Among the different services for air conditioning installation in Delaware we offer our clients is installation of ductless mini split heat pumps, which provide both cooling and heating without the need to either put in ducts or use up window space. Ductless mini splits are fantastic ways for older homes to enjoy great heating and cooling while not having to make major alterations to find ways to stick in ductwork. They also work as excellent alternatives for new home construction—you can forget about squeezing ductwork into the blueprints.

However, you’re reading this and thinking, “I live in a house with built-in ducts. Is there any point in having a ductless system installed? What’s the benefit?”

It’s true that if you have a central ducted AC and heater in your house that you are better off staying with this type when you have a replacement. But this doesn’t entirely discount ductless systems. There are uses for ductless mini split heat pumps in homes with ducts. Below are a few of them.

Say Goodbye to Hot Spots in Your Home

Monday, July 23rd, 2018

couple-satisfied-with-temperature-recline-on-white-couchAre there some rooms in your home that always seem several degrees warmer than the rest of the house? Rooms upstairs and those facing the sun throughout the day usually get it the worst. In the HVAC industry, we actually have a term for those rooms: hot spots.

A basic air conditioning system won’t immediately fix hot spots, which can be frustrating. The last thing you want to do, though, is lower the AC further to try and beat the heat in those rooms. It’ll probably work, but now the other rooms in the house will be way too cold. Plus, you simply shouldn’t have to use more energy than you really want to.

There are two solutions for hot spots, one for each type of air conditioning setup: Duct and ductless systems.

ductless-heater-air-condtionerMost of us are used to centralized air conditioners and forced-air furnaces in our home. They generate cool air or hot air in a single locale and then blow it through your home via a system of ducts.

Could Ductless Air Conditioning Be Right for You?

Monday, May 15th, 2017

ductless-air-conditioningSpringtime is the time to evaluate the state of your air conditioner and decide if it’s time for a replacement. Doing so allows you to take advantage of the benefits before summer arrives, as well as preventing the breakdown of an old, worn air conditioner in the middle of a July heat wave. If you’re looking at a new system, you’re likely focused on a centralized air conditioner, which cools the air in a single location, then blows it into your home with a fan. But it’s not the only type of air conditioner out there, and if centralized systems don’t work for you for whatever reason, then you might want to consider installing a ductless air conditioner instead. How does it work and what kinds of benefits does it bring to you? Read on for the answers.

Benefits of Ductless Air Conditioning

Monday, July 4th, 2016

Summers in Lewes, DE are hot and humid, which makes an air conditioning system far more than a luxury. Most of us assume that means a centralized system, which are inexpensive to run and very efficient. But they’re not the only system out there, and depending on your circumstances, a different system nay be much more efficient. Take ductless air conditioning systems, for example. They use multiple small units instead of one big one, spaced throughout your home and each charged with cooling a single room or section. Smaller homes and homes without efficiency issues may do better with a centralized system, but even in those cases, the potential benefits are chard to deny.
