Adding a ductless multi-split system

The weather in Springfield, Missouri, is quite unpredictable.

The temperature can soar into the high eighties or plummer into the teens.

We often deal with excessive humidity, rain, hail, sleet and snow, all within a few week span. My home in Springfield is old and large, encompassing around twenty-five-hundred square feet. The house has seen a lot of renovations over the years. Walls have been removed and added. Windows have been enlarged and a screen porch enclosed. Very little attention was given to the design of the ductwork. There are areas of the house that lack sufficient vents to handle demand. When we first moved in, we got very frustrated with feeling overheated or chilly in certain rooms. Adjusting the thermostat simply resulted in the rest of the house being uncomfortable and especially high energy bills. We tried adding box fans and space heaters, but weren’t happy with the results. They offered little improvement to comfort while greatly detracting from aesthetics. After consulting with a local Springfield HVAC contractor, we decided to invest into a ductless system. The ductless configuration consists of an outdoor compressor that powers eight individual indoor air handlers. Each air handler features an independent thermostat and provides both heating and cooling capacity. We’re able to customize the temperature setting in each of those eight rooms. Despite the compact equipment, the ductless system is wonderfully powerful. The operation is quiet and amazingly energy efficient. We’ve found that the ductless units help with dehumidification in the summer and air filtration year round. I like that we can control the ductless air handlers by way of an app on our smartphones. We can program them to start up and shut down at specific times.
