Invite Friends and Family to Be Cool When It’s Getting Hot Outdoors
Spring brings more than flowers and warmer temperatures to Valdosta and other south Georgia towns. It brings many occasions to celebrate with friends and family, like Mother’s Day, graduations, baby and bridal showers and more. If you have “hot spots” in your home and need an air conditioning boost, a ductless air conditioner may be right for you. They’re quiet, efficient and can be quickly installed before your event.
Where Can I Install Ductless Air Conditioners?
The short answer is virtually anywhere! Because they are independent of ductwork, these little cooling gems can be installed without worrying about existing ventilation systems. Installation only requires drilling a small three-inch hole in the wall to pass the electrical and condensate lines through to the outdoor unit!
Because units include an indoor air handler with a fan and evaporator coil in the same enclosure, they require less space. They can be installed with very little disruption to your household routine.
Many homeowners in older homes find ductless air conditioners to be wonderful at increasing comfort in their home without disturbing the integrity of the architecture or internal systems. Others who finish existing spaces like garages, garage apartments, “man caves” or enclose patios love the flexibility ductless air conditioners can bring.
What Are the Benefits of Ductless Air Conditioners?
Unlike bulky, noisy and inefficient window units, ductless air conditioners come in many shapes, forms and depending on the size, are Energy Star rated. Working similar to central air systems on a smaller scale, ductless air conditioners can cool more with less energy and a smaller footprint.
Ductwork is often a source of accumulated dust, pollen, pet dander and other debris circulating through a traditional central air system. By eliminating the ductwork, a ductless air conditioner improves your indoor air quality as well. The high-performance filters trap allergens and other particles. Swap out a used filter for a clean one every month and you’re breathing easy!
You can achieve zone cooling by default. Too often, homeowners think by closing vents in unused rooms they’re saving money. Unfortunately, they’re more likely to create mold problems and overtax their HVAC system as it battles the temperature and pressure imbalances. With ductless, you can install a unit in your bedroom for comfort, for example, and use the central system in a minimal fashion.
As a bonus, most ductless systems have the capacity to heat too, so they’re wonderful at taking the chill off a room during the occasional cold snap. As a Carrier Factory Authorized Dealer, we carry a variety of ductless air conditioners.
