Ductless Split Heating and Air Conditioning Services in Orange County

For many years, homeowners without sufficient space in their homes for ductwork didn’t have the option of installing a central air conditioning system. They were forced to rely on window units that cost a fortune to operate and are notoriously hard to service. For this reason, ductless split heating and air conditioning is a perfect option for many homeowners in Orange County with small spaces that can’t otherwise support cooling units.

If you are near Orange County and want to learn more about ductless split heating and air conditioning, call the experts at Saddleback Plumbing today. We provide a full line of services for homeowners throughout the region and can ensure you have the heating and cooling you need.

How Ductless Split Heating and Air Conditioning Works

A traditional air conditioner or heat pump works by producing heated or cooled air and then distributing it through ductwork to every room of your home. The problem is that many homes don’t have space for ductwork. That’s where ductless systems come in.

A ductless system has the same outdoor condenser unit of a central system, but instead of an indoor unit and air handler, a ductless system uses a series of tubes carrying refrigerant from the condenser to individual satellite units inside your home. These satellite units can be installed anywhere in your home and most systems can support multiple indoor units.

This means you can not only get cooling in places that you could not before, but you can control the cooling for each unit individually. Because of this individual control and because there is no ductwork to lose air in transit, the efficiency ratings of most ductless systems are much higher than they are for central units. You can save upwards of 30% on your energy bill using a system like this. Plus, they provide adequate heating for most winter nights.

Ductless Split Heating and Cooling Maintenance and Repair Options near Orange County

If you have an existing ductless split heating and cooling system, the same annual maintenance is required to keep it running in top condition. During these maintenance visits, we will inspect the condenser unit and check the electrical connections for it and all satellite units. Refrigerant tubing is also checked to ensure it hasn’t been damaged and the satellite units are tested to ensure they work properly, keeping your home near Orange County at a comfortable temperature.

If you are interested in having a new ductless split heating and cooling system installed in your home or you have one already and need someone to take over regular maintenance service on it, now is the time to call Saddleback Plumbing. We can ensure your system works as efficiently as possible from the start and that it continues working as intended for years to come.
