The Benefits of Ductless Air Conditioning
Ductless air conditioning systems can be the perfect answer for that room that’s never quite cool enough, or for that new addition you’re building. The ductless system works, obviously, with no ducts, as a traditional AC unit uses to carry air to vents. Instead, this system has an outdoor compressor unit located against the building. This makes it highly adaptable to many rooms and needs.
The inside unit is typically mounted on a wall of the room where the cooling is needed. A small hole is cut to the outside where the lines providing electricity, drainage, and refrigerant can come from the outdoor unit.
The ductless AC only provides the air conditioning, so a heater is still needed. You could still use your traditional furnace with ducts, or you could install a ductless unit that’s a combination AC and heater (adding a heat pump). This is the best option for a room that’s never quite cool or warm enough, no matter much you change the thermostat.
Many homes are adding “zones” throughout the entire house. If you have these multiple zones in your home, you can control the temperature on a per-room basis.
While ductless AC systems require little maintenance, the installation definitely requires a professional. The certified technicians at West Mechanical have the expertise required and would be happy to answer any questions that you have.
You can also talk to West Mechanical about the health benefits to installing a ductless AC. Without needing ductwork, the health concerns about what could be growing or blowing through your home via the ducts is eliminated.
If you’re constantly reaching for that glass of ice tea to help cool you down in one for more of your rooms, definitely take a look at a ductless AC. It could answer more than one need for you.
