Homeowners who are looking for an air conditioning product that is not a large window-mounted unit or a central air system now have the option of purchasing something that is in between both extremes: a ductless air conditioning system, otherwise known as a mini-split air conditioning system. Mini-split air conditioning systems are unique because they provide a ductless option for homes that lack the necessary ductwork.
Although ductless air conditioners have been on the Asian markets since the 1950’s, they are a relatively new trend to air conditioning services in North America. Edwin Stipe, an HVAC contractor serving customers throughout Stewartsville, Phillipsburg, Bethlehem, Nazareth, and the neighboring Lehigh Valley area, hopes to educate customers on the various advantages of ductless air conditioners that they may not know about.
1. Easy Installation
Although many manufacturers of ductless air conditioners require the use of a licensed HVAC contractor in installing the unit in order to maintain the validity of the warranty, the process is very quick and relatively simple. Homeowners who are considering ductless air conditioning will be happy to know that the installation process can be completed within a couple of days.
Unlike other air conditioning systems that use ductwork, the mini-split air conditioners do not lose thermal heat or air. In addition, ductless air systems need to meet the Seasonal Energy Efficient Ratio (SEER) as well as the Heating Season Performance Factor (HSPF). Often times, ductless air conditioning systems even exceed the minimums set out by both SEER and HSPF.
Additionally, by being able to independently cool controlled areas within the house, homeowners can save money on their energy bills while reducing excess energy.
In addition to being easy to install, energy efficient, and in effect, cost-effective, mini-split air conditioning systems also provide homeowners with a lot of convenience. For example, ductless air conditioning systems come with a remote to easily control which rooms get cooled.
Moreover, because ductless air conditioners come with two parts: a compressor and a ductless system, the indoor ductless system can be situated as far as 75 feet away from the compressor, which means that homeowners do not have to worry about the noise associated with many basic wall-mounted air conditioners.
Residents from Stewartsville, Phillipsburg, Bethlehem, Nazareth, and surrounding areas looking for an air conditioning system that is neither a heavy wall mounted unit or a central air system should contact an HVAC contractor from Edwin Stipe today!
