Benefits to Ductless AC Systems: Zoning and Energy Savings

February 19, 2020

A ductless AC system can make your Southwest Louisiana home more comfortable during summer’s hot and humid months. Stop for a moment and consider the multiple benefits this system can bring to your home.

Energy Savings

A ductless AC system is a more energy-efficient way to cool your home than window units and less unsightly. Window units use more electricity and do not have the higher SEER ratings that a ductless unit has. Because there is no ductwork needed, there is no energy loss that you often see with a central air system. A ducted, central air system can lose up to 30 percent of its efficiency as its cooled air blows through ducts in unconditioned spaces like hot attics.

Cool Only the Rooms You Need To

With a ductless AC system, you can have different zones set up in your home. This allows you to control what areas you want to cool. While this can be possible with a central air system, the system will need upgrades to make it happen. Being able to cool only the areas of your home that are occupied can help cut your cooling costs.

Ductless AC is Ideal for Older Homes

Because a ductless AC system does not require any ductwork, it is ideal for older homes or smaller homes that do not have ductwork. Having to retrofit your home to add ducts can be expensive and inconvenient when space is limited. Only minor modifications are needed to be done to your home. The indoor component is mounted to your wall. This unit is attached via refrigerant and electrical lines that are run through a drilled hole to the system’s outdoor component.
