A ductless mini split may be the answer!
Ductless air conditioning is a legitimate option that may be more suitable than traditional whole-building air conditioning systems in specific circumstances.
However, keep in mind that ductless systems are intended for spot-cooling/heating only – they are not a cost-effective option for cooling an entire building. Ductless air conditioning may also be more suitable than traditional air conditioning in certain situations where running duct work is not feasible.
Ductless units are normally interior, wall-hung units with an outdoor partner unit linked with refrigerant piping. They are similar in concept to window A/C units but operate much more quietly and efficiently due to more advanced technological design. Additionally, interior ductless systems do not block off a window. Most duct work is the conventional type, which is installed either in the attic space. Sometimes, there just isn’t the space to install this kind of behind-the-scenes equipment. In such circumstances, ductless air conditioning may be a good solution. One of our trained Comfort Consultants can survey your home or office and discuss the best options for your unique building design.
Here are some of the benefits:
- The units can be installed on an individual basis from room to room, offering the ability to cool or heat each room as desired and thereby saving energy. One feasible application includes office areas where individual needs come into play from one area of the building to another. Other great applications would include sun rooms, casitas, and converted garages.
- Normally the installation of a ductless system is not as intrusive as a standard ducted unit. This varies, however, with each unique home design.
- Today’s ductless units are often remote-controlled, allowing you to adjust the temperature from anywhere within eyesight of the unit.
- Ductless systems have been installed for years without much trouble.
AZ Perfect Comfort does indeed sell, install, and service both types of system (traditional and ductless). A home survey performed by one of our trained Comfort Consultants is recommended to determine which system will best fit your needs.
