Ductless AC systems are nothing new. In fact, Japan has been using this technology for 50 years. Since Mitsubishi began testing ductless products in the US in the early 2000s, the popularity of the systems has only grown. With a ductless AC system, a small outdoor condenser unit supplies power. A hose-like line connects the condenser with an air handler hung on the wall inside the home. Here are two reasons you may want to consider installing a ductless AC:
- Improved Cooling
- If comfort is a priority, ductless ACs may be the way to go. With a traditional HVAC system, certain areas of the home may prove inaccessible because they were designed without ductwork. With the mini-split ductless system, you can heat and cool a variety of spaces more effectively. Additionally, heat pumps are more durable than other systems, meaning they will last longer and require fewer repairs.
- Greater Energy Efficiency
- Ductless systems are also good for slashing utility bills. Because air isn’t being lost to cracks in the ducts, your overall energy efficiency is improved by an impressive 30 percent, with even greater savings in basements and attics. You can save on your monthly utility costs without sacrificing your family’s comfort throughout the year.
