How Does a Ductless System Differ from Central Air Conditioning?
With a ductless system in place, the amount of cold air that enters a room can be controlled via a wireless remote. This makes it possible to maintain one room or an area of a building at a different temperature from another room or area located within the same building.
With a central air conditioning system, cooled air is distributed to every room via a system of ducts. That makes it impossible to control the amount of cool air in a single room without changing the temperature of every room in the building.
Additionally, since central air conditioning systems depend on air ducts, they carry with them the risks of poor indoor air quality. While air ducts are good at distributing cool air, they only work when they are in top condition. Damaged air ducts can allow pollutants to enter your system and be distributed through the entire home. Since ductless air conditioners do not rely on ducts to bring cool air into the home, indoor air stays clean.
With a ductless mini-split AC system, you can benefit from little to no fluctuation of temperature, and the indoor air quality will be improved overall.
Why Choose a Ductless Cooling System Over a Window AC Unit?
A window AC unit must be placed in a window, which means reduced light and the inability to use the window for fresh air. Additionally, the air conditioner must also be the proper size to fit the window opening. That means that you’ll have to also worry about how you will fill the remaining space around the air conditioner, which could result in even less visibility to the outdoors, as well as an eyesore.
Installing a window AC unit is also a security risk because there isn’t much there to hold it in the window. An intruder could easily remove it from the outside to gain access to the property. Ductless systems, on the other hand, leave all windows available for use and pose no threats to home security. Click here to see a direct comparison; Window Units vs Ductless AC
