Ductless air conditioners are ideal for multifamily houses in Tavernier, FL, or as add-ons in houses with non-ducted heating systems such as radiant panels. They also come in handy for room additions or small apartments where installation or extension of the distribution ductwork is not feasible. By installing a ductless air conditioner, you get an efficient system that’s easy to install, efficient and offers interior design flexibility.
1. Better at Zoning
Ductless mini-split systems are small and versatile when you need to heat or cool specific rooms differently. You can have as many as four indoor air handlers connected to one condenser unit outdoors. The number of air handlers you have in your indoor space will depend on the number of rooms you have and your home’s heating or cooling needs.
Each of the spaces will have its own thermostat so that you can regulate its temperature individually. An HVAC technician can help you set it up.
2. Easy to Install
Ductless systems don’t have running systems of ducts. To connect the indoor and the outdoor unit, you only need a 3-inch hole through your wall where the conduit passes. The connecting conduits come in different lengths, so you can connect the units even if they are as far as 50 feet apart.
With these ductless systems, you can cool or heat a room from the front of the house with the condenser located in a hidden or advantageous place behind it.
3. Minimal Energy Loss
The Department of Energy estimates that duct losses can account for up to 30% of the energy the air conditioning system consumes. This is especially true for attics and other unconditioned spaces. By avoiding this energy loss, you can lower your utility bills.
The ductless system also gives you flexibility when you need to improve the interior design of your home. Our technicians in Tavernier, FL, can hang it on your ceiling or wall, as your interior design allows.
