ductless aircon, aircon options, home aircon optionsDuctless A/C is definitely a solution for all homes to have and are filled with tons of benefits. From making your home energy efficient and keeping where you want cool rather than wasting the air all over the home. But when is it the ideal situation for ductless? Here are 5 times a ductless A/C is the solution!

No existing ductwork

If you are buying a home with no ductwork or just built a home with no ductwork don’t panic. Adding ductwork to your home with no ductwork is very expensive and the best thing to do in this situation is buying a ductless A/C. They are not cheap but it is most certainly cheaper than having duct work done in your entire home. You can see the average cost of ductless units here.

Thermostat drama

Do you find your family constantly fighting over the thermostat? Have you come to the realization that it isn’t your family that’s causing the drama it’s the thermostat? Chances are high that your thermostat is causing all the drama. Going ductless is the solution in this case. Ductless A/C is ideal for creating independent temperature zones in different rooms. You no longer have to deal with the thermostat drama because in one room it’s colder than the other!

Single room cooling

Let’s say your kids moved out or maybe you realized that your family doesn’t use the rooms that are being constantly cooled with your central air conditioner. Either way, you want to eliminate this problem, because you have realized that your energy bill is up to the roof! The solution is ductless A/C. You no longer have to worry about your energy bill going to the extreme side because with ductless A/C you can control which room you want to be cooled or which room you don’t want to be cooled. The worst thing you can do is shut off your HVAC grilles in the empty rooms because this creates pressure imbalances and mold problems which can be a pain to get rid of.

Garage, sunrooms, new additions

Whether you are building a new garage sun room or maybe even a “man cave” it can be very costly to continue your ductwork to reach the room and it’s way too hot to stick a fan in there so what can you do? Ductless A/C is the solution once again. The last thing you want is to spend money on ductwork to connect the man cave when the guys decide to smoke an occasional cigar and the smoke goes throughout the house. The main benefit of ductless here is that it will be properly sized for the new space and you won’t have to steal air from other rooms. You also won’t be overloading your old HVAC system.

Broken HVAC system

Don’t even bother paying a ton of money to fix your HVAC system. If the system itself is broken or the ductwork is poorly made as you soon realized, don’t bother because it will cost a whole lot more money to replace and redo than it will to just add a ductless A/C to the mix. In this situation, you can turn to a good ol’ ductless A/C!

The bottom line

Your comfort, humidity, and long-term reliability should all be factors in making the smart decision of going ductless. Consider those situations something of the past because from here on forward you will not have to deal with any of these situations you have been dealing with. It’s time to think of the future and it’s time to save money in the long run, go ductless!
