Ductless HVAC offers heating and cooling where traditional systems just aren’t suitable. If you have a garage you want to work in all year long, a ductless heating and cooling unit is a perfect option. Also, if you have an older home without ductwork, these may be the solution you need.
You won’t need to install new ducts. Additionally, you avoid the dirt, pollen, and mold ducts can carry throughout the home. NATE-certified Estes Service technicians have the knowledge to help you decide what options work best to solve your heating and cooling needs.
Where Are Ductless Heating and Cooling Units Used?
Ductless heating and cooling units are often installed where portable air conditioning units or electric baseboard heating would be used. New additions to a home, sunrooms, bonus rooms, working garages, or an existing house without ducts are all places where heating and cooling is a challenge for homeowners. Ductless HVAC systems solve this issue, providing comfort in struggling areas of your home.
How Do Ductless Heating and Cooling Units Work?
Ductless heating and cooling units consist of one or more indoor mounted units connected to an outdoor compressor. Electrical and refrigerant lines connect the units through a small three-inch hole on an exterior wall.
The lines run from the indoor mounted unit to the compressor outside. The small hole ensures minimal leakage and reduces security and noise issues.
These systems are extremely energy-efficient, unlike forced-air systems. Traditional “ducted” systems often lose up to 30 percent of the heating and cooling energy traveling through them.
Meanwhile, an ENERGY STAR ductless model can save a homeowner up to 30 percent on heating and cooling energy bills.
Many of the units have inverter-driven compressors, which speed up or slow down based on the needs of the system.
In a regular HVAC system, the furnace or air conditioner shut down completely between cycles using more energy and costing more money.
Facts to Consider
Ductless heating and cooling units give support to any room with specific heating and cooling problems. Therefore, they provide ideal temperatures to a specific zone without interfering with the current HVAC system.
Because they are so specifically targeted, the homeowner can be very comfortable in hard to heat or cool zones within the home. The homeowner has options which include multiple indoor units to work independently, giving optimum comfort. Keep in mind, equipment may be more expensive upfront, while you will recover costs through saved energy over the years.
