Looking for an new air conditioning system for your home? If so, you have now figured out that there are a lot of options and consideration to take into account. One of the decisions that will need to be made is whether or not to go ductless.
A ductless solution essentially does exactly what it says, it uses no home ductwork. A typical system has a single outdoor unit and a single outdoor unit. A ductless system consists of and outdoor unit and up to four interior air handlers depending on the size and layout of the home. The air handlers are mounted high on the walls throughout the home and connected to the outdoor unit via a conduit containing the power line, refrigerant line, and condensate line. This allows for better efficiency, saves space in your home, and zone-control heating and cooling, complementing the preferences of every member of your household.
A ductless system isn’t a good choice for every type of home. Ductless systems are typically more expensive than traditional systems, but they cost usually cost less to operate. They usually aren’t the right choice for a studio townhouse, but would be great for a multi-level home with many bedrooms. The system would allow for temperatures to vary from room to room which is nice for that one person who is always hot or that other that is always cold!
