Avery County & Watauga County Ductless Air Conditioning Systems
Cost-Effective & Easy to Install Ductless Air Conditioners
When a house doesn't have an existing ductwork system to distribute conditioned air, it can be expensive and problematic to install a conventional central air conditioning system. In the past, homeowners would have to make do with portable room air conditioners or deal with the difficulty and expense of trying to conceal newly installed ductwork.
A ductless mini-split unit is a great option for homeowners who want the comfort and convenience of central air conditioning in a house that doesn't have a ductwork system.
What is a Ductless Air Conditioner?
A ductless air conditioner is a cooling system that simply does not require ducts - instead, it utilizes an outdoor condenser and at least one indoor air-handling unit to deliver temperature-controlled air directly into the space. This can present savvy home or business owners with a much more efficient and cost-effective solution compared to traditional ducted systems. These systems are an efficient and cost-effective way to provide single-zone comfort for home additions, sunrooms, or commercial and retail spaces. Since ductless mini split air conditioners can pull outdoor air into the building, these systems are particularly well-suited for high-ceilinged and/or open environments such as warehouses, studios, lofts, churches, schools, and other large structures. With a ductless air conditioner, users can easily adjust the temperature in multiple rooms or floors while conserving energy costs in the long run.
Easy Access Controls & Maximum Comfort
Today, ductless "mini-split" heat pumps provide homeowners and contractors with a permanent HVAC system option that is well-suited to retrofit applications.
Unlike a conventional forced-air system that relies on a network of ducts and a large, centrally located air handler, a ductless system includes smaller air handlers that are permanently mounted on the wall or ceiling. Each air handler is supplied with electricity, a refrigerant line connected to an outdoor compressor, and a condensate drain line.
The unit typically has remote as well as console controls and blows conditioned air into the room. Depending on its size, a single exterior compressor unit can supply one or more room-size air handlers, and each air handler can be controlled independently.
Most mini-split systems are designed as a heating and cooling system. As with other heat pumps, the heating mode doesn't work efficiently when temperatures are below freezing.
