Ductless Systems in Whittier, CA
Have you had it with the noisy, leaky, ugly, and inefficient window units that you’ve been using to cool your home in the summer? Is there an area of your residential or commercial property that just does not get warm enough during the winter season? Are you over the “thermostat wars” that your family or members of your workforce engage in, because different individuals are comfortable at different temperatures?
Well, if you’ve answered “yes” to any of these questions, then you should definitely consider using a ductless mini split system. These systems have much to offer home and commercial property owners, including many benefits that more traditional heating and cooling systems can’t match. If you do decide to invest in a ductless mini split in Whittier, CA, remember to schedule your services with the pros at Greenleaf Heating & Cooling.
How Do Ductless Mini Splits Work?
As you’ve probably determined on your own, a ductless mini split system does not use air ducts in its operation. Instead, an outdoor unit is connected to individual, wall–mounted blowers that are installed within the house. These blowers are connected to the outdoor unit via a simple conduit containing power, refrigerant, and, as necessary, drainage lines. Typically, an outdoor unit can accommodate up to four blowers.
The indoor units are controlled independently of one another, with each heating or cooling the area in which it is installed directly. That’s right: heating or cooling. Because ductless mini splits use heat pump technology, you get both in one system. This is just one of the benefits that you can enjoy when you go ductless.
Benefits of Ductless Heating and Ductless Air Conditioning
As mentioned above, heat pumps are quite versatile. Ductless mini split heat pumps are no exception. In the summer, they act like regular air conditioners. Refrigerant is evaporated indoors, and the cool air is blown into the house. The difference with a ductless system is that the wall–mounted units handle this themselves, rather than using one central unit with ductwork.
In the winter, the process is reversed. Heat from the air outside is absorbed as refrigerant is evaporated. That refrigerant is then compressed. The hot refrigerant makes its way to the blowers, where it is condensed and used to heat the house. This operation offers many benefits.
- Efficiency. Because there is no ductwork, there is no risk of duct leaks. That helps to boost efficiency. Plus, the heat transfer process used in the winter means that your heating requires only a small amount of electricity. No new heat is generated, which really improves heating efficiency.
- Air Quality. The air leaking out of compromised ductwork is of major concern. So too are the pollutants that can make their way into the system. By eliminating the need for ductwork, you can help to protect your indoor air quality by eliminating the distribution of pollutants throughout the house.
- Comfort. The wall–mounted blowers are independently controlled. That means that you can set different temperatures in your home or offices. No longer will you have to heat or cool all areas to one temperature, allowing for improved comfort even as your energy costs fall.
