Ductless Air Systems in San Antonio, TX
For years, central cooling and heating was something that people associated with ventilation networks made up of metal and plastic ducts winding through walls and floors to reach room vents. Although many homes still use such systems, there’s now an alternative when it comes to forced-air heating and cooling: ductless air systems. If you want to learn more about how these systems operate, or if you want to schedule repairs or maintenance for your current ductless system, call Riteway Service Company. We are experienced comfort technicians who serve the San Antonio area with the service that keeps homes comfortable throughout the year.
The HVAC professionals at Riteway Service Company offer services for ductless air systems in San Antonio, TX and the surrounding areas.
How Do Ductless Air Systems Work?
A ductless air system, also known as a ductless mini split heat pump, is similar in many ways to an air conditioner: it consists of an outdoor unit with a compressor that pumps refrigerant around the system and releases heat to the outside, and an indoor unit that absorbs heat and then blows cool air inside the dwelling.
But with a ductless system, there are multiple indoor units, rather than a single one that connects to ductwork. Each of these small air handlers is mounted on the wall of a different room, where it absorbs heat with a refrigerant coil and blows the cool air straight into the room without ducts. And because ductless air systems are also heat pumps, they can reverse the direction they move refrigerant and also act as heaters that blow warm air into the rooms.
Reasons You Should Consider Installation of a Ductless System
Why should you think about installation of ductless mini split system rather than a standard central heater or air conditioner? Look over this list of benefits:
- Energy efficiency: The lack of ductwork in these systems helps them lose less energy through the ventilation system walls. A ductless mini split should reduce your electrical bills.
- Zone control: Since the air handlers can be controlled separately from each other, you only need to turn on the ones in rooms that require heating/cooling. No need to condition the whole house!
- Flexibility: Ductless systems are great for new home construction, remodeling, and add–on rooms because they remove the necessity to plan around space–consuming ductwork.
Talk to a professional HVAC installer first to see if going with a ductless mini split is the ideal choice for your house.
