Running an air conditioner pretty much nonstop here in the summer is pretty much the norm. As necessary as doing so may be, it can also be pretty pricey. You are obviously not going to suffer in discomfort throughout the long cooling season just to save some money, but you certainly wouldn’t turn down the opportunity to save money while also living as comfortably—or even more comfortably—as usual, right? This is why we encourage homeowners throughout the area to consider ductless air conditioning.
There are a few different ways in which opting for ductless air conditioning can save you money. We’ll get into them further just below. First, though, we want to remind you of one important factor as relates to the efficiency and performance quality of any HVAC system: service quality. When you want a ductless air conditioning system installed or serviced, you need to know that you are working with experienced Long Beach HVAC professionals. That’s why you call Goettl Air Conditioning SoCal.
You Eliminate Duct Leaks and the Subsequent Energy Loss
When you use a traditional split central air conditioner or an air-source heat pump, you are relying on your air ducts to distribute cooled air throughout your home. Now, there is nothing inherently wrong with doing so. When air ducts are well-designed and are in great working condition, they can perform this task with great success. But therein lies the issue—what shape are your air ducts actually in?
Many homeowners are paying more than they should have to in order to cool their homes because they do not realize that their air ducts are leaking. It’s not as if you can see most of the ductwork in the system, right? Yes, you can have your ducts tested. Yes, you can have your leaky air ducts sealed to improve efficiency. However, using a ductless mini split guarantees that your ducts won’t leak—because there are no ducts that can leak!
You Enjoy Greater Control with Built-In Zoning
One great way to boost energy efficiency is by using a zone control system with a ducted air conditioner. This allows you to maintain different temperatures in different areas of the house. With a ductless mini split system, however, you do not need to integrate a zone control system into the AC system at large.
This is due to the fact that the individual blowers used in a ductless system are all controlled independently of one another. That means that you can use them to maintain different temperatures in different areas, or even shut one or two off entirely! As a result, you can even improve comfort while cutting down on energy costs.
You Invest in Just One System (A Very Efficient One, At That!)
While cooling-only ductless systems are out there, most homeowners are going to opt for the heat pump model. Like other heat pumps, the ductless split heat pump is capable of both heating and cooling homes.
The heat transfer process is reversed, and existing heat in the air outside is utilized to boost energy efficiency while heating your home. The ductless mini split, as you can see, can really optimize efficiency in your home in a number of ways.
G-O-E-T-T-L—it’ll keep you cool but it’s hard to spell!
