Are you one of the many homeowners considering more efficient and effective ways to heat or cool your home this year? Then you’d do well to consider the installation of a ductless system! Rather than functioning via a network of ducts connected to an indoor air handler and outdoor evaporator unit, ductless systems use one small outdoor unit connected to up to 4 indoor air handlers—but these air handlers are very small and can be mounted up on the wall, out of anybody’s way.
Each air handler is connected to the outdoor unit via a conduit that runs behind the drywall thanks to a small hold drilled at the top of the wall. These conduits contain refrigerant, the power cord, and the condensate line.
Ductless systems are very unique HVAC systems, and due to this have very unique needs. Not to worry though, this doesn’t necessarily mean that there are disadvantages to going ductless—it just means that if you’re going to have one of these systems installed; the job should be done by a pro.
