Mini-Splits/Ductless Air Conditioning in Duluth, Hermantown, and Two Harbors, MN and Surrounding Areas
The summers up here in the Northland can be quite uncomfortable with the traditional high humidly and many times high temperatures. Many existing homes in Duluth, Hermantown and Two Harbors do not have a forced air furnace with duct work system to install the traditional “central air conditioning”. However, if your home can not support a traditional ductwork-based system, there is a solution with the ductless air conditioning system that involves the installation of a wall hung cassette type air handler for each desired cooling area, eliminating the need for a duct system. The indoor units are connected to an extremely quiet and efficient outdoor condenser unit, which removes the humidly and hot air from home and discharges to outside.
Another benefit to installing a Ductless mini-split system is that it is a heat pump and can provide auxiliary, very efficient heat during the shoulder heating seasons Sep-Nov, Mar-May allowing less run time on your primary, often times more expensive, heating system.
Some of the benefits of a Ductless mini-split system are:
- Allows for independent operation and control for each room or zone
- Lower energy costs when each zone can be controlled independently
- Quick installation time and less invasive structure remodeling needed
- Work very well for humidly control.
- Very quiet operation.
- Work very well for slab on grade constructed homes with in-floor slab heating that do not have traditional duct work systems.
