You’ve no doubt seen them…probably even know people who have them. But you’re still not sold on the concept. Or, maybe you just haven’t had the time or inclination to dig a little deeper.
In either case, allow us to be of some assistance. First of all, we’re talking about ductless air systems. They also go by:
- Ductless air conditioners
- Wall-mounted AC systems
- Ductless heat pumps, and who knows what else
For now, what they’re called isn’t the point. What matters is what a ductless air system can do for you. Here are four practical applications.
No Existing Ductwork
Some homes just weren’t built with air ducts in mind. If you live in such a home, it could would be cost prohibitive to the extreme to add them, and that’s if you add ductwork at all. So, what choices does that leave you with: window units, portable AC units? Sure, those are two good options, but a ductless air system is even better. That’s because it can provide cooling and heating, not just the former. It also can cover one room, your whole house, or anything in between. No ductwork, whole-house comfort. That’s a hard combination to beat.
If your heating and AC systems were properly sized, they’re probably not up to the challenge of covering a new addition. In the “old days”, that meant upgrading both systems to accommodate the additional square footage. And while you still have that option, now there’s a much simpler and cost-effective choice: install a ductless heating and cooling system to provide year-round comfort in your new room or suite of rooms.
Bolstering Your Existing Systems
Let’s say you have a two-story home where you enjoy perfect comfort downstairs but, come summer, the upstairs bedrooms are like ovens. That’s just one way your current AC system can let you down and a ductless air system can fill the gap. Have one installed just for the upstairs and enjoy all the comforts of home upstairs and down.
Heat & Cool Your Garage
Not every garage needs to be heated or cooled, but many do. Thinking about buying an antique car you plan to store in your garage? You’re going to want central air and heat to help protect it. Have exposed water pipes in your garage? Here in Connecticut, you can prevent frozen and burst pipes in a well-heated space.
