3 Reasons to Consider a Ductless Air Conditioner

We find ourselves already embroiled in some pretty hot weather, so you’ve hopefully got a great air conditioner in place that is functioning as reliably as it is efficiently. Should you find yourself in need of an air conditioning replacement, though, or if you are investing in a cooling system for a brand new property, we strongly recommend that you give the use of a ductless air conditioner in Des Moines, IA some serious consideration. As you’ll learn in the following post, these types of systems have a lot to offer that other options cannot match.


Unless you have a zone control system in place, a central air conditioning system forces you to cool the entirety of your home to just one set temperature throughout. This is not ideal, as you don’t really need to be cooling unused rooms and areas to the same temperature as those that you use frequently. Plus, different people are comfortable at different temperatures. Because you can set the individual blowers of a ductless system independently of one another, you can take greater control over the way in which you cool your home.


Does your home lack a ductwork system? Have you been making do with inefficient window air conditioner units, because you don’t want to deal with the hassle of having ductwork installed? If so, know that a ductless air conditioning system is a great option for you. These systems use individual wall-mounted blowers to cool rooms directly, meaning that you don’t need any ductwork at all. They connect to a single outdoor unit via a simple conduit.


Ductless mini splits use heat pump technology in order to double as heating systems during the winter season. The refrigerant cycle is reversed, and you can use heat absorbed from the air outside in order to warm your home. Give us a call today if you want efficient heating from the very same system that you use to cool your home during the summer season.
