What is a Ductless Air Conditioning System?

Many New Jersey residents have probably never considered investing in a ductless air conditioning service for their Morris County residence. They may not even realize that they can get the same heating and cooling they can expect from a traditional HVAC system minus all the renovations needed to install ducts into the building.

However, many benefits come with a ductless air conditioning system which can make this oversight a costly one for homeowners as the summer approaches.

Here’s what you need to understand about ductless air conditioning systems:

How Does It Work?

A ductless air conditioning system is comprised of a wall unit, an outdoor condenser, and connections between the two. By designing the system to utilize so few parts, the air conditioner operates in “zones” within the home, rather than trying to cool down the entire house at once. 

Most ductless systems can allow up to five zones to operate out of a single condenser, but you’re also able to add an additional condenser to allow for even more areas to be covered.

Can It Operate Across My Home?

The short answer is “yes,” a ductless system can definitely work to cool down your home just as well as a traditional air conditioning system.

However, it largely depends on your home’s current design, the distance between the units, and how many zones you want to have installed that will determine whether a ductless system is the best option. Usually, the more complicated it is to connect different zones to the condenser, the harder it will be to make the system work well for your home.

What is the Benefit of a Ductless System?

A ductless system provides you two core benefits: you’re able to set different temperatures for different zones, and you’ll end up saving money on your energy bills in the long-term.

With a ductless system, each zone can operate independently, making it easy for you to turn off the system when no one’s around or control the temperatures of different rooms independently. The advantage of this is that you’ll be able to enjoy a comfortable room temperature without expending unnecessary energy throughout the rest of the house.

In addition to saving money by prioritizing the different zones within your ductless system, you’ll also reduce your utility bills by enjoying a more energy-efficient system. Traditional HVAC systems that rely on ducts usually have to use more energy to reach the set temperature because a lot of energy gets wasted as the air travels through the ducts themselves. However, with a ductless system, you leave those inefficiencies behind, making it far easier (and cheaper) for you to manage your home’s temperature.
