You may not have heard of ductless air conditioning systems, but they are the way of the future in residential and commercial cooling in Northeast Ohio. As opposed to traditional central air conditioning that forces cool air through a system of ducts throughout an entire building, ductless systems (also called mini-split or split systems) deliver cool air directly to specific “zones.” Ductless AC systems are comprised of a small outdoor unit connected via refrigerant lines to wall-mounted indoor units that are controlled independently of each other.
There are many reasons why more and more homeowners in the Cleveland metropolitan area are turning to ductless air conditioners:
- Energy efficiency. In this time of skyrocketing utility costs in Northeast Ohio, the most attractive thing about ductless mini-split AC is its significant cost-savings. Ductless systems operate on much less power than traditional air conditioning, and allow homeowners to cool only select occupied rooms rather than the whole home. Because of this, ductless mini-split systems adhere to the EPA’s strict Energy Star guidelines and result in a much smaller carbon footprint.
- Cost savings. Ductless mini-split air conditioning allows for exceptional home comfort at minimal cost. In addition to saving a lot in utility bills, ductless systems require less labor to install and are less expensive to maintain over time than central air conditioning. In addition, homeowners who switch to ductless or mini-split AC may be eligible for government tax credits or utility rebates.
- Air quality. With traditional HVAC systems, it is easy for dust, mold, pet dander, and other airborne allergens to clog up air ducts, contaminate the air, and make you sick. In contrast, ductless mini-split air conditioning offers multi-stage filtration that drastically reduces air contaminates. Moreover, there is no need to worry about inconvenient annual duct cleanings.
As with all home cooling appliances, it is essential that your ductless mini-split air conditioner be installed by a licensed Cleveland AC company. Improper DIY installation can void your system’s warranty and cause permanent damage to your home. A trained cooling professional can select and size your ductless system, install the outdoor unit, run refrigerant lines, install indoor unit(s), and make sure everything is functioning properly.
