What exactly is ductless air conditioning?

Ductless air conditioning offers many benefits.  Learn more about what it is and where you could implement it.

A ductless air conditioning system is increasing in popularity because of its size, function and flexible application. Learn more about ductless air conditioning systems below to see if this system might be an option for your home.

What Is Ductless Air Conditioning

To begin, a ductless air conditioner is a premium unit that does not sit in your window or plug into a wall outlet. The system is hung on the wall but is wired just like a central air conditioning system. It can easily be placed in the home without the need for ductwork. This cuts down on your installation cost as there is no need to install bulky ductwork.

Benefits of a Ductless System

There are many benefits to using a ductless air conditioning system.  You will use less energy to cool the home, potentially lowering your monthly utility bill. This method of cooling the home is good for those who want to stick to a budget and still enjoy a comfortable home. Another benefit of a ductless air conditioning system is that it works well as a cooling source for homes that have a boiler system (meaning there is no existing ductwork in the home). Not only can a ductless system provide cooling comfort, but most units today can also provide secondary heating in the winter, if necessary.

Perhaps you are adding additional space to the home or have an area that won’t heat or cool the way you want. Consider installing a ductless system into the new space or instead of paying to replace or improve existing ductwork (or having to upgrade your equipment). The cost would likely be lower and you would be able to enjoy the same great cooling comfort in these areas in your home.
