My home is severely old, legitimately large and has been remodeled many times.
The layout has been reconfigured with walls getting removed and a screened in porch getting walled in. The setup of the duct system hasn’t changed, then because of this, certain areas of the home lack sufficient vents to maintain a comfortable temperature. There is one central control device for the entire house. If I raise the setting to accommodate the cold kitchen or overheated study rooms, the rest of the home gets way too hot or cold. This also forces the gas furnace and cooling system to labor extra hard and use up a lot of energy. I’ve looked into zone control but the heating and cooling system is simply too old. The cost of replacing everything is downright astronomical. I needed a way to target temperature control to certain rooms. After some research, I decided to install a ductless multi-chop system. This style of heat pump incorporates into the lake house separate from a large, messy and invasive upgrade process. All it needs is numerous-inch holes in an exterior wall for the conduit that attachs the indoor air handlers with the outdoor compressor. An individual air handler mounts on the wall of the many rooms and provides both heating and cooling, however despite the compact size of the equipment, ductless systems are exceptionally powerful. The system is also attractively clean, quiet and energy efficient. I’m now able to adjust temperature through a cordless remote and each room is perfectly comfortable. The ductless air handlers even combat excess humidity in the Summer and filter contaminants out of the air.
