Homeowners today looking to invest in new home cooling systems may be a bit taken aback by just how many options there are to choose from. Because you will rely on your air conditioner so much during the hottest months of the year, it is really in your best interest to get to know your cooling system options before deciding how you’ll go about cooling your house. One option well worth your consideration is the ductless air conditioner.
Ductless ACs offer many benefits thanks to their unique designs, and we’ve put together some information that should help you to decide if ductless cooling is right for your home and personal preferences. Just remember that your ductless AC must be professionally installed and serviced if it is to excel. Call and schedule your ductless AC services with the pros here at Ideal Services Heating & Cooling to ensure that this is the case.
Great Energy Efficiency
As with any other HVAC system, ductless air conditioners can be purchased at a variety of efficiency levels, and that efficiency level will play into the price of the system. However, the very design of ductless mini splits is enough to offer some efficiency benefits of its own. Because no air ducts are used in such systems, there is no risk of compromised air ducts wasting energy. This can help ductless mini-split users to cool their homes more affordably.
Another problem commonly associated with leaky ductwork is reduced indoor air quality. This is due to the fact that pollutants are able to infiltrate damaged air ducts with ease. Once they have, the ductwork itself will distribute those pollutants throughout the entire house. Again, this is not a problem that is at all applicable to ductless air conditioning systems.
If you have an older home or one that has never had a central AC installed, the installation of air ducts can be a major undertaking. It is one that you can avoid entirely when you opt for ductless cooling, though. Considering the benefits that ductless mini-splits have to offer, we understand if you’d like to speak with us today regarding the installation of such a system in your home.
