What is a Ductless HVAC System?

Mini-Split Ductless air conditioners and heating systems are made up of two components: a wall-mounted indoor unit that works with a compressor Gold Star installs outside your home. The primary appeal of these systems is their ductless efficiency. Traditional systems lose about 25% or more in the ducts that distribute air throughout your home.

Every ductless air conditioner is a split system. The condenser is located outside your home while the indoor evaporator unit is located in your basement or attic. Ducts carry your home’s air from these units throughout your home. A mini-split ductless systems system works the same way but without the ducts. An indoor unit blows warm air from your home over cold evaporator coils. Refrigerant running through these coils absorbs heat, carrying it to the outside unit where it dumps the heat pulled from your home.

Ductless Heating and Cooling Options

You can have a single zone or multiple zones for your home or business with a ductless heating and cooling system. Zoning is accomplished by connecting multiple indoor units to your outdoor unit. Call Gold Star today at 1-302-947-8694 or contact us online to learn more about the ductless systems we offer or to schedule an onsite consultation and free estimate. When you contact us, be sure to inquire about the current specials and rebates we are offering.

Single-Zone Ductless HVAC

One outdoor unit and one indoor unit are connected by cables in a single-zone ductless system. A compressor, condenser coils, and a fan are housed in the outdoor condenser unit. The indoor evaporator unit contains evaporator coils, a blower, and an air filter, and the cabling connecting the two units consists of electric cables, a refrigerant line, and a drain line. The indoor unit is typically hung on a wall, but slim ceiling-mounted units are also available.

Multi-Zone Ductless HVAC

Multi-zone ductless systems have similar core components but differ in that there are two or more indoor units with separate lines to the outdoor unit. Separate indoor units allow you to cool those areas separately. While sleeping, for example, you could continue to cool the bedroom while keeping the living room at a warmer temperature.

Ductless HVAC Maintenance Matters

The sophisticated heat pumps used in contemporary ductless HVAC systems have many moving parts that degrade over time. To prevent malfunctions and ineffective operations, we advise a seasonal tune-up. Gold Star recommends scheduling maintenance prior to the cooling and heating seasons, but they can perform a tune-up at any time of year, and that service includes a multi-point inspection, a thorough cleaning, checking refrigerant levels, lubrication, tightening, and other services.

Is a Ductless HVAC System Right for Me?

Ductless mini-split system HVAC systems can be useful for single-room cooling in homes where ductwork is not an option. This system might be just what you’re looking for. A ductless mini-split system, on the other hand, is not the best solution for all cooling and heating needs, preferences, and situations. Indoor air conditioning units, as well as cables and lines running along the house’s exterior, must be hung. Homeowners must consider what they are willing to add to their home’s visual appeal, both inside and out. Even when ductwork is considered, a ducted central air system may be less expensive in the long run if a large amount of space needs to be temperature controlled.

When to Choose Ductless HVAC Solutions

Versatile Requirements Within A Single Residence

 Ductless systems offer individual temperature control in various rooms, providing a more efficient alternative to creating zones in a traditional ducted cooling system.

Introducing Air Conditioning To A Ductless Home

Incorporating ductwork into a home that lacks it can be both costly and messy. In contrast, the expense of installing ductless heating and cooling systems might be lower than constructing an entire network of ducts.

Improved Living Spaces, Detached Apartments, and Sunrooms

The mini-split ductless system is custom-designed to perfectly fit the dimensions of the area it serves for cooling and heating. Consequently, adding new spaces won’t impact the capacity of your existing air conditioning and heating system.

Efficiency In Larger Homes

Instead of closing vents in unoccupied rooms, which can disrupt the system’s balance, a more logical approach is to install a ductless mini-split unit in the master bedroom and operate the rest of the system at minimal levels.
