Is Ductless Air Conditioning The Right Choice For You?

There is nothing like air conditioning for beating the heat and humidity. A wise consumer will carefully consider his options before he chooses what kind of A/C unit is suitable. Central air may seem like the perfect answer, but it can have its drawbacks:

There are other options that can target specific areas and provide precise climate control.

What Else Is There?

Naturally, they look for new and better options. In recent years, ductless air conditioning systems have been growing in popularity, and for good reason. They provide efficient and exacting control, maximizing comfort in large and small rooms. True, a window air conditioning unit can provide comfort, but operating costs tend to run high, and a window unit carries a lot of other disadvantages with it.

Window AC Units

There are several reasons why a window air conditioning unit is not the best choice.


inefficient window air conditionerAs the name states, a window AC unit is installed in an actual window. Stop and consider how easily the security of a home is breached with a small AC unit in a window. Thieves know that they are a weak point in an otherwise secure home. A professionally installed ductless AC system is not placed in an opening in your home. This prevents the potential access of thieves. Furthermore, the workings of the system, both inside and out, are located in an out-of-the-way spot. Its location has nothing to do with home access points.

Reduced Light And Visibility

When a cool summer night comes along, it is nice to open the window. This allows some fresh outdoor air inside of your home. A window air conditioner literally eliminates that possibility. Despite the fact that these units are meant to be taken in and out of the window, it is not a simple matter. They are extremely heavy and awkwardly bulky. Also, they are meant to be moved in or out only once or twice a year. Furthermore, you should ask yourself some questions. Do you want to take pleasure in the fresh light of the morning sun? Are you the kind of person who enjoys the glow of a full moon? Do you want the chance to simply relax and watch the world go by? These are some of the pleasures you forfeit with a cumbersome air conditioner in your window.

The Limited Reach Of A Window Unit

A window unit provides comfort. However, its reach is limited. Sometimes, by strategically placing a fan, it partially cools an adjoining area. However, its range is still limited. The cooling zones of a ductless system are predetermined by you. In the perfect world of ductless AC, you choose the areas you want cooled. Also, you determine just how cool you want those areas to be.

Window Units Are Loud

No one wants an air conditioner that competes with the activities that you enjoy. This includes watching TV, conversations, or even the quiet of a room while you read a book or sleep. A window unit is a complete system, with a motor and compressor, both noise makers right there in the room with you. A ductless system, however, keeps the noise outside where the compressor is installed. Also, the only noise you may hear coming from your ductless unit is the slight noise of the air handler. This helps you enjoy your home at a reduced noise level.
