Benefits of Having A Ductless AC System

Benefits of Having A Ductless AC System

Central air conditioning may be the go-to for many, but the surge in popularity of ductless AC systems is a trend worth noting. These systems give homeowners the power to regulate different climate conditions, a unique advantage. In this article, we’ve delved into compelling reasons why these systems are on the rise, including their top-quality HVAC services. Don’t hesitate to contact the professionals at the Otter Guys for all your installation and maintenance needs.

Ease Of Installation 

Ductwork is complex and expensive. But with a ductless AC system, you can remove all that time and money from the process while still ensuring a powerful and durable system to meet your home’s cooling needs. This cost-effective solution provides reassurance about your investment. 

Moreover, due to their simple design and lack of ductwork, these systems also typically require less maintenance than what you might expect from a central air system. And with easier installs and less maintenance required, that means more money in your pockets! 

Size And Placement

These systems are excellent space savers thanks to their sleek design and ability to take up minimal space. These systems are perfect for smaller homes, needing only a couple of feet of wall space and a hole drilled for cables and drain lines to pass through. 

Additionally, a ductless system allows the homeowner to decide which zones of the home they prefer to be cooled. This helps keep costs down and the right areas cool without wasting energy on whole-home cooling.

Minimal Noise 

Traditional systems such as central air and window units can be noisy, sometimes at the most inopportune times. Maybe you’re enjoying a nap, working from home, or simply sitting down to a good book or movie. All of a sudden, you hear the rattle and hum of your unit switching on. Nap’s over! 

The main components of a ductless system are mounted outside of your home, and air exits the side of the exterior unit as opposed to the top. This contributes to the added efficiency and noise reduction of ductless air cooling. 

Cost Efficient 

Generally speaking, ductless HVAC systems use less energy than central air conditioning units or ducted systems. For instance, standard ductless mini-split air conditioning systems consume up to 40% less energy than conventional window air conditioners. Selecting a ductless type will most likely result in lower utility bills and higher energy savings.

To further their cost-saving benefit, these types of systems require little maintenance and no ductwork (hence the name). That means you are not only saving on energy costs but also on the costs associated with installing all of the ductwork required for central air. 

Improved Air Quality 

Another important benefit is the improved indoor air quality that ductless air conditioning systems provide. Conventional ducted systems need to have their ductwork cleaned and maintained on a regular basis to avoid dust and debris buildup, which can lower air quality and cause or aggravate respiratory problems. Pollutants that can accumulate and grow within ducted systems include:

  • Allergens
  • Bacteria
  • Dust
  • Fungus
  • Microbes

On the other hand, ductless systems do not require air ducts, which lowers the possibility of pollutants entering your indoor space. You should trust an experienced and qualified technician to handle the installation to get the most out of your ductless air conditioning system. Ensuring optimal performance, lifespan, and energy efficiency of your mini-split system is achieved by having a well-executed and professional installation.
