Can Air Conditioning Be Added to My Older House?

Monday, June 26th, 2017

ductless-mini-split-and-remoteCentral air conditioning first entered homes in the 1920s. However, these were expensive luxury items that only the wealthiest could afford. It wasn’t until the 1950s and the invention of the window air conditioning unit that air conditioning started to become widespread. In the 1960s, central air conditioning started to become a standard part of new home construction: ductwork was designed to be placed between walls and in the attic so cooled air from an evaporator and air handler could travel to the different rooms.

However, if you live a home that was built before central heating and cooling became commonplace (and there are plenty of these older homes here in Western North Carolina), there won’t be space for ductwork to allow for standard central cooling—not unless you have large house of the home ripped out. Will you just have to rely on window air units? We’re sure you won’t want that, since window units are inefficient, look unpleasant, and can add a security risk to your home.

But there is a way to add central air conditioning to an older home without making significant changes to it: The answer is ductless mini split systems. Installing a ductless mini split system won’t require doing major remodeling work to install ducts wherever installers can find a place to squeeze them in. Ductless systems combine the power and convenience of central air conditioning with the small size and direct cooling of a window unit. (more…)
