Zone Cooling is Within Reach
Ductless air conditioners are a smart choice for homes and businesses, although often overlooked. They are similar to a window unit because each indoor unit is designed to cool a single room.
Ductless air conditioners, however, are like a traditional air conditioner because they operate using an outside condenser unit and an evaporator coil inside. What separates ductless air conditioners from central air conditioning units is no ductwork is necessary.
Below are the top reasons ductless air conditioners can benefit you!
Healthier Indoor Air Quality
Ductless air conditioners have their own filter housed inside the indoor unit. The air inside a single room goes through the filtration process without mixing air from other areas of your home.
Without ductwork, extra contamination is eliminated compared to traditional forced air system. Central air conditioning circulates dirt, dust, pollen and other debris as it moves air throughout the ducts. You will experience healthier, cleaner indoor air when a ductless air conditioner is used.
No Major Renovations Necessary
Older homes, renovated additions or a converted sunroom or garage may not have ductwork available to connect to your current system. Adding ductwork to a house is a major renovation project, which can be overwhelming.
Ductless air conditioners are designed to cool a specific room without construction. You can pair multiple indoor units with a single outdoor unit to create a multiple zone split system. This allows you to operate each indoor unit independently from the other ductless air conditioners in your home or business.
Zero Energy Loss
Traditional air conditioning units deal with energy loss daily due to holes, gaps and cracks in the ductwork. The cool air escapes through these leaks, resulting in higher energy bills.
Ductless air conditioners deliver fresh, cool air directly to you. You don’t experience energy loss, which creates more energy-efficient cooling where a ductless air conditioner operates.
An additional benefit to consider is you won’t need to schedule duct cleaning services for your ductless air conditioners. No ducts mean no leaks or airflow restrictions due to obstructions clogging your unit.
Flexible and Versatile
Window air conditioners take up more space in a single room and eliminate the view from a window, which is not ideal if you only have one window in a room.
Ductless air conditioners are compact, so they need only a small area for installation. You can install the indoor unit on the wall, floor or ceiling. You will still enjoy the view from your windows. Plus, you avoid the sight of an ugly window unit hanging out of your home.
Double Duty Performance
One of the most significant advantages of ductless air conditioners is they do more than just cool an independent area. They operate similar to a heat pump, meaning you can enjoy your ductless air conditioners year-round.
Many ductless air conditioners are capable of heating during the colder months by a simple flip of a switch. Or the button on a remote! This comes in handy when areas of your home are hard to keep warm.
You operate each indoor unit only when necessary, which keeps you warm without running your heating 24/7 and increasing your energy bill.
