Ductless Free Systems vs. Duct Air Conditioning Systems

There has been a lot of buzz around ductless / mini-split heating and air conditioning systems lately. We would like to explain just what these systems are and how they might benefit your home.

Ductless heat pumps are highly efficient heating and cooling systems. Also referred to as Mini-splits, they were developed in Japan over 30 years ago, and have completely changed how people think about heating and cooling their homes and businesses. They can mount high on a wall, on the floor, in a suspended ceiling grid and other places where traditional systems might not fit. As their name implies, don’t utilize a traditional duct system to distribute the conditioned air throughout the home. Much like a traditional air conditioning system, there is still a unit that is located outside and connects to the indoor unit through a series of tubing and wires

Ductless air conditioning and heating systems are generally more energy efficient than their ducted counterparts. Also, ductless systems are often less expensive and easier to install, particularly in a house that does not already contain ductwork.

The indoor unit of a ductless air conditioning system can generally handle the cooling load of one or two rooms, but for a whole home space, you will need to install multiple units throughout the home. These units can connect to the same outdoor compressor and be controlled individually, saving energy by setting different temperatures in different parts of your home.

Remember, just like whole-home systems, the higher the SEER and HSPF ratings, the more efficient they will be. Rhymes Heating and Cooling offers a variety of duct free heating and cooling systems to meet any individual room’s needs.
