Is Ductless Air Conditioning Right for Your Home?

If you’ve ever had an argument over your thermostat settings or gotten frustrated when one room of your home refuses to get cool, you’re not alone. Traditional central air conditioning systems don’t permit customizations — they fail to accommodate renovations and are expensive to repair. That’s why more and more homeowners are upgrading to ductless mini-split systems.

What Are Ductless Air Conditioning Systems?

Central air conditioning systems rely on metallic air ducts inserted into the walls and ceilings of a home. The AC unit or furnace sends warm or cool air through these ducts, which vent out into different rooms of your home. Ductless systems, on the other hand, use indoor air handlers to separately heat or cool every room. These handlers are connected to an outdoor compressor unit through conduits that eliminate the need for traditional air ducts.

Ductless systems go by many names, such as split systems, mini-splits, and multi-splits. No matter what name you choose, these systems serve the same purpose: to effectively cool your home in an affordable, energy-efficient way.

Why Should I Install a Ductless Air Conditioning System?

If you’re wondering whether or not a ductless system is right for you, consider some of the benefits of mini-splits. These include:

  • Temperature zone customization
  • High energy-efficiency
  • Easy installation
  • Cost-effective to install/repair

Mini-split systems provide for zone control, allowing you to decide which rooms to heat and cool while preserving energy. They’re also easy to install, particularly for older homes that don’t have integrated ductwork. Finally, mini-split systems let maintenance workers effortlessly execute repairs without reworking the entire system, making them cost-effective in the long run.

Once you’ve decided that you want to enjoy the benefits of a ductless air conditioning system, the next step is to contact a contractor to handle the installation. It’s important that you select a high-quality, reliable company that can guarantee a job well done.
