Need a New AC? Why Not Go Ductless?

Here in Vermont, summer can really take its time to get rolling. When it does, though, it can bring the heat and the humidity with the best of’em. If you want to keep your home cool and comfortable throughout the hottest time of the year, you need more than a great AC system. You also need great AC technicians to install and service that system, and you’ll fine them when you work with the pros on our staff. If you are thinking about replacing your home cooling system before summer gets going, or if you’ve been relying upon window units to cool your home thus far, we recommend that you serious consider a ductless mini split heat pump in Springfield, VT.

What Is a Ductless Cooling System?

A ductless cooling system, as you’ve probably deduced, is an air conditioning system that does not rely upon ductwork in order to distribute cooled air throughout one’s home. Instead, individual, wall-mounted blowers are installed throughout the house, and they are connected to an outdoor unit with power, refrigerant, and drainage lines. These blowers are controlled independently of one another, and a typical outdoor unit can support up to four of them. While designated AC models are available, we advise homeowners to opt for the heat pump model, for reasons we’ll explain below.

Why Choose a Ductless Split Heat Pump?

When you use a heat pump of any kind, you are getting an heating and cooling system in one convenient package. In the winter, the system will pull ambient heat from the air outside, compress the refrigerant, and use that thermal energy to very efficiently heat one’s home. In the summer, the process is reversed, and the system removes heat from the home. With a ductless split heat pump, you avoid issues with faulty ductwork entirely, helping you to protect your indoor air quality and your energy efficiency as well. Plus, because the blowers are all independently controlled, you won’t have to cool your entire house to just one temperature throughout.
