Best AC Unit for Your Boiler Heated Home

May 5, 2016

If I have radiators can I have AC?

The answer is YES!

The popular word is ductless AC, as installers, we refer to them as LG, Daikin and Mitsubishi. In the picture, we are showing the major components. The indoor unit hangs on the wall and the outdoor unit could either be wall mounted or placed on the ground.

These units have been in service for roughly 15 years. Over the years, the ductless AC units have grown in popularity because they also offer the ability to heat. Here in our Boston office, I have had three Mitsubishi units heating and cooling our office and server room.

Here’s What You Can Do

If you’re tired of hauling out the window units and the storage issues as well, pick up the phone and call us. We are happy to discuss if this is a great solution for you or not. Ideally, these ductless mini splits are well suited for Brown stones, older homes without ducts and family rooms.A ductless mini-split system may be your best bet if your home is heated through a boiler. The ductless systems come with both an outdoor unit as well as an indoor unit, both of which are connected by a small hole in the wall. Ductless mini-split systems do not require ducts and can be adjusted to push out both hot and cool air. Homeowners are especially fond of the clean, quiet and cooled air that circulates.

If you decide to take this route, zoning can be set up in the home to cool only some rooms while still maintaining maximum comfort level throughout the entire house. One of the major benefits of ductless mini-split systems is the savings. Since you are only cooling the spaces you need, you can save a bundle on energy costs. Additionally, ductless mini splits provide a supplemental heating source in case your boiler stops working.

5 Benefits of Ductless Cooling:

  1. It is highly flexible for various buildings and spaces
  2. Energy efficient by having various “zones” in home, cooling spaces that are being used.
  3. Improve air quality – no need for duct cleaning
  4. Easy to install and less invasive
  5. Lowers your carbon footprint and less impact on the environment throughout its lifecycle
