Have You Considered Going Ductless?

Is your home one of many in the area without any functional ducts? Many homes are built without ductwork or have ductwork that requires extensive replacement, and are heated via a boiler system or an electric heater, without the need for a forced-air delivery system. So during air conditioning season, these homes must find other means of cooling down. And in the hot, humid summers here in Media, PA, a fan simply isn’t enough. This is where a ductless split system is the ideal solution.

What Is a Ductless Mini Split?

A ductless mini split may be the right choice for your home or new room addition. Many homeowners choose small window or room air conditioners for their homes without ducts, but these are inefficient and often insufficient for your needs. A ductless mini split, on the other hand, works just like an air conditioner, except that it blows air directly into the room.

A ductless mini split consists of an outdoor unit and one or more indoor air handler. The outdoor compressor can hold up to four indoor blowers, depending on how many rooms you want to cool. A refrigerant line connects the units, and the air handlers are mounted high up on the walls or suspended from the ceiling.

The Benefits of Ductless Mini Splits

There are plenty of benefits of going ductless.

  • Less Hassle – Installing or replacing ductwork is a long and involved process. Installing a ductless mini split usually takes less than a day, and no major renovations need to be done.
  • Better Efficiency – Another benefit of the ductless mini split is that it runs more efficiently than window or room air conditioners, and more efficiently than many models of traditional split-system air conditioning system.
  • Zone Control – Ductless mini splits come with built-in zone control, so you can cool each room separately from the others.
