Are you thinking about adding a new room to your Denver, North Carolina, home? Are you turning your garage into an office space? Or perhaps your family members want more control over their comfort in their individual rooms. Whatever the case, you can likely benefit from a ductless HVAC system. Here are the differences between a single-zoned and a multi-zoned ductless HVAC system, helping you choose the right unit for your home’s comfort needs.

A Single-Zoned Ductless HVAC System

Also called a mini-split, a single-zoned ductless HVAC system lets you control the temperature of a small space in your home or office. As opposed to a central HVAC system, you don’t need to connect the indoor and outdoor units with a network of ducts. Instead, a service technician connects the two units by running a strand of cables and a refrigerant line through a small hole in the wall.

  • Save money on energy costs by delivering conditioned air directly into your living space
  • Avoid the need to invest in duct cleaning services to prevent poor indoor air quality
  • Take advantage of tax credits and utility rebates for additional savings

A Multi-Zoned Ductless HVAC System

A multi-zoned ductless HVAC system also includes an indoor and outdoor unit, connecting much like a single-zoned ductless HVAC system. The difference: you can connect the outdoor unit to several indoor units installed around your home. This gives you the ability to create and control several temperature zones in your home. A Variable Refrigerant Flow system is a type of ductless unit.

  • Cool one zone in your home while heating another at the same time
  • Keep the family happy by allowing each member to customize their comfort
  • Lower your carbon footprint by using R410A refrigerant instead of R-22 refrigerant
