Have you heard about ductless air conditioners? If you’re trying to figure out whether it’s time to put the power of ductless air conditioning to work in your home, here’s what you need to know.
Unmatched Energy Efficiency
Ductless systems are incredibly efficient, reaching a seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER)of 30 or higher. In part, this is because ductless systems sidestep the need for a duct system and deliver their cooling power directly to your living spaces. Remember, the average central air conditioner loses nearly a third of its cooling power to leaks in the ducts.
Better Comfort with Ductless AC
A standard air conditioner cycles on and off periodically throughout the day. That’s because the compressor can only run at one or two speeds, so it tends to overshoot the target temperature and then shuts down until your home warms back up, and then turns back on. Ductless systems use variable-speed compressors to precisely match your cooling needs in real-time, slowing down and speeding up when needed to match the call of the thermostat. This not only further improves energy efficiency but also eliminates those uncomfortable temperature changes.
Quiet & Compact Cooling
Ductless systems use some of the most space-efficient technology the HVAC industry has to offer. The indoor components of a ductless system are quite small and sit high up on an interior wall, out of sight. Moreover, ductless air conditioning is almost silent, and because your unit will run at a lower speed for continuous, steady temperatures, what little noise it makes will fade into the background right away.
Because of these advantages, ductless systems are great for small homes, apartments, additions to homes, condominiums and any other setting where space is at a premium, older homes without a duct system, and any home or business owner who is serious about saving energy throughout the summer.
