Advantages of Ductless Air Conditioning & Heating Systems

Ductless air conditioning and heating systems are fast becoming the preferred choice for homes and offices throughout New Jersey and after reading through the advantages these systems offer, it’s not hard to see why:

  • Easy installation – Unlike traditional central air systems which can take up to a week for an experienced crew to install, ductless systems can generally be fully installed in just one day.
  • Cost-effective – By using less power when heating or cooling a space, you’ll save money every month on your energy bill. You can also control the individual temperature of each room, significantly reducing unnecessary heating and cooling in unused rooms.
  • Smaller – These systems are designed to be compact, allowing them to fit comfortably into smaller living spaces and be stored easily if needed.
  • Quiet – Traditional systems can make a lot of noise, interrupting sleep and intruding on conversations. Ductless systems are much quieter, making only a low hum that is easily ignored or drowned out.
  • Easy to operate – Unlike central air, you can usually control the air temperature quickly and easily with a ductless unit with a simple remote control. This quickly adjusts temperature, mode and other settings to give you instant results without having to move.

Your guide to buying a ductless air conditioner

When shopping for the best HVAC system for your home or office, there are three factors you should prioritize:

  1. Installation: You will find there are many different styles, shapes and sizes of ductless systems on the market. Some are simple wall mounted units while others can de disguised as art. There are also ceiling units that can be recessed and largely concealed from view.
  2. Cooling zones: A single zone ductless system will have one indoor unit (the evaporator/air handler) and an outside unit (the condenser). This is ideal for people who only want to control the air temperature of a single room or a small apartment. Multiple zone units will have more indoor units and need to be placed carefully in order to properly cover larger spaces/homes.
  3. BTUs: Also known as British Thermal Units, these are the units of power required to cool a certain area. The bigger your space, the more BTUs are needed. This is easy to calculate for single zone systems, but more complex for multiple zone systems.
