A Short Look at When Ductless Mini Splits Are Useful
To give you a few quick examples of the usefulness of ductless mini splits before you call us, here are situations where going with a ductless installation is beneficial.
Older home without ducts
If the only way you’ve been able to enjoy electro-mechanical air conditioning in your house is with window units, then you’re a prime candidate for a ductless system install. Older homes (pre-1970s) often had no ductwork built into them, and adding ductwork poses major challenges, such as using up closet space and the attic. A ductless system lets a home add air conditioning throughout the rooms without requiring window units or construction to put in ductwork.
Expanding your square footage with a new bedroom, a den, or a home office? You may find it’s difficult to heat and cool the new space with your current HVAC system. Instead of trying to extend the ducts or installing a new central AC and heater to handle the extra space, you can instead use a ductless mini split.
You want to turn your garage into a workshop, or the attic into a bedroom. But neither of those spaces are part of the HVAC system—how can you make them into part of the household living space? Simple, use a ductless mini split. All it takes is one wall unit and a unit outside, and you’ll have the spot cooling and heating you need.
New Home Construction/Remodeling
If you have plans to build a new home or make extensive changes to your current one, you don’t have to worry about pesky, space-consuming ducts if you don’t want to. Plan on using a ductless system, and you’ll enjoy better freedom to design the house the way you want it.
Improving Indoor Air Quality for People With Asthma and Allergies
Ducts are a source of numerous pollutants since they serve as a reservoir for dust and dander and lint. Whenever the central blower fan comes on, all these particles get blasted out into the living spaces. Well, a ductless system has no ducts to collect all these pollutants. This makes going ductless ideal in homes where people have allergies and asthma problems—it’s cleaner air for everyone.
