Is a Ductless Air Conditioner Right for You?

Californians get to enjoy a long, sunny summer season. Sometimes, the heat can be a bit too much even for those of us who love the summer weather the most, though. That is why it is so important that you not only have a reliable air conditioning system in your home, but also that that air conditioner is the right fit for your needs and your personal user preferences. One option that has gained a lot of traction in residential applications over the years is the ductless air conditioner. Consider the following information; you may just find that a ductless AC system is the option that you’ve been looking for. If so, the next step is simple. Pick up the phone and schedule your ductless air conditioning services in Fresno, CA with Donald P. Dick Air Conditioning. 

What Exactly Is a Ductless Air Conditioner?

Ductless air conditioning systems, of course, are central AC systems which do not necessitate the use of air ducts in order to cool an entire home. Instead, ductless mini splits utilize multiple indoor blower units, which act as evaporators and distribute cooled air to their designated areas. An outdoor unit acts as the condenser. Each indoor unit is controlled independently of the others by its own thermostat. A conduit, containing power, refrigerant, and necessary drainage lines is all that is necessary to connect to the indoor blowers to the outdoor condenser.

Benefits of Ductless Air Conditioning

The unique design of the ductless cooling system gives it a number of advantages that other central AC systems lack. The ease of installation – though professional installation services are still necessary – is one of the biggest selling points. Such systems are ideal for homes which cannot accommodate bulky air ducts, as well as for those homeowners looking to avoid the air quality and efficiency issues which can result from damaged ductwork. Plus, you can cool different areas of your home to different temperatures, conserving energy and allowing everyone therein to live comfortably. Finally, ductless ACs can utilize heat pump technology in order to reverse their operation during the winter, meaning that they can heat a home as well as cool it.
