If your home's air conditioning system requires frequent repairs or isn't as effective as it used to be, it may be time for an upgrade. A newer system can save you from needless maintenance costs and improve cooling efficiency, reducing your utility bills. Here's why you should talk to your HVAC contractor about switching to a ductless system.

Why Should You Get Ductless Air Conditioning?

1. Better Temperature Control

Ductless systems accommodate zoned cooling. If you have a room that you use frequently, you can keep this space cooler while minimizing cooling in unused rooms. As such, this method also allows you to save on air conditioning costs.

The zoned system ensures comfort for your entire family. You can adjust temperatures in different family members' bedrooms based on personal preferences.

2. Improved Air Quality

With traditional air conditioning, air is cooled outside the home and then pushed into the different rooms via ducts. Dust, dander, pollen, and other debris can gather in the ductwork. When the HVAC system is on, the air pushes these contaminants into rooms, negatively impacting indoor air quality.

With a ductless system, you don't have to worry about unhealthy debris accumulating in the ducts. Each ductless unit also has its own built-in filtration system to remove allergens and pollutants.

3. Easy Installation & Maintenance

Duct-based air conditioning is complicated to install because the ducts are hidden within the walls of your house. Maintenance can also be a hassle, as the ducts need to be regularly cleaned and checked for holes, rips, or other damage. As long as there's sufficient wall space, an HVAC contractor can install a ductless unit in a single afternoon.
