Ductless A/C Advantages

Why Choose a Ductless Air Conditioning Unit?

A ductless air conditioning system could be the perfect choice for meeting your in-home comfort needs. Whether you have a stubborn room that simply can’t seem to cool off during summer, are adding on to your home and don’t want to completely re-do your ductwork, or want to turn a previously unfinished space into a finished, useable, and comfortable room, a ductless system may be the perfect option. But why should you choose this option instead of using your existing central cooling?

The answer to this lies in the advantages of going ductless. Ultimately, it’s important to explore how a ductless system would work in your home when you make your decision, but we encourage you to keep these things in mind, as they could wind up making going ductless a much better choice.

Ease of Installation

Ductless systems are tremendously easy to install. In fact, installation can generally be completed in less than a day. Because you don’t have to run new air ducts to your space, which involves considerable labor and installation of new insulation, the process is much quicker and less intrusive to your home. In fact, for most ductless systems, the toughest part is cutting a small hole in your wall in order to allow refrigeration and electrical tubes to reach the outdoor unit.

Loaded with Technology

Ductless systems used to be pretty simple and not offer you all that much control. However, that’s no longer the case. Today’s ductless systems are packed with many of the same features that most modern central heating and cooling systems boast, including Wi-Fi connectivity, precise temperature control, automatic timers, energy readouts, and so much more. You can control most modern units from anywhere in the world, right from your smartphone!

Ease of Maintenance

Maintaining a ductless system is also generally simple. You do have to periodically change the air filter to ensure maximum efficiency and it’s a good idea to clean your coils once a year, but generally maintenance is pretty simple, and it’s fairly easy to do it since everything is contained within one small, convenient package.

Low Cost

Ductless systems are substantially cheaper than rearranging your central heating and cooling system, not to mention more effective. By adding more space to your existing system, your system may no longer be able to keep up with your demands, which means replacing it with a bigger, more powerful one. Even high-end ductless systems usually run less than $2,000 and many have a price tag under $1,000, which make them far more affordable.

Low Energy Usage

Because these systems are smaller, they use far less energy than a central heating and cooling system. That means you’ll receive effective cooling in a smaller space while paying only a fraction of what you would otherwise. This also gives you extra flexibility—when you’re not using the space with the ductless system, you can turn the system off, keeping it independent from the rest of your home.
