Throw Out that Window AC! 3 Reasons to Go Ductless

Many homeowners without a central duct system rely on clunky window units that sit in the windowsill and block your view. It’s difficult to open a window if you want some fresh air, and these units are very inefficient and not as effective as central AC at cooling down an entire room. Thankfully, this is not the only system available to homeowners without ductwork. A professionally installed ductless AC system with an outdoor unit and multiple indoor blower units is one of the best solutions for homeowners without any central system, and it is well worth the cost and the time for installation. Here’s why we think it’s time for you to make the upgrade.

  • Window units are inefficient. Window units are not held to the same federal standards as central air conditioning systems, so they do not reach the same energy efficiency levels as high-efficiency central air conditioning systems do. Using multiple window units to cool the rooms in your home can really add up, while ductless mini split systems are actually often more efficient than the standard central air conditioner.
  • Ductless units offer heating and cooling in one. We have a fairly short cold weather period here in Florida. But there’s still a period of time you want heating in your home, and a space heater is an ineffective way to accomplish this. Most ductless mini splits can reverse the movement of refrigerant and serve as efficient heating systems as well.
  • Ductless air conditioning systems have long lifespans. A quality ductless AC system ends up being worth the cost of installation, because the amount of money you save over time, combined with the long lifespan of the ductless unit, can eventually offset the price. The average ductless mini split system can last about 15 years.
