With a ductless heating and cooling system, you control the air temperature in each room of your home or business, independent of one another. For example, you can set the kitchen at 65 degrees, and your bedroom at 70. How about that for room-controlled comfort?

At Jack Kiefer Heating & Air we deliver expert heating and HVAC services, including ductless systems, to our customers in Neenah and the Fox Cities.

How a Ductless System Works

If you are considering a ductless heating and cooling system for your home or business, it’s important to understand what you are getting, and how it works.  

Just as the term implies, a ductless heating and cooling system controls the air temperature without any ductwork. An outdoor unit is connected through a small hole in the wall to an indoor unit, using small cables and a refrigerant line. Typically the indoor unit is installed higher on the wall, and can be set on auto, controlled with a remote, or even a smart phone app.

You Can Create a Ductless System for One Room or Several

You have choices when installing a ductless system. When you install a mini-split system, you control the temperature in a single room. At the same time, certain models allow for a multi-split system, in which you can set different temperatures in up to 5 rooms, or zones.

Situations Made for a Ductless Heating & Cooling System

  • Do you have certain rooms in your home or business that are always either too warm, or too cold? A ductless system would be ideal for this type of situation.
  • Heating or cooling additions: Have you added a room onto your home, or converted an attic into living space? Instead of expanding your home’s original duct work, you can control the temperature in the new zone(s) with a ductless system.  
  • Downsizing within your home: Have the kids moved out, and you are using less space in your home? By adding a ductless system you can heat or cool the rooms you use most. This will ensure minimal use of the main thermostat in rooms you rarely visit.
  • Keeping everyone comfortable: Do various members of your family have different temperature preferences? With a ductless system, you can make sure that everyone has a comfortable space.
  • Providing a solution for older buildings: Is your home or business older, with no ductwork for air conditioning? You can solve the problem with a ductless system, foregoing the expense of installing new or additional ductwork.

Save Money and the Environment Using a Ductless System

Save money with a ductless system

A ductless system requires less energy because it is smaller, and the temperature-controlled air is targeted to a specific room. That said, you help the environment and save money.

According to EnergyStar a homeowner can lower electrical heating costs by 60%, and cooling costs by 30% when using a ductless system. After all, you are heating and cooling specific areas, instead of your entire home. Furthermore, you won’t be losing treated air through leaks or cracks in the ductwork.

Finally, ductless systems use the R410A refrigerant which does not deplete the ozone.
