Duct-Less AC

Duct-Less AC

For decades, ductless air conditioning, often called split-zone air conditioning, has been the most popular air conditioning technology worldwide. Over the years, its popularity has rapidly increased in Canada because it delivers year-round comfort. 
Our ductless heating and air conditioning systems have three central units: an outdoor unit, indoor unit, and a remote controller. As the name implies, ductless systems require no ductwork. Installation is straightforward and consists of mounting the outdoor and indoor units and connecting them via refrigerant and electrical lines. A separate controller regulates each zone. The lack of ductwork and the capability for zoned temperature control make ductless heating and cooling systems ideal for a number of applications:

  • Rooms that are unevenly heated or cooled
  • Aging homes that have no ductwork
  • Enclosed porches
  • Home offices
  • Notable homes that want to retain their historic integrity
  • Tight spaces such as attics or crawlspaces

Ductless HVAC system, How It Works:









          ​ 
     
           The main advantages of mini splits are their small size and flexibility for zoning or heating and cooling individual rooms. Many                      models can have as many as Five indoor air handling units (for Five zones or rooms) connected to one outdoor unit. The number                depends on how much heating or cooling is required for the building or each zone (which in turn is affected by how well the                          building is insulated). Since each of the zones will have its own thermostat, you only need to condition that place when someone is              there. This will save energy and money.

           Ductless mini-split systems are also often easier to install than other types of space conditioning systems. For example, the hook-                up between the outdoor and indoor units generally requires only a two-inch hole through a wall for the conduit. Also, most                          manufacturers of this type of system can provide a variety of lengths of connecting conduits. If necessary, you can locate the                       outdoor unit as far away as 160 feet from the indoor evaporator. This makes it possible to cool rooms on the front side of a                          building house with the compressor in a more advantageous or inconspicuous place on the outside of the building.

           Since mini splits have no ducts, they avoid the energy losses associated with ductwork of central forced air systems. Duct losses can            account for more than 30% of energy consumption for space conditioning, especially if the ducts are in an unconditioned space                  such as an attic.

           In comparison to other add-on systems, mini splits offer more flexibility in interior design options. The indoor air handlers can be                suspended from a ceiling, mounted flush into a drop ceiling, or hung on a wall. Floor-standing models are also available. Most                      indoor units have profiles of about seven inches deep and usually come with sleek, high tech-looking jackets. Many also offer a                    remote control to make it easier to turn the system on and off when it's positioned high on a wall or suspended from a ceiling.

           Split-systems can also help to keep your home safer since there is only a small hole in the wall. Through-the-wall and window                      mounted room air-conditioners can provide an easy entrance for intruders.
