What’s more southern than sweet tea and Braves baseball in the summertime? Air conditioning! Living in the south means that air conditioning is not a luxury but a necessity. Unfortunately, those dog days of summer can sometimes lead to expensive power bills and overused AC units. At Empire HVAC, we would like to tell you about an alternative to traditional central air condition units: ductless air conditioning.
If you are looking at changing the way you cool (and heat) your home, here are some of the advantages of ductless air conditioning to consider:
Primarily, ductless air conditioning provides flexibility
Ductless AC units are small in size and allow flexibility for zoning or heating and cooling individual rooms. No more fighting over the thermostat. Ductless units give you the control to set each room or zone at the precise temperature you want, all at the touch of a button.
Gone are the days of the window units that sound like freight trains coming through your home. Ductless units are quiet, easy to install and take up very little space in your home.
Ductless systems can save you money
Who looks forward to paying that soaring power bill in July and August? When you replace the inefficient window air conditioners and the traditional central systems in your southern home with a ductless system, you can cut your home’s cooling and heating costs by 30 percent. Additionally, as the name suggests, there is no need for ductwork installation. This means you are eliminating the loss of energy in the ductwork resulting in cooling your home more efficiently.
Ductless air conditioning is not a new concept
A little known fact is that ductless air conditioning has been around for more than 30 years. These systems are used worldwide and have been proven to be an effective, efficient means of beating that unrelenting summer heat.
Ductless systems provide cooling AND heating
While the heat of southern summers can make you forget all about winter, those months are coming. The same energy efficiency and personal control afforded by the air conditioning also applies to warming your home. The same ductless systems that work to cool you off in the summer can also heat your home in the winter.
In short, ductless air conditioning units are a comprehensive and cost-efficient method for controlling the temperatures in your home.
