Many homeowners have trouble cooling specific areas of their homes during the summer. It's frustrating to think you need to replace or install a new air conditioner, but when your equipment gets old, you'll want to think about a ductless AC installation if you have zoning problems. For an older home that doesn't have room for air ducts, it's ideal, but it can also be the right solution to zoning issues.
Let's take a look at what zoning is and then how a ductless AC installation can help to solve the problem.
Zoning is a term we use as an HVAC contractor to describe a home with one or more rooms (or zones) that don't get heated and cooled well. That's a problem for the person who spends time in the uncomfortable zone while everyone else is happy and satisfied.
Are there rooms in your house that are colder during winter or hotter than the rest of the house during summer? A ductless AC installation can solve the issue because they control the temperature of the rooms in your home separately. Since the unit has its own thermostat, the area is heated and cooled comfortably regardless of the temperature in the rest of the house.
Ductless mini splits are available in all types of systems, including those that only provide air conditioning. Here in Houston, TX, ductless AC installation makes more sense because it can supply both heating and cooling, but that may not be true in your case if you live in an extremely cold climate. You may need a steam boiler for the winter instead of a unit that runs on electricity.
Older homes in Houston don't always have room for ductwork, so many people choose to install window air conditioners. Unfortunately, they aren't very efficient and are noisy. That noisy old window air conditioner can be a thing of the past for your household.
The quality ductless mini splits work more efficiently to heat and cool your home, all at a very quiet operation. Many of our customers tell our HVAC company that they don't even realize the unit is on.
If you need an AC installation, going ductless is worth considering. Talk to your local HVAC contractor to see if it may be a good solution to your zoning problem or for your older home, a workshop, or room addition.
