How to Cool Older Homes

Written by: Metro Air

Older homes are usually full of history and charm. Unfortunately, they often don’t have the ductwork system that modern homes are accustomed to, which means air conditioning could be non-existent. If your older home was built 50+ years ago, you can still enjoy the benefit of quality air conditioning in your home. Here’s how.

Ductless heating and cooling systems are one of the best inventions in the last few decades and they have become one of the best and most popular ways to provide energy efficient cooling to your home. And better yet: they can also provide heating during the cold winter months – all in one system! These units do not require ductwork but instead, utilize an exterior heat pump that is connected to interior head units that distribute the air-conditioned air or heat to the home. One outside unit can support several interior air handling units. That means your home will stay evenly cooled all summer long. You decide what temperature is the most comfortable and with a touch of a button, you have a cool, comfortable home!

Ductless systems can be installed high on the wall, in the ceiling or near the floor. We will talk to you about which options are best! Our mini-split ductless systems include:

  • Mitsubishi Ductless Air Conditioners
  • Mr. Slim Ductless Systems
  • Bryant Evolution Series Ductless Systems
  • Bryant Preferred Series Ductless Systems

We love the flexibility and energy savings that ductless mini splits provide. Want to know more about the details of these systems? We are happy to talk to you about this option for your home! Warm weather is on its way and it is important to think about how you will cool your home this year. Spring is one of the most popular times to get a new air conditioning system installed!  We will come take a look at the unique layout and design of your older home so we can determine which options are best for you and your budget.

Best Places for a Ductless System

Written by: Metro Air

Do you dream about heating and cooling your home or office space with just one machine? The ductless system could be the answer to your dreams! We love this invention and install many of these systems each year for customers in all sorts of different buildings. Here are some of the best places for installing a ductless system.

Homes with electric heat:
Does your home have electric baseboard heating or wall heaters that look like they could catch fire at any minute? A new ductless mini-split heating and cooling system can replace these heating sources and replace them with energy efficient heating. Ductless mini-splits are often two to four times more efficient at heating than electric baseboards.

Garages or workshops:
Do you have a garage or workspace that you spend a lot of time in? No need to suffer through the heat of summer out there or the cold of winter. A ductless unit uses a main outdoor unit with several heads placed strategically throughout your home, including your garage or workshop space!

Accessory Dwelling Units:
The tiny home or accessory dwelling unit (ADU) trend is still very popular due to their affordability. Ductless systems are generally the “go-to” heating and cooling solutions for these types of living spaces because of their small size and incredible efficiency.

Remodeled homes:
Are you planning to add a new room to your home or office space or are you remodeling it completely? The perfect time to replace your heating and cooling system is during a remodel. They are installed by our expert technicians in one or two days, so it won’t hold up anything else on the remodeling schedule. Contact us to talk about how a new system could fit into your home’s new look and layout.

Ductless systems offer perfectly controlled temperatures year-round and assist in great indoor air quality. That means you’ll have clean, energy efficient heat in the winter and cool air conditioning in the summer. Ready to see if your home or commercial building could benefit from a ductless unit? We have options that will fit your space size and most importantly, your budget! We are a proud carrier of Bryant systems & we are looking forward to having you contact us today to see what ductless can do for you.
