A Guide To Ductless AC


As a homeowner, one of the most expensive purchases you’ll make is a new air conditioner, so it’s important that you get the right product to suit your needs. With the combined product cost and installation fee, use the wrong company and you could be paying out hundreds if not thousands more than you need to. Over the years at Airmax we’ve heard some horror stories of product damage and poor installation that not only left residents without air conditioning but also had a negative impact on their energy bills and structure of their home. After spotting a recurring theme in these experiences, we began offering individually tailored air conditioning and heating solutions based on the two most important things – expert advice and customer service.

To save you the hassle of wading through websites and brochure we’ve broken down below why ductless air conditions are one of the most popular types of air conditioning for homeowners, so that even before you call us you have an idea what to expect and what you may need, so you feel confident before making that all important purchase.

Why Buy: Ductless Mini-Split Air Conditioners

The most obvious reasons to go with a ductless mini-split system is that you don’t need to have ducts installed in your home. This is a big plus for many homeowners as ductwork can be time-consuming and expensive, particularly in older properties where they’re just not structurally built for that. When your technician comes to assess your home for a new home comfort system they’ll be sure to tell you that aside from the performance of your new unit itself, the location, type and specification of the system all matter as these things contribute to energy usage, bills and the value of your home.

The Benefits

The mini-split keeps your home at a constant temperature rather than turning on and off like other types of air conditioning. You might be thinking this doesn’t sound cost effective, but in the winter it works in reverse absorbing heat from outdoors to heat your home. Being smaller wall units they offer direct cooling in specific areas, so if you find that one part of your home is generally warmer than the rest, that’s where a technician would suggest its placement. Ductless systems are considered to be one of the most efficient forms of air conditioning and they’re also a lot more compact than central air, ceiling or window units.


The Drawbacks

The initial installation of ductless air conditioners requires true professional skill and knowledge not only does an HVAC contractor need to assess the location as traditional properties have thicker walls but also you have to ensure you purchase the right size unit for optimum comfort and temperature control. So you really need to use a company that understands all aspects of ductless residential air conditioning and heating as you want to ensure you get the best rate and service on a premium system that is installed with a full warranty in case of any problems. A little bit of care now goes a long way in the life of your AC, you’ll reap the rewards for years to come if the job is done properly by professionals you can trust.
