How Do I Cool My Home without Ductwork?

technician-at-doorYour air conditioning system is not something that you can afford to take any chances with here in this part of the country. When summer temperatures soar, you are going to be running your air conditioner pretty much around the clock, and pretty much every day. Considering just how much you are going to be using your air conditioner, it only makes sense that you should do everything possible to guarantee that you get the very best performance that your system has to offer.

This not only means scheduling great services and investing in great equipment. It also means investing in the right equipment, both for your home’s needs and your own personal user preferences. That is why we strongly suggest that you consider the use of a ductless mini split system in your home. It is one of the most popular ways of cooling homes these days, and it just so happens that Goettl Air Conditioning Tucson offers exceptional ductless air conditioning service.

How Does Whole-House Cooling Work without Air Ducts?

You mean just using a bunch of window unit air conditioners, right? That’s what I’ve been doing! Stop wasting my time. 

Okay, so our readers (hopefully) aren’t that quick to dismiss the topic. But we are most definitely not advocating for the use of multiple window units in order to cool an entire home. Ducts or not, you are always going to be better served by using a whole-house system designed to, well, cool a whole house.

A ductless mini split system is sort of a decentralized central air conditioning system, if that makes sense. Basically, it uses an outdoor unit much like what you’d seen in any other whole-house air conditioning setup. The major difference is that, rather than using a single air handler/evaporator coil in the house, a ductless mini split system uses multiple, wall-mounted blowers in its operation. Each of these blower units connects to the outdoor unit via a conduit containing power/refrigerant/drainage lines.

How Does That Work?

Very well, thanks for asking! The blowers are all controlled independently of one another, meaning that you can easily maintain different temperatures in different areas of your home. While cooling-only models are available, most homeowners choose to use the heat pump model that also allows for highly efficient heating. There is no risk of energy loss via duct leaks, because there are no ducts that can possibly leak to begin with.

So who should consider the use of a ductless air conditioning system in their homes? Well, anyone with an existing property lacking ductwork, for starters. As well as those looking for greater control over their HVAC systems. As well as those looking to live in more comfort while also scaling back on their energy costs. So, you know, pretty much everyone! And be sure to reach out to us with any questions you may have. Our technicians have the answers that you need to decide if going ductless is right for you.

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

2.7.24Jay Cruz, technician, arrived on time today to service/check my ac/heating. Jay arrived timely and was friendly. Jay checked my inside unit, ceiling vents, etc and he made some recommendations. He was easy to talk to and very professional. He will be sending me an email with the recommendations and costs associated so that I can save the money to have these taken care of. I will say, no other technician has been as proficient as Jay.Yesterday, 2.6.24, I received a call from Betty. Betty was also very friendly, professional and knowledgeable. She listened to me and made recommendations and advice. By the end if the call, I felt like Betty was a friend.Thank you to Jay and Betty!Late one evening I was washing clothes. Daughter noticed water on floor under washer. I was so upset and worried about finding someone to fix the problem, whatever it was, and especially the cost. Goettl this the rescue! Namely, their employee/plumber, Chris! The next day, Chris came, found the clog in my pipes, and…voilà! We joined their $14.95 per month plan and that was all we paid for a job well done! Thank you!3.26.24Tyler Leija was great! He checked my drain pipe outside with a camera. Advised everything was clear. He checked my kitchen and master bathroom sinks and toilet. Tyler was friendly, but professional. Thank you.4.17.24Frank M arrived here on time. He was friendly and professional. He explained everything he was going to do today.

Roy A. was a pleasure to work with. He thoroughly and expertly explained all of the issues with my system with pictures and videos. He was transparent about the remediation options available to me and patiently reviewed each option with me. The install team, Daniel and Roy, were equally as awesome. They too were extremely knowledgeable, patient with my questions, and worked diligently to get my new unit up and running safely in one day. I couldn’t have asked for a better team.
