Is a Ductless Air Conditioner the Right Choice for You?

Is a Ductless Air Conditioner the Right Choice for You?

Maybe your home has a room that isn’t cool enough or has no ducting. A ductless air conditioner might be the thing you need! Read on to learn more.

Whether you spend a lot of time at home or spend all day at an office, relief in the sweltering summer is essential.

Perhaps your home or office wasn’t built with ducts and you need an immediate, cost effective solution to keeping your rooms cool this summer. A new study shows that productivity in the workplace plummets under higher temperatures.

The answer: a ductless air conditioner. These ductless, sleek systems have been in use all over Europe and in Japan for years. There are many benefits to using a ductless air conditioner.

The New York Times listed mini splits as one of the best ways to cool your space this summer. Let’s dive into some of the benefits:

1. Optimal Efficiency

Becuase these HVAC systems don’t need ductwork, you won’t suffer from the thermal air losses that forced-air systems do. The mini splits have to meet the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ration standards that central air systems do.

The air from the mini splits blow directly in the room from the outdoor refrigerant lines that channel the air and energy directly to you. Each ductless air conditioner comes with its own compressor/condenser.

Each unit has its own thermostat as well, and will quickly arrive at your desired temperature once it’s selected. Each room in your home can be a different temperature if you chose. The remote controls that come with each ductless air conditioner make for easy living and require little labor to maintain.

2. Easy Installation

Installation for HVAC systems is easy. Some manufacturers encourage a licensed HVAC contractor.  The contractor will cut a small hole through your wall where you can run the system lines, drain, cables and power to your central outdoor unit.

They will then install the system flush to your wall and mount it according to the instructions. The unit looks modern and will be inconspicuous, especially if it matches your wall color.

What’s more? If the room or office that needs cooling doesn’t have a window, it doesn’t matter.  Mini splits are mounted on any wall you are able to drill a hole through.

3. Ductless Air Conditioner Cost

Retrofitting a home for central air is a costly event. A ductless air conditioner is available for purchase at a fraction of the cost and are just as efficient. Because the systems are complete with optimal efficiency, your monthly bill will be lower as well.

Central AC units only allow you to set one temperature for the entire house. With HVAC systems you are able to customize the temperature of each room which will also keep your bill down.

The inverter technology in the mini split works with thermal refrigerant lines to make the system energy efficient for maximum cooling. By keeping the room idle between temp changes, you’ll avoid major spikes that often raise your bill.

The High-Tech Hush

A ductless air conditioner is your best bet for optimal cooling and low monthly bills. It’s also quiet as a mouse during use, easy to install and requires no maintenance.

These systems are the answer for anyone looking to stay cool in the summer heat without breaking their bank.
