Following the recession of ’08, when new construction work really started to scale back, Snellville Heating, Air and Plumbing shifted its focus from new construction homes and light commercial work to more residential service and replacement projects. Our focus is now 100% on our customers and their needs, and we regularly outfit existing homes with new, efficient HVAC systems to replace those that have run their course.
Ductless systems in Snellville, GA are growing more and more popular, and we encourage homeowners looking to install a system in a new home or to replace an existing system to consider the ductless mini split seriously. We find innovative solutions to improve performance for our clients, and making the switch to ductless heating and cooling is one way to enjoy that improved performance in many cases.
Ductless? Heating and Cooling? What’s Going On Here?
No, those are not typos. We really are talking about a whole–house HVAC system that is able to both heat and cool your home, and to do so without the use of any air ducts. The first thing to know is that the ductless mini split is a type of heat pump, and that it uses individual, wall–mounted blowers rather than a central air handler and ductwork.
While there are cooling–only models available, most homeowners find the heat pump option too enticing to pass up. The ductless mini split evaporates refrigerant indoors in the summer, drawing heat out of the air in the house and releasing it outside. In the winter, this process is reversed. Refrigerant evaporates in the outdoor unit, is compressed, and is then condensed indoors in order to heat the living space.
How Does the Ductless System Installation Work?
While ductless mini splits transfer heat via the refrigerant process in the same way as traditional air–source heat pumps, the system design and installation differs greatly. The wall–mounted blower units handle the indoor evaporating/condensing of refrigerant, depending upon which mode the system is in. Each unit is controlled independently of the others with its own thermostat.
This allows you to maintain different temperatures in different areas of the house, and the elimination of ductwork from the equation helps to further boost energy efficiency and protects indoor air quality. Plus, because the indoor and outdoor units are connected via a simple conduit containing power, refrigerant, and drainage lines, the installation is ideal for existing properties/replacement jobs.
