Ductless air conditioning is growing in popularity. Not only is this a budget-friendly way to cool your home, but these systems also double as heat pumps in the winter. We can install ductless air conditioning in your Shoreview home, and here are a few of advantages these types of systems can offer you and your home.
The biggest benefit that ductless air conditioning offers is its ability to be retrofitted into homes that do not have ducted heating systems. This is a much less expensive and time consuming alternative to having ductwork installed in your home, but you still get the same cooling ability as a central air conditioning system.
But unlike central air, instead of having to cool your entire home to the same temperature, ductless air conditioning allows for what is known as “zone cooling.” You can cool specific rooms in your home because each mini split has its own thermostat, and you can keep the mini splits turned off in other rooms. So if you have certain rooms in your home that you rarely use, you can turn off the mini splits in those rooms and save some money on your utility bills.
And because these systems do not have any ducts, you avoid the energy loss that is sometimes associated with the ductwork of central air conditioning systems. When you have a central air conditioning system, the energy losses through the ductwork can account for more than 30% of the energy consumption.
Ductless air conditioning also can blend into the decor of your home. The units can be hung from the wall, concealed, hung from the ceiling, mounted flush into a dropped ceiling or placed on the floor. They are also quiet when they are turned on and running; the outdoor unit does make some noise, but because they are outside, you will not hear them indoors.
Don’t let the name fool you: these systems aren’t just for cooling your home either! They also double as heat pumps during the winter months. So you can enhance your home’s heating system too when the cold winter months hit. These ductless systems could replace your fireplace or other supplementary heating system that you currently use.
These are just a few reasons you should consider ductless air conditioning!
