Ductless Air Conditioner Expertise in Lafayette, CO
At Save Home Heat Company, we’re been helping homeowners in Lafayette, CO raise the bar of comfort and efficiency in their homes for over four decades. One of the many ways we accomplish this is with ductless air conditioners. Ductless air conditioners, also known as ductless mini-split air conditioners, are extraordinarily efficient and quiet systems that can quietly and comfortably cool virtually any room or area of your home, without the use of ductwork. The indoor part of these systems is an indoor unit located on an interior wall to distribute the cooled air.
Powering the cooling is a small condensing unit installed outside the home, working in tandem with the inside blower unit to provide cooling. The ductless mini-split air conditioner can be easily controlled from a hand-held remote control thermostat, which can be mounted on the wall, if you prefer. As an added bonus, some ductless models can perform heating as well as cooling! Among the many quality products that our team at Save Home Heat Company installs, ductless systems routinely yield the highest levels of customer satisfaction.
Ductless Air Conditioning System Common Applications
- In a master bedroom that’s too warm
- In an office or den that’s uncomfortable due to copiers, computers and other equipment
- In an area that receives excessive sun exposure
- In homes with hot water heat that can’t use a central AC system
- In homes with central air conditioning where certain rooms aren’t cooled effectively
- When you want to cool certain rooms, but not the whole house
- When central air conditioning costs more to operate than you like
- When your basement gets too cold because of the central AC
As evidenced above, it’s easy to see that ductless air conditioners are able to meet many different residential cooling needs. Whether you’re establishing custom, personalized comfort zones or adding cooling to a troublesome area, ductless air conditioners are a truly versatile solution.
Benefits of Ductless Mini-Split Air Conditioners in Lafayette
It’s more than just the versatility of areas a ductless air conditioner can be utilized that make them so attractive. They also provide a variety of benefits that other types of cooling systems simply can’t! These benefits include:
- They work very quickly
- They’re extremely reliable
- They’re remarkably quiet
- Indoor unit is unobtrusive and doesn’t require a huge hole in the wall or a window
- Outdoor unit is much smaller & quieter than central system equipment
- They’re highly efficient and cost little to operate
- Efficiency ratings up to 30+ SEER!
- INVERTER-driven compressor technology uses only the energy needed to do the job
- They ALWAYS solve their cooling problem!
Create Zones Using One Outdoor Unit
An added perk to the benefits of zoning that mini-split air conditioners afford is that in many cases, you only need one outdoor unit to power multiple indoor blower units. Certain outdoor condenser models, in multi-zone systems, can power a number of indoor blowers, making for a highly compact outdoor footprint, along with extremely quiet outdoor sound levels.
A Variety of Indoor Units Available
In addition to the popular wall-mounted indoor units available, there are other varieties available to meet a range of style and installation needs. Our team can help you choose between options like ceiling-cassette units, floor-mounted models, and duct-able blower units that can be placed out of view.
Ductless Mini-Splits for Cooling and Heating
Some specific models of mini-splits can both cool your home in the summer and heat it during the winter. These models of ductless mini-splits are excellent options to independently heat and cool areas of your home where your primary system doesn’t quite do the job, or where you simply desire year-round, independent comfort control. Keep your home office cool during the summers, the basement warm during the winter, or any other areas of your home comfortable that are normally a bit too hot or cold. You won’t need to heat up or cool down your entire home with ductless mini-splits serving your most frequently used areas, either, making this zoning approach a highly efficient option all year-round. For optimal winter operation, certain models are available that can provide significant heat output even when outdoor temperatures are well below zero degrees F.
Brands We Carry
Whole-Home Comfort with Ductless Systems
With the continuing trend towards wind and renewable energy sources for the Denver-Boulder area, many Lafayette homeowners are joining the shift away from burning fossil fuels and converting old gas and electric heating systems over to a zoned heating and cooling system using ductless mini-splits. If you have an older and less efficient system that is due for an upgrade, this is an attractive, environmentally friendly consideration for whole-home heating and cooling.
