Living in an older home, temperature control can be a struggle. The walls of my house are constructed of plaster and lath, and there is no conventional duct system installed. Trying to implement a whole-house, forced air heating and system would be horribly expensive, invasive and messy. For awhile, we tried to get by with window air conditioners, box fans and electric baseboard heaters. I was not happy with the appearance of the equipment or the level of comfort. I started looking into different types of systems to provide affordable whole-house temperature control and settled on a ductless multi-split system. It only took the HVAC contractor two days to install the new system, and there was no need to tear into walls and nothing to clean up. The ductless system simply required a three-inch hole through exterior walls to accommodate a conduit that links the outdoor and indoor components. A single outdoor compressor serves eight indoor air handlers that are mounted up high on the walls of individual rooms. Each air handler provides both heating and cooling capacity and includes an independent thermostat. We’re able to customize temperature to personal preference and occupancy. There’s no need to heat or cool empty rooms, and with wifi connectivity, programming and adjustments are super convenient. Plus, the ductless system offers exceptional dehumidification, air filtration and energy efficiency. It includes inverter technology which automatically adjusts capacity to the changing needs of the home, supplying only the exact amount of heating or cooling necessary to maintain consistent and ideal temperature. We are totally happy with the comfort provided by the ductless multi-split system.
