Why Not Cool Your Home without Air Ducts?

Most homeowners use a central forced air cooling system in order to maintain comfortable temperatures within their homes. This means that they use ductwork in order to distribute cooled air throughout the living space. However, this also means that they may encounter some problems specifically caused by faulty ductwork that can impede the cooling process. There is a way to avoid such issues entirely, though: avoiding the use of air ducts. If you are interested in taking advantage of ductless air conditioning in Madera, CA, give a member of our staff a call today.


One of the main reasons for considering the installation of a ductless air conditioning system in one’s home is to boost energy efficiency. Leaky ductwork is one of, if not the, most common causes of energy loss in any given home. Because ductless mini splits use individual, wall-mounted blowers in order to cool rooms directly, rather than distributing cooled air throughout an entire house via a system of air ducts, this problem can be avoided completely. When no ducts are used, there is no risk of ducts leaking.


Does everyone in your home have the same exact preferences when it comes to temperature maintenance? If so, consider yourself lucky. In most homes, this level of agreement just isn’t the case. That leads to arguments over what to set the thermostat to, and you may wind up with a thermostat being constantly adjusted. When you can cool different areas of your home to different temperatures, everyone therein can live in true comfort.


Another reason to consider the installation of ductless mini splits is if you live in an old home that cannot readily accommodate ductwork, or if you simply wish to avoid the hassle of having air ducts installed in a preexisting property. Just remember that the fact that no ducts are required does not make this a DIY appropriate endeavor. You absolutely must have your ductless AC installed and serviced by a qualified professional.
