Ductless AC units are zoned systems by design. They offer numerous advantages for Charlotte, NC homeowners over traditional central heating and air conditioning systems.
What Is Home Zoning?
Zoning lets you set temperatures throughout your home to precisely match your preferences. A central HVAC zoning control system consists of dampers installed in ductwork that direct heated or cooled air to each zone as needed. Ductless systems deliver treated air directly from the outdoor compressor unit to the indoor air handlers in each room.
How Does Ductless Home Zoning Work?
Copper refrigerant lines connect the outdoor unit to the indoor air handlers. A small incision is made in the wall for these lines. Each indoor unit has an independent thermostat that controls temperatures in the zone that the unit governs.
