FAQs About Ductless Air Conditioning
If you’re looking for a home-cooling solution that is effective, efficient, and less expensive to operate, then a ductless air conditioner from All Temp Co., Inc Air Conditioning, Heating, Plumbing, & Electrical could be the perfect option for you. These smaller systems allow for easy cooling of a single room, allowing you to save excess cooling capacity, thereby saving money. To better understand if a ductless system is right for your needs, here are answers to a few questions that are frequently asked about ductless air conditioners.
How Do Ductless Systems Differ From Window Units?
When most people think of smaller air conditioner units, they think of window units. Window air conditioners have long been used to add extra cooling capacity for those who couldn’t afford a whole-home air conditioner or who only needed to cool a single room. One of the problems with window units, though, is that they are notoriously difficult to insulate around.
Since the unit sits both inside and outside, it must be in an open window to work properly. Unfortunately, even with newer insulation methods, an open window is still an open window. Keeping a window open during the summer can cause hot, humid air to come into your home, thus making your air conditioner work harder.
When it comes to ductless air conditioners from All Temp Co., Inc Air Conditioning, Heating, Plumbing, & Electrical, these systems are separated into two units, only connected by a refrigerant line. Though this line must exit through an exterior wall, it is much easier to insulate it properly so that your home doesn’t become inefficient.
Why Not Install a Central Air Conditioner?
Central air conditioners are an effective solution to keep an entire home cool. However, you may not always need the capabilities or want the challenges of having a central air conditioner. For example, if you spend most of your time in one room, it makes sense to only cool that room. This is a perfect use case for a ductless air conditioner from All Temp Co., Inc Air Conditioning, Heating, Plumbing, & Electrical.
Another reason to use a ductless air conditioner is if you live in a home that can’t be easily outfitted with ducts. Whether you live in an older home or you’re simply worried that the ductwork will ruin your home’s aesthetics, a system with ductless capabilities makes a lot of sense. If you have a smaller home with only a few rooms, a ductless system also makes sense because it can keep your entire home cool at a fraction of the cost.
Can Ductless Systems Provide Heat?
One of the major perks of a ductless system is that it can provide both heating and air conditioning, all within a compact frame. This means that you can keep your home comfortable all year long without needing to add any extra equipment. Plus, since the unit that produces the heat resides in the room that needs heat, you will be able to warm-up a room more quickly, even on the coldest days.
How Do You Operate a Ductless Air Conditioner?
One common concern that people have about ductless air conditioners is about how they will operate the system once it’s in place. After all, the unit itself is typically mounted high on a wall, putting it out of reach. Fortunately, operating a ductless air conditioner is quite easy.
Each unit is equipped with a remote control that includes all the functions you’ll need. From this remote, you can turn the unit off and on and set your desired temperature. Therefore, rather than installing a thermostat that could detract from your home’s decor, you can keep your home comfortable with this easy-to-use remote that can be hidden away when it’s not being used.
