When to Consider a Ductless Cooling System

Temperatures are on the rise here in Southern California, and if you live in Orange, CA or any of the nearby communities, you may be looking at air conditioning options for this summer. Now is the perfect time to install a new air conditioning system to help fight the heat, especially if your old system is dying or you’re relying on portable window boxes for your cool air. When considering your options, you may want to think about a ductless mini split system instead of the traditional heating and cooling system.  Ductless systems install single units in each room or section of your house, each one charged with cooling a single room or section. That provides a number of benefits, though not every household can take advantage of them the way they should. Here’s a short guide on when to consider a ductless cooling system.

You Have a Large Home

Larger homes are traditionally much harder to cool adequately than smaller ones, especially with centralized systems. Furthermore, the cooling bills for large homes can be immense during the heat of summer. Ductless systems take care of all of that, allowing you to shut off the cool air in parts of the home you aren’t using, as well as tailoring the temperature to suit the specific needs of each room.

Your Home Can’t Support a Duct System

The other obvious reason to install a ductless system is if your current home can’t support ducts. Homes built before air conditioning may not have the attic space or crawlspace needed to support ducts and even more modern homes can feature architectural quirks that prevent a centralized system from being installed. Most such homes make do with portable air conditioners or window boxes. A ductless system provides comprehensive air conditioning without having to accommodate ducts.
