Ductless Heating and Air Conditioning Systems
What do you do with rooms that are uncomfortable; too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter? Assuming it’s not a ductwork problem, Monster Mechanical has a simple solution – ductless mini-split systems. We install these systems when replacing your entire system isn’t necessary, or you have added an additional room with no ductwork connected.
Ductless Mini-Split Systems Are Revolutionizing the Industry
Though you may not have heard of it yet, ductless mini-split systems have been popular in Europe for over a decade. While traditional forced air heating and cooling systems consist of one heating and cooling unit connected to every room in your home through a system of ductwork, ductless mini splits are individual units that don’t require ductwork. They are smaller and each has its own indoor air handling unit and an outdoor condenser unit.
Advantages of Ductless Systems
There are quite a few benefits to installing a ductless mini-split system. Here are just a few:
Easy to Install – small 3-inch hole connects indoor & outdoor units. Varying conduit length allows outdoor units to be concealed easily
Installation Options – affixed to a wall, suspended from ceiling, mounted into drop ceiling
Energy Efficiency – heat only the rooms you want. No heat loss through ductwork like traditional systems
Customization Features – timers and sleep functions, allow for greater control of when and how you heat your home
Individual Comfort and Better Efficiency
They work much like a window air conditioner in that they are responsible for the comfort of only one room or area. Because they are smaller, they are ideal for installing in tight spaces or even recessed or suspended from the ceiling. They are available in compact outdoor units and also concealed indoor units, so they are pleasing to the eye and blend in when installed. Though they work like a window air conditioner, these new systems are 40% more efficient than a window AC for cooling and their heating performance is much better than traditional heat pumps.
Where Can You Use a Ductless Mini-Split System?
While ductless mini-split systems are great for single zones, and renovations, they are also growing in popularity. They can be used as a multi-zone system, such as in small to mid-sized homes with 2-8 zones, or as whole house systems; heating and cooling up to eight rooms independently. The real advantage to the ductless system is that you can control the temperature of each room individually. Ductless systems are great for heating and cooling add-on rooms, basements, garages, and sunrooms.
