Why You Should Consider a Ductless AC Unit
A ductless air conditioner can circulate cool air without the use of traditional air ducts. These systems can be more cost-effective than conventional HVAC systems, but offer many practical benefits.
Easy to Install. Unlike traditional HVAC systems, ductless AC units can be installed in less than one day. Having a professional team install a complex system of ducts and air vents can take much longer, depending on the size of the project.
Small. Ductless units are very compact. They are ideal for dorm rooms, apartments, or extra rooms in your house where space is limited. They are also less noticeable in areas of the home that may not be well ventilated, like basements or attics.
Easy to Operate. Most units are operated by remote control. Too chilly while trying to study? Using your handy remote, the unit’s temperature can be adjusted without interrupting your train of thought.
Affordable. Smaller units use less power, which can be reflected in a smaller monthly energy bill, especially during those hot summer months. Multiple units can be used to cool different rooms, which means the energy is used only where it is needed, making ductless units more energy efficient.
Good for your lungs. Ductless units offer filtration systems that can improve your home’s air quality by removing allergens like dust, pollen, and pet dander. Proper filtration and ventilation can help prevent harmful bacteria and mold from developing in your home.
Environmentally friendly. Some smaller units follow EnergyStar guidelines, making them more energy efficient. More importantly, they reduce your carbon footprint by using refrigerant instead of cooling outside air. Refrigerants can have ‘zero ozone depletion potential,’ which will make a smaller impact on the environment.
Quiet. Ductless units produce less noise than their much larger counterparts. The dull hum of a smaller unit can be easily covered by music or conversation.
While traditional air conditioning units are still a popular option, new ductless models are becoming more common due to their numerous benefits. If you are interested in learning more, call us at 800-994-2577. We can help you determine if a ductless system is the right fit for your home.
