With summer quickly approaching, you may be looking for the best way to cool your home this year. While there are many options, one of the most energy- and cost-efficient solutions is a ductless system. Often called a ductless mini-split, it functions much like a window unit, except it only requires one small hole in the wall connecting the outside compressor to the inside unit. Toms River Heating & Air Conditioning, of Ocean County, NJ, explains why ductless systems are more efficient.
With their simple and straightforward design, ductless systems are much cheaper than central HVAC systems, which have large inside and outside units and extensive ductwork. Also, because they are smaller than a central system, ductless units are easier to install. While installation of a central system can be an invasive and lengthy process, ductless ACs usually require no more than a day or two.
If you have a small home or only need certain spaces cooled at a time, ductless systems are the most efficient option. They can selectively cool areas of up to 900 square feet, preventing the waste of cold air in rooms you aren’t using. Because air ducts absorb up to 25% of the cool air your central AC unit produces, simply removing the need for ducts increases energy efficiency, too.
Not only is the cost and installation of a ductless system cheaper, but so is maintenance. Because these systems are more accessible and smaller, maintenance and repairs don’t take long and are not as difficult. Also, costly duct cleaning is not necessary, making the general upkeep much cheaper.
