Going Ductless is the Right Solution for Arizona

Going Ductless is the Right Solution for Arizona

If your heating and air conditioning system is not up to the task of cooling or heating your entire home, going ductless may be a good option for you. Ductless systems have a lot in common with central air conditioning systems. There is a condenser outside and an air handling unit inside. What they do not have in common is air ducts. Ductless systems have both cooling AND heating capability so can be used in both the Summer and Winter and are conveniently operated with a wireless handheld remote. Many units also can be operated with your phone via a special app that you can download on iPhone or Android devices.

A ductless system consists of a wall- or ceiling-mounted indoor unit combined with an outside compressor. Often ductless systems are used where a window unit and baseboard heater might otherwise be used. Unlike window units, ductless systems do not block out a window; they are less visible and not as loud. Ductless systems require only a small hole to be drilled into a wall.

Ductless systems are a great choice for new additions, for rooms that do not get enough cooling or heat, for adding heat and air to a garage, for older homes that do not have a duct system, and for new construction. Ductless systems are also 30-40% more efficient than central air conditioning systems

Single Split vs. Multi-Split Ductless

Ductless systems are a great choice for new additions, for rooms that do not get enough cooling or heat, for adding heat and air to a garage, for older homes that do not have a duct system, and for new construction. Ductless systems are also 30-40% more efficient than central air conditioning systems

With multiple independent air handlers and thermostats in your home, squabbles over temperature settings will be a thing of the past. Beyond the obvious benefit of independent controls, you will have the versatility to spend less for utilities on rooms seldom used. When you are cooking and the kitchen heats up, you can cool down without cooling the entire house.

Improved Efficiency and Life Expectancy

In most homes, about 30% of air is lost through leaky ducts. There is no air loss with ductless. Energy-efficient ductless systems typically reduce utility costs up to 60% compared to central air systems. They pay for themselves over time. Most central air systems have a 12-to-15-year life expectancy. You should expect that a ductless system will provide you with 20 or more years of dependable service. Additionally, all ductless systems have “inverter” compressors which simply means that they adjust their power output from about 40% to 100% based on the cooling or heating need. For example, in a garage application in the Summer if the unit is initially turned on it will operate at 100% capacity to cool the room to the desired temperature then reduce output to 40% to “hold” the that room temperature. Because the unit ramps power output down it uses less electricity. This makes ductless units more efficient than most central air conditioning systems because most central air conditioning systems only have single-stage compressors that are either on at 100% output or off.

Ductless Air Conditioning Prices

Ductless systems are more expensive than window air conditioners. If cost is your only consideration, ductless is not for you. If you factor in that the increased efficiency will pay off with lower utility costs and that a ductless system will last many years longer than a window unit, then the ductless system starts to look better. If you have up to four different rooms that need extra heating and cooling, you can get all four with one outside ductless compressor and four different indoor units. More area coverage in addition to the already-mentioned benefits make ductless even more attractive. For new homes, ductless is usually more expensive than central air systems but less expensive than geothermal. The space savings of eliminating ducts and the efficiency of eliminating leaky ductwork make ductless a serious candidate for a new home.

Whether you need supplemental heating and cooling or a complete new system, ductless may be your best choice. Installation is quicker and simpler than conventional central air with installation taking one day or less.
