Many Trane systems are floor units, while others can be wall-mounted.

Do you have a historic home?

Some homes were built before in-home, duct-driven air conditioning became a popular amenity. As a result, they don’t have ductwork to support normal air conditioning solutions, and the addition of ducts would ruin the historical value of the home or be a major renovation project costing thousands and thousands of dollars. A ductless system is perfect for these kind of homes. With minimal intrusion, a mini-split allows enormous flexibility, with either floor units or wall-mounted ones.

Just because you live in an older home doesn’t mean you have to live in the nineteenth century. Give Air Control a call to learn about our wide selection of ductless systems.

Do you have an addition to your home?

If so, it may be unrealistic or impossible to route ducts to this new addition. Ductless systems were built for these kind of setups. Since they don’t require ductwork to be installed, they’re perfect for garages, closed-in patios, workshops, or added rooms where it’s not feasible to put ducts. Plus, ductless cooling and heating solutions will allow you to only condition the air in that addition when you need it. So, if you have a new guest room or mother-in-law suite, a ductless system will let you turn on comfort when people are staying with you, and turn it off when they’re not there.

In addition, not using ducts can make your indoor air quality that much better.

Are you trying to make your home more energy efficient?

In most cases, ductless cooling and heating systems can help you save energy—and thus save you on your monthly energy bills. One of the reasons that ductless systems are more energy efficient is because cooled or heated air loses energy rapidly as its pushed through ducts. In fact, ducts can eat up 30% of energy—and that’s without the all-too-common duct leaks found in most homes. When you get a ductless system, you’ll automatically be saving energy by simply not having ducts.

However, these systems have other energy benefits. Split room systems allow you to provide different levels of comfort to each part of your home, so that each “zone” has its own cooling and heating. You can turn down the temperature in one room that you’re in without having to spend to chill the entire house. It’s a better way to cool and heat your home.

Does your home have hot and cold spots?

It’s pretty common for homes—especially older ones—to have hot and cold spots. These are places where the air conditioning or furnace doesn’t really impact as well as they should, and your comfort is negatively impacted. For example, some people note that their kitchen will be hot in the summer while the rest of their home could be mistaken for a research station in Antarctica.

The solution could be a ductless system. By adding this system in addition to your normal, duct-driven air conditioning, you can adjust the comfort in particular rooms, making your entire house comfortable.
