Ductless Air ConditioningLa Grange, IL, Summit, IL, Oak Lawn, IL, Chicago, IL, Riverside, IL & Palos Heights, IL
If you have a wall or a ceiling, there’s a cooling system that’s right for you. No major remodeling to accommodate ductwork, very little mess to install, no losing the view from your window, and yet you’ll enjoy refreshingly cool home temperatures on the hottest day of the year. That’s the beauty of ductless air conditioning. Also known as mini-split systems, ductless air conditioning integrates neatly into your living space. Mounted high on the wall, or even the ceiling, they are both aesthetic and effective, quietly and gently directing temperature controlled air to every corner of the room. Call Wantuck Comfort Solutions for a consultation in the Chicago area, and our cooling specialists would be happy to design the perfect system to answer your comfort needs.
Ductless mini-splits are a compact central air unit with the flexibility of cooling or heating one room or more. Comprised of an indoor evaporator and outdoor condensing unit, they cool only the zones you require, so aren’t paying to condition areas that no one is occupying. Since air handlers are independently controlled and each room enjoys its own thermostat, you’ll be able to satisfy personal preferences, differentiating temperatures room to room.
The outdoor unit can be located as far away as fifty feet from the indoor evaporator. This allows it to be tucked away in a more advantageous or inconspicuous space. The indoor air handler can be suspended from the ceiling, mounted flush into a drop ceiling or mounted on a wall. Average size of an indoor unit is about seven inches deep.
Ductless A/C vs. Retrofitting Ductwork
Retrofitting a home for ductwork necessitates cutting holes in walls, floors, ceilings and even losing precious closet space. The mess involved can be discouraging. Mini-splits require a small 3 to 4 inch hole in an exterior wall. Since there are no ducts leaking treated air, ductless systems lose less than 5% cooling, saving you money in energy consumption. In conventional systems, ductwork losses can add up to 30% of energy consumption, especially if the ducts are located in unconditioned spaces such as the attic or basement.
Mini-split systems utilize inverter technology, which allows the system to easily adjust its speed to meet the heating and cooling demand of the home. The sound generated by the indoor air handler is normally between 21 and 30 decibels, about the equivalent of a whisper, and nearly half of a conventional unit’s operational noise. The outdoor condensing unit averages around 60 decibels, which is the equivalent of a normal conversation.
