You live in a beautiful older home with thick plaster walls. Or perhaps your home is historic in nature. Running ductwork for a central HVAC system is probably not the ideal heating and cooling solution for your home. In those cases, ductless HVAC systems are a great choice. These are excellent alternatives for older homes in which running ductwork is difficult, including homes without attics or the right closet space to do so.
Also called mini-splits, these are compact, energy-efficient systems that focus on individual rooms. (The “split” is because there are separate indoor and outdoor units). They are easy to install, very flexible, and energy efficient. You may have seen these systems in restaurants, houses of worship, retail establishments, or officesâ€”and if you’ve traveled to Europe, where these systems are popular, you’re likely to have seen them in many places and spaces.
How ductless HVAC systems work
The system uses two-way heat pump technology to distribute warm or cool air, and it does so much better than a traditional electric heater. has two components, an indoor air-handling unit and an exterior condenser or compressor. These variable speed compressors use inverter technology to constantly match the heating or cooling load. There are also refrigerant lines running between the two units, one to deliver energy and the other to remove condensate.
Unlike central heating systems, there isn’t any on/off cycling, so there are no uncomfortable temperature variations or high energy consumption. They come with a remote control to program the desired temperature for day and nighttime settings.
