Ductless AC is an innovative development in the HVAC industry that was designed to deliver convenient cooling to spaces that lack the ductwork required for conventional HVAC systems. At Melton Heating and Air Conditioning, we offer ductless air conditioning solutions and services that suit your needs.
Ductless Air Conditioning to Supplement Your HVAC System
If you need supplemental cooling for certain parts of your home that your ducted system doesn’t reach, ductless AC might just be the perfect solution. Many homeowners find the cost of extending their current ductwork to serve these areas prohibitive. Others feel the process requires more extensive renovation than they are interested in pursuing. They would rather choose a cooling solution that’s ready to install and use with minimal work. Ductless systems work well in situations like these, allowing homeowners the flexibility they desire to cool room additions and other hard-to-condition parts of their homes without major labor.
Areas Where You Might Add Ductless Air Conditioning
Ductless AC can complement your ducted system nicely if you have hard-to-cool areas in your home. Areas such as room additions, converted garages, finished attics or basements, rec rooms, and sun porches are good candidates for ductless cooling. Some additional advantages of using ductless in these rooms include the following:
- Each room’s temperature can be controlled independently of the main system.
- Individual rooms can be closed off when not in use to save energy.
- Ductless is more energy efficient than a large ducted system.
Using Ductless for Whole-Home Cooling
In homes that lack ductwork, the feasibility of using ductless for whole-home cooling will depend on such factors as the size of the home, how it’s laid out, and how well-insulated and sealed the structure is. Generally speaking, ductless technology works best in smaller homes or apartments, such as granny units, which are sometimes added on to larger homes. One advantage of using ductless for whole-home cooling is that ductless makes it easy to use zoned cooling. By dividing your home into separate zones, each of which is controlled by its own thermostat, you can use ductless for more versatile summertime comfort.
