Selecting an AC system for your new custom home construction is an important decision, and there are many different options to choose from. Although each of those systems have their own pros and cons that should be carefully considered in your selection, in this article we’re going to focus on the benefits of a ductless air conditioning system. Ductless air conditioners maintain the compressor unit on the exterior of the house but does not rely on ducts to convey the cooled air from that unit to the interior. Instead, a small refrigerant line passes from the compressor to an air handler somewhere inside the home, and that air handler is responsible for shunting the cool air throughout the home. This arrangement has several important benefits.
Easier to Install
Because a ductless air conditioning system does not rely so much on complex ductwork, it is much easier to install and in fact is much more flexible to adjustments that might be needed later. In addition, the lack of ducts helps maintain efficiency and reduces the need for maintenance since there are no ducts to collect dust and require cleaning.
Ductless air conditioning systems are often more conducive to setting up zone control, or delivering different temperatures to different areas of the home. This can help reduce energy costs. Additionally, because of the lack of ductwork, there is a lower energy requirement to deliver cooled air throughout the home, which can also reduce energy consumption.
Improved Air Quality
The lack of ducts in the ductless system will reduce the accumulation of dust or other debris in the air delivery system. This will make the air being delivered throughout the home generally cleaner than with a duct system. Reduced dust and debris in the air will help reduce allergens and other irritants that can exacerbate health problems for you or your family and will give the home a fresh, clean environment.
Overall, there are many benefits to a ductless air conditioning system that you might want to consider when you’re selecting a system for your new home.
