Reasons to Pick a Ductless AC for a New Air Conditioner Installation

    With such a short cold season here in Georgia, it’s really never too early to start thinking about installing a new air conditioning system if your current one is old or not working as well as it once did. In fact, this is one of the best times of the year to have installation scheduled, since it’s easier to arrange a convenient time without the big rush to beat out the big heat of the year.

    Have you thought about a ductless AC?

    Ductless mini split systems are rising in popularity with homeowners. These comfort systems are heat pumps that operate through a series of small air handlers mounted inside rooms, rather than a single indoor unit that sends cooled air through ductwork. The mini air handlers have refrigerant coils and blower fans so they can blow the cooled air straight into the living spaces. But they’re still part of a central comfort system, since the indoor units connect to a single outside cabinet.

    Are there advantages to this type of AC?

    Many! Not all of them may apply to your home, but here are some to think about.

    • Since ductless mini splits are types of heat pumps, you can also get heating from one. That’s takes care of year-round comfort.
    • The lack of ducts means you don’t have to worry about duct leaks, duct cleaning, and some of the general efficiency troubles that ducts can create.
    • Ductless mini splits use smaller motors than standard ACs and heat pumps, so they require less power. Along with the lack of ducts, this means they use less power. You can expect reduce energy bills.
    • Since each air handler can be operated separately from the others, you only need to run the units in occupied rooms. This is another way to save money.
    • If you’re building a new home or remodeling your current one, a ductless AC gives you more freedom—there are no space-eating ducts to worry about!
