There Are Many Benefits to Going Ductless - Niagara Region
If you live in an older home that has no central air conditioning, you may find yourself wondering how you’ll survive the summer. Fans and open windows can only cool you off so much on a hot summer day! Rather than go through the trouble and expense of installing a ducted AC system in a home that wasn’t designed for it, invest in a ductless air conditioning system from Evans Heating & Cooling instead.
What is a ductless ac system, you may ask? Like a central air conditioner, a ductless mini split has an indoor unit and an outdoor unit connected by refrigerant lines; however, unlike a central AC, a ductless system requires no ductwork to cool your home. Instead, up to four wall-mounted indoor units can be connected to a single outdoor unit, allowing you to create comfort zones in your home and fully customize your cooling experience.
Prices for ductless split systems and air conditioner units in Ontario and other Canadian provinces normally range from $3,000 to $5,000, but can reach $8,000 or more per unit, including installation. Depending on the brand and manufacturer, prices will vary.
Yes, they work very well. Essentially in a mini-split system, individual indoor units are positioned in each room or "zone". Instead of pushing and drawing air to a central indoor unit, each room will have its own fan and evaporator unit to meet its own cooling demands. Refrigerant lines link the fan and evaporator unit to an outside compressor unit. On its journey to the compressor, the air is cooled and then returned to the interior unit, which circulates it around the room. There are no ducts needed making it very convenient to install!
Mini-split systems with no ducts are actually very energy-efficient. When compared to traditional room air conditioners such as window units and portable air conditioners, a ductless mini-split cooling system may save up to 30% on energy expenditures. This is due to their zoned cooling capabilities and ductless air distribution. Mini-split equipment saves energy by utilizing high-efficiency technologies.
Why Choose a Ductless Mini Split System
- Energy-Efficient - Mini split AC systems are one of the most energy-efficient air conditioning options available on the market today. Because they are zoned, you can use your air conditioning only in the rooms where you need it rather than paying to cool your whole house.
- Low-Maintenance - Ductless mini splits also require very little maintenance when compared with central AC units, and they are built to last. A well-maintained ductless AC will meet your cooling needs for over 20 years.
- Quiet & Unobtrusive - Ductless air conditioners are discreetly mounted high on the wall, where they won’t interfere with your decor, and they operate in virtual silence. You’ll be able to enjoy your home’s environment without distractions or undue noise.
