Homeowners in Prairie Village, KS, need air conditioning, but the question is what kind: ducted or ductless? A ductless air conditioner may suit your home better because it’s energy-efficient and provides multi-zone cooling. Read on to learn more about how a ductless AC installation can benefit you.
Ductless AC in Single Rooms
A single-zone ductless air conditioner cools a single room. The indoor air handler installs on the wall. It works out perfectly if you need just one space cooled such as your attic, a garage or a tool shed. Some homeowners, after building a room addition, install a ductless AC system rather than extend their central air conditioner’s ductwork to reach that room.
Ductless Air Conditioning for Whole-House Cooling
Installing ductwork and keeping it clean is a hassle, and some older or historic homes can’t support it. That’s where mini-splits come in handy.
You can connect a total of eight indoor air handlers to one outdoor compressor for whole-house cooling. As a plus, you can keep the compressor as far as 50 feet away from the air handlers.
Multi-Zone Cooling and Other Benefits
Assuming that you schedule regular maintenance, your mini-split could last you a good 30 years, which is 10 years more than the average ducted AC system. The greatest benefit of all, though, lies in the energy savings you’ll experience. That’s because mini-splits don’t leak cool air but rather bring it straight into your room. Since you can control each mini-split with a thermostat, you can create multiple temperature zones for personalized comfort.
