Looking to Heat or Cool a room without ductwork? Or maybe you are looking to minimize hot or cold spots in your home. Our ductless systems offer flexible solutions that can be customized to meet your needs.
What's the Ideal Situation for Ductless?
Depending on your home’s construction, ductless systems can make sense in a variety of applications, including whole-house heating and cooling. But there are certain situations where ductless has a clear advantage:
New additions: garage apartments, bonus rooms, sunrooms, garages or work shops and man caves. The main benefit of ductless here is that it will be properly sized for the new space and won’t steal air from other rooms or overload your old HVAC system.
Downsizing efforts for larger homes. “Many retirees, for example, don’t want to heat and cool rooms they aren’t using,” “But they often shut HVAC grilles in empty rooms, creating pressure imbalances and mold problems. It’s far better to install a ductless system in, say, the master bedroom and set the house’s main thermostat to run minimally.”
Serving multiple needs under one roof. Does your family constantly fight over the thermostat? Ductless is ideal for creating independent temperature zones in different rooms, and although you can install zoning in a traditional ducted system, it won’t be as efficient.
Giving support to a room with specific heating/cooling problems. If you have a small kitchen with a giant stove, a southwest view and big picture windows, a ductless unit can make your Fourth of July party far less sweaty without having to install new ductwork.
Adding AC to a house with no existing ductwork. Ductless isn’t cheap, but it’s less expensive than adding ductwork to an existing house.
Maintaining Your System
What You Can Do
Remove the filters from your indoor component, and dust them thoroughly. This should be done every six to eight weeks, but if you have allergies, pets, or smokers in your home, you might want to check them more often. If your filters are too dirty to dust clean, you should probably replace them, then get on a regular schedule of dusting them.
Your filters are one of the most important parts of your ductless system, as they protect both your lungs and the rest of your system from dust and debris accumulation.
