The Number One Trick to Ductless Heating and Cooling

It’s quite obvious to most people that ductless HVAC systems are much different from their central counterparts. A furnace or a centralized heat pump just looks different, let alone operates differently on a regular basis.

However, there are some unique advantages to running a ductless mini split in Tumwater, WA that you might not be aware of. We’ll get into them down below, but they could be potential reasons for someone on the lookout for a new HVAC system to finally take the plunge into ductless technology.

So, whether you’re a curious new homeowner or an industry veteran who is soaking up all the knowledge you can, this blog post is for you. Here’s a secret trick that gives ductless HVAC owners an advantage over central heating and cooling system users.

Setting the Stage

It’s a Friday night and you’re getting ready to have some friends over. You’ve made a whole bucket of popcorn, ordered your favorite movies, and even set up a board game that you think they’ll all enjoy. You’ve got a wide smile on your face because you’re so excited about the events that are going to take place.

And then it happens. You hear a strange sound coming from the upstairs ductless mini split in your hallway and it shuts down. You start pressing buttons, hitting the control panel, and even evaluating the outdoor cabinet which is still running. But nothing seems to fix the problem at the moment. You’re going to need the focus of a trained HVAC professional.

Here’s the good news. Homeowners with a centralized heating system might need to cancel their Friday night plans, but you don’t have to!

The Secret

Ductless mini splits operate individually of one another. They’re all connected to the same condenser unit outside, but they don’t rely on each other to keep certain areas of your home comfortable. And, since each mini split is responsible for a different area, you can still maintain comfort in your house as long as you stay in the area where you’ve still got a functioning system.

So, the first step would be to call our team for expert repairs. But while you’re waiting, you can enjoy a fantastic movie or board game night with your friends in the living room, keeping the upstairs off-limits.

Your downstairs mini split will have no problems keeping the living space comfortable. And, as long as you stay out of the area upstairs (or wherever your broken mini split is), you should remain comfortable and happy in your home until the system gets fixed.

This Is a Big Difference

This is a clear advantage that mini split owners have over central heating and cooling owners. If the roles were reversed, the entire house would become uncomfortable to you and your guests. In this case, the whole house depends on one unit that could make or break your comfort.

With a ductless mini split network, you can still achieve comfort when encountering a problem with one of your mini splits. If you regularly like to host people, or you’re frustrated when you have to cancel plans or events, this system might be perfect for you.
