Cincinnati Ductless HVAC Repair and Installation

FREE Service Calls with Any HVAC Repair Service

Ductless systems are a great solution for homes that don’t have a central air conditioning/heating system, or for parts of a home that were added or converted to living space after the HVAC system was installed. The ductless system connects an indoor unit with an outdoor unit to cool or heat specific areas or zones of a home without adding ductwork. You get efficient heating and cooling at a lower operational cost.

A ductless air conditioner or ductless heat pump usually includes a compressor located outside and a wall-mounted indoor unit. They are usually used in areas of the home where a window AC unit or baseboard heating would be considered – for example in a new addition to a house. The ductless wall-mounted unit requires a very small hole to be drilled, but it is less vulnerable to security issues and air leakage than a window unit. They also make less noise and aren’t as noticeable.

The heating and cooling experts at Thomas & Galbraith can help you go ductless in your Cincinnati area home, or perform service on an existing ductless system. Call now or schedule your service online today!

Ideal Situation for Ductless Systems

Ductless systems have a clear advantage in certain situations and may be the best choice for your home:

  • For Heating and Cooling New Additions to Your Home
  • For Meeting the Needs of Multiple People in the Same Home Who Like Different Temperatures
  • Making a Room With Specific Heating or Cooling Problems More Comfortable
  • Providing Air Conditioning to a House With No Existing Ductwork

The Benefits of Ductless Systems

Keep everyone in your home happy: With a ductless system you can set a different temperature for each room. You won’t have to crank up the heat or AC to keep that one room with bad circulation in your home comfortable. You can keep parts of the house warmer or cooler depending on the preferences of your family members.

Enjoy a quieter home: The major parts of ductless units are on the outside of the home, which means less noise inside the house while your system is running. Compared to other options that can be noisy, you may not even realize your ductless unit is on except for the enjoyment you are getting from your conditioned air.

Reduce your carbon footprint: Some rooms may not require as much effort to heat or cool as others in your home. Some parts of your home may not need to be cooled or heated during the day or night. With a ductless system, you can choose to only heat or cool select areas of your home. You can also adjust the amount of heating or cooling for each area or room. Doing this will greatly decrease the amount of energy your home uses throughout the day, which saves you money and reduces your impact on the environment.

The Disadvantages of Ductless Systems

Aesthetics: Ductless units aren’t necessarily design-friendly and you may not like how they look installed on the outside of your home. Ductless units come in standard white or beige and can’t be covered up.

Upfront Costs: Your potential usage, local electricity rates, and climate, may make installing a ductless system too costly or leave you with a long payback period, even with less energy usage. A single ductless unit costs several times more than a comparable window unit or baseboard heating unit. Replacing your whole central heating/cooling system with a complete ductless system may be two to three times the cost of choosing another ducted unit.

Maintenance: Ductless fans can’t handle accumulating debris so your ductless systems will require regular maintenance to work properly. You’ll need to clean each unit’s filter monthly (more frequently if you smoke or have pets). Ignoring maintenance can lead to expensive repairs and can shorten the life of your system.
