There are a lot of older homes and commercial buildings here in the greater Augusta area, and many of these are heated with boilers, which work well for efficient, comfortable heating.
But having a boiler often means that adding central air conditioning becomes prohibitively expensive for homeowners and business owners. This is because you have to add ductwork to your home or building to have central A/C, and adding ductwork can get very costly. It also means that your home or business is going to be dusty and messy potentially for weeks as walls and ceilings are opened up to install the ductwork.
If this is your situation, you may think your only other option is window units. But window units are inefficient and noisy. They’re unsightly from both indoors and outside. They block light and let in dust, pollen and bugs. They can also be a security risk.
But there is an alternative that doesn’t involve ductwork or window units: heat pumps!
Heat pumps, also known as ductless mini-splits, are a more cost-effective option than installing central air conditioning and adding ductwork.
Heat pumps also let you zone your cooling for better energy efficiency, especially when you compare them with window air conditioning units. You can control which areas are cool, and when!
