Indoor Air Quality
- Comfort Club
Kansas City is a proud city, and also a reasonably old one. That can be difficult when determining how best to heat and cool an older home. Air conditioning systems are essential to handling our brutal summers, but an older home built before the advent of central air conditioning might not be able to handle the system of ductwork necessary to support such a system.
Thankfully, there’s another option. Ductless heating and ductless air conditioning (also known as mini splits) can be installed in homes, offices, cabins, garages, barns and more. They provide comprehensive room comfort without the need for bulky ducts. If your space could benefit from a mini split, or if you already have one and it needs a little care, contact the team at Climate Control Heating, Cooling & Plumbing right away! We are the leading hvac service provider in the Kansas City Metro for ductless systems. Give us a call to schedule services today.
How Do Ductless Systems Work?
Ductless mini splits take a basic approach of "don’t put all your eggs in one basket" when it comes to heating and cooling your Kansas City home. Centralized units heat or cool the air in one place, then move it through your home via the duct. Ductless heating and ductless air conditioning, on the other hand, use multiple smaller mini splits (or heads) placed throughout your home, each charged with heating and cooling a single part of your home. If you have a room that’s always too hot, this might be a good option to meet your cooling needs. If you have a room that’s too cold, that same system can heat to your desired comfort.
In most cases, each individual unit can be operated independently of each other, allowing you to raise and lower the temperature in each section individually. That provides a number of benefits, not all of which are immediately apparent. With ductless hvac, each room has its own air conditioner and heater with its own thermostat.
The Benefits of Ductless Mini Splits
Ductless mini splits cost more to install than central HVAC systems, but they can offset that by the savings they offer. By only running the units that heat or cool occupied parts of the home, you can drop your energy bills considerably, without skimping on the comforts that every Kansas City home needs during the heat of summer and the freezing of winter. It can also help extend the life of the hvac system, reducing wear on the units and keeping repair calls to a minimum.
In addition, mini-split systems allow different family members to set different temperatures in different parts of the home, ensuring that everyone is comfortable and no one has to compromise. When applied over time, such benefits can aid with household costs and family harmony alike!
We Handle All Aspects of Ductless Servicing
A good ductless system requires the right team to install it: one with the right combination of skill and experience to handle it properly. These systems differ from centralized hvac systems in a number of ways, and you want a technician who specializes in their function, instead of one trying to transpose the basics from centralized systems.
At Climate Control Heating, Cooling & Plumbing, we can install a new ductless mini-split system in your home, or replace a faulty unit with a new one. We can also repair any units that may demonstrate signs of trouble, as well as perform hvac services & tune ups which help reduce issues from beginning in the first place. Our NATE certified HVAC experts also provide emergency service 365-days-a-year. With service areas all over the Kansas City Metro and Johnson County, we’re there when you need us.
