DUCTLESS HVAC SYSTEMS & SERVICE IN GASTONIA, NC
For many decades, the most common way for a home to enjoy air conditioning and heating was through a central AC and furnace that connected to a ventilation system. Many homes today still use this conventional set-up. However, there are other options available now for residential heating and cooling that do not require any ductwork at all. These ductless heating and cooling systems, or ductless mini splits, are popular in Europe and Japan and are increasing in number in the U.S. You’ll understand why when you hear about their many advantages.
FSM Heat & Air offers installation, replacement, repair, and maintenance for ductless mini splits. Our technicians are available to answer any questions you may have regarding ductless systems and to schedule service. We provide quality and reliability you can trust in Gastonia, NC and the surrounding areas.
HOW DUCTLESS AIR CONDITIONING AND HEATING WORKS
A ductless air conditioner or heat pump is designed similarly to a standard central air conditioner: it’s a split system that contains both indoor and outdoor components. Heat is absorbed through one component and released through the other. But a conventional central system has only one indoor unit, which contains a refrigerant coil and a blower fan that sends the conditioned air into a network of ducts. With a ductless system, there’s one outdoor unit, but multiple indoor units: mini air handlers mounted on walls around the house that connect to the outdoor unit through refrigerant and power lines. (This is the reason ductless systems are also known as ductless mini splits.) Each of the air handlers contains its own refrigerant coil and blower fan, sending conditioned air directly into the living space.
THE ADVANTAGES OF DUCTLESS MINI SPLIT INSTALLATION
There are a number of benefits that ductless systems offer compared to standard central air systems:
- Increased energy efficiency: Ductless ACs and heat pumps do not lose or gain heat through ductwork, which makes them more energy efficient in general. They also use smaller motors that consume less power.
- Zone control: A ductless air conditioning and heating system automatically provides zone control. Each air handler can be operated separate from the others, so you only need to provide heating or cooling to the rooms that require it. This is another way that ductless mini splits help save energy.
- Space–saving: If you’re building a new house, remodeling your home, or adding on a room, a ductless system is a great option because it removes the issue of finding a space for the ductwork.
- Better indoor air quality: Air ducts develop an accumulation of dust and dirt over time, which results in these contaminants getting blown into the air whenever the heater or AC blower comes on. A ductless system doesn’t have this problem and can help with cleaner indoor air.
