Air Conditioning Question: Why Install a Ductless Air Conditioner?

If you are in the market for a new AC system, ductless air conditioners are a great option.  The benefits of ductless air conditioning systems are many, and the AC experts at Tuckers Air Conditioning & Heating want to help you understand these benefits.

Benefits of Ductless Air Conditioning Systems

Ductless air conditioners offer flexible zoning options, high energy efficiency, a variety of design options, and reduced operating noise.

Easy zoning capability allows you to individually maintain temperatures in zones throughout a building. The outdoor compressor unit connects to multiple indoor air handling units.  Each of the indoor units can be placed in different sections or rooms of a building, allowing for each specific zone to have its own unique temperature settings.

By utilizing a zone control system, ductless air conditioners can make your cooling practices more energy efficient.  Run the air conditioning only in rooms which are in use, rather than cooling an entire building in which only one or two rooms may be occupied.  Unnecessary cooling of unused spaces accounts for a lot of energy waste, and by eliminating this you can save not only energy but money as well.  Without the use of duct systems, which can be quite inefficient if they are not maintained, you eliminate the heat loss associated with them and can save even more energy.

Indoor air handling units on ductless air conditioning systems can be installed in a variety of places and this can make them easier to incorporate into any given room’s design.  They can use inconspicuous covers or be mounted flush to the ceiling or wall to avoid being an eyesore.

The noisiest components of a ductless AC system are kept outside, and there is no air being forced through ductwork.  This means that the indoor units are quieter, using a nearly silent evaporator and fan to blow the cooled air, and thus offering a cooled space without the noise associated with other types of air conditioners.

Ductless systems not only cool the air, they can heat it as well.  This means that with the installation of one single system, you are able to enjoy year-round indoor comfort.  You don’t have to worry about installing an additional heating system.
