Most people are familiar with bulky, window air conditioning units. But did you know there’s another kind of ductless air conditioner available? And did you also know it’s cheaper to install and has a lower operating cost than its ducted counterpart?
Read on to learn more!
What Is a Ductless Air Conditioner
Ductless air conditioners are pretty much exactly as described. They don’t plug into the existing home’s ductwork. Instead, they vent to the outside through a wall, ceiling, or window insert.
When Should I Choose a Ductless Air Conditioner?
There are a variety of situations in which zonal units will be your best choice for heating and cooling. Here are a few of the most common reasons our customers decided to take the plunge:
• Older homes where the installation of ductwork is incredibly expensive
• Outdoor shed, office or other enclosed workspace lacking access to the primary heating and cooling system
• Existing system is undersized
• New additions didn’t tap into existing ductwork
And the list goes on and on. There's no need to tolerate a sweltering attic conversion; simply install a self-contained ductless system and you're ready to go.
Additional Reasons to Go Ductless
One of the most cited reasons our customers opt for an independent zonal solution is the cost. Adding ductwork to existing construction is expensive and even adding on to existing ducts can require total system replacement. Ductless solutions are cheaper to buy and economical to operate. After all, you only need to turn it on when you’re actually in the space.
