Ductless mini-splits have been the standard in Europe and Asia for decades. They are becoming more popular in Cashiers, NC and across the United States because they are versatile, easy to install, and energy efficient. With individual climate control in each room, they solve comfort and installation issues that are difficult to resolve with a central air conditioning system.
How Ductless Units Work
Ductless units do not require ducts to provide conditioned air. Instead, an indoor blower mounted on the wall or ceiling is attached to an outside condenser by a conduit. The conduit, routed through a small hole in the wall, contains electrical wiring, refrigerant lines, and condensate tubing. Depending on the brand, up to eight indoor blowers can be attached to one compressor. Each has its own digital remote control, allowing precise regulation of temperature and fan speeds.
They are practical for add-ons, conversions, rooms with uneven temperatures, or spaces that cannot be connected to a central HVAC system. Here are a few creative ways to use ductless mini-splits in your home or business. The NATE-certified installers at Radlee Heating and Cooling, an HVAC services provider for the western Carolinas and northeast Georgia, can help you select and install an appropriate unit.
Do you have a detached room that you would like to air condition and heat? Artist studios, workout rooms, workshops, and pool houses are a few examples of detached rooms that may need separate climate control. Window unit installations often require structural modifications and tend to be inefficient. Ductless heat pumps provide both heating and cooling in a single unit.
Older Homes Without Central HVAC Systems
If you live in an older home and do not have a ducted system, ductless heat pumps solve the problem. Individual air handlers can be installed in bedrooms, kitchens, or any room you wish. Installation is normally done in one day with minimal disturbance.
