New AC Installation? Consider Single- or Multi-Zone Ductless Cooling

Have you considered installing a single- or multi-zone ductless cooling system? If you’re upgrading your air conditioning or remodeling your Merritt Island, FL, home, you might find that a ductless system is a perfect fit. Read on to learn the differences between the two types of ductless systems and their benefits.

Single-Zone Mini-Split Ductless Cooling System

Firstly, a single-zone cooling system consists of one condenser that sits outside and one indoor air handler. Single-zone systems work great in small rooms like new home addition or redesigned spaces like a garage when installing new ductwork is too expensive or placing ductwork within the design isn’t feasible.

Multi-zone Ductless Cooling Systems

A multi-zone ductless cooling system has more indoor air handlers controlled by a single condenser. One condenser can supply power to as many as eight indoor handlers. Do you have a two-story house? You can install a multi-zone ductless HVAC system to split your home into several climate control zones that feature their own thermostat.

Benefits of Ductless Cooling

Whether you choose a single- or multi-zone system, each boast the following benefits:

  • Minimal energy usage.
  • Better performance.
  • Eco-friendly.
  • Less maintenance.
  • Fewer repairs.
  • Reduced carbon footprint.
  • Cheaper cooling.
  • No need to pay for duct services.

Which Ductless Setup is Better?

It boils down to your preferences, your budget and your cooling needs. Is price driving your decision? If so, it costs less to install a single-zone system because there’s less equipment to install. Yet, if you plan to use more than one air handler, it’s worth considering installing a multi-zone system.

If you plan to install ductless systems in more than one room, you need space for more outdoor condensers. A single condenser unit handles more indoor air handlers in a multi-zone system, streamlining the design with fewer outdoor units. You can also control multi-zone systems also allow for remote management.
