A ductless HVAC system can reduce your heating and cooling expenses as well as improve indoor comfort levels. With a ductless HVAC system in your Garden City, South Carolina, home, you will have an outdoor unit that connects to an indoor unit. This indoor unit allows you to heat and cool a specific zone in your home. You can choose from two basic types of ductless HVAC units: mini-split and multi-split systems.
Components of a Ductless HVAC System
Ductless systems are easy to install because they don’t require ductwork. They also boast flexible heating and cooling. A technician will install the unit outside your home, either on the ground or on the roof. The outdoor unit is connected via small cables along with a refrigerant line to the indoor unit. The installation of a ductless HVAC system requires a very small hole in the wall. Your installation technician will either place the indoor unit high on the wall or suspend it from the ceiling. You can adjust it using a remote or preset it to operate automatically.
What’s the Difference Between Mini-Split and Multi-Split Ductless Systems?
With a mini-split ductless system, you gain the ability to heat and cool one zone in your home. With a multi-split system, you can heat and cool multiple zones and can connect your outdoor unit to up to five indoor units. In larger homes, it usually makes sense to install a multi-split system. You’ll gain greater control over heating and cooling various zones in the home that tend to go unoccupied; this gives you optimal opportunity to reduce your heating and cooling expenses.
Should You Install a Ductless System?
Ductless HVAC systems make sense in homes that don’t have room for ductwork. They also work well for heating and cooling areas such as garages and attics that have been converted into living spaces.
