If you are looking for a brand new air conditioning system to install in a brand new home, or if your existing property needs a new AC installed, then you may want to consider the use of a ductless air conditioning system. Ductless mini splits have long been very popular in commercial settings, but they have also made great strides in the residential sector recently. There are, quite simply, a few benefits that you’ll enjoy as a result of ductless cooling that you won’t find elsewhere. Read on to learn more about why you may opt for ductless air conditioning in Everett, WA.
They’re Great for Existing Properties
Ductless air conditioning systems, as the name suggests, do not use air ducts in order to distribute cooled air throughout one’s home. Instead, multiple wall-mounted blower units are installed throughout the house. These units connect directly to the outdoor unit via power and refrigerant lines. Heat is absorbed by the refrigerant in the system, and that thermal energy is vented outdoors, while the cooled air is simply redistributed into the area from which it originated. Because of this design, ductless systems really lend themselves to installation in existing properties that either cannot accommodate ductwork, or in those homes where the installation of ductwork is just deemed more of a hassle than it’s worth.
They Are Efficient and Versatile
When cooling one’s home with a ducted forced air cooling system, air leaks in the air ducts are a very real concern. Duct leaks are responsible for much inefficiency in countless homes throughout the country. When you eliminate the need for ductwork entirely, you also eliminate the risk of the inefficiency that such leaks lead to. Plus, ductless mini splits use heat pump technology, meaning that you can use existing heat in the air outside during the winter season in order to very efficiently warm your home, all while using the same system that cools your home in the summer.
