Get Your Ducts in a Row
Many of us would no longer consider air conditioning a luxury but a necessity! The emergency air conditioning service calls that we received on Christmas Day two years ago and in March this year are proof of this; we can’t live without it. But for many homes where ductwork proves to be tricky, homeowners are still using window units or going without even though there is another option; a ductless system.
The 4 most common situations in which ductless systems are used as a solution:
- As a supplement to a central AC system: for spaces that were added on to a house or are located at the furthest end of the existing ductwork
- For rooms that need additional heating & cooling such as a sunroom or for a space that requires independent temperature control such as a home office
- As a cost efficient alternative for an additional living space such as bonus rooms, studios, cottages & barns, garages, finished attics & basements
- For homes/spaces that cannot accommodate conventional ductwork: older homes and antique homes typically do not have space to install ductwork
In addition to the cooling benefits of a ductless system, these ultra-high efficiency units can also be used as a supplemental heating source which is a great way to offset your energy bill in late fall and early spring when the days are cooler.
