Because each air handler features an independent temperature control, we’re able to customize the temperature in each individual room
I prefer the unique charm of my older home. It features the original hardwood floors, moldings, doors and banisters. The important windows allow in a fantastic deal of sunlight and offer a charming view however also leak air. The high ceilings trap heat and cause temperature stratification. The air duct was designed before numerous renovations were completed. The layout of the supply and return vents doesn’t accommodate the current floorplan officially! For multiple years, we struggled with the upstairs bedrooms feeling boiling and sticky and the study room feeling freezing. With a single temperature control, there was no way to target certain rooms. I looked into updating to zone control, however the air duct couldn’t support it. There was no way my partner and I were willing to destroy the architectural integrity of our home by splitting down walls and ceilings and installing a whole current duct system. I finally got exhausted of using window cooling systems, box fans and portable electric furnaces to compensate. I did some research and discovered ductless heat pumps. This offered the ideal solution, then a ductless system consists of an outdoor compressor that affixs by way of a slender conduit to numerous indoor air handlers. The upgrade required little more than a three-inch hole in an exterior wall and created no mess or disruption. The air handlers are lightweight, compact and mounted up high on the wall, They operate quietly and provide both heating and cooling. Because each air handler features an independent temperature control, we’re able to customize the temperature in each individual room. The ductless system allows zone control, provides energy efficient performance and has significantly improved the comfort of the home.
