Ductless Mini split systems

Ductless mini split systems are a great alternative to central air when wanting air conditioning in a home, office building or new addition that does not have ductwork.

These systems are made up of an outdoor unit and an indoor air handler. Since the air compressor is located outside the home or building, this helps keep the system quiet and does not disrupt your home or office. Standard heating and cooling solutions run off one thermostat and works hard to heat or cool the whole building to the same temperature. For some people it ends up being too hot, while for others the temperature is too cold, and for a few it ends up feeling comfortable. A multi zone ductless mini split system allows you set up several inside units to one outdoor unit. And the best part is each indoor unit is controlled by its own remote control, allowing every area to be set to a desired temperature.

Most heating and cooling systems work hard to achieve your desired temperature by turning itself on and off in order to produce your desired temperature. This causes large temperature fluctuations and is an inefficient way to heat or cool an area. Now, new technology has surfaced that allows these machines to continually adjust the compressor as it detects changes in the room temperature, saving energy.

Another great highlight to these systems is that many now offer heating and cooling solutions. By running the system in a reverse mode, these units can heat an area when temperatures drop. Although, if temperatures drop too low, some units may require a secondary source of heat in order to keep your home or office at a comfortable temperature.

Quiet, easy to install and energy efficient. Contact us today for more on ductless mini split systems, and how they can be a benefit to your home or office.
