Is Ductless Air Conditioning Worth Considering?

ductless-system-remoteYes, absolutely. If you think that we are talking about inefficient, inconvenient window units when we say “ductless air conditioning” … well, we aren’t. Ductless air conditioning systems are still centralized ACs, offering a whole house cooling solution. They just do so without the need for using air ducts. This unique design actually allows for a number of different benefits. When we install and service your ductless air conditioner in Summerville, GA, you’ll be able to enjoy them all.

Like any other whole-house air conditioner, a ductless mini split is going to demand a professional installation, maintenance, and, when necessary, repairs. Don’t entrust your ductless AC services to contractors unfamiliar with the ins and outs of these systems. Work with our team, and live in the comfort that you know you.

Ductless Air Conditioning–and Heating!

Before we get any further into the way in which a ductless mini split system works, we should address the way in which a heat pump works. While there are ductless systems available that only offer cooling, most homeowners tend to gravitate toward the ductless heat pump. When you use a ductless heat pump, you will be able to not only cool your home effectively but also heat your home with outstanding energy efficiency. This is thanks to the fact that heat pumps transfer heat from one place to another, rather than generating it.

When in cooling mode, your system will use the refrigerant cycle in order to absorb heat from the air in the house, and then to vent the heat into the air outside. Heat pumps are able to reverse this operation, though, meaning that they can use refrigerant and its evaporation in order to draw heat out of the air outside as well. In doing so, they can use that heat in order to warm the air in your living space. This is ideal for our relatively mild winter season, and is as convenient as it is efficient.

Simple Zone Control Boosts Efficiency Further

Okay, but how does the system itself work without ducts? Rather than the use of air ducts, a ductless system just uses wall-mounted blowers to condition the air in the areas in which each blower is located. The blowers act as independent air handlers, connecting to the outdoor unit with a simple conduit containing power, refrigerant, and any necessary drainage lines. They are controlled independently of one another with their own thermostats.

Because you can control each blower independently of the others, it opens up your options in terms of how you choose to heat and cool your home. For instance, you can easily turn down the heat in the kitchen area when making dinner without everyone in the house suffering on a chilly night. This is a great way to cut down on energy costs, while actually living more comfortably! Sounds like a pretty good deal to us, and to the countless homeowners already taking advantage of this technology.
