Ductless cooling and heating systems can be the perfect answer for your Seattle home. It’s a low-maintenance option for upgrading your HVAC system. The ductless system works, obviously, with no ducts, as a traditional forced air unit. Instead this system has an outdoor compressor unit located against the house or building. This makes it highly adaptable to many rooms and needs.
The inside unit is typically mounted high up on a wall of the room where the cooling is needed. A small hole, with approximately a three-inch diameter, is cut to the outside where the lines providing electricity, drainage, and refrigerant can come from the outdoor unit. Sometimes these units are also called mini-splits, multi-splits, and variable refrigerant flow systems. Call Ballard for a recommendation on where in your home a ductless system will work best.
Many homes are now adding multiple units or “zones” throughout the entire house. If you have these multiple zones in your home, you can control the temperature on a per-room basis, instead of cranking up your system for the whole home. Many times, as much as 20 percent of the air lost through ducts is through holes or leaks. The ductless system bypasses that issue and offers efficiency, like indoor geothermal without going geothermal.
While ductless systems require little maintenance, the installation does require a professional. The certified technicians at Ballard Natural Gas Service have the expertise required and would be happy to answer any installation questions you may have. Always be sure any installing company has a license before hiring them for the work. There are nuances to any installation that only a licensed contractor can know and address.
You can also talk to us about the health benefits to installing a ductless system in your Seattle home. Without needing ductwork, the health concerns about what could be growing or blowing through your home via the ducts is eliminated. And right there is another added savings––no ductwork cleaning ever needed.
