I Have an Old House: What Are My Cooling Options?

Owning an old, or even historic, home provides a lot of pleasures. When dealing with the aesthetics and structural integrity of an older home, though, the last thing that you want to do is to tear that property up in order to modernize its heating and cooling systems. If you think that this means you are limited to the use of inefficient, inconvenient window AC units, though, think again. With minimal disruption to your old home, we can outfit your residence with an efficient, elegant HVAC system. If it sounds too good to be true, know that the answer lies in the use of a ductless mini split system in Chapin, SC.

How Does Ductless Heating and Cooling Work?

That is not a typo: when you use a ductless mini split system, you actually get both a heating and a cooling system in one convenient package. As you’ve probably deduced, such systems do not necessitate the use of air ducts in their operation in order to distribute conditioned air throughout the house. Instead, they use individual dampers that are mounted to the walls, or even recessed in the ceiling, to do so. This means that you won’t have to worry about breaking into your walls in order to install ductwork. Because heat pump technology is used by these systems, you can reverse their operation in order to heat your home with great efficiency during the winter, in addition to using it to effectively cool your home in the summer season.

Just because ductwork is not required in such systems, we should point out, does not mean that their installation is any simple undertaking. It is vital that your blowers are connected to the outdoor unit via their power, refrigerant and drainage lines correctly. It is also vital that the individual thermostats controlling the individual blower at hand are installed properly. When you schedule your ductless mini split system installation with a member of our team, you need have no doubt about it.
