Ductless Systems in Staten Island, NY

Many homes in Staten Island, NY were built in an era before central air conditioning was common. These homes can enjoy quality heating through boiler systems, but they miss out when it comes to air conditioning. The best they can manage—or at least until recently—was to use window air conditioning units, which aren’t energy efficient or convenient and can even make a house less secure.

But the alternative is here: ductless mini split systems. In fact, ductless air conditioning (and heating) offers advantages even for homes that don’t necessarily need it in order to enjoy central comfort. Scaran installs and provides other services for ductless heating and air conditioning. We have a long history in the area helping homes enjoy comfort: what sets us apart in this market is that we’re consumers as well and know exactly what our customers need. That’s why back up all our work and our motto is “Can Do!”

They were on time, and they did a very thorough job. They explain everything step-by-step as they go.

How Ductless Mini Splits Work

You’re already familiar with the standard split system air conditioner: an outdoor condenser and an indoor air handler and evaporator. A ductless mini split works in much the same way—but the difference is that instead of a single indoor unit that connects to a ventilation system, a ductless mini split uses multiple smaller–sized indoor units that send air straight into the living space without ducts. Each of these smaller units is mounted on the wall of a room, often over a window or exterior door, and contains a blower fan and refrigerant coil. The units connect to the outdoor unit through power and refrigerant lines that run out of small holes drilled through the wall. Each outdoor unit can support four different indoor units.

The Advantages of Ductless Heating and Air Conditioning

Why have a ductless system installed? There are a number of advantages to consider:

  • Flexibility: For older homes that lack space for ducts, using a ductless system is a way to have efficient, central air conditioning and heating. Ductless systems are also good solutions for remodeling and add–on rooms.
  • Energy savings: Ductless mini splits consume less energy than standard systems that rely on ducts because they use smaller motors and don’t lose or gain heat through duct walls.
  • Zone control: Each indoor unit can be operated with a remote control separate from the other units. This means there’s no need to waste energy running units in unoccupied rooms while the others are on.
