Cool or Heat Any Room Easily and Efficiently with Ductless Mini-Splits
Many homeowners think of central heating and cooling systems as their only effective option for managing home comfort. However, you don’t really need masses of ductwork running through the home to keep things comfortable. Plunkett Heating & Air offers ductless mini-split AC systems that may transform the way you look at home cooling.
Introducing Ductless AC
Ductless mini-splits feature a single outdoor unit and one or more indoor cooling units. It takes just a small, three-inch hole in the wall to connect the these. As the name suggests, there’s no ductwork at all in this type of installation.
A cooling-only system will help you keep the home comfortable by pulling heat from the air inside the home and pushing it outside. This will effectively lower the temperature in your house. If you opt for a ductless mini-split air conditioner and heat pump, you will also have the option of reversing the process to bring heat into the home. This would enhance both your heating and cooling efforts for year-round comfort.
Enjoy the Benefits of Ductless Mini-Splits
Ductless systems eliminate the hazards and inconveniences that come with ductwork. Ducts have naturally weak spots throughout the system where leaks tend to develop. ENERGY STAR estimates that 20 to 30 percent of the air moving through the average duct system is lost through leaks, holes, and loose connections. With a ductless system, you enjoy the cooling you’re paying for. None of the air is lost, instantly improving your energy efficiency.
A ductless air conditioning system makes it easy to zone your cooling. You can turn individual indoor units on and off as needed, so you’re only cooling the rooms you’re using at any given time. Each unit has its own thermostat, so you’ll enjoy more personalized management. End the thermostat battle and let everyone manage their bedroom temperatures individually with this system.
Installing a Mini-Split AC
The installation process for a mini-split system is quick and easy. If you have a historic home without existing ductwork or you want to add cooling easily to a home addition, like a sunroom, this is a simple way to do it. Our technicians at Plunkett will help you install your new ductless AC system efficiently. You can switch it on and begin enjoying your enhanced comfort right away.
