City Wide Heating and Cooling can install and service ductless air conditioners and heat pumps in the Kansas City area.
Also known as mini-splits, these types of systems allow you to control the heating and cooling to each room of your house.
What Is a Ductless AC or Heat Pump?
A ductless air conditioner or heat pump is an independent air conditioner or heat pump that does not need ductwork to deliver the cold or warm air. It consists of two main components:
- Outdoor unit. This is a smaller version of an air conditioner that you would normally see on the side of your house.
- Indoor unit. This hangs on the wall in the specific room where you need the air conditioning or cooling.
This type of system works great because you can isolate what rooms you want to deliver air conditioning and heating.
So, Where Would You Install a Ductless System?
A ductless mini split can be installed anywhere you need air conditioning and heating in your Kansas City area home. With 1 outdoor unit, you can power up to 9 indoor units. This type of system can be used in a variety of ways:
- Older homes. Some old homes in the KC weren’t designed to have ductwork when they were built. So adding air conditioning to certain rooms can be a challenge. A ductless mini-split allows you to do this easier than a traditional system.
- Room additions or remodels. Adding a ductless air conditioner or heat pump can be more cost effective when adding on to your home because you save the cost of running new ductwork.
- Attics and basements. As people refurbish these spaces, ductless mini-splits can be the perfect solution.
- Garages. This type of system can add just the right amount of heating and cooling to a garage to make it a comfortable workshop all year round.
- Sunrooms. You can add heating and air conditioning and make your sunroom a 4-season space.
