Three Things That You Will Want To Know Before Your Install A Ductless System

by Chris Bowman

Ductless air conditioners can be a great solution if you want to add AC to your home. There are also many different choices when installing these AC systems, such as a split system or the size of the system you have installed. If you are ready to have a ductless system installed in your home, here are a few things that you will want to consider first:

1. Choosing The Right Tonnage Needed To Cool Your Home

The first thing that you will want to consider when looking for a ductless AC is the tonnage. You will want to have a system that provides enough energy to cool the cubic air space of your home. For a larger system, you may need to have more than one system to provide you with the cooling you need. You can use a split system, or you may want to consider using separate systems for the different floors of your home, but this can raise the cost.

2. Deciding On AC Only Or A Heating And Cooling Solution

You may just want to have a cooling system for your home, but ductless systems can also include heating features. If you want to have a complete HVAC solution, you may want to consider an AC system that also has heating. This is something that will likely cost you a little more, but it can provide your home with both heating and cooling in one system. If you are installing a ductless system in a small home, a heating and cooling system may be a more practical choice for your needs.

3. Using A Split System To Give Your Home Zoned AC

There are also split systems that you may want to consider if you want to have a zoned AC system. These systems have several indoor units connected to a single outdoor heat pump unit. A split system can be a good solution for homes that need cooling on more than one floor or a large floor plan that is not open. Using a split system for a zoned AC design can also help to make your system more energy efficient.

These are some of the things that you may want to consider before installing a ductless AC system in your home. If you are ready to have a new AC installed in your home, contact an HVAC contractor like Bishop Plumbing, Heating and Cooling and talk with them about installing ductless in your home.
