Ductless air conditioning, or mini-splits, are increasing in popularity because they offer many advantages over central air systems. Here are four reasons to consider installing ductless AC in your Pooler, GA home.
Targeted Comfort Where and When You Need It
In most ducted AC systems, one thermostat regulates the temperature throughout your home. Ductless AC systems have an air handler in each room or zone. A separate thermostat controls each zone, allowing you to fine-tune the temperature in each area according to your preferences.
Savings on Utility Costs and Energy Usage
Experts say that you can lose up to 30 percent of conditioned air as it moves through a ducted system. In other words, 30 cents out of every energy dollar disappears into thin air. Ductless AC avoids that energy loss and lets you put that 30 cents in your piggy bank.
Easier and Quicker HVAC Installations
Installing central air conditioning depends on many variables — including amount of workspace, adding to or installing ductwork, and disruptions to finished living spaces — and can take several days. In comparison, ductless HVAC installations consist of drilling a 3-inch hole for each air handler and running conduit containing electrical and refrigerant lines from the indoor unit to the outside unit.
To Supplement Your Central AC System
If you have an upstairs bedroom or three-season room that feels like an oven while the rest of your home is comfortable, a ductless system can fix those trouble spots. A ductless mini-split is also a good alternative for room additions where installing ductwork might be too cumbersome or costly.
The versatility of ductless systems makes ductless AC an attractive option in many situations. To discover whether a ductless system is right for your home, check out the ductless air conditioning services we offer at Coastline Heating & Air or call us today.
