We are proud to be a Port Richey, FL air conditioning company that offers ductless mini split installation, repair, maintenance, and other services. The technology of ductless mini splits (a.k.a. ductless mini split heat pumps) is relatively new to homes in the US, although they’re already popular in many businesses. As more people discover the advantages of having ductless heating and cooling systems, the more people want them installed for their homes.
But going ductless isn’t ideal for all situations. If you live in a house with extensive ductwork for an existing central AC and heater, a ductless heat pump usually isn’t the best choice for system replacement—you’ll want to benefit the most from having a ventilation system already in place. However, there are still situations when having a ductless mini split is a good idea. Below we’ve listed times when going ductless has big advantages.
The old ductless house
There are many homes in Florida built without central ductwork: they don’t have heating systems and rely on window ACs for cooling. If you live in a house like this and never believed you could enjoy central heating and cooling, the ductless heat pump is here to change that. This is one of the best uses for this system—you get rid of those ugly window units and have cooling for all the rooms that need it, all without having to find a way to put in ducts.
Are you planning to do any significant changes to your house that would also affect the HVAC system? This may be the right time to get rid of the central AC and reclaim the space from the ductwork. You can put in a great ductless system and remodel your house without limitations.
The add-on room or repurposed space
Putting in a room addition for your house creates a conundrum with a central AC and heating system. The current system may not be capable of handling more space, and the construction work necessary can be extensive. However, you can simply have a ductless system installed for the single new room, making it independent of the rest of the HVAC system. This also works for converting a garage or attic, a place without a connection to the ductwork. In fact, any hard to cool or heat spot can benefit from a ductless system.
New home construction
You have plans to build your own house, and maybe you want to save space and create a smaller and more efficient living area. Or you just want to avoid dealing with ducts. In either situation, a ductless HVAC system is perfect—no ductwork to consider, a lot more space to work with.
Indoor air quality concerns
Because ductless systems don’t have a ventilation system that collects dust and other contaminants in it, they provide much cleaner air to a house. This makes ductless systems helpful for people who suffer from allergy and asthma.
