Hot outdoor temperatures can cause thermostat battles in your Ocala, Florida, home. Each person wants the indoor temperature just right, and you could use a system that allows everyone to personalize their area of the house. Here’s how a ductless HVAC system can transform your home:
What is Ductless HVAC?
While your standard air conditioning system likely relies on a duct network to blow cooled air throughout your home, a ductless system uses indoor air handlers installed right onto the walls of your living space. And they don’t require ducts. This setup allows you to split your home into multiple "zones" where a ductless unit controls the temperature in a limited space. You can use multiple ductless units to create zones throughout your entire home, or you can use one to personalize comfort in only a certain room.
How Does Ductless HVAC Work?
Ductless indoor air handlers connect to an outdoor condenser unit. The system pumps refrigerant between the two units to transfer heat either outside or into your living space. Each ductless air handler connects to its own individual thermostat. So while you want it warmer in one room while you take a nap, your significant other can adjust their own thermostat to cool the living room.
What are the Benefits of Ductless HVAC?
While the ducts of standard HVAC systems are often reliable at distributing air through your home, they often contribute to both air and energy loss. Since ductless systems remove the problems related to ducts, they increase energy efficiency. As a result, they can cut your utility costs.
Without ducts holding you back, ductless units allow you to tailor your comfort to your preferences and those of your family and friends. Not sure about making the complete switch to ductless? Install an indoor air handler in one room, then decide if you want to bring that personalization to your entire home.
Don’t let your old AC unit keep you from customizing your comfort. To install a ductless HVAC system in your home, call Sun Kool Air Conditioning, Inc. at 877-962-2120.
