One newer method of cooling a Southport home is by installing and using ductless air conditioning. Cooling a house in the Southport area can be expensive at times. During summer heat waves (just around the corner) a cooling system gets used more often, if not running 24/7. There are many different kinds of systems to choose from.
Some Southport air conditioning is better than others, depending on the type of structure, your overall heated square footage, and the average use, among other things. The ductless air conditioning system has become increasingly more popular with homeowners in recent years. You can inquire with us at A+ Heating, Cooling – Electrical to see if this option would be a good fit for your home.
Here are a few ways that ductless air conditioning can save you money and make your Southport home more comfortable:
Ductless Air Conditioning Consumes Less Energy
Ductless air conditioning systems generally consume a lot less energy than traditional central heating and air systems. They can be zoned for different rooms of a house and it takes less energy and effort to heat and cool them. Traditional central heating and cooling systems can lose up to a quarter of their efficiency or more while pushing air to all of the rooms in a home. Ductless air conditioning systems also require less space, so they require less effort in cooling, as well as heating, different rooms.
These Systems Require Less Maintenance
Central air conditioning and heating systems move air through a network of ducts throughout a home. These air ducts can frequently become dirty or even clogged and typically require annual maintenance. Ductless air conditioning systems don’t have that to deal with. They require a lot less maintenance and are generally easier to clean. They’re also better for your indoor air quality because they don’t need to be cleaned as often which can kick up dust and other particulates. There are fewer chances of dust, dirt and other particles or allergens contaminating the air in your home because you don’t have to clean the ductless air conditioning systems or filters on a regular basis.
Ductless Air Conditioning Installation is Affordable
While the installation costs of a ductless air conditioning system will vary depending on the number of wall units, thermostats and lines used, overall these systems are very cost-effective to add to your home. The money saved by heating and cooling your home efficiently can add up to significant savings over time. Installation is usually quite simple, doesn’t take a lot of time or effort and also saves money versus the installation costs for central air and heating systems like heat pumps as well as other popular systems. You can install your system anywhere in the home. It doesn’t need to be in a specific room or require significant construction or renovation in your home to make the system fit. Your new system can be installed in a matter of hours if you’re handy enough.

Ductless Air is Environmentally Friendly
Ductless air conditioning systems only use energy in rooms when they are in use. They typically use less energy overall than other types of heating and cooling systems thereby reducing your carbon footprint on the earth. Such systems are more environmentally friendly because of their energy efficiency, producing less waste while not producing exhaust, smoke or other chemicals which can harm plants and animals.
In addition to being more friendly to the environment, many ductless systems operate using remote-controlled thermostats that allow you to zone your home at different temperatures. For example, you can raise the cooling temperature in rooms that are rarely used or currently unoccupied and lower the thermostat in high-traffic rooms or bedrooms on hot summer days. Some systems can even be controlled by using a computer, tablet or smartphone. Most systems allow for about a half-dozen or more rooms in a home to be heated and cooled by using split ducts or zones, adding even more savings for the environment.
Ductless Air Conditioning Provides Individual Comfort
Not everyone in your home will like their room at the same temperature. One of the benefits of ductless air conditioning and heating systems is that each room can be controlled by different people. Everyone can create their own personal comfort zone whenever they prefer. No more fighting over the thermostat controls or worrying about high cooling bills in the summer, or high heating bills during the winter months. These systems are efficient enough to accommodate everyone’s needs.
Ductless Air Conditioning is Quiet
Because most of the components of traditional ductless cooling systems are placed outside your home, you may not even hear them when the system is running. Many of them are designed to be as noise-free as possible, unlike other systems where you can hear the air or fan throughout the whole house when they turn on and start cooling or heating.
These are just some of the many benefits of having a ductless air conditioning and heating system in your home. These systems are very versatile and can fit just about any need and budget. They may not be the answer for everyone, but they are a very affordable and effective alternative. You can install the system yourself, or have a professional install it for you. Ductless systems provide comfort and peace of mind for you, your family members and guests to your home. They can also be part of a long-term energy efficiency program. They’re a great way to save money as you brave the blazing summer heat, frigid winter winds and all the seasons in between.
