The warm, humid summers in Bath, PA, can be unbearable without air conditioning. Ductless AC solves many of the problems related to central air conditioning systems. Consider these three solutions ductless air conditioning provides.
Difficulty With Installing Ductwork
Many older homes don’t have ductwork. Because they’re heated with steam or hot water, no ducts were needed. If you’re ready to install air conditioning, retrofitting ductwork into an old house can be next to impossible. Ductless AC allows you to enjoy cool, refreshing indoor air throughout your entire home. Ductless mini-splits also have high-efficiency filters, so your home’s air will be cleaner and easier to breathe. Air ducts can waste up to 30% of the cooled air from an air conditioner, explains the Department of Energy. With a ductless cooling system, you’ll save money and improve your comfort.
Service a Newly Finished Living Space
If you’ve just finished your basement or attic and turned it into a living space, you’ll want the benefits of heating and air conditioning. A ductless mini-split efficiently heats and cools these parts of your home, and it does so quietly. When putting in the drywall and ceilings in these areas, you won’t have to worry about making room for bulky ducts. The indoor unit of the system can be placed in a convenient location, such as on the wall or ceiling.
New Addition to Your Home
If you already have central air conditioning, its capacity might not be enough to cool an addition to your home. Instead of having to install a larger central air conditioner, a ductless AC system ensures that your new rooms will be comfortable year-round. The ductless system gives you more design options and flexibility for the home addition. You’ll maximize the functionality of your home addition by not having to reserve space for bulky air ducts.
