Setting Up Your Ductless Air Conditioning Unit
If you thought that adding air conditioning to and older home was impossible, I am here to tell you that it is very possible by installing a ductless air conditioning unit. A ductless air conditioning unit has many benefits over a ducted unit. The first benefit is the ease of set up for the split ductless air conditioning system.
Benefits Of Ductless Air Conditioning Unit
The first and most important benefit is how easy it is to set up and install. There is no duct work or invasive components to install, you simply need the internal and external units set up according to the manufacturers recommendations. These should be included with the material that came with the ductless air conditioning unit, but if not you can usually get the documents online from the manufacturers website.
In addition to this a ductless air conditioning unit is far better on energy costs then a duct unit. The reason for this is simple physics. It is a lot easier to let gravity move the air from top to bottom then to pump the air from up to down. In a normal duct air conditioning system the evaporator will be in the basement and it will be harder to take that air from down there and bring it up into the house then to make it cold at the top and let it drop.
The other great thing about ductless air conditioning units is how reliable they are. Generally speaking there will be less moving parts and components to a ductless system then one that has to use ducts. By making it easier to work on and maintain, this lowers the overall cost of ownership for a ductless air conditioner unit. Cost per hour of operation for a ductless air conditioning system is far less then a duct one for all of these reasons.
While a ductless system may not be appropriate for everyone if you are looking to add affordable and easy to install air conditioning into an older or new home, a ductless system may be the way to go. There are many other benefits, but for most of us cost is the number one and for this the ductless system will win outright.
Take some time to talk to a local installation company if you do not want to install the system yourself, but in most cases the systems are simple to install and you only need an electrician and plumber at the end to do the final hookup. Again far cheaper then a duct system.
