Benefits of a Ductless Air Conditioner

No one wants to be without air conditioning during the heat of the summer. But, regular central or window AC units can put a strain on your budget, harm the environment, and often just aren’t enough to effectively keep you cool.

Now, you are probably wondering if there is a solution to these issues, and luckily yes, there is. Ductless air conditioners can often solve these issues and more. So, let’s take a closer look at the ways a ductless air conditioner can help you.

1: Reduced Energy Cost

Keeping your home cool during the summer with regular air conditioning can cost you a lot of money. With utility costs rising every year, these bills are only becoming worse. However, with a ductless air conditioner, you can cool your home far more efficiently and reduce your energy bills by up to 30%. This can leave you a lot of money to spend on something a lot more enjoyable.

2: Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

As we just discussed, these units are far more energy-efficient, and this is great for saving some money, but it is also great for the environment. By placing units in the rooms you need them, you can only run the ones you need.

By turning off the units in the rooms you aren’t in, you can reduce the cost greatly over cooling your entire home. Plus, the components used in ductless air conditioner units are far more efficient than ordinary units.

3: Everyone Is Happy

Often times everyone in a family has their own temperature preferences. With central AC units, it can be nearly impossible to leave everyone happy. But, with ductless systems, every room can be set to a different temperature allowing everyone in the family to be comfortable.

4: Greater Control

In most homes, different rooms naturally possess different temperatures. With ordinary AC systems, there is only one temperature setting that does not adapt to these different conditions.

This can leave one room too hot and another frigid. But with a ductless AC, you can place systems in rooms that naturally become warm, allowing the temperature to be more effectively moderated.

5: Reduced Noise

Many AC units run very loudly, especially when they frequently turn on or off. This can easily keep you up at night and make focusing on work difficult. But, with a ductless AC unit, most of the work happens outside of your home where you don’t have to hear it. Oftentimes, the only way you know it is working is from the cool pleasant air.

6: Easy to Install

Regular central AC units often require weeks for a contractor to install in your home and require opening up the walls of your home to install ducting. Ductless air conditioners, on the other hand, are quick and easy to install in your home with very little modification. Typically, installing a ductless AC system takes less than a day.

7: Better Air Quality

Outside of an uncomfortable temperature, few things can affect the comfort of your home more than its air quality. Dust, pollen, and other particles can cause allergic reactions, long-term respiratory issues, and even spread colds and other illnesses.

Unfortunately, regular ducted systems often just spread these problems throughout your home instead of solving them. These systems require costly and time-intensive cleanings to prevent these issues. Whereas ductless systems contain effective filtration and are extremely easy to access and clean.

8: Heating

The same machinery used to solve your cooling system problems can also be used to heat your home. This offers the same advantages of energy efficiency and control to warming your home that it does to your cooling needs. Even once the weather cools down, you can continue saving on your energy bills.

Final Thoughts

Keeping your home cool can be one of the single largest expenses in your home. Regular systems are costly to run, environmentally unfriendly, and can cause numerous issues. Often times a ductless air conditioner can save you a lot of money and are better for your comfort and the environment.
