There are many older homes here in Northern Connecticut that use a boiler for heat and so do not have ductwork.
For a long time, if you had a home without ductwork, your only options for air conditioning were to go through the costly and messy process of adding ducts or resigning yourself to using window units.
However, window units have several disadvantages. Inefficiency and noise top the list, followed by light-blocking and letting in outdoor debris like dust, pollen, dirt or insects. They are also a security risk. Installing and removing window units in the spring and fall is also difficult and potentially dangerous, particularly if you’re on a second or third story.
There’s a much better option. Ductless mini-splits from Taylor Energy eliminate all of that and also help slash your cooling costs!
Because we handle everything from sales and installation to mini-split maintenance and mini-split repair, using Taylor Energy to add mini-splits to your home is a hassle-free process.
Taylor is a Pro Dealer for LG ductless mini-splits, one of the best around. You get a 12-year labor warranty on LG mini-splits. We can also provide assistance with financing and any rebates your new units qualify for. By the way, your mini-splits may also qualify for a federal Energy Star® tax credit!
Your new ductless mini-splits will be installed by our team of skilled and experienced service technicians. Our affordable service plans help keep them running smoothly with annual maintenance tune-ups and also help cover many parts and labor costs for repairs.
If you don’t have ductwork in your home and want to have central air conditioning, it will cost several thousand dollars to add the ductwork. You will also have to live in a dusty, dirty work zone while your walls and ceilings are opened up for the ductwork installation.
Installing ductless mini-splits can be done in one day with considerably less work and no big mess.
Ductless mini-splits are much more energy efficient than window units. A mini-split uses approximately 40% less energy than a window unit. You can also improve your home’s efficiency by zoning the cooling!
If you have central air conditioning and have built an addition onto your home or have added finished space like an attic bedroom or office, you can use ductless mini-splits to provide cooling to those spaces and lighten the workload for your central A/C, helping it to last longer.
As with all your home’s heating, cooling and comfort equipment, regular maintenance of your ductless mini-split will help it run better and extend its life expectancy, which can be up to 30 years.
Our service technicians perform annual maintenance tune-ups for mini-splits. We’ll inspect air filters and clean or replace them, clean both the indoor and outdoor units, clean the condensing unit and outdoor coil, and perform a thorough inspection of your mini-splits to make sure that there’s enough refrigerant and to detect any problems so that they can be fixed before they get worse and cause a breakdown.
There are several things you can do between tune-ups to keep your ductless mini-splits running smoothly. One of the most important things is to add cleaning them to your regular housecleaning chore list. Here’s how to do it:
Ductless mini-splits, also called heat pumps, are a very simple system with only two major components: the outdoor compressor unit and the indoor air handler. A tube connecting the compressor and the condenser also houses power-and-communication lines.
The compressor, as its name implies, compresses refrigerant. The cooled refrigerant is then delivered to the condenser, where it loses its heat and is sent out of the system to the outdoors. The refrigerant is now a liquid and is pumped into the evaporator via the conduit. Warm indoor air is blown over the evaporator coils, causing the refrigerant to absorb heat. The cooled air from the air handler is sent into your house.
