Is Ductless AC Worth It?

April 25, 2022 | Blog

Ductless AC Explained

Traditional AC units require a professional to install, are not as efficient in extreme weather, are prone to power outages and use substantial energy. For any of these reasons or any others, you may be considering adding a ductless ac to increase performance.

If you’ve been pondering this decision lately, but feel like you need a little more information, we’ve got you covered! At Absolute Comfort Air, we are passionate about helping you find the best solutions for your Barrow County home. We’ve created this guide to teach you everything we know about ductless AC. Read below to learn more!

What is Mini-Split AC?

While there are different options for ductless AC such as portable and window units, this article covers ductless mini-split systems. A mini-split is a compact unit that is designed to cool or heat a small area of your home.

They work by drawing air in through one or two vents similar to traditional packaged systems, while being much smaller and taking up less room.

The term “split” means that the system consists of both an indoor and outdoor component. The indoor unit or “head” will be placed somewhere near a door, with refrigerant lines connecting it to the outdoor unit that will be placed on a concrete slab.

This system requires no ducts, so no extra construction will have to be done to make room for this new addition.

What Are the Benefits of Mini Split Air Conditioning?

Before deciding if mini-split air conditioning is right for you, you want to know how these units compare to traditional (or central air conditioning) systems. If you’ve had central AC for a while, you know that they do have their benefits as well as their faults.

But what can ductless air conditioning offer you that centralized AC cant?

Extreme Efficiency

Did you know that ductwork degrades the flow of AC? It’s true! Any small amount of wear and tear in your ducts can make your HVAC system work harder than it has to heat and cool your home, creating headaches for you and increasing the amount you pay on your energy bill.

Ductless mini-splits use inverter technology, which means that these systems can adjust heating and cooling output based on the conditions of the room that which the indoor units are located in.

This intelligent technology can end up saving you on your monthly energy bill and repairs throughout the year.

Zone Control

In a ductless configuration, each room in your home has its own independent cooling source. This means that your family no longer has to fight over touching the thermostat, and everyone can set their preferences the way they want.

This easy zone control may just be what you and your family are searching for in preparation for those warm Barrow County summers.

Easy Initial Installation

As you now know, mini-splits are less intrusive than traditional centralized air conditioning. The installation for them is simple and painless, but should always be done by a professional.

They can be positioned in a variety of places including:

  • Bedrooms
  • Living rooms
  • Kitchens
  • Garage conversions
  • Finished attics
