When you are thinking about revamping your home heating and air conditioning system, ductless split systems are a good option to consider. Particularly if this is the first time you are investing in a full home system, ductless systems can help make the installation process much quicker and painless.
Here at Bob’s Heating & Air Conditioning, we have been installing these types of systems for our Greater Seattle, WA and Tacoma Metropolitan area customers for quite some time. We can easily help you evaluate your options in order to determine which system is right for you.
Did you know that ductless air conditioning systems can be much more efficient than central air conditioning units? With ductless air conditioning units you can choose which rooms get cooled, similar to a zone cooling system. Ductless air conditioning systems also have received higher SEER ratings with recent models. Central air conditioning units also have to work harder because they have to push cooled air through ducts, which sometimes remove some of coolness from the air.
What Are Ductless Splits?
Ductless split home heating and cooling systems are made up of two types of components. There is an outdoor compressor that supplies the indoor units with coolant. The indoor units, in turn, take in air from the room, cool it, and then return it to circulation.
Benefits of Ductless Split AC Units
There are quite a few benefits of opting for ductless split air conditioning and heating systems compared to their ducted alternatives. The details of your home and its layout will have a lot to do with determining the type of system you will benefit most from. And your particular home temperature control priorities will play a role as well.
High Efficiency Air Conditioning
One of the first benefits of ductless split systems that people notice is that they are quite energy efficient when compared with some of the other options out there. These systems are designed to make the most of a little in every way, and energy usage is certainly one of them. No matter what size system you wind up with, you will be quite happy with the impact it has on your monthly energy bills.
These ductless split heating and cooling systems are also compact and easy to install. Their original purpose was to provide superior climate control to buildings and homes that could not accommodate the system of ducts that more traditional ducted systems require.
Both the outdoor and indoor parts of ductless split systems boast a slim profile and require minimal adjustments to install. Putting a duct system into your home can be a lengthy and invasive procedure, and something you simply may not have room for.
The installation of a ductless system, on the other hand, is quick and relatively painless. The only connection between outdoor and indoor units needed is a small channel for running refrigerant lines, which is a far cry from an entire duct system.
Greater AC Control
Many central air and heating systems that utilize ducts offer you very little control over which areas of your home are heated or cooled at a particular time. For instance, during the day, you probably do not need to keep your bedroom temperature controlled, and at night you do not need to keep the rest of the house at a particular temperature.
With ductless split systems, you have much more control over which rooms are being heated or cooled at any given time. Individual thermostats on each unit allow you to set the temperature for that room only rather than expending the energy to heat or cool your entire house all the time.
Because of their slim design and versatile nature, ductless split systems can be installed virtually anywhere in your home. You can select from a variety of sizes and models too, so it is easy to tailor your system to meet your specific heating and cooling needs.
