With the intense summer heat we experience around these parts, hopefully you haven’t been struggling through the season with inefficient or ineffective window air conditioning units simply because you lack ductwork in your home. Many homeowners may avoid buying a central cooling system because they fear the costs or inconvenience of installing ductwork.
Fortunately, it is possible to enjoy whole-house cooling without the use of air ducts. When you choose a ductless mini-split installation, you’ll receive many benefits that a ducted system can’t offer. Of course, this does require professional installation and services from a team you can trust, such as the experts on our staff.
The Ins and Outs of Ductless Systems
As the name implies, no ductwork is required for a ductless mini-split to function. This may leave you wondering just how it distributes cold air through your home. The way it works is by using individual blower units installed throughout the home, each housing evaporator coils needed to remove heat from the air and each connected to an outdoor unit via a conduit that contains the power, refrigerant, and drainage lines that your air conditioning system requires. This setup is similar to a traditional central AC, yet takes up far less space.
One of the various advantages of using a ductless cooling system is that your indoor air quality is protected. The reason for this is because by having no ductwork you’ll remove the threat of leaky ductwork that can compromise your home and your cooling system. Breached air ducts are a serious manner. You may think that they can easily be repaired with store-bought duct tape, but this material is actually improperly named and won’t help you much. By purchasing a ductless system, you’ll avoid this problem altogether.
