Ductless technology has taken the world by storm. New York didn’t get the memo! While ductless air conditioning and heat pump systems have been the fastest growing sector of heating and cooling systems in many parts of the world, for a variety of reasons the US has been slow to adopt this approach to HVAC. Advocates cite ductless HVAC as easy to install and require less fan energy than central air ducted systems. Ductless split systems offer targeted cooling and heating comfort to zones in residential and commercial buildings. These systems were frontrunners in multiple heating and cooling stages and variable fan speeds. In existing buildings with no central AC, a ductless system may offer the most practical solution to a zoned cooling system – and take over the heating as a significant bonus.
In this session we will hear from two equipment manufacturers, a system design firm, and facility manager relaying their experience with these increasingly popular systems.
