A ductless HVAC system is comprised of a small outdoor unit and one or more indoor units. These units require nothing more than mounting capabilities and access to electricity. Traditional heat pumps and central air conditioning systems force cooled and heated air through ducts. Compare that to ductless heating and cooling systems that deliver air directly into different zones.
Sometimes referred to as split systems, mini split systems, multi-split systems, or split-ductless systems, ductless heating and cooling systems offer a cost-effective way to replace inefficient window air conditioning units, space heaters, and electric baseboard heaters. You can install these units in home additions, new construction, condominiums, and apartments. They’re also ideal to improve temperature control in specific rooms. Ductless systems can even be fit for buildings that currently use forced-air systems.
A ductless HVAC system is a year-round heating and cooling solution for both homes and businesses. Here’s why!
How Ductless Systems Help in the Spring
A ductless HVAC system is great for the Spring when pollen counts soar and everyone tends to have a runny nose.
Indoor air quality can actually be lower than the quality of outdoor air. With traditional HVAC systems, air ducts must be professionally cleaned on a regular basis, and even after cleaning, dust and allergens are left behind. A ductless HVAC system, on the other hand, offers multi-stage filtration that can drastically reduce dust, bacteria, pollen, allergens and other particulates in the air.
This isn’t only helpful for allergens; it’s also a huge benefit during wildfire season when the air can be filled with smoke. Having exceptional indoor air quality is essential all year long.
Using a Ductless HVAC System in the Heat of Summer
Remember the sound of music from the ice cream truck as it started to drive down your street? Spending summer inside a home or business that uses a ductless HVAC system is just as sweet.
Ductless systems offer Zoned Comfort Solutions, which means you can set different temperatures for each area of the house. No matter how hot it is outside, it’s comfortable inside. That sunroom addition with all the gorgeous windows is just as comfortable as your bedroom with the shades pulled.
And because ductless systems are so energy efficient, you won’t have sticker shock when your utility bill arrives.
Ductless Systems are Reliable When Fall Temperatures Aren’t
Will it be 80 degrees today? Or 40? The weatherman doesn’t know. But even without a reliable forecast, your ductless HVAC system will keep you comfortable. Whether you live in a historic home, or you have a newer home built on a cement slab, you’re guaranteed to be comfortable when you use your ductless system during the fall.
As summer starts to release its grip on the Gold Country, you’ll stay comfortable in a unit that’s Whisper Quiet. You never have to hear the disruptive clanging of a central air system turning on and off again. With our systems, that noise is a thing of the past.
Rely on Your Ductless System When Old Man Winter Arrives
Northern California isn’t a climate most would consider “extremely cold,” but there are days here that are brutally cold. A ductless HVAC system has Hyper-Heating, which includes significant advancements in heat pump technology.
- Hyper-Heating H2i® is designed to provide comfortable indoor temperatures in extreme cold-climate conditions (as low as -13° F) while saving energy and money.
- INVERTER zoning systems deliver only the amount of hot air needed to achieve the desired temperature, meaning you use significantly less energy than traditional units.
- Hot-Start technology ensures you feel warm air immediately.
When you use a ductless HVAC system in the winter, you will no longer need supplemental heat sources to maintain comfort.
