How To Upgrade Your HVAC System Without Removing Current Ductwork

Upgrading your home’s HVAC system is a big investment. Newer systems promise greater efficiency and lower energy bills, but require an upfront cost. And so you need to weigh your options before making a decision.

Mini-Split Technology

If you’re searching for an affordable and efficient HVAC system, consider one equipped with mini-split technology, which allows you to cool or heat the home by floors, rooms, or zones. A zoned system helps cut down on costs by cooling or heating zones to specific temperatures. For example, the unoccupied dining room and living room may not need as much cooling during the summer as the den and sun-facing bedroom. Some zones can have the HVAC system completely turned off.

Modern HVAC Options

The Mitsubishi Electric Zoned Comfort Solution uses an outdoor unit connected by refrigerant piping to one or more indoor units that are available in a variety of styles, including floor-mounted, wall-mounted, horizontal ducted, and more. The system can have one outdoor unit connected to as many as eight individual zones controlled by separate thermostats.

A ducted system is another option for homeowners who would like to keep their current ductwork intact. Mitsubishi’s PVA Multi-Position Air Handler has 12,000-42,000 BTU of cooling/heating power that can be harnessed through a horizontal or vertical configuration. No matter where the air handler is placed, the system will work quietly without disrupting the home. Best of all, each Mitsubishi Zoned Comfort Solutions system can provide 40% more efficiency than standard HVAC systems, 

Mitsubishi’s PVA Multi-Position Air Handler has ratings ranging from 18 to 21 SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio), making it an excellent eco-friendly choice. The brand’s systems can be controlled through a mobile app and customized with additional features to increase comfort. For example, sensors monitor room temperatures to adjust airflow, filters purify the air of stubborn pollutants, and RedLINK technology can connect up to 16 devices to the system without interfering with other wireless home devices.
