Do you use noisy window air conditioners or ineffective fans to cool your home in the summer because you don’t have a central air conditioning system installed? There may be a solution. Ductless cooling systems are an excellent air conditioning option for those without ductwork installed in the home. In general, when you choose to install a ductless system, a technician will install an outdoor unit and multiple indoor units in different zones throughout the house. These air handlers have the same cooling power as most ducted systems and are often more efficient. Ductless systems can also provide heat in the colder months.
If you’re not convinced that ductless cooling is the best solution for your Arvada home, we’ve put together this list of 3 benefits of ductless cooling.
The number one reason to install a ductless air conditioner in your home is that they don’t use any ducts at all. Ductwork installation can be a huge hassle and may be impossible in certain situations. The construction of many older homes makes ductwork installation difficult, and installing a ductless cooling system may cause less disruption for your home.
A lot of energy is lost in the ductwork of some ducted systems. Ducts often have leaks, causing cool air to escape into the attic or crawlspace of a home, which means the homeowner pays money to cool an unused area of the home. A ductless system eliminates this possibility, and ductless systems are often more efficient than leak-free ducted systems. The SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) of many ductless air conditioners is often higher than ducted systems, which means your energy bills may be much lower.
Each air handler of a ductless system is usually controlled by its own thermostat, which means the members of your household don’t have to argue about the temperature throughout the house. Separate blowers allow you to vary the temperature throughout the house for comfort, while saving money by adjusting the temperature in unoccupied rooms.
