Ductless air conditioning gets a lot of praise, and for good reason–it’s being chosen over central air conditioning systems by homeowners all across California. When you read about the benefits of a specific type of HVAC system, they’re usually something about the long-term savings–something you can’t enjoy right now. Instead, we want to show you how you can immediately benefit from going ductless. If you’re considering ductless air conditioning in Sacramento, CA, this is what you need to know.
Improved Energy Efficiency Straight Away
Forget about the long-term maintenance benefits–let’s talk about the “right now.” From the moment you turn your ductless air conditioning system on, you are saving money as opposed to that abomination of a central AC system you had before.
You can’t properly measure this on cycle times alone, especially since one of the main benefits of going ductless is zone control. Instead, it’s cheaper to run, uses energy more efficiently, and will likely still match or beat your old central system’s average cycle time.
Granular Control Over Cooling Zones
You want your bedroom to be cold, but you don’t need every inch of your home to be a walk-in freezer. With ductless, provided you have more than one head, you can choose the temperature for different zones in your home.
You can have an ice-cold bedroom, but keep the rest of your home at a reasonable temperature that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg on your next utility bill. This is especially helpful if you and your spouse enjoy different temperatures. Some people run hot, some people run cold, and with ductless you can accommodate both.
Quick and Simple Installation
Unless you’re in a home with existing ductwork, the installation process for ductless units is quicker compared to going with a ducted unit. Not only are you not dealing with ductwork being run through your attic (which takes a lot longer during installation than people realize), but the unit itself has fewer steps than a central AC cabinet.
There’s no concrete pad to pour, and condensate runoff is handled differently than a central AC installation. And depending on how many air handlers there are, overall, the process can be quicker so your home won’t feel like a construction zone for the better part of a week.
Do You Need to Remove Old Ductwork When You Go Ductless?
If you have concerns about switching from a ducted unit to ductless, that’s perfectly valid. The good thing is, we can simply cap off your ductwork and seal the vents with minimal work. That way you aren’t also going through the process of removing old ductwork.
Ductless Is a Game-Changer
These benefits are some of the strongest reasons to make the change, but only if they sound as delightful to you as they do to us. If you need help deciding on your next type of HVAC system, we’re just a phone call away. We’ll help you get sorted before you know it.
