Is Ductless Air Conditioning Really That Great?

ductless-acDuctless air conditioning this… Ductless air conditioning that… It seems like everyone only has good things to say about ductless air conditioners. But come on, are they really that special? Are they really everything they’re chalked up to be?

To be honest, yes. They really are. They’re highly efficient, have a long lifespan, and offer unmatched control and flexibility—all while providing satisfactory comfort in both heating and cooling.

But that doesn’t mean they’re right for every home!

The resounding praise you’ve heard about ductless air conditioning in Panama City Beach mostly comes from people whose homes and needs are perfectly compatible with them.

Instead of asking whether one type of air conditioner is better or worse than another, we invite you to consider whether this system is right for your home and your needs. We’ll help you find out by asking a few questions:

Does Your Home Have Hot Spots?

Many homes experience the phenomena of hot spots. These are the rooms of your home that stubbornly remain the same temperature, even when the rest of the home has sufficiently cooled down. But lowering the temperature of the home even further is not efficient or effective in fixing these areas.

In these cases, you can benefit from a ductless air conditioner. Whether you want to install just a single unit specifically for that room, or if you’re planning to convert your entire home to ductless AC, you can find your solution with this system.

Does Your Family Engage in Thermostat Wars?

Are you constantly telling your kids to keep their hands off the thermostat? Do you find yourself coming out of your bedroom or office to adjust the temperature, just to have someone in the living room come out a few minutes later to change it?

“Thermostat wars” happen simply because everyone has their own preferences for room temperature. This effect is compounded depending on which rooms you’re dealing with and how many people are in those rooms at the same time.

Regardless of the exact situation, ductless air handlers come with their own temperature controls. Everyone can live according to their own temperatures.

Do You Favor Efficiency Above All Else?

Ductless air conditioners come at a higher price than other systems. A major reason for this is the fact that you’re installing a separate device for each room or section of the home. However, if you’re on a quest for the most efficient system on the market, then ductless is the best choice.

Here are a few ways that you can rely on ductless for your efficiency needs:

  • You can choose which rooms to provide cooling power to. Compare this to a central AC, which can only cool the entire home.
  • No risk of air loss through damaged or leaky ductwork (they’re ductless, after all!).
  • During winter, ductless units offer efficient heating that rivals that of natural gas furnaces (this is especially true in our climate).
