  • Who Can Benefit from a Ductless Air Conditioning System?

    When ventilation is uneven throughout the entire household—usually as a result of debris in the ventilation system or recent renovations—some rooms may be warmer than others. Window air conditioning units can be noisy, unsightly, and may even allow outdoor dust and allergens into the room, but ductless units can be installed without opening the up the walls or ceiling. A split ductless air conditioning system may be right for you if you need:

    Low-Profile Installation

    Unlike window units, ductless air conditioners are permanent installations that consist of an outdoor condenser and compressor and an indoor air handler to achieve the same cooling efficiency as a central unit for a limited amount of space. These slim, low-profile units sit on the wall as a permanent fixture, which means that you won’t have to alter your living space to achieve even cooling throughout the household. You also get to keep your window for whenever you want to air the room out!

    Quiet Zone Cooling

    Window-mounted air conditioning units tend to make a significant amount of noise every time they activate, but split ductless air systems are much quieter. With several systems placed in parallel, different rooms can be cooled without disturbing your family or neighbors. And if one remains unused for a length of time, you can simply shut off the unit and enjoy the reduced energy costs.

    Cooling Efficiency

    Split ductless air conditioning systems benefit some households more than others. Several units can be joined in parallel to provide cooling for several rooms, and due to their size and low energy usage they may still prove more economical in the long-term than using a window or a portable unit. Alternatively, using several units to cool too many rooms may prove prohibitively costly and inefficient.

    Ductless air conditioning systems are a simple way to cool a home without invasive ductwork installations in the walls or ceilings.

  • Heat Loss Sources in Your Home

    The  heat in your home  can be escaping through many areas in your house. When measuring heat loss, air changes make up a large part of the source.

    Air changes account for a majority of the heat loss in a home, followed closely by windows and wall insulation. Air change is defined as the volume of air in an enclosure that is being replaced by new air. This air change can occur through many sources like leaky HVAC duct work. Reference the diagram above from  The Living Home  for a more detailed breakdown of heat loss in your home!

  • Selecting the Right Air Filter for Your HVAC System

    You have many options when it comes to choosing air filters for your HVAC system, and if you or a family member suffers from allergies or asthma, this decision requires careful consideration. Some air filters are more efficient than others and better at capturing airborne particles that can cause respiratory irritation.

    This video explains the differences between several kinds of filters. Pleated air filters are excellent choices, because their increased surface areas and tightly woven fibers catch dust and allergens.

    Changing your air filters on a regular basis is one of the best ways to keep your HVAC system in good condition. Maintain your indoor air quality and keep your furnace or air conditioner running efficiently with help from Estes Heating & Air Conditioning of Atlanta.
