Brace yourselves, summer is coming.
And if you live in an older home here in the Hudson Valley, or one that is heated with a boiler, that may mean your home is about to get rather hot and uncomfortable. Central air conditioning needs ductwork, and if your home doesn’t have it, adding it can make getting central A/C in your home an incredibly expensive endeavor.
You may believe that the only other option for keeping your home cool is using those bulky, old window air conditioning units. But they are inefficient, unattractive, a hassle because they need to be installed and uninstalled each year, a security risk, block light, bring in bugs, dirt, pollen, and dust, and they may damage your window frames over time.
But there is an alternative that gives you better, more energy-efficient cooling than window units without the expense of installing central air conditioning. Ductless mini-splits from Depew Energy are a great solution!
Ductless mini-splits have only two major components. The outdoor compressor unit and the indoor air handler—which is also called the evaporator. These are connected via a conduit. That conduit contains tubing and the condensate drain, power and communications lines.
The compressor does what its name says it does and compresses refrigerant. From there, the refrigerant is sent to the condenser, where it gives up its heat. That heat is dispersed out of the unit to the outdoors. The refrigerant, which is now a liquid, is sent through the conduit to the evaporator to the air handler. Once in the evaporator, the refrigerant absorbs heat from the warm indoor air that is blown over the evaporator coils.
Once cooled, the air is sent out of the air handler and back into the designated rooms of your home.
Ductless air conditioning can be installed by our trained, experienced service technicians in less than a day at a fraction of the cost of central air conditioning.
Units can be installed almost anywhere in your home and can be customized to meet your cooling needs. You can vary the size of the air handler depending on the space you are cooling. And, because each ductless A/C unit operates independently, you can have efficient, zoned cooling in your home at a fraction of the energy needed by the traditional window units.
