How a Ductless System Can Save You Time and Hassle in Any Season
When your Houston home demands fast, targeted cooling from a system that’s easy to install and maintain, a standard central air conditioning system won’t cut it. Here’s how a ductless air conditioning system can save you time and hassle in any season.
Ductless or mini-split systems rely on zones, so each indoor air handling unit cools a designated area or specific room in your home. Targeting various zones is always a breeze, and you can increase the temperature in one part of your home while lowering it in other areas, if needed. Focus on cooling the bedrooms at night, and switch over to cooling the living room and kitchen when you’re enjoying family time.
Since the system doesn’t force air through ductwork through your entire home the way a central air conditioner, a ductless system cools each of your home’s zones quickly. Because you only need to cool the occupied parts of your home, you’ll never have to worry about wasting energy on unused rooms. Many Carrier ductless systems also include turbo mode to offer even faster cooling.
Installing a central air system can take several days if it includes installing ductwork. Ductless systems, on the other hand, involve a fast and easy installation. These systems typically need just a three-inch hole for the conduits that connect the indoor and outdoor units. Most outdoor units can be placed up to 100 feet from the indoor component, so it’s possible to install the exterior part neatly out of view.
Effortless Switch from Cooling to Heating
Mini split systems provide more than just cool air, which is good news when seasonal changes bring cold weather. Once outdoor temperatures start to drop, you can easily switch your system to heating mode. Most ductless systems will heat your home even when winter temperatures drop below zero.
