Choosing a ductless system instead of central air conditioning


I’ve been thinking about adding central air conditioning to my home. Currently, we manage the summer weather with window air conditioners. I am not happy with carrying the cooling units down from the attic in the spring and hauling them back up for storage in the fall. I don’t like that the equipment blocks the view from the windows and destroys curb appeal. However, the central air conditioner is quite expensive, and we don’t really need to cool every single room of the house. While the summer weather tends to be extremely hot and humid, it doesn’t last long. Our priority is heating. With temperatures often well below freezing, the furnace sometimes struggles to keep up. After researching the pros and cons of different types of cooling options, I am strongly considering a ductless heat pump. Ductless systems install without any disruption or damage to the home. The outdoor compressor is compact, quiet and links to multiple indoor air handlers via a slender conduit. The air handlers mount up high on the wall. They are lightweight, unobtrusive and feature independent thermostats that provide zone control. In the winter, the ductless heat pump would help out with heating, enhancing comfort and trimming expenses. In the summer, the system would offer effective cooling and dehumidification. Modern ductless systems utilize inverter technology that achieves outstanding efficiency ratings. They are wonderfully environmentally friendly and keep running costs to a minimum. I like the idea of customizing temperature settings in each room. I’d no longer need to pay to maintain empty spaces at the ideal comfort level. Plus, family members could adjust temperature according to personal preference.
