Ductless Air Conditioning is a viable option for homes in Albuquerque and surrounding areas that weren’t designed with a ducting system. You can control the temperature in specific rooms in your home so you don’t have to cool unused rooms and waste energy and lower your electricity bill by only cooling the rooms that are currently being used.
What Are Ductless Air Conditioners?
A ductless air conditioning system is typically referred to as a mini split air conditioning system. It uses refrigerate air to cool off rooms without having ducting installed in your home. Ductless air conditioners are very popular across the world and are well known for the extremely efficient design and low profile installation for homes and businesses.
A ductless AC unit can heat and cool a home with minimal equipment. The condenser is smaller than your typical home air conditioning system and can be installed in as little of a space such as a window sill or an 18″ by 36″ floor area.
A ductless air conditioning are also often easier to install than other types of space conditioning systems. For example, the hook-up between the outdoor and indoor units generally requires only a three-inch hole through a wall of the conduit. Also, most manufacturers of this type of system can provide a variety of lengths of connecting conduits. So, if necessary, you can locate the outdoor unit as far away as 50 feet from the indoor evaporator. This makes it possible to cool rooms on the front side of a building house with the compressor in a more advantageous or inconspicuous place on the outside of the building. Split-systems can also help to keep your home safer because there is only a small hole in the wall. Through-the-wall and window mounted room air-conditioners can provide an easy entrance for intruders.
Disadvantages of a Ductless Air Conditioner
A ductless mini split system is can be more expensive than the traditional central AC system depending on the size of the cooling area and the proper installation as well as proper specs to best fit the home’s energy consumption needs. This is when having a professional ductless air conditioner installer is imperative to making sure the proper equipment is purchased for the home. Size and cooling power needs to be matched for the room size and the equipment needs to have all the proper parts & materials according to the manufacturer’s specification. Not installing the correct equipment or system could increase your energy consumption if these specs aren’t known and implemented.
