The concept of cooling indoor air during summer heat and humidity has been around as far back as ancient Egypt and Rome, but with primitive technology, cooling could only be accomplished at a great expense.
Soon after producing electricity on demand was possible, inventors began experimenting with how to cool a room. Central air conditioning became common in the 1970s and today 99% of homes in the south are built with AC.
If your home was built prior to 1970, air conditioning was not standard equipment; if you have central air, it was installed as a retrofit, probably at a great expense. In addition to HVAC components, walls were likely opened to install ductwork, both supply and return air vents.
If your home does not have central air conditioning, installing it may seem like a daunting, expensive proposition. If so, you might consider a mini-split ductless heat pump as a solution. This relatively new option might be ideal for an older home with no or limited ductwork.
Mini-split HVAC units are also attractive options for home offices or remote rooms that need additional heating and cooling. They work in a way similar to central air systems, but on a smaller scale and without installing ductwork throughout the home. Since they do not require ductwork or large components, they are easy and fast to install—most of the time installation takes one day.
Changing from heating to cooling instantly is very helpful. Hospitals, offices, hotels, and schools find this versatility useful. In addition, a mini-split provides both air conditioning and heating. A mini-split ductless system gives year-round temperature control room-by-room; no more freezing winter mornings or humid summer nights.
