Homeowners may need a ductless mini-split in Fullerton, CA for one of several reasons. Maybe they added a room to their home, and their current ducted HVAC system can’t reach it. Perhaps they have no ducted heating or cooling in the first place, but they only require that optimal comfort be provided to three or four rooms, in which case they would purchase not just one mini-split heat pump but multiple air handlers. Our crew at Alps Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. is here to help.
Whatever their reasons for the purchase, very few homeowners are disappointed by these products. Let’s first explain how they work. Mini-splits are heat pumps without the ductwork. You get the same three major components: air handler, compressor, and refrigerant line. The air handler, of course, is much more compact and doesn’t go in the attic or basement; it’s something you mount on your wall. However, the procedure is the same. You get cool air in summer as the system takes heat out of your home, and you’re warmed in winter when it transfers cool air from inside to the outdoors.
Fullerton Ductless Mini-Split Systems
A ductless mini-split is easy to install, so Fullerton residents won’t need to take much time out of their schedule to have this done. There’s a lot to think about, such as where to mount the air handler and where to place the compressor, but the good news is that air handlers have a sleek, compact design, and compressors can be located as far as 50 feet away from the air handlers. You can connect up to eight air handlers to a single compressor.
There are numerous benefits, including:
- Greater energy efficiency
- Zoning controls
- The ability to direct airflow
- A long lifespan (up to 30 years)
If you own a ducted system, you know that leaks or poorly sealed ducts cause the air to seep out. Mini-splits prevent this energy waste, which can translate to significant savings. You also save money from the fact that each air handler comes with its own thermostat. Occupants can adjust the temperature of their room to their own liking. Simply turn off a system when that room becomes unoccupied.
