Why Ductless Air Conditioning May Be Right For You
Hot weather is coming! If you’re feeling the heat, you might also be feeling the pressure if you don’t have an air-conditioning system in place. But choosing a system isn’t always easy. You may have a home that’s not big enough for a central air conditioning system. But your living space might be too big to be cooled by just a wall unit. If you’re looking for alternatives to these types of air conditioning systems, you should look into installing a ductless air condition system like those available through Tragar Home Services. We’d like you to know why Ductless Air Conditioning may be right for you.
Advantages of Ductless Air Conditioning
A ductless air conditioning system has many advantages, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. They are small in size and easy to install. They also give homeowners flexibility because ductless air conditioning systems can heat or cool individual rooms and zones in your home separately. You only have to cool the room you’re in, which will cut the costs of your electricity bill. Just how efficient is ductless air conditioning though? Ductless air conditioning systems can be more energy efficient than central air conditioning because central air ducts can account for more than 30 percent of its energy consumption.
Another benefit to ductless air conditioning is the convenience of installation. Unlike window units, you don’t have to lose window space to cool your home. You can install ductless units on a wall, over a window or even on the ceiling. You don’t have to worry about a bulky window unit taking the natural light out of your room.
Ductless air installation is also a lot simpler than other cooling systems. That’s because there’s less intrusion into the interior or exterior of your home. The installation is often completed in just a day.
Ductless Air Conditioning Gets Rid of Humidity
If you choose to install a ductless air conditioning system in your home, you can cut down on the humidity inside your home. That’s because these systems don’t just blow cold air like a window unit. The condensers on a ductless unit act as a dehumidifier which removes moisture. Ductless air conditioners with dehumidifiers have a significant impact on energy efficiency and comfort. Removing humidity makes a room more comfortable so window units cannot provide the same comfort level as ductless air-conditioning.
Getting rid of moisture also improves the energy efficiency of your cooling system. Because your home feels more comfortable, you’re less likely to use your air conditioner and you’re less likely to “blast” your cooling system. You also don’t need to worry about heat loss in the wintertime because you have a window unit. In fact, ductless air-conditioning doesn’t just cool your home. It can also heat your home. And it makes far less noise than other types of air conditioning. A window unit can make between 48 and 60 decibels of sound, while ductless units make between 19 and 30 decibels.
