Can Your Home Benefit From a Multi-Zone Ductless System?
Ductless mini-split systems solve many problems in homes that are difficult to heat and cool. They’re a great option for older buildings that don’t have ductwork or for room additions that are difficult to connect to a ducted system. If you have rooms with hot and cold spots, ductless units can help even out temperatures. If you would like to install an energy-efficient heating and cooling system in your Stuart, Florida, home, a multi-zone ductless system may give you the most benefit.
What is a Multi-Zone Ductless System?
A multi-zone ductless system connects several rooms or areas to a single compressor located outside. As the name suggests, you don’t require ducts. The compressor connects to indoor air handlers by a conduit routed through the wall. The conduit carries refrigerant, condensate pipes and electrical wiring. Each room has its own temperature controls. As a result, you can set personalized temperature settings and avoid conflict over the thermostat settings.
There’s minimal disturbance or mess involved in installing a ductless system. A comfort specialist can usually install a ductless AC in one day. They’ll drill a 3-inch hole through a wall for the conduit to pass through and mount blowers on the wall, ceiling or floor. The compressor can be placed in a convenient location outside, either on the ground or on a wall. Conduit lengths can be up to 50 feet.
Believe it or not, ducted systems can lose up to 20 percent of conditioned air through leaks and poor joints. As a result, you pay more in energy bills and your system strains to meet your demands.
Because there are no ducts, ductless systems don’t lose any conditioned air. You can control the temperature in each room with a remote device. This allows greater comfort, because changing the temperature in one room doesn’t affect the temperature in another.
Multi-zone ductless systems are easy to install, energy-efficient, allow individualized climate control for each zone, and provide heating and cooling solutions for rooms that can’t connect to ducts.
