The picturesque neighborhoods of Clarksville, TN and the surrounding areas are lined with a variety of charming historic homes that were constructed long before today’s central air conditioning and forced air heating systems were designed and became popular. When attempting to update their HVAC system in a historic or older home, many homeowners discover that installing the necessary ductwork for a new system is all but impossible or too expensive. Luckily, ductless HVAC systems are easy to install and still get the job done!

Here just a few reasons why ductless HVAC systems make perfect sense for older homes
No ductwork required
Installing intricate ductwork in an older home that wasn’t designed for it can be costly and requires a lot of time and labor. Keep in mind that adding ductwork to a historic home can eat up precious square footage. Also, many homeowners associations or city codes have very strict protocols that limit any changes that can be made to the original architecture. As their name implies, ductless HVAC systems don’t require ductwork, saving you money and renovation time.
They’re more practical than window AC units
Window AC units aren’t always aesthetically pleasing as they obstruct the view outside and less noise, and you won’t have to deal with the hassle of installing or removing it with the changing seasons.
They’re safer than space heaters
According to the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) 32% of home heating fires involve the use of space heaters. While space heaters are only responsible for 32% of home heating fires, the fires they cause are deadly, and are responsible for 79% of deaths cause by home heating fires. Ductless HVAC systems all but eliminate the need for using a space heater, which in turn makes your home safer.
They’re highly efficient
In a ductless HVAC system, heated or cooled air has no way to leak or escape through small spaces in the ductwork. In fact, heat is transferred rather than being produced, allowing ductless HVAC systems to be even more efficient than gas boilers and furnaces.
