Options for Your Individualized Needs
Thanks to technological advances, the HVAC industry has rapidly evolved and improved its energy efficiency over the last few decades. Now, more than ever, there are countless air conditioning brands, models, and system types that you can choose from depending on what kind of home or business you have and what your needs are. Trying to figure out what kind of AC system will save you the most money while cooling your space can be overwhelming, but we can help.
Since 1987, Kappl Heating & Air Conditioning has been devoted to keeping our customers safe and healthy through our HVAC services, from cooling and heating repairs and replacements to installations. Today, many customers are opting for ductless mini split systems over central AC systems to cool their homes. We’re able to educate you on this type of system and help you determine if it’s an option for you when you call.
Ductless mini split systems are similar to central AC systems in that both consist of two units that include a condenser, which sits outside of your home or office, and an evaporator that functions inside. The coolant goes between the units and carries heat to the outside unit, where it’s released. Make sure to take a look at our commercial HVAC for reliable HVAC services!
Where the systems differ, however, is in the existence of ductwork. A central air system sends cool air into your ductwork, where it’s carried throughout your home or office, while a ductless system uses a cable so the use of ductwork and vents is not needed.
Which Homes Benefit the Most from Going Ductless?
If you already have ductwork in your home, it may be more cost effective to stay with a central AC system, as the infrastructure is already in place. Most older homes do not have air duct systems, which means families who own them may want to lean toward purchasing a ductless mini split system. Installing an AC system and ducts can be extremely expensive compared to simply installing a mini split system.
Benefits of Ductless Systems
There are many benefits to switching over to a ductless mini split AC system, including:
- The ability to cool multiple rooms individually: Each evaporator unit that is connected to a condenser unit means each room functions as an independent zone. This means that you can control the temperature of each room to your liking, rather than having one remote for the whole area.
- Cost efficiency: Going ductless means you won’t have to worry about the possibility of air duct leakage, which can be expensive in utility costs. Duct losses can account for more than 30% of energy consumption for space conditioning, according to Energy.gov. You also save money by being able to only cool the rooms you’re using.
It’s important that you hire the right team to install your ductless AC system. These can easily be installed incorrectly and end up wasting energy and preventing your space from being properly cooled. When you call our technicians, we will correctly size your system, evaluate your home or work space to find the best location to install your units, and walk you through each step so you understand how your AC system works.
