Ductless Air Conditioner is a Better Option than a Window AC
Not everyone has central air conditioning. Sometimes the ductwork in the home cannot be used or there’s no ductwork at all. People that live in condos have to use the cooling (if provided) supplied by the building and don’t have the option of installing a central AC unit. In these instances, people either live with the hot temperatures or rely on window air conditioners to try and keep them comfortable. But there’s a better option—a ductless air conditioner is more efficient, safer and provides more comfort than a window AC unit.
Window air conditioners aren’t very efficient. They use a lot of energy to run and many times they’re improperly installed—leading to cooled air leaking outside. With a ductless air conditioner, an outdoor condenser is connected to an indoor unit through a small pipe. This helps increase efficiency by decreasing air loss.
There are risks with using a window AC. If not properly installed, it could fall from the window or could be easily pushed inside during a break-in. Additionally, they can overheat or cause electrical problems if plugged into an outlet that’s overloaded. With a ductless mini-split system, a professional technician will expertly and safely install the unit.
A drawback to window air conditioners is that they’re loud and don’t provide even cooling within the space. A ductless air conditioner is quiet in operation and provides total comfort. With multiple indoor units, you can even have zoned cooling throughout your home.
