What is Ductless HVAC?
Ductless HVAC is a method of heating and cooling your home without installing ductwork. This is a popular choice for older homes and recent add-ons that lack air ducts. You can also use ductless mini-splits to supplement your central HVAC system in rooms that are difficult to keep comfortable.
Areas where ductless mini-splits may prove the most useful include:
- Screened-in porches
- Home additions
How Ductless HVAC Systems Work
Ductless HVAC systems utilize many of the same components as central heat pumps, including an outdoor condensing unit and an indoor evaporator coil. These are linked via a conduit, which passes through a small hole in the wall.
The condensing unit sits on a slab outside, while one or more indoor units mount discreetly to the wall or ceiling. A single outdoor unit can connect to several indoor units, each of which is controlled independently. Thanks to each indoor unit’s built-in air handler, ductless systems do not require air ducts.
Similar to central heat pumps, ductless mini-splits extract heat from the air using refrigerant. They vent this warmth indoors in the winter and exhaust it outside in the summer. This means a single system can provide year-round comfort to an individual room or your entire house.
Benefits of Installing a Ductless HVAC System
With other climate control systems available, what makes ductless HVAC the best choice? Consider the many advantages of installing a ductless mini-split:
Energy efficiency: Ductless systems are already highly efficient, with many earning the ENERGY STAR® rating. They also avoid the leaks and other problems inherent with air ducts, meaning ductless HVAC could reduce your heating and cooling costs by up to 30%.
Ease of installation: With no ductwork involved, installation is much faster and simpler than putting a central HVAC system in a home without existing air ducts. At the same time, you retain the use of your windows on pleasant days.
Remote operation: Adjust the temperature, change the fan speed, and set operating timers from anywhere in the room using a convenient remote. Some ductless systems even offer Wi-Fi capabilities for temperature control via your cell phone and smart home devices.
Zoning capabilities: With multiple indoor units installed throughout your home, you can control the temperature one room at a time for maximum comfort and efficiency.
