Benefits of a Ductless Air Conditioning System

Tagged with: · ·

Homeowners in California often prefer a central air conditioning system, with ducts that move the cool air from the main unit throughout the home. While there are many benefits to central air, sometimes it makes sense to choose a ductless air conditioner instead.

Is a standalone air conditioner the right solution for your home? Here are a few benefits to consider:

Control Over the Cooling

These units are often used for small areas or rooms that don’t need to be cooled as frequently as the rest of the house. For example, if you have a sunroom or add-on to your home, then it might make sense to install a ductless air conditioning system.

This unit can be turned on when you are using the room. There is no need to cool the entire home if you are staying in one room for a few hours. A ductless system makes it easy to cool sections of your home, helping to reduce energy usage and protect the environment.

Cut Utility Costs

You can reduce your utilities because you don’t need to cool the room when it isn’t being used. Plus, a ductless system often runs on much less power compared to an HVAC system with ducts, helping to decrease utility expenses.

Also, consider the costs of installing vents for a new system. If you live in an older home that doesn’t have built-in vents, then it can be an expensive installation that takes weeks to complete. In comparison, a ductless air conditioner can be installed in a day, and there is no need to install bulky ducts throughout the house.

Placement of the Unit

When you choose a ductless system, you can be specific about the placement for maximum efficiency. The best thing is to discuss the installation with an expert in the industry. This conversation will give you access to personalized recommendations, and you can also get answers to your questions about the right unit to install.
