New Models Are Quiet, Efficient and Easy to Control
Ductless Air Conditioning – A Quick Review
If you don’t know, ductless air conditioning is exactly what it sounds like – an air conditioner not connected to your home’s ductwork. They are similar to window AC units, except ductless air conditioning is quieter and can be installed virtually anywhere – even in a windowless room!
Installation is relatively quick – it only requires a three-inch hole in the wall to connect the indoor and outdoor components. Up to eight indoor units can be connected to a single outdoor component. The ductless unit is controlled with a remote control and is more energy efficient than the old window units. Some are even Energy Star-rated and can save up to 30 percent compared to traditional air conditioning systems.
As a bonus, most ductless units are capable of heating too, which is great on chilly winter mornings. Use the ductless unit to push a little warmth into your room, especially on cloudy days when the southern sun isn’t cooperating.
If you have air quality concerns, breathe easy! As long as the filter is changed or cleaned regularly, ductless units are great for your indoor air quality. Regular ductwork may not get everything while circulating odors like cigar smoke or contaminants like pet dander, dust, pollen and other debris. No ducts equals no circulation!
Why Ductless Air Conditioning is Great for New Construction
Most popular in densely populated areas of the world, ductless air conditioning easily goes where square footage or older architecture prohibits traditional central heating and air systems. Sometimes a full-fledged heating and air system is unnecessary.
You don’t have to be a fan of “Tiny House” living to appreciate a space of your own. Many people opt to use ductless air conditioning when finishing a space like a garage apartment or turning a screened-in porch into an addition. Some have chosen to create a “man cave” or “she shed” apart from the main house and install ductless air conditioning to take care of solo heating and cooling needs.
Ductless air conditioning can fit almost anywhere, does not depend on ductwork or have to work around architecture constraints. Because the installation impact on the structure is so minimal, ductless air conditioning is more secure for cabins on the lake and pool houses.
If you live in an area with high fuel costs, you may benefit from installing ductless air conditioning in specific rooms of a new construction home or addition. If you choose to condition the air in your two to three most used rooms, for example, it may be one way to control the expense of building and long-term budget planning.
