The hot and humid part of the year is already making its way across Summerville, South Carolina. As the temperatures continue to rise, your cooling system continues to work harder. Holes and tears in the cooling system’s ductwork compromise your indoor comfort. Dirty and damaged ductwork increases your cooling expenses as well. What if there was a way to cool your home without ductwork? There is, and it comes in the form of a ductless air conditioning system. Ductless air conditioning significantly improves your indoor comfort while also keeping your cooling expenses to a minimum.
Upgrading to a ductless air conditioning system helps save money in a number of ways. First, you maximize energy savings because you’re cooling your home with a smaller system. Second, you eliminate the possibility of cooled air escaping through ductwork. Plus, ductless AC gives you the choice to cool only the parts of the house that you occupy. You can create zones with ductless cooling, easily allowing you to stop sending cooled air into the rooms that no one uses.
Improve Indoor Air Quality
Ductwork gets dirty fairly quickly. This is why regular duct cleaning is of the utmost importance when using a forced-air cooling system. A ductless system, however, doesn’t use ductwork. Instead, cooled air goes straight into the room via a wall unit that uses a multi-stage filtration system. This filtration translates into improved indoor air quality by lowering levels of dust and other indoor allergens. This offers an especially big benefit to those who suffer from allergies or asthma.
Reduce Your Carbon Footprint
Using a more energy-efficient system reduces your carbon footprint. Ductless AC systems adhere to strict ENERGY STAR guidelines, making them one of the most efficient cooling systems available. Additionally, they don’t use the ozone-depleting refrigerant, R-22. Instead, ductless AC systems use a refrigerant known for its zero ozone depletion potential.
