Ductless air conditioning systems are extremely common in Europe and Japan, where they are in fact currently more popular for installations than the more familiar ducted systems that we often have here in this country. But because of the many benefits that ductless systems offer, they’re becoming more popular each year in the U.S.
If you’re considering installation of a new air conditioning system sometime in the near future, you might wonder if a ductless AC is your best option. Below are a number of situations that are ideal for ductless mini-splits:
New house construction
If you’re building a new home, then a ductless system is definitely the way to go. A ductless system permits you greater freedom in designing your house because you don’t have to worry about creating space for the ducts in the house.
You’re not planning to build a new home, but you are thinking of doing some major remodeling changes to some of the rooms. This is another case where going with a ductless mini split will give you greater freedom—and you’ll end up with a fantastic air conditioning and heating system at the end as well.
When you add on a room to your houses, such as a study or an extra bedroom, it presents a dilemma for the HVAC system. Your current AC and heater are probably not designed to handle the extra space, and this will mean replacing the whole system and extending out the ducts. Or… you can have a ductless mini split attached just for the new space. It’s a simpler, more cost-effective solution.
