Ductless air conditioning systems go by many names: ductless air conditioners, ductless mini split, ductless split system, or ductless heat pump. No matter what you call it, all ductless AC systems work just like traditional air conditioners. Like a conventional air conditioner, there is an outdoor compressor unit and an indoor air handler. Unlike a traditional AC, the indoor unit is not connected to a distribution system, mounted high up on the wall instead to bring air directly into a room.
There may be one indoor unit for a single room or a small home, or there may be several indoor air handlers for an entire house. Most outside compressors can pump refrigerant to up to four indoor air handlers. Refrigerant moves from the outside unit to the air handlers converting from a liquid to a gas and back again in order to remove heat from the air in your home and blow cool air directly into the space.
Many homeowners end up purchasing small room or window air conditioners when they lack a central duct system. However, these units have a lot of trouble cooling down a space completely. They are also rather noisy and require a lot of energy to run. Ductless air conditioners are far more effective and efficient than window units and even many other central air and heat systems.
These units can actually provide ductless heating and cooling, as ductless heat pumps also have the ability to run in reverse (removing heat from the outside air to bring indoors). A whole–home ductless split system has the added benefit of built–in zone control, as you can operate any single air handler independently of the others with separate thermostats in each zone.
A ductless heating system is, as you might imagine, a heating system that doesn’t use ducts. The system itself is actually constructed more like an air conditioner than a heater. It has a minimum of two units, one inside and one outside, which are connected by refrigerant and power lines. During operation, the outside unit evaporates refrigerant to absorb heat from the air. Then it sends the refrigerant inside where it is condensed to release the heat. Think of it as acting like an air conditioner, but in reverse. Ductless heating systems also include a reversing valve, which allows them to change the flow of refrigerant through their systems.
Rather than using ducts, the ductless heating system uses an individual indoor air handler for each room that requires heating. Each of these air handlers is outfitted with its own thermostat, allowing it to operate independently from the rest of the system.
Because ductless systems don’t burn fuel to create heat, they’re far more energy efficient than more traditional combustion–based heating systems. Over time, you can save hundreds or even thousands of dollars in energy savings. Ductless heaters also allow you to modulate how much heat each room receives. Since each room has its own differences in insulation, it’s going to have its own ideal heat settings. A central heating system provides the same amount of heat to all rooms, creating uncomfortable hot and cold spots. With a ductless heating system, you don’t have to worry about that. Finally, the construction of ductless heating systems actually allows them to act as air conditioners as well as heaters.
Installing a ductless system is a bit more complex than installing a central heating system, primarily because most homes are already outfitted to handle centralized heaters. Installing each individual air handler in the rooms you want heated is going to require a bit of alteration to either the walls or ceilings, not to mention proper conduit lining. That’s why you always want to trust us to handle your ductless heating system installation for you.
Just like any other system, ductless heating systems have occasional repair needs. Annual maintenance will lessen the frequency of these problems, but every once in a while they’re still probably going to pop up. If you need your ductless heating system repaired or serviced, call Air Services Unlimited. We offer comprehensive ductless heating services throughout Beaumont, TX.
Unlike a window or room air conditioner, you cannot expect to install this system on your own. An HVAC professional is necessary for installation and service if you want to be sure that this system runs as efficiently as possible. The professionals at Air Services Unlimited will do everything possible to make sure that your new ductless AC system functions properly or to repair a malfunctioning unit. Allow us to help you select a new system and make sure that it is the proper size for your home in Beaumont, TX, or call us if your ductless system runs into any trouble and needs AC repair.
One of the most efficient ways to heat or cool a home is using the energy just beneath the surface of the earth. Geothermal systems use a renewable energy source in order to bring heat into your home in the winter or cool down your home in the hottest months. These systems are long-lasting, durable, and can save you a lot of money each month. And the experts at Air Services Unlimited can make sure that your new geothermal heating and cooling system is installed properly.
We pride ourselves on quality craftsmanship and providing our customers a positive experience. Call us to get started on your geothermal heat pump installation or to schedule repairs or annual maintenance. We will make sure that your unit runs as efficiently as it was designed to, and we will take the time to make sure all of the parts are in top condition. Give us a call today!
Geothermal heating and cooling systems draw on the thermal energy in the earth to bring heating into the home or to cool the air. This is one of the most efficient systems you can install on your property, and you can be sure that it runs properly when you trust our technicians to secure this complex equipment on your property or to provide repairs and maintenance.
One of the main concerns homeowners have before scheduling geothermal installation is about the installation process. Installing a geothermal heat pump does involve time and some amount of mess, as part of your property will need to be excavated for the installation to take place. An underground loop is installed in your yard, but this loop should last for many years, and may not need replacement as long as you own the home. Otherwise, geothermal installation is much like it is with any other air conditioning system, involving the installation of both a compressor unit and an indoor air handler.
There are generally two ways the underground loop may be installed: vertically or horizontally. Horizontal loop fields are favored by most technicians, as they are easier and less costly to install. However, if you do not have enough space on your property for a large trench, vertical installation may be necessary. Ask one of our technicians for an assessment of your home in Beaumont, TX to determine which type of installation is right for you.
Geothermal systems take advantage of the fact that the temperature of the earth is relatively stable if you dig down deep enough. The temperature a few feet underneath the earth’s surface is generally about 55°F. The underground loop system contains water or a water–refrigerant blend which transfers the heat energy from the earth to your heat pump for heating. And in the summer, heat from your home is transferred into the earth, and the cool water returning to the system helps to cool down the home.
Installing a geothermal system is not a job for just any technician. Not every heating and air conditioning contractor offers geothermal heat pump installation or service. But the experts at Air Services Unlimited are more than qualified to take care of any geothermal service you may need. Trust us to provide you with the services you need to keep your geothermal system running properly.
A heat pump is a heating and cooling system with an indoor and outdoor unit, just like a conventional AC. However, heat pumps are very efficient, and can save you money throughout the year. Call us if you notice any issues with your heat pump or if you require repairs.
Are you looking into replacing your heating and/or air conditioning system sometime soon? You may want to consider a different kind of HVAC system this time around: the heat pump. A heat pump is a single system which provides efficient heating and cooling. Heat pump installation is no different than installing a conventional split-system air conditioner, which means many homes are already set up to have one installed. All you have to do is contact a skilled technician for services, like the friendly people at Air Services Unlimited.
Our HVAC technicians are highly trained in the installation and service of heat pumps. We install only the top brands and the most efficient equipment, and we use up-to-date methods and high quality replacement parts for any repair. We don’t just switch out parts and hope for the best; we put a lot of time and all of our expertise into every job we complete. Call us today for quality heat pump services in your area.
Any home with a set of ducts can have a heat pump installed. Heat pumps contain an outside compressor unit and an indoor air handler, just like any standard electro–mechanical air conditioning system. The difference is that there are a few extra components that allow refrigerant to move in reverse and bring heat into the home. This installation is ideal for anyone looking to replace an air conditioning and heating system at once, as it does cost more than a standard AC. However, the benefits are well worth the added upfront cost, and this may even be offset over time.
Of course, the main feature of a heat pump is its ability to heat and cool a home. Having a single system to do both jobs is convenient, saving you some time and hassle later on. Your heat pump should be effective year–round here in Beaumont, Texas; all you have to do is flip a switch on your thermostat from “heat” to “cool.”
The main benefit of heat pump installation is that these systems operate very efficiently. Less energy is required to move heat from inside to outside and vice versa than is required of heating systems that generate heat. And a heat pump is able to transfer heat from the outside air even when it becomes very chilly outside, so you can expect to save year round.
Heat pumps are known to be durable, but this does not mean you won’t need to schedule service for it eventually. Schedule heat pump maintenance each year to prevent problems from occurring with your system. Maintenance involves a tune–up of many of the major components as well as a thorough inspection of the entire system. This helps us to identify issues early on so you can schedule heat pump repair if necessary.
Schedule heat pump repair, installation, maintenance, or replacement with the skilled technicians on our staff. The Air Services Unlimited team wants to help you get the most out of your heating and cooling system this year with quality heat pump services in Beaumont.

Have you ever had an argument with the people in your home about the temperature? Often, one family member would prefer to keep the home cooler than comfortable for many of the other people in the household. This means you end up turning down the temperature throughout the house for the good of only one family member, using excess energy in the process. A zone heating and cooling system allows you more control over your HVAC system with separate thermostats in each room or zone. Call Air Services Unlimited to learn more about zone heating and AC in your area.
A zone control system may be just what you need to keep everyone in the home more comfortable. Call Air Services Unlimited if you would like to gain greater control over the performance of your air conditioner with the installation of a zone control system.
Installing a zone air conditioning and heating system is a complex job that requires the help of a trained HVAC technician. Your technician must cut open the ducts, install dampers, connect these to a control system, and reseal the ducts. Several dampers are placed throughout the ducts—one in each zone of the home—and these open or close in order to let air in and out. Each damper is controlled by its own thermostat and connected to a master thermostat that controls everything at once.
Zone control systems offer several benefits to homeowners. Take a look at what a zone heating and cooling system can do for your home and family.
If you want to keep your home more comfortable and lower your bills without replacing your entire HVAC system, now is the time to think about installing a zone control system. Call the professional HVAC technicians at Air Services Unlimited to schedule zone control system installation or service in your area today.
