Ductless air conditioning systems provide a cost-effective way to cool your Houston, Texas, home, especially if it doesn’t have ductwork or enough space for it. These compact systems include an indoor and an outdoor unit and can be a great addition to your garage, home office, and difficult-to-reach enclosed spaces. Ductless systems are quick and easy to install, and they feature quiet and energy-efficient operation.
Ductless mini-split systems use small pipes to connect the indoor and outdoor units. Unlike in traditional ducted systems, neither do you need to build the ductwork nor do you need to rebuild walls and ceilings around it. This saves you a good amount of time, space, and money. If you are installing only one or two units, you can have it up and running in a matter of hours. If you have a large home that requires several units, you can take up installation in stages in order to minimize disruption to your schedule.
Ductless air conditioners use smaller compressors, which make them far quieter than traditional systems with rumbling, loud compressors. They are also less noisy than rattling window AC units because the unit housing the compressor is placed outdoors. This makes your indoor environment more pleasant and comfortable.
Ductless systems are compact and consume less power. They are capable of cooling specific areas, which means there is no energy wastage in cooling unoccupied rooms. They also prevent loss of efficiency, since they directly circulate cooled air into the room. Modern ductless systems use R410A refrigerant, which has zero impact on ozone layer depletion. An Energy Star-certified ductless air conditioner can save you up to 30 percent in energy costs. For optimal efficiency, be sure to install the right-sized unit at the best location. You can further optimize your ductless system through zoning devices and programmable thermostats.
