Do you ever find yourself in a room that’s too hot even though you’re running a central air conditioning system or window A/C unit?
At Needham Oil Complete Heating & Cooling, we talk to many homeowners in Norfolk and Middlesex Counties who are dealing with precisely this kind of issue. In the height of summer in our part of Massachusetts, it’s more than a bit aggravating to end up sweating in your own home.
Often, the best solution to fix this problem is a ductless mini-split AC system. These fantastic devices provide efficient, long-lasting A/C to just about any room you need. And the Needham Oil team is proud to be a Diamond Preferred Contractor of Mitsubishi Electric products, some of the top mini-splits on the market.
A ductless mini-split cools your rooms by absorbing warm indoor air and expelling the heat outside. The system comprises an indoor air handler that draws in warm air and returns cooled air, as well as an outdoor unit that connects to your indoor equipment via a thin pipe.
Multiple indoor units can connect to a single outdoor unit.
Ductless mini-split systems can also supply heat during cooler months by drawing in warmth from outside and delivering it to your rooms. This can reduce how much you need to use your gas or oil-fired heating equipment.
Before central air conditioning became widespread in the U.S. in the mid-20th century, many houses didn’t have ducts. If your home uses a boiler system and radiators in the winter, there’s a good chance you don’t have ductwork.
In this circumstance, a ductless mini-split system is an excellent long-term A/C option. We can typically install a ductless system in one day, with minimal impact on your home except for hanging equipment and running lines. By contrast, adding ductwork can be incredibly price and will turn your home into a construction zone for days.
And mini-splits have significant advantages over central air systems. Each indoor air handler works independently, so you can keep some rooms cooler than others and save money.
Many homes with central A/C still install mini-splits to cool off individual rooms or spaces that their ductwork doesn’t reach. These include the following:
Ductless mini-splits are relatively compact and can reach just about any space to provide dependable cooling and supplemental heat.
Contact our team today if you think a ductless mini-split might be a good fit for your home air conditioning. As a Mitsubishi Electric Diamond Preferred Contractor, we can assess your cooling needs and identify a great, energy-efficient ductless system to meet them. Plus, our expert A/C service team will keep them running at peak performance for years to come.
