Ductless Mini Splits to Heat & Cool Your Whole House
We are continually impressed with the heating and cooling abilities of ductless mini split systems. We have done entire houses in the 1200 square-foot range with single ductless heat pump units, and have had consistently great results. The ability of ductless mini splits to bring the home to temperature, and then scale back to a lower setting to maintain that temperature, is unparalleled with any other type of heating and air conditioning system. Multi-zone ductless systems can also be installed, for those homeowners who would like to have indoor units in different areas of the home. The indoor units can be controlled independently for precise temperature control throughout the home. Many homeowners choose to have one ductless unit in the main living area, and one in their master bedroom. With this type of system, you could keep the bedroom a couple degrees cooler than the rest of the home, which people generally like. We have also installed single zone ductless systems in conjunction with a heat recovery ventilator (HRV). A HRV is a system designed to remove stale, dirty air from the home, and exhaust it to the outside, while bringing fresh air from outside into the home. The heat from the air being pulled from inside the house is used to heat the incoming air from the outdoors. Think of it as an open window that doesn’t allow the heat in the house to escape to the outside. HRV’s allow fresh air into your home without the security issues of leaving windows open. They provide very efficient, safe ventilation, and also allow us to recirculate the heat from a mini split system to other areas of the home. The HRV & single head ductless method is what we used to heat & cool the home featured in the video above. Ductless mini splits are very adaptive to almost any home, and there are many different options available to make your home as comfortable and efficient as it can be.
