The Advantages of a Ductless Air System

If you still think a central AC system is your only option for whole-house comfort during the summer months, we have some terrific news for you, especially if you’re in the market for a new or replacement home cooling system.

Central air, for all its advantages, isn’t for everyone. Perhaps your house can’t support air ducts, or the cost to add them is currently beyond your budget comfort level.  Or, maybe you don’t need a whole-house system but, instead, are looking for an efficient way to heat and cool your basement or new addition.  In each such instance, ductless air is the answer.

As the name suggests, you don’t need air ducts to install a ductless air system. Instead, air is distributed within the heated and cooled spaces by wall blowers connected to one or more outside condensing units. Each outside unit can support up to five wall blowers, in fact.

Here’s just some of what you’ll appreciate about a new ductless air system:

  • Ease of maintenance.
  • Quiet, remote-control operation.
  • Greater energy efficiency vs. central air since there are no air ducts that conditioned air can escape from.
  • Can work with your current heating and cooling systems or take the place of both.

Many of our customers have purchased ductless air systems to replace their window air conditioners for greater home security.  That’s because a house with window units can be more easily breached than one without.

Is a ductless air system right for you?  Well, there’s only one way to find out, and that’s by contacting Optimum Air to schedule a free in-home comfort consultation and new system proposal. You can count on us to recommend what’s best for your home and budget, now and always.
