Are you ready to use cutting-edge technology to keep your home cool all summer long? For many homeowners in Finleyville, PA, ductless AC is the right solution, providing maximum efficiency and extreme savings on your utility bills.
What Is Ductless AC?
As the name implies, ductless air conditioners sidestep the need for a duct system by delivering cooling power directly to your living area. A ductless air conditioner consists of a single outdoor unit and one to four small indoor units, depending on the size of the home. You can increase the number of indoor and outdoor units to fit any size of home. Conduit lines connect the indoor and outdoor units, allowing the system to transfer heat out of your home.
Ductless systems use the same basic cooling cycle as traditional air conditioners, but they have a few key advantages. First, they are more efficient just by virtue of being ductless; remember, the average central air conditioner loses almost a third of its cooling power to leaks in the duct system. Second, ductless units use variable-speed compressors to match your home’s cooling needs in real time. That means there’s no constant cycling on and off, leading to more efficient cooling and better comfort.
Is Ductless AC Right For Me?
Again, one of the significant advantages of ductless AC is that there is no need for a duct system. In older homes where there are no ducts, or when building a new home or new addition on an existing home, ductless AC installation may be a more economical option than building or extending a duct system.
Because they are compact, ductless units are also great for apartments, condominiums, offices and other settings where space is at a premium. Finally, because they are the most efficient systems on the market today, ductless systems are the best choice for both environmentally conscious and budget-conscious homeowners.
