What is A Ductless Air Conditioning System?
A central air conditioner forces air through ductwork and out into the living spaces. A ductless air conditioner, on the other hand, forces are directed into the living spaces. These systems are often called mini-splits, which are a type of heat pump, which means that they can both heat and cool your home. Mini-splits are a popular choice for homes that do not have ductwork but also as a means of heating and cooling home additions and implementing zoned HVAC systems. Mini-splits are suitable for new construction but also all manner of existing residences, including houses, condos, and apartments. They can also be paired with a ducted system. A split system is called such because the condenser is installed outside the home while the evaporator is installed somewhere inside the home.
Is a Ductless Air Conditioner Right for Me?
A ductless air conditioner is ideal in a scenario where you lack ductwork and want to cool and heat a relatively singular space. It is also possible to install multiple indoor units to cool and heat multiple zones, but it is worth mentioning that ductless mini-splits are not ideal in all situations. The indoor units have to be hung inside often on the walls. These systems also require cables and other lines along the exterior of the home. Homeowners have to consider the aesthetics and the options on that front. In some cases, it may be more cost-effective over the long term to install ductwork, but that certainly does require a much greater initial investment. Gold Star can perform an in-home assessment in which we explore all of your options and provide you with our professional recommendations.
Ductless HVAC System Benefits
- The small size of a mini-split system makes it flexible to use for precise zoning or simply to control the temperature in a single, centralized room.
- Installing ductless cooling is less intrusive on your home, with a small cutout for line and cable access necessary.
- Indoor air units can usually be installed in a variety of locations within a room, allowing options for interior design aesthetics.
- Indoor air units come with simple covers and are surprisingly not very deep.
- Units that are secured high on a wall or the ceiling will benefit from a remote control.
- Ductless systems produce a low indoor noise level. The system will be working hard without you even realizing it.
Ductless Air Conditioner Repair
If you have a ductless air conditioner that is not working as well as it once did or has stopped working altogether, Gold Star can help. We will dispatch an air conditioning technician who will diagnose the problems accurately and fix them in an affordable and dependable manner. Our technicians drive work trucks that are outfitted with all common parts in addition to all the needed equipment and supplies, and that allows us to fix most air conditioning systems in just a single visit.
Ductless Air Conditioner Maintenance
Ductless AC systems still have many moving parts that will wear down over time. The best way to avoid an unexpected failure is to schedule seasonal maintenance. We will inspect your AC, perform a comprehensive cleaning, correct any wear and tear, and swap out your filters. The Factory Fresh AC Tune-Up service we offer even includes a one-year no-breakdown guarantee. A tune-up like this not only helps to avoid breakdowns but it lowers your month-to-month costs and extends the life of your equipment, which decreases your total cost of ownership.
