Hot and cold spots are frustrating, in addition to being uncomfortable. Rather than avoiding certain areas of your Spartanburg SC, home because of inconsistent comfort, consider ductless AC.
What Causes Hot and Cold Spots?
As you relax in your home, are you always reaching for a blanket in one room and shedding a sweater in another? Hot and cold spots arise for several reasons, but they typically fall into one of three categories:
- Architectural: A high ceiling in a living room, a room addition, an upstairs vs. downstairs room, and the distance from the air handler are a few of the design elements that can cause inconsistent cooling.
- HVAC related: Leaky ductwork, incorrectly sized equipment, and reduced airflow contribute to uneven temperatures.
- Natural effects: Rooms with intense sun or consistent shade will vary in temperature compared to the rest of your home.
How Do Ductless Mini-Splits Help?
We can remedy your HVAC-related hot and cold spots through our AC repair, maintenance, and replacement services. If your hot and cold spots stem from architectural or natural effects, ductless AC might be the ideal solution.
Ductless mini-splits divide your home into zones, with each area having its own AC unit. A separate thermostat controls each zone, allowing you to account for the direct sunlight streaming into your living room or the cathedral ceiling in your master bedroom. Since the cooled air flows directly into each zone rather than arriving through a network of air ducts, you avoid the 30 percent energy loss associated with ductwork.
Whether you use your mini-split as a standalone system or as a complement to a ducted system, ductless systems deliver efficient, cost-effective cooling.
