Ductless Systems - Air Conditioning and Heating Unitsare the breakthrough in pure comfort. Our ENERGY STAR Systems incorporate eco-comfort technology, dual and triple-allergen filtration, and whisper-quiet operation. Space-saving design means easy and unobtrusive installation. Griffin Air LLC is #1 at installing ductless hvac systems in the Middle Peninsula and Northern Neck areas!
1. They Offer Highly Flexible Solutions
Traditional heat pumps and central air conditioning systems force cooled and heated air through ducts, ductless systems deliver air directly into different zones. Furthermore, these solutions include a small outdoor unit and one or more indoor units that require nothing more than mounting capabilities and access to electricity.
Sometimes referred to as split systems, multi-split systems, or split-ductless systems, ductless cooling and heating offers home and business owners a cost-effective way to replace inefficient window units, space heaters and electric baseboard heaters. They can be installed in home additions, new construction, condominiums and apartments, or to improve temperature control in specific rooms. Ductless systems can even be fit for buildings that currently use ducted forced-air systems.
2. They Save You Money
One of the biggest reasons why homeowners switch to ductless cooling and heating is overall cost savings. In recent years, utility costs across the country have skyrocketed! When a home’s temperature depends upon an inefficient system, monthly bills can quickly climb out of control. Ductless systems operate on less power. Multi-zone split systems also allow homeowners to create “zones” in their home, which means they no longer have to cool or heat rooms that aren’t occupied.
3. They Improve Indoor Air Quality – Happy Breathing!
Often times, the quality of indoor air can actually be lower than the quality of outdoor air. A traditional HVAC system has air ducts that have dust and allergens left behind even after cleaning. In contrast, ductless systems offer multi-stage filtration that can drastically reduce dust, bacteria, pollen, allergens and other particulates in the air.
4. They Are Quick and Easy to Install
Installing a traditional, ducted system can take several weeks and disrupts daily activities in the home. Ductless systems are far less invasive to install and can be up and running in as little as one day.
Multi-split systems run on small pipes that require a mere three-inch hole. That means homeowners don’t have to worry about rebuilding walls or ceilings around ductwork. This means there is no loss of precious square footage.
5. Ductless Cooling Lowers Your Carbon Footprint
The small size of a ductless cooling system and its zoning capabilities allows for greater energy efficiency. Ductless cooling and heating systems follow ENERGY STAR guidelines. As a result, they are far more energy efficient than the minimum standards set forth by the U.S. federal government. Therefore, improved efficiency saves money, of course, but it also helps reduce your total carbon output.
Additionally, ductless systems take advantage of advances in chemistry to reduce effects on the environment. This means the system will have less impact on the environment throughout its lifecycle.
Ductless cooling and heating systems are energy efficient, environmentally friendly and completely customizable. They offer homeowners the ability to cool and heat specific zones of their home to the exact temperature they desire, providing consistent and exceptional year-round comfort.
