May 15, 2018 | Blog

Whether you’re building a new home in Bradenton, Florida, or adding an addition, installing a reliable HVAC system is a must. Unfortunately, many homeowners aren’t prepared to handle the expense of extending ductwork to accompany a central air conditioning system. Let’s take a look at what a ductless AC system is and the most common scenarios in which installing one is beneficial:

What’s a Ductless AC System?

A ductless air conditioner consists of a mounted indoor unit and outside compressor. Ductless units work well in homes where you’d use baseboard heating or window air conditioning units. But unlike window units, ductless systems only require a small hole drilled into the wall. As a result, they’re less vulnerable to air leaks.

Every type of HVAC system has its advantages. From improved indoor air quality to increased efficiency, ductless systems offer the most sought after. Therefore, they’re worth serious consideration in your home.

Ductless AC Systems Work Well In New Additions

If you have central air conditioning and want to build onto your home, you’ll also need to extend your pre-existing ductwork to cool the new area. By installing a ductless AC, you won’t have to pay to extend your ductwork to gain comfort.

Ductless AC Systems Eliminate Hot and Cold Spots

It’s not uncommon for temperatures to vary in different parts of your home. While one room may feel chilly, another may feel too warm. With multiple ductless units installed around your home and zoning applied, you can gain greater temperature control and eliminate hot and cold spots in your home. As a result, you improve energy efficiency.

Ductless AC Systems Are Great for New Constructions

If you’re building a new home, remember that installing a ductless unit is better for the environment. By strategically placing units in different rooms, you’re able to run each one independently, saving energy and reducing your carbon footprint.
