Portland, Oregon is filled with many beautiful older homes, brimming with a history and personality all of their own. Because their charming characteristics are irreplaceable, the thought of extensive remodeling to update these classic buildings with modern conveniences makes many homeowners uneasy. However, anyone can now easily experience the comfort of air conditioning in Portland, Oregon thanks to ductless heating and cooling!

The mess and expense of retroactively adding duct work to a building for air conditioning is no longer a concern for those suffering from the hot, humid summer weather in Portland, Oregon. Working similarly to conventional central air systems, ductless air conditioning and heating systems consist of an outdoor unit and your choice of several indoor fixtures. The wiring and tiny refrigerant lines enter the home through a small hole, effectively hiding them and providing a clean, efficient installation. The ductless outdoor unit is also much quieter and far smaller than a conventional outdoor unit, typically measuring 32 inches by 11 inches by 7 inches deep and weighing a mere 18 pounds.

The indoor units can be mounted on a wall or in your ceiling, freeing up valuable floor space and eliminating the need for bulky portable air conditioners. Ductless air conditioning also beats unsightly window units by offering quieter operation and adding more value to your home. Window air conditioners must also be inconveniently stored every winter and, most importantly, create a huge security risk for you and your family.

Indoor units are extremely flexible and can be operated via a wired thermostat or for the ultimate in convenience, a wireless remote control. On some units, even the louvers can be adjusted to get cold, refreshing air right where you need it most. As if that weren’t enough, there are units available that provide both air conditioning and heat, allowing a sleek, efficient, and cost-effective way to enhance or even replace your entire heating and cooling system.

Furthermore, since ductless systems do not have to force air through long, large ducting, they are far more efficient than conventional air conditioning units, saving not only our environment but your pocketbook, as well.
