5 Reasons Why You Should Consider Ductless This Spring

Happy relaxed woman holding AC remote controlOnce spring arrives on Long Island, people start to think about ways to improve their homes. For people with bonus rooms and converted spaces in their primary residence, or for those with summer homes, cooling those areas is a priority. However, those areas may not have ductwork, and in that instance, cooling may seem like a challenge.

Fortunately, there is a great solution for people with homes, or spaces in their homes, that don’t have ductwork – ductless cooling. In this article, we’ll discuss some situations where ductless may be the optimal choice, the benefits of ductless systems, and how T.F. O’Brien can help. Keep reading to learn more!

Is ductless right for my home?

Ductless systems offer cooling (and in many instances, heating) in spaces where ductwork is not practical or possible. If you have added to your home, converted unused areas like attics or garages into living spaces, or have a finished basement that does not have access to your home’s central heating and air conditioning system, ductless is an ideal choice.

It can also be useful in summer homes, where people often rely on window air conditioning for cooling. And, ductless can be a whole-home comfort solution, perfect for homes that use radiant heating, as most of these residences do not have a duct system to accommodate central air conditioning.

Top 5 Ductless Benefits

As we’ve discussed, ductless can be an ideal solution across a wide range of situations. Whether you need it for one space or as a whole-home solution, ductless provides numerous benefits beyond just keeping you comfortable. Ductless offers:

  1. Energy Efficiency: Most ductless systems use heat pump technology to operate, which is one of the most efficient methods of cooling and heating on the market. Ductless systems don’t burn fossil fuel, making them an environmentally sound choice as well.
  2. Easy Operation: Ductless systems are installed high on a wall or in the ceiling and are generally controlled using a remote control. They’re quiet, unobtrusive, and can easily be adjusted simply by pressing a button.
  3. Targeted Comfort: Ductless systems are installed as an individual unit in one room, or multiple units throughout your home. This allows you to enjoy the exact comfort you want, no matter what room you’re in.
  4. Year-Round Use: Many ductless systems offer both cooling and heating all in one unit. So, you won’t have to rely on window air conditioners in the summer and space heaters in the winter to stay comfortable. Ductless can do both, all in one convenient unit.
  5. No-Mess Installation: Installing ductwork in a space can mean extensive remodeling, which is both costly and inconvenient. Ductless systems are virtually mess-free, as they only require the installation technician to drill a small hole that connects the indoor and outdoor units.
