Air conditioners here in Westlake, OH usually follow the traditional forced-air model, with air being cooled in one centralized locale and distributed with a system of ducts. It’s a good system, but it is not the only one out there, and depending upon your home, you make want to look into an alternative. Specifically, ductless mini-split air conditioning provides a useful and popular alternative to the older models, and if you feel like a centralized system might not be for you, a ductless system can offer a number of benefits.
Multiple Small Units Instead of One Big One
Ductless mini-split systems basically divide your home into multiple sections, typically by room though not always. Each section has its own individual unit and thermostat to service it. Each one also features indoor and outdoor components: allowing them to vent hot air outside your home and provide cool air inside.
What Are the Benefits?
Ductless mini-split systems offer an alternative for households that can’t support a duct system or where expanding an existing duct system simply isn’t going to work. Beyond that, the biggest advantage lies in control. If you want one temperature in one room and another household occupant wants a different temperature in another room, a ductless system can support that. Most importantly, however, ductless systems allow you to only cool those parts of the house that you’re using. The rest of the system can be left turned off, saving you a huge amount on monthly bills and saving wear and tear on the system overall. And if one of the units suffers a breakdown, you can simply occupy a part of the house with a functioning unit until repairs can take place.
