How are you keeping cool in your older home this summer? You might think that your air conditioning options are limited to a noisy, leaky window unit. But, there’s good news. Even though you have an older home, you can still enjoy the benefits of a ductless air conditioning system. Here’s why your older home will benefit from a ductless cooling system:
Easy to Install
Unlike central air conditioning, ductless systems don’t require breaking into walls, tearing up floors, or punching through the ceilings to be installed. Instead, ductless systems utilize one or more small indoor cooling units that are mounted high on a wall and a larger outdoor compressor unit. The lack of deconstruction required for installation makes it a great choice for older or historical homes.
Eliminate Bulky Air Ducts
The biggest benefit of a ductless system is that you don’t have to worry about the unpleasant sight of air ducts running throughout your home. Ductless systems, as the name suggests, don’t use air ducts. Instead, they send the air they produce directly into the room in which they are located. That means you can control the temperature in individual rooms.
For starters, ductless cooling systems are less expensive than buying a new central heating and cooling system. Even for large homes, homeowners can expect to pay less for installing a ductless heating and cooling system. Additionally, since ductless systems allow homeowners to control the temperature in each room and shut off units in rooms they aren’t using, they can expect to have lower energy costs, which is ideal for older homes.
Older homes were not built with energy efficiency in mind. Dealing with drafty windows and doors is difficult enough. You can make your home more energy-efficient with a ductless system. You have the ability to control the temperature in every room. That means you can turn on the heat in one room while keeping a unit in another room off. Ductless systems save you energy and save you money.
