Do your kids complain about your home being too hot all the time? Or do you constantly feel too cold while the rest of your family is doing just fine? Everyone in Sarasota, Florida, has their own individual optimum level of comfort, and the real challenge is keeping everyone satisfied. Fortunately, ductless HVAC units can help everyone in your home, no matter what their preference, reach that optimum comfort level. Since ductless units aren’t hindered by ducts, you can separate your home into zones, which raises both your comfort and efficiency.
What Makes Ductless Systems Different?
It’s all in the name. While a standard central HVAC system uses a duct network to distribute heated or cooled air throughout your home, a ductless system does away with that network. Instead, a refrigerant is pumped directly through an outdoor compressor unit and into air handling units placed on the walls or floors of your living space, and fans blow air from the handler straight into your rooms. Each unit heats or cools its own area of your home.
Removing the ducts does more than allow you to customize the placement of the air handling units; doing so also saves you from the inefficiency that ducts can cause.
What are Zones?
Since you’re working directly with the unit, you have nearly unlimited customization options. No longer do you need to design your rooms in such a way that the flow of air from vents and heat registers go unhindered. You can install air handlers anywhere on your wall, floor, or ceiling. Each room, with its ductless unit and attached thermostat, constitutes a zone. You can keep each zone at a different temperature, ensuring that everyone is comfortable. Plus, focusing your temperature control on the rooms of your home that are actually used raises efficiency and reduces utility costs.
If you’re looking for some way to keep everyone in your home comfortable without sacrificing your own comfort, consider installing a ductless system. To see the benefits of ductless zoning firsthand, call Climatic at (941) 758-3080.
