What sets ductless systems apart from other HVAC units is they don’t use ductwork to transport conditioned air around your home. Instead, they operate using an outdoor compressor/condenser unit that is connected to one or more indoor air handling units that are installed on the ceilings or walls to distribute heating and cooling. A conduit links the indoor and outdoor units, housing essential components such as the power cable, refrigerant tubing and condensate drain.
Like a traditional air-source heat pump, ductless mini splits don’t create heat by burning a fuel such as natural gas or oil. They use electricity and refrigerant to move warm air between the inside and outside of houses depending on the season. In colder months, mini splits use refrigerant to extract warm air from the outside air to warm your home. The exact opposite occurs during the warmer months, as the refrigerant extracts warmth from your indoor living areas and distributes it into the outdoor air through the condenser.
Ductless mini split HVAC systems are extremely flexible and can provide efficient heating and cooling for a number of applications. Some of the most common include:
Some of the most common reasons homeowners in Edgewater, MD install ductless mini split systems include:
Although many homeowners use ductless mini split systems just for cooling, if they’re connected to a heat pump, they can provide both heating and cooling for year-round comfort. That way, homeowners don’t have to buy separate heating and cooling systems.
Unfortunately, central HVAC systems that utilize traditional ductwork can be highly inefficient. It’s estimated that as much as 20-30% of conditioned air escapes ducts through leaks and poor insulation. Without the use of ductwork, ductless mini splits are highly efficient which will lower your energy bills and decrease wear and tear on the system.
With no ductwork to worry about, a ductless mini split system can be installed in almost any space, regardless of the size or layout. These systems are ideal for retrofitting older homes that don’t have ductwork.
Each indoor air handler is equipped with its own air handler to capture dirt, dust, allergens and other contaminants and pollutants for improved indoor air quality. Ducts can also be magnets for collecting dust, dander and other irritants that can eventually make their way into your home’s living areas.
When you install mini splits across your home, you can create temperature zones. This is beneficial for a couple of reasons. Firstly, family members can set the temperature to their personal preference in their own rooms for improved comfort. Secondly, you can adjust the temperature up or down based on the season in rooms you rarely use for lower energy costs.
