Are you considering ductless air conditioning for your home? Maybe something along the lines of a ductless mini-split air conditioner?
If that’s the case, here are a few things you should know:
1. You’ll get a flexible cooling method
Traditional central air forces cooled air through ducts, a ductless system brings air directly into different zones of your home. These systems are made up of a small outdoor unit and a at least one indoor unit.
You might see them referred to as split-systems or multi-split systems. Whatever their name, this cooling method gives home owners a cost-effective way to replace outdated window units.
2. You’ll save money
A major factor driving homeowners to invest in a ductless mini-split air conditioner is the savings involved. An inefficient cooling system can quickly drive up your monthly energy costs.
A ductless system uses less power than a forced-air system and delivers cooled air with more efficiency. And because a multi-split system lets you create zones around your home, you won’t need to cool rooms that you aren’t using.
Aside from the savings you’ll get from a lower energy bill, you may also be eligible for a tax credit or utility rebate for the year in which you install your ductless system.
3. Your home will have better air quality
Standard HVAC systems require regular, professional cleaning to remove dust and allergens. And even after a cleaning, those particulates can stick around.
Ductless systems come with multi-stage filtration that dramatically reduces the level of dust, pollen, bacteria and allergens in the air.
4. Quick Installation
Installing a traditional, ducted air conditioning system can take time. A ductless system is much less invasive, and can be installed in as little as one day, depending on the number of indoor and outdoor units required. And while a traditional system involves contractors tearing through your walls, a ductless system only requires a small hole to run refrigerant piping.
5. You’ll reduce your carbon footprint
Ductless cooling systems adhere to Energy Star guidelines, which means they offer much greater energy efficiency than the minimum federal standard. This not only saves you money, it also reduces your home’s total carbon output.
In addition, ductless systems use a refrigerant known as R410A, known for its zero-ozone depletion potential, meaning your system will have less of an impact on the environment.
