There will be times in your life when you may be prompted to begin thinking about maintenance for your AC system or perhaps replacing your current system altogether for a more efficient, updated option. It is important to know about the different choices for air conditioning systems for your home as you ponder these questions. AC options range from traditional central air conditioning systems to mini split systems that can come as either duct or ductless systems. Ductless systems, in particular, have been becoming more popular and have some unique advantages over systems that use ducting.
These systems, often referred to as ductless mini splits, were first introduced in the 1970s and have been gaining traction in recent years. They are a more energy-efficient and cost-effective system that doesn’t use ducting throughout the house and instead focuses on providing heating or cooling to single rooms or a few rather than using connective ducting to cool or heat the entire home.
There are a lot of questions to consider when choosing the right system for you. Think about things like your wishes on energy efficiency, your budget, and your overall heating and cooling needs. Ductless systems have many advantages for you to keep in mind as you decide which system is best for you. Naughton Mechanical professionals are well-versed in ductless installation in St. John and are available to answer any of your questions.
Ductless mini-split systems are advantageous for their size, flexibility, and energy efficiency. These systems are smaller than the traditional duct system, which saves space and can even save money on installation. They also offer a lot of flexibility when it comes to their placement. A variety of lengths are offered for conduits to connect the mini split, which allows the compressor to be placed in a less noticeable area. Not only is the ductless system flexible in its placement but also in its use. Ductless systems will only heat or cool the areas in which they’re located, which allows you the freedom to have different rooms heated or cooled to different temperatures or not at all. Lastly, ductless systems are often viewed as more energy efficient. Traditional ducting is prone to leaks which leads to a lot of wasted energy. In fact, 30% of a ducted system’s energy consumption can be from leaks in the ducting. With a ductless system, you will never have to worry about leaks increasing your monthly bill or wasting valuable energy.
