What is Ductless Air Conditioning? How Does it Work?

Find Out If Ductless AC is Right for Your Home 

Ductless AC units offer homeowners a simple, easy to control solution for cooling in the summer months, especially in smaller rooms or older homes. Typical AC units are installed in your basement and then distribute cool air through vent systems concealed in your floors and walls. Ductless AC units are more compact forms of air conditioning, using the same technology, but they directly cool a space, without the need for complex vents and piping. There are many pros to ductless AC units which make them worth considering for homeowners. You can choose between single-zone and multi-zone ductless units, depending on your home’s cooling requirements. 

5 Reasons to Get a Ductless AC Unit

There are a lot of advantages to a ductless AC unit, but before going out and spending the money on one, it is important to first understand whether or not it is the right solution for your specific needs. Here are five reasons people commonly choose ductless AC units: 

  • You have new additions to your home: If you have just added a new extension to your home, running additional AC ducts to it can be an expensive process which may impact the overall effectiveness of your unit. In cases like this, it is often better to install a ductless system specifically for that extension in order to save money and time.
  • Downsizing: For people on tight budgets, or retirees who do not need to cool every room in their house, investing in a ductless unit can be a good solution. By installing these to cool only specific areas of the home, homeowners can avoid turning on their larger units. Ductless systems are also up to 25% more efficient than common AC units, saving money during the summer months.
  • Allows for variation: A common complaint in households with more than one person is that people will fight over the thermostat. Everyone’s body has a different preferred temperature and in the summer months this can lead to friction in a family about when it is too cold or too hot. By installing multi-zone ductless systems, you can ensure that everyone can control the temperature in their own space without having to worry about other occupants.
  • Support specific rooms: Especially in older homes, some rooms may be draftier or warmer than others. If there is a specific room in your house that gets hotter than others, installing a ductless unit can be a good way to better regulate its temperature, without having to change how other rooms in the house are cooled.
  • For homes without existing ductwork: Some houses were never built with ductwork, which can be expensive and disruptive to subsequently install. In these cases, it is often easier to go with a ductless solution, which avoids the highly involved installation processes of a duct-based HVAC unit.

When trying to decide whether a ductless AC unit is the right solution for your home, the best thing to do is consult with an experienced HVAC technician. After reviewing your needs, they will be able to give you an informed recommendation about where a unit could be installed, and which specific make and model may be best for your home. They will also be able to ensure your ductless unit is properly installed, to maximize efficiency and cooling abilities.
