I debated for a while on whether or not I wanted to install a ductless mini split to improve the comfort of my home.
The home is pressing and old with lots of windows and high ceilings.
There have been several remodeling projects over the years, which have created some concerns with the number of vents in bizarre areas. Certain rooms tend to be tough to maintain at a comfortable temperature. They might feel harshly boiling in the summer time or freezing in the winter! One central control machine doesn’t allow room-by-room targeting and our heating/cooling system is too old to update to zone control. We’d need to tear out the HVAC duct, heater and air conditioner and beginning over. A much less costly and disruptive solution was a ductless mini split system. The upgrade was completed in a single afternoon and created no harm or mess. There is an outdoor compressor that is quite compact and beautifully quiet. It connects to four indoor air handlers by way of a slimconduit that houses the refrigerant, electric and draining lines. The air handlers offer a sleek design and both heating and cooling capacity. They are mounted up high on the wall and can be adjusted by way of a cordless remote or even an app on my iPhone. Because each one features an independent control unit, they cater to the particulars of the single room. My good friend and I have the ability to direct airflow, raise and lower fan speed and determine ideal temperature. The system features inverter technology, making operation especially energy efficient. The ductless system can be expected to last approximately twenty years.
