Ductless air conditioning has been keeping consumers cool for decades. However, in recent years, ductless mini-split ACs have taken the world by storm. These systems are highly efficient and flexible. Whether you currently have central cooling or lack the ductwork for supporting it, ductless air conditioning could be the perfect choice for your Redmond, WA home. Read on to find out why.
A Ductless Air Conditioner Could Prove Cheaper Than Central AC
Both ductless heat pumps and ductless air conditioners are significantly more costly than central AC units. However, in homes that were built without HVAC ducting, installing these units could prove much cheaper than paying for ductwork retrofitting projects.
Many homes throughout Western Washington were built without central air conditioning. During times when summer weather was more temperate, those who owned older properties could get by with little more than ceiling fans and inefficient window ACs. Sadly, this is no longer the case.
If you own an older property that lacks the infrastructure for central air, paying for ductless AC is a great way to enhance the value and appeal of your home. It will also spare you the hassle and extra spending of having post-construction ductwork put in.
Service Remote Areas With Ductless Air Conditioning
Ductless air conditioning can also be beneficial in homes that already have central air. For instance, if you recently converted your basement into a home theater, a personal gym, or a rec room, you can install a ductless mini-split to keep this space cool and comfortable during the hottest months of the year.
Much like central cooling systems, ductless AC offers air filtration, humidity regulation, and temperature control.
Experience Superior Efficiency
Ductless ACs and heat pumps use heat transfer to cool building interiors. This method of cooling is highly efficient. Some ductless models boast efficiency levels as high as 300%. Best of all, ductless ACs come with multiple air handlers that each have their thermostats. Thus, each resident can set the temperature in their immediate area to their liking.
