Efficient, Secure, and Quiet Cooling (and Heating!)
Fall is the perfect time to consider installing ductless air conditioning in your home. The indecisive nature of Georgia’s weather benefits from the convenience of ductless air conditioning units. These modern AC units can boost your central air conditioning. Most models also provide heat, which may be just enough warmth on a chilly morning.
Before you make the decision to update your cooling equipment, call Estes Services. Our experienced team members will inspect your current cooling system and discuss with you the options of ductless air conditioning. In the meantime, let’s review how ductless air conditioning works, the benefits it offers and the options you have.
How Ductless Air Conditioning Works
Ductless air conditioning consists of an outdoor unit and small, inconspicuous indoor unit. It works similar to a heat pump by cooling a space during the warmer months. During the winter, it reverses the process to heat the same area. The indoor unit operates as an air handler and circulates climate-controlled air into a room. The outdoor equipment houses the motor and refrigerant.
They operate without using ductwork, similar to the old-fashioned window AC units. You can use a single indoor unit or multiple units connected to one outdoor unit. Multiple indoor units allow you to set up a zoned system. If you have a larger home or rarely-used rooms, you can control the climate in specific spaces without affecting the rest of your house.
The Benefits of Ductless Air Conditioning Systems
Residents who install ductless systems experience increased energy savings and more installation flexibility. Below are a few other advantages ductless technology offers:
A ductless air conditioning system offers heating and cooling capabilities in a specified area. It doesn’t interfere with your current HVAC system, which means you decide when it needs to operate. Most systems come with a remote control for ultimate convenience.
Traditional forced-air systems are noisy when the air is circulated through ducts. The old window-style units were loud enough to disrupt conversations. Ductless air conditioning systems operate quietly because the “noisy” part is on the outside.
Healthier Air Quality
Unlike traditional heating and cooling systems, ductless air conditioning systems do not take in pollutants from the rest of the home. Odors, dust and other debris can’t travel into your ductless space. Replace the air filter every one to three months to keep the air healthy in your ductless zone.
Many Atlanta residents find ductless air conditioners ideal for converted spaces, like garages, attic bonus rooms or additions. Without factoring ductwork installation, ductless units are great for remodels.
Available Ductless Options
A ductless air conditioning system is typically installed in one day. You can decide whether you prefer your ductless unit to mount on the wall or ceiling. Installation requires a three-inch hole in the wall to connect the electrical and refrigerant lines to the outside unit. This small entry point also removes the security concerns common with older window units.
