Understanding Ductless Systems

If you’re searching the internet for information about ductless systems the first thing you need to know is that ductless air conditioners are also commonly referred to as ductless mini-splits.

A ductless air conditioner is a heat pump system that doesn’t rely on the ductwork of your home to heat or cool your ductwork. Instead, it uses individual, wall-mounted air handlers for all your temperature control needs. Since ductless systems are heat pumps, they can both heat and cool your home.

The Benefits of Going Ductless

So why should you make the switch? Ductless systems provide all the following benefits:

It’s Better for the Environment

Upgrading to a ductless system is better for the environment than running your older model air conditioner. A ductless system can help you reduce your carbon footprint because it allows you to “zone” your home. Since ductless air conditioners all work individually you don’t have to blast cold air throughout your entire home if you just want to cool off in your bedroom—you can just cool off your bedroom. This opportunity for a higher amount of control reduces your environmental impact and saves you money.

It Offers Higher Quality Comfort

You can focus on specific areas of your home with ductless mini-splits. If you have a two-story home and/or a home with lots of natural light pouring in, you’ve probably noticed that rooms on the second floor or near windows are naturally warmer than others. If you have a ductless mini-split system in your home, you can mount air handlers in these rooms and turn them on when you need them. This provides a better level of comfort rather than just blasting cold air throughout your home for long amounts of time and hoping that these spaces cool off the way you want them to.

It Saves You Money

Running your AC where you need it rather than where you have to run it can save you money. You know how much an Orem summer can strain your wallet. An efficient and adaptive system like this can really help you stick to your budget this summer! If you’re interested in a ductless unit then make sure you contact our team.
