Are you satisfied by your current air conditioning system? Do you wish it were more efficient or versatile? Forced-air distribution systems such as central air has long been the standard in the US for keeping homes comfortable during the summer months. But the development and rising popularity of ductless technology has given homeowners another option to consider when searching for a new system installation or replacement. If you’re in the market for a new AC or think that yours might be at the end of its life, then you might want to consider a ductless mini split for your home. But make sure you hire an HVAC technician to install your new ductless air conditioning system in Escondido. Call Cal-West Air Conditioning today.
Let’s take a look at a few reasons why going ductless might be the best option for you:
- Energy efficiency. If you compare the SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) rating between a conventional ducted system and a ductless mini split, you will probably notice a major difference. Ductless systems have much higher energy efficiency ratings because they do not have ductwork to get in between the cool air and your living space. Because they sit directly in your home, they eliminate the middle man and pass the energy savings on to you.
- Versatile zone system. Because a ductless mini split system has multiple indoor air handlers for every outdoor condenser/compressor, it means that you have a built-in zone control system. This means that you can control different areas of your home separately–each has its own thermostat. This is also helpful when trying to avoid temperature disagreements.
- Indoor air quality. For many homeowners, ducts have long been havens for the buildup of dust, dirt, and other debris. Because of how much debris they can accumulate during the course of a cooling season (or the entire year if you also use them for your heating), they can present indoor air quality problems to you and your family members. This may be an issue for those particularly sensitive to airborne contaminants.
