5 Benefits of Ductless Air Conditioning

Ductless systems have become a popular way to cool spaces or entire homes, that do not have ductwork. Homes that have radiant heating systems often were not built with ductwork, nor with the wall space to add it. In the past, people who owned these types of homes were limited when it came to cooling options. Ductless systems offer a much better cooling option over window air conditioning, and here are a few reasons why:

  1. Ductless AC is highly efficient. Because ductless systems often use heat pump technology, they provide one of the most efficient cooling options, with many ductless systems using up to 40 percent less energy than a typical window unit. And that means savings on your utility bills!
  2. Ductless systems are non-intrusive. Anyone who has used window air conditioners knows that they tend to be noisy and obstruct the view. That can be a huge drawback in some situations, like if you have a summer home overlooking the ocean! Ductless systems are installed high on the wall or in the ceiling, keeping them out of your immediate living space.
  3. Installation is permanent and usually can be completed quickly. Unlike a window unit that you must remove and store over the winter, a ductless system is a permanent installation in your home. Renovation is minimal; generally, only a small hole is required to connect the indoor and outdoor unit components.
  4. Ductless air conditioning is quiet. As mentioned above, most people find that ductless systems are whisper-quiet, unlike most window units. This means you can use them in spaces like bedrooms, theatre rooms, and home offices – and you won’t have to worry about noisy, disruptive system operation.
  5. You can even get year-round comfort. That’s right! Ductless systems often can provide heating in cooler weather, too, making them especially beneficial in areas where you might have had to rely on space heaters, which can take up floor space and can cause a fire hazard. And, because they use the same heat pump technology to keep your home warm, you can count on efficient heating as well.
