What Makes Ductless AC Different?
A ductless air conditioner uses the same basic cooling cycle as a standard air conditioner, but there are several key differences. When combined, these differences make ductless AC units easily the most efficient systems on the market today.
- Variable-Speed Compressor: The compressor “drives” an air conditioner by forcing refrigerant chemicals to become liquid, releasing heat. Most air conditioners have compressors that run at only one or two speeds, which is why they constantly have to cycle on and off. Ductless systems use state-of-the-art variable-speed compressor technology to match your home’s cooling load in real time. That means they can run continuously, which is much more efficient than starting and stopping throughout the day.
- Direct Cooling: Did you know that the average central air conditioner loses about 30 percent of its cooling power to leaks in the duct system? It’s possible to reduce that figure by having your ducts cleaned and sealed, but some loss of cooling power is unavoidable. Ductless AC systems sidestep this problem entirely by delivering their cooling power directly to the living space, saving you a bundle on energy.
Is Ductless Air Conditioning Right For You?
Ductless systems are particularly great for smaller homes, older houses without ductwork, and new home additions where it would be prohibitively expensive to extend the ducts into the space. However, if you’re serious about helping the environment and saving money on your electric bill, you can’t do much better than a ductless system.
