Is your main floor master bedroom always too cold in the winter – even though your heat is running?
Ever had a thermostat war with a member of your family? You’re in one part of the house and want a certain temperature, while someone else is another part of the home and wants it five degrees warmer?
Or do you live in a home that doesn’t have heating and cooling or ducts at all?
Quiet, Cool and Ductless.
As you likely gathered from its name, a mini-split ductless system from Daikin, is a split system, which means it has components that are located inside and outside the home. And in the case of heat pumps, they provide year-round comfort by mechanically cooling or heating the air from inside your home while transferring the heat absorbed or lost to the outside via a sealed refrigerant circuit.
Daikin’s single-room heat pumps are energy efficient and ideal for heating or cooling a small space. They are small and unobtrusive in your home. Imagine your small office or studio being toasty warm without the fuss of a furnace or the hassle of a ducted system at all. With an opening just three inches or smaller in diameter, a ductless mini-split heat pump is easy to install and maintain.
- Exceedingly energy-efficient
- Independent temperature zones in different rooms
- Quiet and modern looking
- Future flexibility making new renovations a breeze!
- No ducts? No problem.
Powered by electricity and comprised of a small outdoor condensing unit and a compact indoor evaporator unit that mounts to your preferred surface, mini-split ACs are unobtrusive and easy to install and run. The “mini” in this type of HVAC system’s name is a direct reference to the indoor unit’s diminutive size and inconspicuous appearance. The indoor and outdoor components are connected via copper refrigerant tubing and electrical wiring, requiring an opening just three inches or less in diameter.
Other uses for ductless mini-split heating and cooling technology? Here are a few ideas:
- New additions: garage, apartments, bonus rooms, sunrooms, and man caves. The main benefit of ductless is that the system will be properly sized for the space and won’t steal air from other spaces or overload your existing HVAC system.
- Serving multiple needs under one roof. Thermostat wars are a real thing, so ductless is ideal for creating independent temperature zones in different rooms.
- Dealing with a specific room that has heating problems. If you have one room that you want to use but rarely do because its never the right temperature, a ductless unit can give you back that space in your home, without having to install new ductwork.
- Adding heating to a home where the ductwork wasn’t sized for central air. If you live in an older home but do not have central air installed be sure to have your existing system assessed.
