If you’re building a new home, remodeling, or updating your Richardson, TX, home’s heating and cooling system, you might wonder if air ducts are really necessary. The answer is no. With a ductless mini-split system, you can enjoy year-round comfort without the need for bulky, leaky, or noisy air ducts.
How Does This Type of System Both Heat and Cool Your Spaces?
A ductless mini-split system has an outdoor unit and an indoor unit. The indoor portion functions as an air handler. Air from your home is transported to the outdoor unit, which contains coils filled with a chemical refrigerant. The refrigerant can absorb or release heat energy. In the wintertime, the refrigerant absorbs heat from the outdoor air and is fed into the conduit, where it warms your home. The unit has a reversing valve that allows it to switch to the cooling function in the summer months of the year. In the summertime, the refrigerant absorbs heat from your home and releases it into the outdoor air. The indoor unit’s air handler has a fan, which blows the heated or cooled air throughout your living space.
Installation Requirements for Ductless Mini-Split Systems
Ductless mini-split systems can be installed in any room of your home. The interior unit will need access to an exterior wall for running the conduit to the outdoor unit. The indoor unit can be placed on a wall or ceiling.
How To Control Your Ductless Mini-Split System
Ductless mini-split systems are controlled with a thermostat. If you’ve chosen a zoned setup, each zone will have its own thermostat. The thermostats have a touchscreen and remote control. If you’ve chosen a smart thermostat, you can also control the heating and cooling system with the thermostat’s app on your phone or tablet.
