The Surprising Benefits of a Ductless Air Conditioner

HVAC units are traditionally placed in the attic or crawlspace, but this isn’t always convenient, especially if you live in a small home or one that cannot structurally support the unit. However, a ductless air conditioner can provide an even temperature throughout your home or business without taking up any space. 

Here are some of the many benefits of a ductless air conditioner that you might not have known about before reading this blog.

Central Air Vs Ductless Cooling

When it comes to cooling, you’ll usually be presented with two main options: A central air system or a ductless air conditioner. While both can do an adequate job of keeping your home cool, some advantages and disadvantages can come with each option. 

Take, for example, whole-house systems – they work very well in terms of cooling larger areas because they’re designed to supply large volumes of cool air through multiple zones. If you live in a smaller home and would rather only cool certain rooms or your living space isn’t very big, then you may want to look into a ductless system instead.

Easy Installation

Because ductless air conditioners don’t require ductwork, they can be installed in just about any room and can be removed easily. Since these units are designed to heat and cool only one room, some people prefer to install them in bedrooms or other spaces where climate control is most important. 

And because installation is so quick and easy, you won’t have to worry about leaving furniture out of place for long periods — or making unnecessary trips to your storage unit when it comes time to put your AC away for winter. If you have an extra room that you don’t use year-round (maybe a guest bedroom), consider adding a ductless AC.

Energy Efficient

You’ll be pleasantly surprised to know that mini-split ductless air conditioners are considered energy-efficient cooling solutions. Ductless air conditioners typically use less electricity than central air conditioners because they operate on their own power source. In fact, your utility bill for an entire month may decrease by as much as 50%, thanks to your new ductless cooling system.

Personalized Comfort

Another benefit of ductless air conditioners is that they allow you to set the temperature for individual rooms through remote controls. Traditional AC units use one central compressor and fan, meaning every room in your house must be set at a uniform temperature for it to work properly. 

With a ductless air conditioner, each room where a unit is installed can have its own thermostat and allow customized comfort around the clock. Plus, ductless mini-split systems also offer heating capabilities during the cooler months — you get the best of both worlds with this system!
