Bringing an older home up to date with a new heating and cooling system can be a daunting task. But now more than ever there is great value in updating your home’s heating and cooling system. According to the Department of Energy, if your home is 50 years or older, chances are you’re paying at least 25% more in energy costs than a comparably sized new home.
THE PERFECT RETROFIT
FOR YOUR HOME
Just a few decades ago, it seemed that the only option to retrofit an older home with HVAC was to install a ducted forced air system. However, retrofitting a forced-air system into an older home is a huge job that requires running new ductwork, cutting large holes into walls and floors, and often sacrificing precious closet and storage space to make space for the new ducts that cannot be run through plaster walls.
Introducting ductless mini-split systems! Rather than registers to force air through the home to heat and cool, ductless systems use smaller indoor units that have the flexibility to be installed on the wall, floor, or, in some instances, concealed in the ceiling. Ductless systems give you the ability to provide comfort with minimal intrusion on the space in your home.
Depending on the overall design, ductless systems can run up to eight individual zones from a single condensing unit. Each zone can be turned on and off when in use and set at their own temperature, maximizing comfort and efficiency. Fujitsu ductless mini-split systems are as much as 2.35 times as efficient as the government standard. With that extreme efficiency comes monthly savings on your electricity bill.
