Ductless Systems in North Dallas, TX
Typically, when you think of forced air HVAC systems, you probably think of systems that hook up to a large network of ducts in order to distribute air throughout your living space. Blower fans send conditioned air into the ventilation system, which then spreads that air out to the vents and into the rooms. This is a very effective method of distributing conditioned air in your North Dallas, TX home, but not the only way.
Ductless systems, also referred to as ductless mini splits, allow for whole-home comfort without a number of the disadvantages of using ductwork. If you’d like to learn more about installing a ductless system in your home, or if you already have one of these systems and want to schedule services, simply call Frymire Home Services. We offer “A Higher Degree of Comfort.”
How Does a Ductless System Work?
The way in which ductless cooling and heating systems work is similar to how a standard split unit heat pump functions. Indoor and outdoor cabinets circulate refrigerant to transfer heat from one space to another. In cooling mode, the outdoor unit releases heat. In heating mode, the outdoor unit absorbs heat and releases it into your home.
The difference with a ductless system is that instead of using a single indoor unit connected to ductwork, it is one outdoor unit connected to multiple indoor air handlers. These smaller units are mounted on the walls of the rooms in which you’d like to use them, and each air handler connects to the outside unit through refrigerant and power lines that run through the back of the wall. The air handlers send air directly into the living space without requiring ductwork to transport it.
What Are the Benefits of Ductless Cooling and Heating?
Ductless mini splits aren’t the right answer for every single North Dallas, TX home. But in the homes they’re well–suited for, they provide a number of advantages, such as:
- Year Round Comfort: Since ductless systems often operate using heat pump technology, it means that not only can you count on ductless cooling, but you can enjoy the benefits of ductless heating from the same system, too.
- Increased Energy Efficiency: Since ductless systems have smaller mechanical components than standard split systems, they use less power. Another reason for their superior energy efficiency is that the absence of ductwork means that the air doesn’t lose or gain heat on the way to any given room.
- Zone Control Cooling and Heating: Each air handler in a ductless mini split system can be operated separately from the others. You only need to cool or heat the rooms that actually need it. Plus, people can adjust the temperature in whichever room they’re in.
- Improved Air Quality: Since ductwork can gather large amounts of dust and debris that can get blown out into your living space when the AC or heater comes on, ducted systems often contribute to a decline in air quality. Without ducts, this is not a problem.
