Are you worrying about how to adequately cool and heat your home? Consider a ductless HVAC system. Let’s look at how this HVAC solution works and see how homeowners in Punta Gorda, FL, can benefit from an installation.
What’s Ductless HVAC?
Traditional HVAC systems use ductwork — a collection of tubes that move air to different rooms. A ductless mini-split system doesn’t require that engineering, as it consists of indoor units, which work separately, and an outdoor unit, which manages the functionality.
How Do Ductless Systems Work?
Ductless HVAC systems, also called mini-splits, operate like any other system that controls temperature. But mini-splits do it without ducts that you need installed around the house. As a result, you avoid energy waste from leaky ducts.
Outdoor units release heat pulled from inside the home. Indoor units run warm air across cold evaporator coils. Refrigerant absorbs the heat and sends it to the outdoor unit.
Indoor units are also called air handlers. You can have as many as eight handlers in the home operating in conjunction with a single condensing outdoor unit. The air handlers usually mount on the wall, but they can also mount on the ceiling or floor.
The air handler manages cooling and heating temperatures for the area where you install it. This means one occupant can have their room cool while another who prefers warmer air can adjust their unit accordingly.
Convenience and Savings
Mini-splits don’t have to replace current central systems. They can supplement them, being strategically added to sun rooms, garages or grow rooms. It’s an affordable option to direct more warm or cool air where needed.
We believe that ductless heating and cooling will become a primary eco-resource for saving energy and maximizing home comfort. Call Executive Cooling and Heating to find out about our HVAC services and why we think the ductless option stands out.
