Is Ductless Heating Possible for My Home?

Tuesday, January 17th, 2017

Our mission is to help local homeowners stay comfortable through all seasons. But that isn’t always easy if your home isn’t set up for comfort. Some local homes were designed without any ductwork, which means no means of ventilation through which to bring warm or cool air.

The good news is that there is a way for nearly any home to get heat throughout, without the hassle of hooking up portable or temporary heaters and without the need for major renovations: ductless heating and cooling.

Ductless Mini Split Installation: The Process

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2016

Are you ready to finally have the whole-home cooling and heating you’ve always wanted for your home? If you are like many people in the area without a whole-house ventilation system, you’ve probably had to relay a lot on temporary heating and cooling solutions.

In the summer, window AC units are noisy and largely inefficient in hot weather. In the winter, you might rely on portable heaters that you have to move every time you change seats, and electric heating is typically extremely inefficient.

Is a Ductless Mini Split the Best Choice for Your Home?

Monday, October 3rd, 2016

A ductless mini split system offers a unique solution to a common problem: a home without a proper ventilation system. When all or part of the home is missing the ducts and air vents needed to provide central air and heat, local technicians can help.

A ductless mini split has an outdoor compressor/condenser unit, just like the standard air conditioner (or, more accurately, a heat pump). Individual blower units are mounted on the walls of different rooms or zones throughout the home to move air directly into the space. So is this the right choice for you? You decide!

Common Ductless Heating System Repairs

Thursday, January 23rd, 2014

A ductless heating system is just what it sounds like: a system that relies on separate indoor air handler units placed strategically throughout your house connected to an outdoor unit instead of a single indoor unit that sends warm air everywhere via a system of ducts. Ductless heating offers many advantages, such as the ability to tailor the temperature for different parts of the house and even turn the heat off in rooms you aren’t using. Ductless heat pumps combine heating and air conditioning functions into a single system. That works very well for heating in Atlanta, since the system is at its most effective when temperatures stay above 40 degrees or so. Unfortunately, it can run into problems just like any other heating system, and when it does, you need a qualified repair service to handle it.

Here are some common ductless heating system repairs.

  • Refrigerant leaks. Ductless  heat pumps use refrigerant to absorb heat from the outside air and transfer it into your home. When the refrigerant leaks out, your heat pump don’t be able to heat effectively, and frost can form on the coils. You can’t just scrape off the ice: the leak needs to be sealed and refrigerant levels recharged to address the issue.
  • Clogged lines. Clogged drain lines and a misaligned drain pan can both create condensate overflow in your heating unit. The overflow can end up damaging internal components if it’s not addressed.
  • Motor issues. Ductless heating systems have fans to blow warm air into your home. When the fan motor runs into trouble – either because of an electrical overload or some kind of mechanical problem – the fan won’t blow and your air won’t get heated.
