If you’ve dreamt of the cool relief of air conditioning during those long, humid Elkhart summers, but your home lacks the necessary ductwork, Henry Smith Plumbing, Heating & Cooling has a rewarding solution. You only need a wall or a ceiling, and we have the ideal system for you. There are no major renovations required, very little mess, and Ductless Mini Split systems integrate neatly into your space. Mounted high on the wall or even flush in a drop ceiling, these units are unobtrusive but effective, gently directing treated air to every corner of the room.
As a Carrier Factory Authorized Dealer, Henry Smith Plumbing, Heating & Cooling offers the most sophisticated technology, convenient features, and greatest energy savings in ductless heating and cooling. The Toshiba Carrier Residential Series is the pinnacle of ductless comfort, providing unsurpassed temperature control in a compact wall system. Achieving a staggering SEER of up to 23 for cooling, and impressive HSPF ratings of up to 10.0 for heating, this ultra quiet heat pump offers state-of-the-art convenience with a wireless remote, five fan speeds, and a turbo-mode for those times you’d like to adjust the temperature quickly.
With Ductless Mini Split systems, you condition only the zones you want, saving money on those areas that no one is occupying. Deliver just the right amount of heating and cooling to up to eight individual zones! And since people tend to feel comfortable at different settings, separate thermostats in each room allow you to answer specific preferences for temperature.
Retrofitting homes for central air necessitates cutting holes in walls, floors, ceilings and through closets. Portable cooling units eliminate the view from your favorite window, and because of open windows, can pose a security risk. When you call Henry Smith Plumbing, Heating & Cooling for residential or commercial installation of a Mini Split system, our NATE-certified technicians will facilitate your project with quick turnaround time, an organized job area, foot and floor coverings, and complete clean-up after the job. Other than total year-round comfort at your fingertips, you won’t even know we were there.
Ductless Mini Split systems offer interior design flexibility. Like a standard air-source heat pump, these systems have two main components. Most indoor units are only about seven inches deep, feature attractive jackets, and can easily be tucked into a wall or ceiling. The outdoor unit can be located as far as fifty feet from the indoor evaporator, so it can be concealed from view and sound levels kept to a minimum. Hook-ups between the indoor and outdoor unit require only a three to four inch diameter hole in an outside wall for the conduit.
No Ductwork Required!
Losses due to ductwork can add up to more than 30% of energy consumption for space conditioning, especially if the ducts are located in unconditioned spaces and are in poor condition. With a Mini Split system, there are no ducts, so they avoid those energy losses and provide superior savings. You’ll also enjoy fewer maintenance requirements and improved indoor air quality.
