Older homes from the early to mid-1900s have a lot of charm with their classical appearance. They can also have all or most of the conveniences of a modern residence if they’re retrofitted. With this in mind, is it possible to install a contemporary ductless air conditioning system in an older house in Puyallup?
Why Traditional HVAC Systems Are Incompatible
You can indeed install a ductless system for an older building. In fact, it’s a better solution than installing a conventional HVAC unit. Residences that were constructed in the 1970s and before have air conditioning and furnace units stored in the basement. These systems have a network of pipes stored behind the walls that cycle air into the individual rooms. If you were to install a traditional HVAC system, the entire pipe and duct system would have to be torn down and replaced. Since they’re located behind the walls, part of the walls would have to be torn down as well.
Why Ductless Systems Are the Way to Go
With ductless cooling and heating systems, no ductwork is required. There’s no need to access the ducts behind the walls. Ductless units are also more energy efficient. This is a huge plus given that older residences tend to be less energy sufficient due to poor insulation. In addition, ductless systems also enable temperature adjustment in each individual room. This has made the system the air conditioning unit of choice for older facilities like historical inns and bed and breakfasts.
