When it comes to keeping our homes more comfortable, there are many options to choose from. Some home owners may opt for window ac units, others for an assortment of fans, many are “traditionalist” and simply have a gas or electric HVAC system installed. But, there is always another approach – today’s homeowners can have a ductless air conditioning system (also known as a min-split AC); this is an option that more and more homeowners are finding quite appealing.
But what is the big deal about a ductless air conditioning system? Consider these benefits:
1. A ductless air conditioning system is easy to install. It is usually just a two person job which means that instead of needing to pay a large crew, you only have to cover cost for 2 people. Even better, its ease of installation means that it normally takes a day- or less- to install and have working.
2. A ductless AC unit is more compact than a large whole home HVAC system, which makes them the perfect choice for an apartment or starter home. They are also idea for basements or attic spaces, or for individual rooms within large homes.
3. They are eco-friendly because they use less energy and make it possible to cool a specific space rather trying to cool numerous rooms that might not be in use.
4. They can be used for both heating and cooling your home, even better, they will do it for as much as 30% less than other HVAC systems. According to the EPA, the average family spends an average of $1,000 a year on energy costs- that 30% can be significant!
5. A ductless air conditioning system will improve your home or office’s air quality because they have a multi-stage filtration system that significantly reduces the amount of dust, pollen, bacteria, and other particulates in the air.
6. They are quiet. Standard style air conditioners can make a lot of noise. A ductless air conditioning unit typically is no louder than a hum. It makes so little noise that standard conversation, music or television easily masks it.
7. They are easy to operate and typically come with a remote, which means that you can change the temperature of the room without ever leaving the couch or your bed.
Ductless air conditioning units are a practical way to keep your home comfortable all year around, because of their efficiency and eco-friendly style make them perfect for nearly any space.
