The Benefits of Ductless Cooling

Monday, August 18th, 2014

We are in the dog days of summer here in Alice, TX, and if it’s almost time to replace your air conditioner, you have some choices available to you. One of these choices is a ductless AC system. The word “ductless” can give the impression that ductless cooling in Alice isn’t whole-home air conditioning, but it is, and it has certain benefits that you may want to consider. As with any new air conditioning installation, it’s always best to hire trained professionals for your installation and repair needs, like the ones at Justice Air Conditioning & Heating.

How Does a Ductless System Work?

A ductless air conditioner uses an outdoor unit very similar to a traditional split-system AC, but instead of delivering the cool air via ductwork, a ductless system uses individual indoor blowers. Blowers are mounted in the rooms or areas in which you’d like cooling, and connected to the outdoor unit via a conduit that contains a power line, drainage line and refrigerant tube. The indoor blower contains a fan and coils, and provides cooling by blowing cool air directly. An outdoor unit can support up to 4 indoor blowers.

What Are the Benefits of Ductless Cooling?

The first, and most obvious, benefit is that ductless cooling does not require ductwork to deliver cool air, which allows non-ducted homes to have whole-home cooling. Other benefits include:

  • Better energy efficiency – with individual blowers, you cool only the spaces you need to, and not your entire home. Reducing cooling demands means using less energy, which can save you money in your monthly utility bills.
  • Customized comfort – each blower operates independently, allowing you to set the cooling you want for each particular space.
  • Easy installation – indoor blowers mount easily against walls, and the hole for the conduit is around 3” in diameter. Once the blower is mounted, it just needs to be connected to the outdoor unit via the conduit.
