An investment in a sunroom for your home is great to extend your living space outdoors. These home additions are often done on a budget and without air conditioning, which make them difficult to enjoy during the summer months and sometimes unbearable due to the heat. Adding ductless heat and cooling to these spaces is a great way to enjoy them all year.
The Design of Mini-Split Ductless Air Conditioning Systems
Ductless systems are air conditioners without the ductwork, but a mini-split system has another difference; the air handler and outdoor unit are separate pieces of equipment. Unlike a single unit; mini-split systems allow you to locate the air handler inside your home for the most efficient and practical solution. The air handlers can even be installed on interior inside or partition wall. In addition, with a split ductless system, you also have the choice of adding more air handlers inside your home to air condition multiple rooms and large spaces.
The Spaces That Adding Ductless AC Will Be the Best Choice
The ductless air conditioning design is a practical solution for adding AC anywhere in your home where it is needed. The ductless AC units are great solutions for areas like sunrooms, home additions, basements, garages and shops. With the mini-split system, you can even use a single unit to add air handlers to multiple areas, such as the sunroom and a garage workshop. There is also little extra cost for adding AC to several areas when you initially have the system installed.
Choosing the Right Ductless System for Your Heating and Cooling Needs
The ductless systems on the market today have various features for different heating and cooling need. An affordable solution for adding cooling to a sunroom is to use a single unit that only has AC. In some areas of your home, you may want to add some systems that also provides heating; many modern systems have a heat pump that works in reverse to provide heating in the winter months. Larger systems are also available that allow you to connect several indoor air handlers to a single outdoor unit, which is good if you need to add heating and cooling to multiple spaces in your home.
