Owning an older home in Colonial Heights, VA, can be both a joy and a challenge. Preserving its historical value is a prime consideration but so is maintaining your indoor comfort during the warmer months of the year. Consider installing ductless air conditioning to maintain your home’s integrity.
What are Ductless HVAC Systems?
Ductless HVAC systems, also called mini-split systems, are air conditioning units that do not use a system of ductwork to deliver cooled air. At their simplest, these units consist of a mounted wall unit connected via hoses to a nearby outdoor compressor. They are ideal for older homes without existing ductwork as you can achieve ultimate comfort without the mess and high expense of installing ducts.
Highly Efficient Cooling
One of the biggest benefits of ductless cooling systems is that they are highly energy efficient. In traditional systems, as much as 25 percent of the cooled air gets lost in the ductwork. In addition, a ductless system uses inverter-driven compressors, which deliver cooling according to your needs at that moment, so you’ll never get more or less than you need.
Other benefits include:
- Flexibility allows installation in tight places
- No ducts mean improved indoor air quality
- Less invasive and quicker to install than traditional systems
- Reduces your carbon footprint
Understand Your Costs
Installation of ductless systems in your home has a higher initial cost than using a traditional indoor air conditioning system. Like other types of HVAC systems, they must have proper sizing in order to work efficiently.
