If you have a room struggling to stay cool during the hot summer months of Mobile or if you are just plain tired of dealing with uneven temperatures throughout your home, ductless air conditioning may be the perfect solution to your problem. If your HVAC systems simply can’t keep temperatures even throughout your home, there are a few solutions Keith Air can suggest. One of the “coolest,” however is ductless air conditioning, also known as mini-split air conditioners.
Read on to learn more about the benefits of ductless air conditioning technology:
What is ductless air conditioning? Simply put, ductless air conditioning is an air conditioning system without ductwork. A ductless air conditioner typically includes a wall-mounted unit inside the home connected to an outside compressor. Unlike window units, ductless units require only a very small 3-inch hole to be drilled into the wall, making them less vulnerable to air leakage and security concerns.
Ductless cooling systems are excellent options when you have certain areas or zones of your home without enough air from your main HVAC system. Many times, basements, sunrooms, attics or room extensions will experience a lack climate control because the current ductwork just doesn’t reach the particular area effectively.
The many pros of ductless air conditioning: Ductless cooling is extremely customizable, making it right for nearly any space configuration. It is also energy efficient, typically unnoticeable, easy to install as well as quiet. For this reason, ductless air conditioning is often the perfect solution for homeowners who experience discomfort due to hot spots or uneven temperatures inside their living spaces. In many instances, these systems also help control humidity and reduce recirculation of pollutants improving indoor air quality. Finally, ductless units are also a heating unit, allowing you to “knock the chill” off a space on the occasional winter morning.
A few cons to note about ductless air conditioning: Although ductless air conditioning is a very popular option, a few notable cons exist to using this technology. It can be expensive compared to old-fashioned noisy wall units), although savings are gained through energy efficiency, in fact, many units boast the Energy Star label. They are, of course, less expensive than running new ductwork to a central air unit.
Also, some homeowners prefer not to have any visibility of their air conditioning system, even though the units are typically flush to the wall and unobtrusive. In fact, many homeowners who were unsure, later report they totally forget about its visual presence once it’s installed.
