Why a Ductless AC Might Be Just What You Need

February 26, 2017

Ductless AC is a popular choice for many Ocala, FL, homeowners. Mini splits offer energy efficiency, zoning, improved indoor air quality and other attractive features. Here are three good reasons to go ductless:

1. Greater Energy Efficiency

Energy costs are increasing by the day. If you have an inefficient system, you’re sure to be feeling the dent in your pocketbook. Ductless air conditioners follow ENERGY STAR guidelines, so they surpass U.S. government air conditioner efficiency standards. Ductless AC has multiple fan speeds and a variable-speed compressor, so it needs less power to keep you cool. Also, when you purchase an energy-efficient ductless system, you’ll qualify for a variety of Florida and Ocala rebates.

2. Healthier Indoor Air

Indoor air can be 100 times more polluted than outside air. With central air conditioning, your home is likely to suffer from poor indoor air quality because contaminants that collect in your duct work are constantly blowing into your home. Ductless mini splits have advanced, multi-stage filtration technology that traps bacteria, dust mites, pet dander, mold spores, viruses and other particulates. It also has a dehumidification feature to guard against mold and mildew.

3. Targeted Cooling Capacity

Ductless cooling systems have one outdoor unit and multiple indoor units. Each indoor unit controls one room or zone, and because each zone has its own thermostat, you can keep the AC high only in the rooms you’re using. Cooled air is delivered directly to a zone without passing through duct work, so it can’t collect contaminants or escape through leaks. With zoning, you’ll enjoy all the cooled air you pay for.
