Summers in Rome, Georgia, are full of family fun and outdoor activities. But the summer heat can also drive your cooling costs up in no time. Today, many homeowners are considering a switch to ductless AC to reduce costs and enjoy an HVAC system that requires less maintenance. Check out these benefits of ductless AC to find out if it’s the smart choice for your home:
Superior Energy Efficiency
Traditional duct systems consume more energy in order to keep air cool in the complicated ductwork throughout the home. It takes even more energy if your ducts run through a part of the home with little or no insulation, such as an attic or crawl space.
Ductless AC systems use less energy, since the duct issues become irrelevant. In addition, they speed up or slow down rather than shut off and turn on throughout the day. Every time your compressor has to start again, it consumes a lot of energy.
More Control Than Central AC
A ductless system cools your home according to individual zones, allowing you to set varying temperatures for different rooms in the house. This allows you to use much less energy since you can focus on cooling the areas you’re currently using rather than the entire home. For example, you can set the bedroom temperature lower to remain comfortable overnight but set the thermostat higher in other rooms.
Improved Indoor Air Quality
One issue with ductwork is that it can quickly become a breeding ground for harmful substances. Dust, dirt, biological growth,and bacteria can quickly grow inside them. You’ll have to spend more money on maintenance to clean your ducts regularly. When you take out your ductwork and switch to a ductless AC system, it can improve your home’s indoor air quality.
