“1. They Offer Highly Flexible Solutions
Whereas traditional heat pumps and central air conditioning systems force cooled and heated air through ducts, ductless heating and cooling systems deliver air directly into different zones. They are comprised of a small outdoor unit and one or more indoor units that require nothing more than mounting capabilities and access to electricity.
2. They Save You Money
One of the biggest reasons why homeowners switch to ductless heating and cooling is overall cost savings. In recent years, utility costs across the country have skyrocketed. When a home’s temperature depends upon an inefficient system, monthly bills can quickly climb out of control. Ductless heating and air conditioning systems operate on less power – they are smaller than traditional forced-air systems, and because the temperature-controlled air is delivered directly into a room, there is no loss in efficiency. Multi-split systems also allow homeowners to create “zones” in their home, which means they no longer have to cool or heat rooms that aren’t occupied.
3. They Improve Indoor Air Quality – Happy Breathing!
Often times, the quality of indoor air can actually be lower than the quality of outdoor air. With traditional HVAC systems, air ducts must be professionally cleaned on a regular basis, and even after cleaning, dust and allergens are left behind. Ductless air conditioning and heating systems, on the other hand, offer multi-stage filtration that can drastically reduce dust, bacteria, pollen, allergens and other particulates in the air.”

Depending on your needs, you may wish to opt-for a single-zone or multi-zone ductless system. As the name implies, a single-zone system is great for controlling the temperature of one room. A multi-zone system, on the other hand, connects to several indoor units allowing you to adjust temperatures in many rooms or zones. Multi-zone systems may also use a sub-system called Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) which makes it possible to heat one zone while cooling another.
At Temperature Control Specialties we install both single-zone and multi-zone ductless systems. Call us at (317) 247-7663 or visit our ductless systems page to learn more.
