Heating & Cooling Without Ducts in Montgomery & Bucks County
A ductless mini split, sometimes known as “zoned HVAC,” allows you to heat or cool a room without having ducts to conduct the conditioned air. This makes mini splits the way to go if you have a renovation or addition that doesn’t include ducts. Chud Air Conditioning, Heating & Air Duct Cleaning can help you with mini splits in your home or business.
Mini splits are advantageous in larger homes because of their flexibility. You can control the rooms in which the heat or air conditioning is turned on, saving money on the rooms you aren’t using. If you’re only spending time in the family room and kitchen, you can cool those rooms rather than pay to cool the entire house.
How Does A Ductless Mini Split Work?
Ductless mini splits are typically made up of an outdoor compressor unit and up to four indoor air handling units that blow the cooled or warmed air into the rooms of the house. Indoor units are usually mounted high on a wall while the outdoor unit is connected to the indoor units via a small refrigerant line.
Often there are multiple indoor units which your technician will help to install in zones throughout the house. Because they can be controlled individually, mini splits allow for a zoned climate control in your home. You can cool one room without having to cool the entire house.
One of the greatest advantages of a ductless system is that traditional ductwork loses 20% to 30% of conditioned air through gaps and leaks in the ducts. You don’t have this energy loss when you depend on a ductless system.
