The Hidden Benefits of Ductless Air Conditioners

December 04, 2018

Did you know ductless air conditioners have a secret power? They also provide heat! If you’re tired of soaring energy bills and uneven temperatures, find out if ductless technology could be the solution you need for efficiency and comfort in your home.

Hot and cold spots with central air are common. These are due to furnace issues, poor insulation, or ineffectively defined climate zones. Generally, hot and cold spots occur when a thermometer reads the area around the main thermostat.

These small temperature variations can cause your thermostat to read inaccurately. With the steady drop in outdoor temperatures, homeowners with cold spots are right to be concerned.

Energy-Efficient Heating Plus Cooling

Before you decide to replace an entire furnace or heat pump, consider alternatives to drastic and expensive actions. You may be able to bring yourself the comfort and efficiency you desire, with an easier and more affordable solution.

Most people are unaware of all available options in air conditioning and heating systems. Ductless air conditioners are one of the easiest and most cost-effective fixes to target a specific room or area in your home.

If you choose to go the ductless route, you’ll enjoy optimal results when you work with a brand-certified contractor like Keith Air. Our technicians are factory-trained with AC equipment from industry leaders like Carrier.

Carrier’s ductless mini-split AC units are composed of an outdoor condenser unit and an indoor distribution unit. They operate within SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) units of 13-21. Keith Air also offers Carrier’s newer, more advanced Infinity models. These provide even higher operational capacities and additional features to boost efficiency such as variable-speed compressors.

Enjoy These Benefits with Ductless Air Conditioners

Cheaper electricity bills

Due to the setup and design of a ductless unit, it is far more energy-efficient than its central air counterpart. Save money when you only heat or cool as much air as you need.

Cleaner IAQ

With the emphasis on ‘ductless,’ these units provide cooling and heating circulation without the installation of ductwork. Ductless air conditioners are cleaner than traditional central air systems, without the need to clean ducts. Because ducts eventually accumulate dust and other airborne contaminants, less ductwork also helps to keep the indoor air quality of your home at a decent level.

Faster, easier installation

Installation of a ductless AC unit is quick and hassle-free, with no major construction required. This makes a ductless system an ideal choice for spaces where ductwork can’t be installed, or in additions where expansion of the existing ducts is not possible.

Improved specificity of the airflow control

Ductless air conditioners can fix hot spots as well as cold ones. They are designed to direct airflow to a specific, more concentrated area in your home. This means you can kiss those uneven temperatures goodbye!
