temperatures. This allows the system to attain higher SEER ratings than a conventional AC system that doesn’t come with a air ductless unit.

Additionally, it only takes approximately 3 inches of space on your floors, walls and ceilings to run all the necessary lines from an outdoor unit to every indoor air handler. This is much less than the 12 inches of ducting utilized by the typical HVAC system.

Each air handler is independent, so you can cool your bedrooms while keeping the living space at a higher temperature. This will help save energy because it won’t be chilled. Each air handler has its own programmable thermostat, which allows you to fine-tune the temperature according to each family member’s preferences.

As the economy continues to recover many people are thinking about the possibility of adding a gym to their home, bedroom, or other home improvement. If you decide to do this, your current heating and cooling system could be overwhelmed as you try to regulate temperatures in an extra part of your home without ductwork. Installing a ductless mini split system in these areas will allow you to manage the temperature in a way that is independent and stop your home from becoming over-cooled or overheated. This can aid in reducing your energy bills as well as reduce your carbon footprint.

Easy to Install

Ductless air conditioners are fairly easy to install, particularly when you work with an HVAC professional. They are usually placed on top of an exterior wall, and the installer needs to cut a tiny hole in the drywall and then feed the piping through. The ductless system is attached to the house by using clamps to secure the piping, and then fixed to the wall.

The cooling capacity of a single ductless system can vary from 9,000 to 24,000 BTUs. This means that it is able to cool rooms of up to 400 square feet or more. If you have a large house with multiple stories, you might require more than one ductless unit to cool your entire home.

Certain ductless systems have multiple indoor units that are connected to the outdoor unit. Each unit has its thermostat, so that the occupants of each room can select the temperature they prefer. This is a great method to achieve true cooling zoning at your office or home.

It is extremely beneficial to be able to regulate the temperature of each area of your house, especially when you have several family members who have different preferences for temperature. With an air conditioning system that is ductless you can only cool those rooms that are in use and save money by not cooling rooms that aren’t in use.

Contact us today if you are considering upgrading to an AC system that is ductless or adding air-conditioning for your gym or garage. We’ll assist you in selecting the best ductless AC system for your needs and handle all installation and maintenance.

To get the most value from your ductless system requires proper maintenance, including regular air filter replacements, as well as periodic cleaning and inspection of the evaporator coils and condenser unit. Our technicians can help you make a maintenance schedule that’s appropriate for your ductless unit and the space it serves. You can also learn more about the maintenance of your ductless system by reading our ductless maintenance manual.

Save Money

Ductless air conditioning systems are usually less expensive to operate than traditional AC systems. They also eliminate the potential loss of energy caused by leaky ductwork, which could greatly reduce the efficiency of your AC system. This will help reduce your energy costs throughout the year. You can further minimize your energy consumption by selecting a ENERGY STAR qualified system. A ductless system with an increased SEER rating will be more efficient, meaning it will use less energy to cool your home.

Another way ductless systems can help you save money is through providing zoned comfort. By using a remote control you can adjust the temperature for each room of your home. This allows you to keep the living room and bedrooms at different temperatures, without affecting other rooms of your home. This feature is especially useful for families with pets or children who spend the majority of their time in a single room.

A ductless system functions in the same way as a heat pump but without air ducts. The indoor unit (also called an air handler) is able to blow air over the evaporator coils, which are filled with refrigerant. The refrigerant is able to absorb heat from the air and then removed outside via a small gap in your ceiling or wall. The air handler is mounted in many different places, including garages, attics, or even a home addition.

Mini-split ductless systems are used as standalone units or combined to provide cooling for the entire home. They are great for retrofitting an old home or adding air conditioning, and for renovations or new construction in which there isn’t enough space or budget to install air ducts. They’re also a great choice for homes that have low ceilings like a garage or attic.

A single-zone ductless unit is usually enough to cool a small home and connects only one indoor air handler with the outdoor unit. Multi-zone systems can connect up to eight indoor air handlers via one condenser. This lets you individually control the temperature of each room, which is especially beneficial for homes with large spaces.
