If you’re looking for ways to keep your home cool, but you have limited space, then a ductless mini-split air conditioning or AC system is the answer. These systems have come a long way since their introduction in the 1970s. They have evolved into a cost-effective alternative to keep your home cool. Let’s discuss five reasons to install a ductless mini-split AC system.
Ductless mini-split AC systems are great if you need to save space because of their compact design. The system can be mounted or recessed to fit any space and blend into any room. Although ductless mini-split AC systems are compact, they still evenly distribute cool air throughout the home. Also, they can easily be installed in typical areas that lack an AC unit such as the garage or attic.
Ductless mini-split AC systems are super cost-effective because they are less expensive to operate and install. For example, if you live in a home that doesn’t have ductwork, then this system will save you a lot of money. It will easily eliminate the need for wall remodeling, painting, and fixture replacement.
Also, ductless mini-split AC systems provide zonal cooling, so they cool only the rooms that are occupied. This system also decreases air leaks that you find sometimes in ducts from other HVAC systems.
Convenient and Safe
When you compare the ductless mini-split AC system to a window unit, the ductless system is more convenient because they work all year round. Unlike window units, the ductless system provides heat and doesn’t have to be removed during the winter months.
Also, ductless systems are safe, especially when compared to window units. Burglars can’t just remove the ductless system and enter your home like they can with a window unit.
Ductless mini-split AC systems also eliminate the need to have dangerous cords running up and down your wall which is especially important if you have children or pets. And finally, they eliminate the chances of falling out of the window and causing serious injuries.
Installing a ductless mini-split AC system is easy, but it’s not a recommended DIY. A qualified professional can decide the best place to install the inside and outside unit. Then all they have to do to is simply drill a 3-inch hole into the wall. A qualified heating, ventilation, and air conditioning or HVAC technician can help you with all your service needs.
If you live in a historic house, and you’re concerned about the architectural value of your home, then this system is your answer.
We all know that AC window units can be noisy. This can make entertaining hard especially if you are trying to hold a conversation. Ductless systems are designed to run quietly, which gives you more flexibility with placement options and promotes peace. Both the indoor and outdoor units are designed to make minimal noise, so your neighbors will thank you.
If you’re looking for a minimally invasive way to keep your home cool and greater control over your homes cooling that saves you money, a ductless mini-split AC system might be your answer.
