Easy installation preserves vintage charm

Saint Paul, MN -- (ReleaseWire) -- 04/27/2018 -- Century-old Minneapolis homes can now retain their architectural beauty without sacrificing modern, air-conditioned comfort. At one time, installing air conditioning in a historic home meant adding noisy, unattractive window units or lowering high ceilings to conceal bulky ductwork. Today, such unsightly modifications are a thing of the past. McQuillan Bros' premier HVAC and plumbing contractors in Minneapolis bring cool, refreshing air to older houses by installing ductless central air conditioning. Ductless systems are practical and attractive retrofits for existing houses. This spring, Minnesota's Original cooling team is offering deep discounts on ductless installation.

Ductless Technology for Older Homes & New Additions

Ductless air conditioning systems take two forms: mini-split heat pumps and small-duct, high-velocity systems. Both types require minimal home alteration and are designed to deliver fresh, comfortable air to muggy Twin City residences.

Ductless Mini-Split Heat Pump Systems

Mini-splits consist of an outside condenser/heat exchanger connected to low-profile evaporative units installed in one to four rooms. Coolant passes from the condenser to the inside unit through a flexible, insulated hose that requires only a small hole drilled into an exterior wall. Mini-splits are quiet, energy-efficient cooling solutions for home additions, zoned applications where rooms are not used daily or houses with baseboard heating and no ductwork.

High-Velocity, Small-Duct Systems

High-velocity central cooling systems require almost no alteration or damage to interior finishes. These systems are perfect for updating a historic home or preserving an architectural gem. High-velocity systems use flexible, insulated tubing instead of ducts to connect the compressor and the air outlets. The compressor can be hidden inside an attic or closet. Tubing is threaded through wall studs or floor joists to compact, unobtrusive round vents. Since heating can also be added to the system, this type of ductless installation is a good solution for outdated boilers and radiators, too.
