10 Reasons To Buy A Ductless Air Conditioner

During the summer months, air conditioning becomes a vital part of comfort in our everyday life; yet, your older air conditioner could be costing you more than it should. Out-of-date AC units can be inefficient and cost you additional money in higher utility bills. Now is the perfect time to upgrade your home’s AC system to one of the best options out there: a ductless air conditioner. There are more than a few benefits to upgrading to ductless air conditioning. Here are the top 10 reasons to purchase one:

1. Saves You Money on Utility Bills

One of the most common reasons people switch to ductless air conditioners is to help them save on their energy bills. Due to rising utility costs, using an effective system for preventing overcompensation of electricity is vital to avoid being in debt with your power company. Ductless air conditioners operate on less power, meaning you will be spending less and less each month you use it. Multi-split ductless AC systems even let homeowners create individual sections of their home that are either heated or cooled.

Saving on utilities is only the start: those who buy a ductless air conditioner can save on utility rebates or tax credits the year they have it installed; furthermore, there are several local, state, and federal programs out there that help businesses or homeowners benefit from these savings.

2. Ductless Air Conditioners are Easy to Install

Installing an ordinary ducted air conditioning system can take considerably longer to install and cause delays of usual activities at home or at work; fortunately, ductless air condition systems can be installed within a single day. Installation requires little demolition or intrusion, so you will not need to put your life on hold to get a new AC system; besides, if you opted for a multi-split system, you don’t have to pay to rebuild ceilings or walls around the ductwork.

3. Helps Lower Your Carbon Footprint

Since ductless air conditioners are smaller and use less energy, they can help lower your carbon footprint in the surrounding environment. They also follow ENERGY STAR® requirements, which is to say that they are more energy-efficient and follow guidelines set by the United States government.

Ductless systems also use a refrigerant called R410A, which provides zero harm to the ozone—yes, that’s right: it has a positive impact on the environment. Isn’t that great?

4. You Get More Cooling Options

When choosing to go with a ductless air conditioning system, you have control of where you want to put it in your home and how many units you want installed. This will give you ‘zoned temperature control’ for your home, which can help you save money and keep your family happy. Keep the room that you are in cool without worrying about the air escaping to unoccupied rooms.

5. Ductless ACs Provide Versatility

Say hello to year-round savings because with a ductless AC, you have both energy-efficient heating and cooling. That’s right, the same machine can be used to both heat and cool your home. One great example of this appliance is the Carrier® A/C units for ductless A/C systems. These useful units completely eliminate the need for outdated and sometimes dangerous gas and steam heating.

6. Ductless Air Conditioners Improve Indoor Air Quality

Unsurprisingly, poor-quality air conditioners can lower the indoor air quality. With HVAC systems, the air ducts must be cleaned constantly, since dust and allergens can build up. Ductless systems, in contrast, have built-in filtration that can remove harmful pollen, allergens, and dust to improve the quality of indoor air.

7. Ductless Air Conditioners Are Compact

A ductless air conditioner system is usually smaller than normal cooling systems thereby taking up less space in your home or work; to add, they only need to be mounted along with a power source nearby to work. Once they’re fully installed, you might even forget they’re there!

8. Safer Than Traditional Window AC Units

Ductless air conditioners can offer a lot more security than window air conditioners. You will not need to worry about the unit falling out of your window, leaving you frustrated, angry, sweaty, and exposed to threats; moreover, you’ll needn’t be concerned about criminals stealing the window unit right out of your home. Ductless air conditioning is much safer.

9. Make the Whole Family Happy

If you have an average family, you will each likely have a different ideal temperature for the home. Everybody has their own preference for how hot or cold they think it should be. One person in your home may be perfectly comfortable while another is sweating. This is not an easy problem to fix with an ordinary air conditioner, as it cools down your house to one set temperature. With a ductless air conditioner, you can set a different temperature for each room. Every family member can choose how hot or cold they want their room to be. This can potentially stave off any disagreements that may result from your family’s discomfort.

10. Quiet Operation

Many of the heating and cooling options available to you can be noisy. These loud units can be annoying and distracting, preventing you from relaxing or focusing on working at home. They may also keep you up at night, waking you up frequently every time they turn on or off. Since almost all the parts of a ductless AC is outside, most of the operation and the noises that come with it happen outdoors as well. This means you will not need to listen to it when you are trying to work or sleep; in fact, these air conditioners are often so quiet, you won’t even know it is on until your home is cool.

Ductless air conditioning systems are better for your home and office spaces because of their efficient, customizable, and environmentally friendly features. Hopefully, this article could help shine a better light on ductless systems and inspire you to have them installed to replace your home’s older air conditioning system. Going ductless is really the way to go.
