Ductless air conditioning systems are becoming more and more popular with homeowners. This is because there are numerous benefits to selecting this type of system, including efficiency and cost benefits. Most homes have systems in place to help keep a home cool. According to the United States Census Bureau and the American Housing Survey, 72 million homes in the United States, or 65% of homes in total, have central air conditioning, while 22% of homes have room or window cooling units. If you’re looking for a new cooling system for your home, here’s everything you need to know about ductless AC systems.
What Is a Ductless AC System?
A ductless AC system is exactly what it sounds like. It’s a home cooling system that doesn’t involve the use of ductwork. Traditionally, one large air conditioning unit produces cool air, and then that air is dispersed into the home through a series of ducts and vents. With a ductless system, smaller AC units are placed in different parts of the home, with each unit responsible for cooling a portion, or zone, of the home.
What Are the Benefits of This Type of System?
With a ductless system, you can control what parts of your home are cooled and when. If no one uses certain parts of the home, you don’t need to pay to cool those parts of the home. You can also make certain parts of the home cooler or warmer, helping with individual comfort. All of this helps to make cooling your home more energy efficient while giving you more control over your cooling system.
Who Should Install a Ductless AC System?
Ductless systems still need to be installed by a professional. A professional can set up a home system and help you properly place the units to maximize their efficiency.
It’s important to keep your home cool. People sleep better in a cooler home, a cooler home helps you to stay comfortable, and a cool home can help to keep small children, the elderly, and pets from overheating on hot days. While you have different options for cooling your home, a ductless AC system may be ideal, especially if you don’t already have ducts in place for a traditional system.
