As summers become longer and hotter, more people are seeking ways to keep their homes cool. If you’re in the market to buy an air conditioner, you may be wondering if a ductless air conditioner is right for you.
What’s a Ductless Air Conditioner?
Ductless air conditioning units are, as the name suggests, air conditioners that don’t require a duct system to distribute cool air through the house. Instead of being connected to a ducting set, these units are usually mounted in a central location. They have multiple cooling compartments that connect to separate vents via flexible tubing.
Ductless air conditioning units are usually more energy-efficient and quieter than traditional central air conditioners. They’re much easier to install, too. These systems are also usually much cheaper to purchase, operate, and maintain than ducted models.
Many ductless units are environmentally friendly, depending on the type of compressor you choose. Many newly manufactured models have a small motor and fan inside the unit that allows for a much more compact and lightweight system that emits very few emission particles into the atmosphere.
Cooling an Entire Home
Many people mistakenly believe that a ductless AC can cool an entire house, but this is untrue. Ductless AC units are designed for smaller spaces. While you can cool one or two rooms with the same unit, a ductless air conditioner usually can’t cool an entire residence. However, you can install multiple units to cool multiple rooms. In addition, you can use more than one unit on a single floor.
