Why Use a Ductless System?

ductless-blowerAre you in the process of having a new home constructed? Is it time to get your brand new HVAC systems in place? Do you have existing systems in your home that are ready to be replaced? If so, then you have some homework to do. While most homeowners are familiar with central air conditioners and furnaces, there are some different types of systems that you may want to consider which are somewhat less well-known. Some of them are surging in popularity, though.

The ductless mini split definitely falls into this category. While not as common as the aforementioned systems in homes throughout the US, ductless mini splits have long been used in commercial applications and in foreign residences. As more and more homeowners are looking for more and more efficiency and convenience with their HVAC systems, ductless mini splits in Corona have grown more and more popular. If you haven’t considered using one in your home, we have some information to share that just may put it at the forefront of your mind.

How Do Ductless Mini Splits Work?

Forced air heating systems like furnaces, central air conditioners, and air-source heat pumps use air ducts in order to distribute conditioned air throughout the house. Ductless mini splits, as the name implies, do not. They aren’t radiant heating systems, though—they still blow air into living spaces in order to achieve and maintain desired temperatures.

However, this is accomplished with individual blower units rather than through the use of ductwork. The blowers are installed throughout the house, with the single outdoor unit generally capable of supporting up to 4 blowers. They connect directly the outdoor unit via a simple conduit containing power, refrigerant, and any necessary drainage lines.

The system uses heat pump technology in order to offer both heating and cooling. The blower units act as the indoor coils, condensing or evaporating refrigerant as needed. When cooling a home, evaporating refrigerant in the indoor units and condensing it at the outdoor unit allows for the removal of heat from the house. In the winter, evaporation happens outdoors. That allows the system to use existing heat from the air outside to heat the house. The refrigerant is compressed, and then is evaporated at the indoor units to release its heat.

What Are the Benefits?

The most obvious benefit is, of course, the convenience that heat pump technology allows for. The elimination of the ductwork, however, is what sets this system apart. Not only is heating with heat pump technology very efficient, but the lack of ducts eliminates the risk of energy loss via duct leaks. That makes the system inherently more efficient in both heating and cooling modes.

Plus, it is a lot easier to install this type of system in existing properties, especially those without existing ductwork. When you consider too that getting rid of the ducts can help to reduce the risk of indoor air quality issues, it becomes pretty clear that going ductless has a lot to offer!

G-O-E-T-T-L it’ll keep you cool, but it’s hard to spell.

Frank identified the need for new faucets in the master bath and discussed my preferences. The type of faucet being replaced is no longer available (mini wide spread) so he had to do some research to come up with a solution. Had to be ordered, not surprisingly, and we appreciate his conscientious performance.

This was my first service with this company and it was a pleasant one. The technicians were professional and polite and quickly resolved a minor scheduling conflict. Interaction with a sales manager for a quote on needed equipment was equally pleasant.

Signed up for the Sadie membership as a a preventative measure to avoid bigger problems down the line. Had my appointment to check my system today and to my surprise the tech discovered a huge gash in my ductwork! Thankfully so because the ductwork up there is a very tight space which I could never squeeze myself into and would’ve gone unnoticed for who knows how long. Huge thank you to Technician Roy Adame for making the trip out on a Saturday afternoon, going the extra mile to fully inspect the system in a tight space, and fully explaining the possible causes of the damage and the impact it would on the system performance. 🙏🏼🤙🏼🫡👏🏼🙂
