If you live in an older home, a home with a radiant heating system, or have added on to your home, you might be concerned that you don’t have the ductwork needed to support an air conditioning system. While it’s true that a central AC system requires ductwork in order to effectively cool your home, you might be surprised to learn that nowadays, you have other options. Ductless and high velocity air conditioning is made to cool your home without the need for extensive, large ductwork. You’ll be able to enjoy a cooler indoor climate with minimal construction and mess.
What are ductless air conditioning systems?
Ductless air conditioning systems are high efficiency cooling and heating systems that help keep spaces with no ductwork as comfortable as those with. Ductless air conditioning systems are generally used in a single space, but there are multi-unit options available as well. Ductless air conditioning can be used not only in spaces that have no ductwork, but they are also a great option for balancing out hot and cold spots in your home or office, increasing the energy efficiency in surrounding spaces, or providing precise temperature control in areas where climate control is essential.
Ductless air conditioning systems mount directly to the wall or ceiling and blend well with virtually any décor. Window air conditioning units can be unattractive and block your view – with ductless air conditioning, which are non-obtrusive and quiet, the only thing you’ll likely notice is the improved comfort level in the room. What’s more, T.F. O’Brien provides expert installation, so we can install the unit in your Long Island home or business in just a few hours, with no patching, painting or additional ductwork required.
What is high velocity AC?
If you live in an older, multi-story home that lacks ductwork, and are in need of improved home cooling, then why not think about a high velocity air conditioner? This is the ideal system for adding air conditioning to homes where larger ductwork may be impossible or impractical. High velocity air conditioning helps to ensure a dehumidified, cooler environment, and provide complete and thorough air circulation.
High velocity air conditioning systems use a type of indoor equipment known as an air handler, outdoor equipment, a line set of pipes that connect the indoor and outdoor units, and small-diameter ductwork which transfers the cooled air throughout your home. A standard thermostat controls the system, which discharges the cooled air at targeted locations throughout your home.
