Think of a ductless system as cutting out the middle man, which in this case are your air ducts.
Also known as a mini-split, a ductless heat pump or air conditioner (AC) is a wall-mounted air handler that connects with an outside compressor. You can install a mini-split with little fuss practically anywhere in your Idaho home or business. And, as you can probably guess, they do not require ducts!
Unlike a conventional heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system, a ductless system allows for much more flexibility in terms of your heating and cooling needs. You can add one air handler for your entire Meridian home, or several units in different rooms to create a zone control system.
For over 50 years, our team at Western Heating & Air Conditioning has been serving homes and businesses in Boise, Meridian, Eagle, and the entire Treasure Valley. We are a third-generation family-owned company with deeps roots in the community and a strong commitment to excellence.
Our A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau and five-star Google reviews tells you that our clients always come first. Building professional relationships is the key to our success.
Ductless systems are a great choice when considering a new addition to your home, since extending the ductwork in your HVAC system adds a lot of cost to the project. Unlike a window AC unit, a ductless system is quieter and can also heat your home.
In other words, you get to cut out the middle man!
These systems are extremely energy efficient, as most homes experience an average of 20 to 40 percent leakage in their air ducts over time because of tears and loose connections. Clogged air ducts can also circulate pollutants into the air, compromising your indoor air quality (IAQ) and health. A mini-split solves that issue.
Here are a few examples where you can take advantage of a ductless system in your Boise home:
- New Additions: From dormers to sunrooms, ductless systems offer a reliable heating and cooling solution when you build a new addition to your Meridian home and do not want to extend your ductwork.
- Downsizing: Installing a mini-split in the rooms you use the most often allows you to lower the temperature in the rest of your Meridian home. Are you an empty-nester that suddenly has too much living space? This could be the perfect answer.
- Zoning Your Home: If you live in a home with multiple floors or an intricate floor plan, installing mini-splits in certain rooms can achieve the ultimate comfort throughout your home. Mini-spits are easier to install and maintain over conventional zone control systems since they do not involve your ductwork.
- Temperature Issues: Do you have hot and cold spots throughout your home? Maybe your kitchen tends to heat up, or you have a large living room that never quite feels warm enough. Adding a mini-split to these rooms can quickly resolve all the temperature issues in your Treasure Valley home.
Ductless System Installation
Our installation experts at Western Heating & Air Conditioning will work alongside you in choosing the right mini-split system that fits your needs in terms of capacity and size. We are a licensed, insured, and bonded company, giving you peace of mind that you are working with a trusted professional.
Installing your mini-split is just a matter of connecting each indoor wall unit to an outdoor compressor via a power cord. Typically, it involves little more than drilling a small hole in the wall and mounting the indoor unit in an accessible area.
Mini-splits offer more security over a window unit and are less visible. Unlike a conventional forced-air system, ductless systems do not stir up dust or other airborne particles in your Treasure Valley home. They are a great heating and cooling solution for both residential and commercial applications.
