Fall is a great time of year to install a new air conditioning system as our warm temperatures have cooled. There are a lot of choices available for homeowners when it comes to cooling your home, and one type of system you may want to consider is ductless air conditioning in Hastings. Since 1988, Climate Masters has installed multiple types of air conditioning systems, including ductless ones, so if you are ready for a new AC system, call us today.
How Does a Ductless System Work?
A ductless system has an outdoor unit that houses the condenser and compressor, and individual indoor blowers that distribute the cool air. The indoor blowers are about 35” long and can be mounted flush against walls or hung from ceilings. The blowers are connected to the outdoor unit via a small conduit that is installed in an exterior wall. This conduit holds the refrigerant line, power cord and condensate drain pipe. When an indoor blower is turned on, the cooling cycle begins and the refrigerant begins to flow. A fan, coils and filter are housed in each blower. A single outdoor unit can support up to 4 indoor blowers.
What Are the Benefits of a Ductless System?
Here are some of the benefits a ductless system can offer you:
- Heating and cooling – a ductless system that uses heat pump technology can offer your home both heating and cooling in a single device.
- Energy efficient – each indoor blower operates independently. This allows you to cool only the areas that need it, which can greatly reduce your energy usage.
- Customized comfort – each blower can be set at its own temperature, which allows you to create zone control.
- Easy expansion – because a ductless system does not need ductwork, it can be very easy to expand the system to other rooms in your home, or to an addition onto your home.
As we head toward cooler weather, having a system that can offer you both heating and cooling may be a great fit for your home.
