Ductless Air Conditioning

Save Money With Single- or Multi-Zone Ductless Air Conditioning

June 30, 2022

Homeowners in Portsmouth, VA, have plenty of options when looking for ways to cool and heat their indoor living spaces. One of the most popular in recent years has been ductless air conditioning and heating. That’s because these HVAC systems are versatile, energy-efficient and offer many other benefits when installed correctly.

Single-Zone Ductless

Ductless AC systems operate much like central air conditioners. They use refrigerant to extract heat from your indoor air and expel it outside. And while their configuration resembles heat pumps, they don’t require ductwork to distribute conditioned air. Instead, ductless AC systems deliver it directly into the spaces where you install them. As a result, you avoid the pitfalls of having dirty or damaged ductwork.

A single-zone ductless mini-split is ideal for new home additions, studio apartments, small offices and converted garages. The indoor air handler connects to the outdoor compressor via a small hole in the wall. With a single-zone ductless installation, you’ll avoid paying to extend your central HVAC system’s ductwork, which is a costly expense.

Multi-Zone Ductless

A multi-zone ductless installation involves connecting several indoor air handlers to one outdoor compressor. It allows you to ditch the ducts while splitting your house into multiple climate control zones. For example, you can have an indoor air handler in the living room area, in each bedroom and the basement. Everyone in your home will enjoy their preferred temperature all the time. Here’s how you’ll save money with a multi-zone ductless installation:

  • Stop losing conditioned air via leaky ductwork.
  • Avoid wasting energy and money heating and cooling empty areas of your home.
  • Stop paying to clean and repair dirty and damaged ductwork.

Ductless Air Conditioning Installation

Installing a single-zone ductless mini-split takes a few hours. A multi-zone ductless system installation only takes a little longer.
