Get Ductless Heating for an Older Home

Is the HVAC system in your Boynton Beach, Florida home a few decades old? You might know it needs to be upgraded, whether for comfort reasons or energy savings, but changing the HVAC system can be complicated. Fortunately, ductless systems provide a happy medium so you don’t have to worry about all that goes with installing a new air conditioner or contending with the shortcomings of the original air conditioning system.

Installing Central Air Conditioning

The trouble with upgrading older homes with a new HVAC system is that the existing ductwork might not be able to match the capacity of modern HVAC equipment. When you purchase a new furnace or air conditioner, your HVAC technician will need to calculate the heating and cooling load to determine the size and type of system that will work best for your home.

Another important part of the technician’s job will be to assess the layout of the ductwork. Your technician will determine the configuration and size of the ductwork needed based on the results of the heating and cooling load calculations. It is likely that an older home will need an upgrade of the ductwork, which could require demolishing and rebuilding sections of the home. Installation will, therefore, be more complicated and expensive.

Room-Targeted Heating

Why endure the expense and inconvenience of restructuring your home just to accommodate a heating and cooling system? One of the best features of ductless systems are that they can deliver heating and cooling to the rooms you specify, like bedrooms, living spaces, or add-ons. Using air conditioning only where needed can help you to save energy.

Improved Year-Round Comfort

While a ductless heat pump can help warm up troublesome rooms in the winter, it can also reverse the flow and pump hot air out of your home during the summer. All this is done from a small, quiet unit kept outside your home. Compared with installing a brand new furnace or air conditioner for your central air system, ductless systems are cheaper. They also provide more efficient heating and cooling, and can supplement the existing HVAC system rather than replace it.
