Converting to Ductless Air Conditioning

Converting Old Homes to Ductless Air Conditioning

CategoriesTips

Older homes are full of character, but unfortunately, many of them aren’t retrofitted to accommodate most modern-day home comfort appliances. Luckily, even if your home doesn’t have pre-existing ductwork, you can enjoy all the benefits of a central air system by converting your home to ductless air conditioning.

Increased Efficiency
If you live in a home that’s 50 years old or older that doesn’t have ductwork, odds are you are relying on window air conditioning units, which can be notoriously inefficient. One of the first benefits you will notice after converting to a ductless air conditioning system is the money you’ll save on your monthly utility bills. Ductless air conditioning systems are generally energy-star rated, which essentially means they use less energy than other systems with the same function. One of the main reasons they are more efficient is because they generate cool air using heat pumps, which require minimal energy to operate.

No Need for Ductwork Installation
Converting to a ductless air conditioning system can save you money on more than just your utility bills though, the installation costs are much lower than other cooling options as well. Forced air systems are the only other effective cooling option besides converting to a ductless air conditioner, but an older home without ductwork will require serious renovations to install one. Ductless systems on the other hand can be easily installed, and the installation process doesn’t require any serious renovations to be done. Other than the installation of the indoor units, the only change to your home will be a few holes a couple of inches wide, which are used to run the refrigeration piping and electrical wiring from the indoor unit, or units, to the outdoor unit.

Customizable
Another excellent benefit that comes with converting your old home to a ductless air conditioning system is the ability to create cooling zones. Ductless cooling systems use a series of indoor units to effectively cool your home, and the various units can be controlled independently, which means you can control the temperatures in the respective rooms independently as well. This allows different members of your household to set the temperature to whatever makes them comfortable, or you can shut off the units in rooms you don’t use as much. This feature will increase your home comfort, but it also has the added benefit of improving your ductless system’s efficiency and saving you money on your monthly bills.
