Is It Time To Go Ductless?

If you are looking for a new way to enjoy a comfortable home, you may want to consider choosing a ductless HVAC system. Installing a system for ductless air conditioning in Fresno can take your energy efficiency and home comfort to the next level.

But what if you have a home with ductwork in it? What are the benefits really of a ductless system? We can answer these questions and more below. The team at Donald P. Dick Air Conditioner can help give you the answers you need to make an informed decision about your next air conditioning system.

What is a Ductless System?

Ductless systems are a type of home comfort system that, unsurprisingly, doesn’t require ductwork in order to get the job done. Ductless systems use heat pump technology to cool your home. They do this by absorbing heat from the air in your home into the refrigerant that is cycled through the system.

This may seem simple but it comes with added functions such as using multiple air handlers rather than ducts to deliver cool air, or the ability to reverse the refrigerant flow to heat your home as well as cool it.

What Kinds of Homes Can Have a Ductless System?

The answer is any home can work with a ductless system really!

Ductless systems can work in any home with a professional installation. However, they are especially helpful in homes that are too small or too old enough to accommodate ductwork.

The only catch you might run into with a ductless system is that, in a larger home, you may need more than one system to provide comfort for the entire house.

Can You Add a Ductless System to a Home With Ductwork?

Again, this is another yes.

Let’s say that you have ductwork that is in pretty bad shape and you are tired of spending extra money trying to keep it up. A ductless system may be a good alternative.

You might also want to combine a ductless system with a ducted one. For example, if you added rooms to your home and your existing system can’t provide cool air to the new additions, you can have a ductless air conditioner added to the new area.

Are There Any Real Benefits To Using a Ductless System?

There are lots of benefits that come with a properly installed ductless system which include:

  • No ductwork needed!
  • Easier to keep up.
  • Better indoor air quality.
  • Year-round comfort.
  • Quieter operation.
  • Less space needed for the physical units.
