Ductless HVAC Systems in Miami, FL
Ductless HVAC systems are popular home comfort systems in many parts of the U.S., but there are some homeowners who know little or nothing about these high-efficiency units. A ductless heat pump provides heating and cooling from a single system. It is composed of an outdoor compressor unit, up to four indoor blower units around the house, a refrigerant line to connect them all, and thermostats in the various rooms or zones.
This type of system is perfect for someone without any air ducts or with inefficient dilapidated ducts that would take a long time to fix. And you can get professional ductless heat pump installation, replacement, repair, or maintenance in Miami, FL from the friendly team at Altman Air, Inc..
Why Choose a Ductless Mini Split
If you’re a homeowner who cools every room of the home with noisy window units, it’s time to reconsider your approach. This is an inefficient way to cool a home. Most window units have trouble cooling down a room completely, and they don’t even have a long lifespan.
You may not have any ducts in your home, but that doesn’t mean you cannot benefit from central air and heat. A ductless air conditioning and heating system has an outdoor unit (that looks just like a standard AC’s outdoor unit) that connects to several indoor blower units mounted on the wall. This means:
- No major renovations to add in ductwork
- Whole–home heating and cooling
- Separate thermostats in separate areas for built–in zone control
- The high efficiency of a standard heat pump without the possibility of air leaks through the ducts
Signs a Ductless Unit Needs Service
Scheduling ductless heating and air services before the system fails can make things a lot easier on you. The sooner you schedule service for your air conditioner and heater, the less it’s likely to cost, and the less trouble you have to deal with later on. Besides, a broken system uses a lot of energy. A well–maintained system may last many years without problems, but there are some things to look out for:
- Uneven cooling or heating when the thermostats throughout the home are set to the same temperature
- Temperatures that don’t seem to match the thermostat settings
- Low airflow from one or more blowers
- Inconsistent temperatures
- Aesthetic and structural issues with the mounting of the indoor blower units
Maintaining Your Ductless System
No matter how well your ductless mini split seems to perform, there could be hidden problems within the system you cannot see. That’s why we recommend that Miami, FL residents schedule maintenance services with our team once a year. You get a standard tune–up and inspection that may save money on monthly energy bills and reduce the chances of problems within the indoor or outdoor units.
In addition, you should change your air filters regularly (or better yet, purchase a reusable filter and clean it). Need help with this process?
