Zone control is a great thing: it allows you to have warmer air in your bedroom and cooler air in the kitchen – if you choose. How? With a zone control system, your home is divided into individual zones in which each has its own thermostat. But how can you have zone control in your home if you don’t have ductwork? With the installation of ductless air conditioning in your Lakeland home.
A ductless system is comprised of an outdoor unit that holds the compressor and condenser, and indoor blowers (up to 4 per outdoor unit) that deliver the cool air. The outdoor unit connects to the individual blowers by a conduit in an exterior wall. The indoor blowers are mounted in the rooms or areas that need cooling. Each indoor blower operates as a separate unit, allowing you to set different temperature per unit, give you zone control for those areas in which you have a blower.
There are other benefits a ductless air conditioning system can offer you and your home:
- Ability to both cool and heat – ductless AC’s can either be a straight air conditioner or work with a heat pump, which will both heat and cool your home.
- Energy efficiency – zone control means using only the amount of cooling you need; as such, you’ll likely reduce your cooling and with it, your energy usage. You also won’t have to worry about air loss because there’s no ductwork.
- Flexible placement – indoor blowers are about 35” long and can be mounted flush against walls, hung from ceilings or placed easily above doorways and windows. All that’s needed is an exterior wall to connect to the outdoor unit.
- Easy to extend for expansions – if you add on to your home, extending the cooling to your new space is much easier than a ducted system: as long as you aren’t overloading the outdoor unit’s capacity, all you have to do is add another indoor blower to the new space.
