The whole process of installing a new air conditioner in your home is a tedious and long one — if you choose that path. With the summers getting hotter, an AC unit is an absolute essential to survive the scorching heat. Are you willing to give a ductless air conditioner a chance? Here is a list of reasons why you should choose a ductless air conditioner:
Lower Installation Cost
If you have been checking out AC prices, you have probably noticed that ductless units cost more than conventional central AC systems. However, a central AC requires proper ductwork inside your home. Repairing or adding ductwork in your space may cost a lot since it involves hiring someone to build it.
Good Addition for New Homes
A new home will most likely be just out of construction, so why would you want to tear down part of the walls just to add a central AC unit? A ductless system will allow you to experience the same performance without having to go through the whole process of installing air ducts.
For homes with inefficient air ducts, AC contractors can simply patch them up and install a ductless AC, which should not cost you extra.
Installation is Fast
Creating or repairing ductwork systems in a home usually takes a few weeks. You can skip this step if you choose a ductless AC since installers will only have to drill a small hole for the outdoor conduit part of the AC. Through that hole, they thread all the external parts outside while maintaining a clean look. This will only last one to two days, saving you both time and money for the labor.
Effective Energy Saving
Central AC units will require a lot of energy to “pump” air to rooms. Ductless ACs, on the other hand, are equipped with fans called “variable-speed air handlers,” which automatically change their speed depending on the conditions. Since they are focused on maintaining a certain temperature, they save energy by automatically working harder if the temperature gets too hot.
Better Indoor Air Quality
Dust, pollen, bacteria, and other contaminants have no place to accumulate in a ductless system. Furthermore, ductless AC units also use a filter system, which can get rid of any other pollutants that may find their way into the unit.
Cheaper Maintenance Costs
With a traditional central AC unit, apart from the annual checkup, you will also have your ductwork inspected and repaired regularly. Since ductless ACs do not have any other parts aside from the unit itself, you will not have to spend extra money to reseal leaks, clean the ductwork, or add insulation.
Even then, you should still have your ductless AC checked annually by a professional and replace the air filters once every three months. Remember to keep grass clippings and other debris away from the outdoor unit, too. That way, you will be able to keep your AC running efficiently and it will last a long time.
Ductless ACs may have a higher upfront cost. In the long run, however, these appliances work with you to save money and energy while staying on 24/7 to maintain a comfortable temperature in your space. If these benefits meet your needs, then you should consider investing in a ductless air conditioner.
