The benefits of owning one of the mini-split systems available through Kane Heating And Air Conditioning include:
- No cumbersome and unattractive ductwork
- Easy, quick installation
- Energy Star rated components and high SEER ratings
- Configurable zone air conditioning and heating options
An HVAC zone system components include indoor air handlers, a heat pump, a conduit hidden within the wall, which houses power cables, refrigerant, suction, water tubing, and a drain. All pass through the conduit and outdoors to the exterior compressor/condenser. Each compressor handles up to five indoor units.
Depending on the square footage of your interior structure, available systems capably accommodate up to nine zones. The number of air handlers and optional accompanying heat pumps depends on the BTUs needed for efficient cooling and heating.
Our technicians typically install visible indoor air handlers into the upper region of a wall, in the ceiling, or as a free-standing floor console. You can then set or adjust individual zone temperatures easily using the controls on the unit or a hand-held remote. As the cooled or heated air need not travel long distances through ductwork, the temperature remains constant. Thus, the systems require less energy to efficiently and effectively perform indoor climate control.
Traditional heating and cooling systems that use ductwork routinely require filter replacement and other maintenance services in order to keep airborne contaminants at a minimum. By having individual units and eliminating ductwork, you will reduce your maintenance needs along with the level of harmful particulates entering the atmosphere. HVAC zone control thereby offers greater health benefits.
