Should You Try Ductless Air Conditioning?

As you face another hot summer, your air conditioning's weaknesses may be looming large in your mind. Even if you have a good traditional HVAC system in place, you can benefit from adding ductless air conditioning to your home. If your system needs a boost or a replacement, take a look at this alternative air conditioning type.

Ductless Basics

If you need a new air conditioning system, you can decide to go with ductless units throughout your house. These units are excellent additions to rooms with inadequate cooling or building additions without links to your current system. They also take little work to install. Even the more complicated systems only require the installation of small pipes. Usually, your new ductless air system will be ready to use in a day.

Air Quality

The ductwork in your home can really compromise your interior air quality, especially if you do not have it cleaned regularly. Mold, mildew and dust can collect in the ducts and be spread throughout your home when the cooling unit is running. As a result, your family can suffer from allergies and an increase in other respiratory conditions. Ductless air conditioning limits this type of exposure. If you or your family suffer from these health issues, changing to ductless AC can be a sensible decision.

Energy Savings and Flexibility

Because ductless air conditioning allows you to create temperature "zones" in your home, you should experience a significant reduction in energy bills. You can keep the temperature in your "hot room" comfortable without lowering it in the rooms that are easier to cool. Also, if you have a family member who is always hot or cold, these units allow them to set a temperature that they can accept without causing everyone else in your home to be miserable. Experts estimate that you can decrease your energy bill by 20 to 30 percent each month, allowing you to keep a large chunk of change in your wallet where it belongs. The ductless AC gives you a level of flexibility and energy efficiency that you've never had before. 

If your HVAC needs an upgrade  you should consult your local contractor about installing ductless units. By making this change, you can improve the quality of air in your home while saving money. You also give yourself increased flexibility, so you can create temperature zones that work for each member of your family. If you haven't been happy with your current system, ductless units may be your answer.
