Why Should I Cool My Home without Ductwork?

A lot of homeowners are under the false impression that they can either use a ducted, split central air conditioning system to cool their homes, or that they are stuck with inefficient window units which can put the security of their homes at risk. In fact, though, there is a way in which you can cool your entire home with a whole-house air conditioning system without using any ductwork at all. Ductless air conditioners in Phoenix, AZ make this possible. It is no surprise, then, that ductless ACs have surged in popularity in recent years.

How Does Ductless Air Conditioning Work?

A ductless air conditioner features an outdoor compressor unit, much like that to be found in a traditional split central AC. However, rather than use air ducts in order to distribute conditioned air throughout a house, a ductless air conditioner instead uses individual, wall-mounted blowers in order to do so. This means that the homeowner is free to cool different areas of the home independently of the others, as the blowers are regulated by their own corresponding thermostats. Typically, an outdoor unit will be capable of supporting up to 4 individual air handlers within the home. The only thing necessary in order to connect the indoor and outdoor components is a simple conduit, which contains the power, refrigerant, and any necessary drainage lines.

Benefits of Ductless Cooling

There are a few ways in which a ductless cooling system can be beneficial for homeowners. First of all, such systems are very efficient. After all, it’s not like there is any risk of air leaks in ductwork, a common cause of inefficiency in cooling systems. Plus, cooling your home without air ducts can help to keep the air quality throughout the home high. There is no risk of pollutants travelling throughout the system of ductwork. Finally, heat pump technology can give you the option of using the very same system in order to warm your home during our mild winter weather. To learn more, contact the experts on our staff.
