Ductless HVAC Installation In Fox River Grove, IL Split Level

Split level homes like this one in Shannon Creek Estates in Fox River Grove are notoriously hard to heat and cool. Based on a lot of experience with homes like this, we knew a multi-zone ductless HVAC installation would make this home comfortable from end to end all year long. 

Ductless is a Perfect Supplement to Your Boiler

This home relies on a hot water boiler and radiators for heat, but had no ductwork, so installing central air conditioning was a very expensive option. The homeowners were relying on heavy, noisy, and very inefficient air conditioners to try to keep cool in our increasingly hot and humid summers. 

The owners gave us a call here at Compass Heating and Air Conditioning to see what we could recommend to give them increased comfort, especially in the summer, while keeping their energy bills under control.

Problem: Homeowners of this split-level home were looking for more comfort than they were getting from window air conditioners in the summer, and they were tired of having to install and store the heavy, bulky units every year.

Solution: We installed a two zone Mitsubishi Electric ductless HVAC system, to create two independent zones of complete comfort all year long, while also reducing energy bills.

Split-level homes like this one in Fox River Grove, IL have multiple levels, so the HVAC system installation requires good air flow to make sure you don't have spots that are always too hot and others that are too cold. 

With radiators, you can get great heat, but you still may end up with cold spots. Your option is then to crank up the heat to try to get comfortable, but that causes a few rooms to get way too hot, and you end up wasting a lot of money on energy bills.

Ductless HVAC Provides the Best Air Conditioning and Air Quality

Window air conditioners seem like a good idea - a portable, seasonal appliance, you can put them where you want. But they are big, noisy, and inefficient, which makes them expensive to run and unpleasant to be around. 

Installing window air conditioners takes up most of a weekend, and there never seems to be the perfect time to do it. Put them in too early and you freeze if there's a cold spell, and too late, you spend a week or so sweating. Then, if you don't store them properly, they can pick up mold and mildew, and that can exacerbate allergies and breathing problems.

Our homeowners gave us a call to see if we could recommend a better solution. When we came out to the home, we knew immediately that a Mitsubishi ductless "mini-split" heating and air conditioning system would be just the ticket to comfort.

Multi-Zone Ductless HVAC Installation

A Mitsubishi ductless HVAC installation consist of two primary components. An outdoor condenser unit, and indoor, wall mounted units, sometimes called cassettes, that distribute air evenly throughout your living space, making sure every inch of your room is perfectly comfortable. 

Each outdoor units can support up to eight indoor wall mounted units, with each indoor unit creating a separate zone of comfort wherever you locate it. 

For a home like this one, we recommended a two zone ductless HVAC installation, one for the master bedroom and one for the kitchen/dining room/living room area. As in most split-level homes, the main living/dining/kitchen area was pretty open, so a single zone of ductless HVAC was a perfect choice to keep that area comfortable. 

A separate zone for the master bedroom would help make that room comfortable as well, ensuring a good night's sleep every night of the year.

A Ductless HVAC Installation is Super Efficient

One of the best features of a Mitsubishi ductless installation is that they use an incredibly efficient heat pump system to deliver both hot and cool air into your home on demand. 

By using inverter technology, something you usually only see on high-end whole home central heat and air conditioning systems, the system uses only the minimal amount of energy necessary to keep your room perfectly comfortable- just like the cruise control on your car. This extra-efficiency coupled with state of the art sensors that measure both heat and humidity mean that Mitsubishi ductless systems can deliver you maximum comfort throughout your rooms, eliminating hot and cold spots for good.

An added benefit is that the systems also employ fantastic air filtering systems to eliminate allergens in the air and they operate at only 22db- whisper-quiet! That means you'll no longer have to crank up the volume of the TV to hear over the window air conditioner, or worry that you won't hear the kids at night with that noisy window unit in your bedroom- quiet comfort is yours at last.

How many times have you had the argument with a spouse about whether it was time to turn on the heat yet, or turn it off for the season?
