Many of the homes we serve in Hartford, Tolland and Windham counties have no vents or ductwork. These homes generally use a boiler for heat in the winter. During the high heat of summer, many people who live in houses without ducts think that their only option is a loud, ineffective window air conditioner.
The truth is there’s a versatile, efficient, long-lasting solution: ductless mini-splits.
These fantastic systems consist of indoor cooling units that connect to an outdoor condenser. The units draw in warm air from your living space, cool it and return it to you. We have installed more ductless mini-splits than just about anyone else in northern Connecticut. We can attest to their many benefits.
A central air conditioning system is generally controlled by a single thermostat, meaning that your whole home is set to a single temperature — even the rooms you aren’t in. By contrast, ductless mini-splits can provide zoned cooling. With a zoned system, each indoor unit functions independently, and you can keep individual spaces set to different temperatures.
In part because of its zoned cooling capabilities, ductless mini-split systems are often much less expensive to operate than central A/C. Here are some ways that ductless systems can save you money through efficiency:
Installing an entire central A/C system from scratch can take several days. Ductless mini-splits require a much simpler installation process. We can often get you up and running in one day. And the installation is minimally disruptive, with only minor drilling.
One of the best features of mini-splits is how versatile they are. We can find the perfect placement for indoor units that keeps them out of sight while ensuring proper cooling for your home. Moreover, ductless systems typically run more quietly than central A/C equipment.
If you properly maintain your mini-splits, they will last much longer than central A/C equipment does. Mini-split systems often operate efficiently for longer than 20 years! That’s one more way you can achieve significant cost savings with a mini-split system.
