Why Consider Ductless Cooling?
Ductless cooling offers some benefits you may not get with other types of air conditioners:
1. No ductwork needed
It’s silly, but yes we have to state the obvious- this type of air conditioning system does not need ducts to work!
2. Built-in zone control
Each individual blower is programmable and controlled by its own thermostat. The blowers operate per space/room, the placement of the blower and its ability to be programmed means you automatically have zone control cooling throughout your home. This gives you control over comfort levels, temperature and the ability to turn a blower on or off as needed.
3. Heating Provided
Some ductless systems provide heating without any additions needed for the system. Make sure you discuss this with one of our experts if your goal is to have heating provided in your home with the same system.
With the automatic zone control, you have the ability to cool a space/room at the temperature you want and when you want it. You can do this without impacting other parts of your home. If there are areas of your home that are unoccupied, you can turn the air conditioning off completely, saving you from paying for cooling you aren’t using.
Greater energy efficiency
Ducts are one of the main reasons for leaking air which contributes to the rise in your energy bills. “In the average house, you’re losing 25 percent or more of your energy to ductwork,” says James Bowman, National Technical Manager for RectorSeal and a 20+ year veteran of the HVAC industry. “Simply by removing the ducts, you end up with a more efficient system. Ductless models also have inverter-driven compressors, which speed up and slow down based on the needs of the system instead of shutting off entirely like traditional HVAC compressors do. You consume a lot of energy during compressor start-up.”
