In addition to costing a small fortune, most ductwork retrofitting projects cause a host of concerns:
- Ducting that’s difficult to conceal
- Energy loss via exposed and uninsulated ductwork
- Changes in the look, feel, and size of building interiors
Comparatively, ductless mini-split installation is both non-invasive and easy. Our HVAC technicians divide homes into two or more cooling zones. We drill small-sized holes into the exterior wall of each zone. These holes usually measure three inches in diameter or less.
Next, our mini-split installers pass copper refrigerant tubing and electrical wires through these openings to connect indoor air handlers to a single, outside condenser unit.
With ductless air conditioning, all air handlers come with separate thermostats. These allow all building residents to control the temperature in their immediate areas independently.
Unlike central air conditioning that cools all areas of a home down uniformly, ductless mini-splits allow homeowners to selectively cool occupied areas only. This is but one of many ways in which ductless AC minimizes energy waste.
If you already have central air conditioning in your Ladera Heights home, you can still use mini-split air conditioning to create a cooler and more comfortable living environment.
You can use a ductless mini-split to service an attic bedroom, ventilate your garage, or bring cooled air into any other area of the building that isn’t serviced by your central HVAC system.
