As you work to install a new air conditioning system in your home, consider making the switch to a ductless air conditioning system. You can install a ductless air conditioning system even if you previously had a ducted air conditioning system. Ductless air conditioning systems offer many benefits.
Lower Lifelong Cost
One of the main reasons to switch to a ductless system is the lower lifetime cost. With a ductless system, you can install a combined heating and air conditioning unit, so you don't have to run and operate an air conditioning system and a heating system separately, which can be costly to maintain.
Additionally, with a ductless system, you don't have to worry about insulating the ducts or repairing them, which can add to the lifelong cost of taking care of your air conditioning system.
Ductless systems also cost less to install, as they require less equipment than a traditional duct air conditioning system.
Extremely Efficient Operations
With a duct system, after the air conditioner cools down the air, it then has to be pushed through your vent system, which can account for a significant amount of energy loss. With a ductless air system, the cool air is blown directly into your room from the system.
The air doesn't have to travel through a system of ducts; it is cooled right in place. This cuts down on lost energy, allowing for a more efficiently operating system.
Ductless air conditioning systems can do more than just cool your home; they can also serve as your heating system as well, so you don't have to use a furnace, boiler, or other heating systems to heat up your home.
Ductless air conditioning systems can be switched to the heat function with a simple flip of the switch. This can allow you to enjoy comfortable temperatures in your home throughout the year.
With a ductless heating system, the units are installed directly in the rooms you want to cool off. They are often installed high up on the wall so as to not take away from valuable square footage in your home. In many homes, ductless AC units are installed directly over the windows.
With these individual units spreads throughout your home, you can use a zone-heating system, where you can control the temperature independently in each room a unit is installed in. Perhaps you want the bedrooms colder than the rest of the home; that can be achieved with a ductless air conditioning system.
A ductless air conditioning system offers lower lifelong costs, is extremely energy efficient, provides for zone-heating control, and can provide you with year-round comfort.
