Can Your Home Benefit from Ductless Air Conditioning?

Monday, May 22nd, 2017

ductless-air-conditioningSpring is the time when outdated air conditioners get replaced for new models. It makes all kinds of sense to do so now: summer has not yet arrived and you have an opportunity to start enjoying the improved efficiency and other benefits of a new system as soon as the weather becomes hot. Most of us are used to centralized air conditioners, which generate cool air in a single location and then blow it into our homes via a series of ducts. They’re safe and efficient systems, but they aren’t the only type of air conditioners for sale, and if your home needs something a little different, you would to well to consider them.

In cases where central air doesn’t make a good fit for you, we often recommend ductless air conditioning systems as a viable alternative. They can provide a number of benefits in the right circumstances.

How Difficult Is It to Install a Ductless Air Conditioning System?

Monday, May 4th, 2015

Ductless air conditioning systems are less complex in layout than standard central ACs because they do not require a ventilation network for the distribution of cooled air. They also use smaller units to do their job (multiple mini-air handlers rather than a single large indoor evaporator and air handler). This makes ductless air conditioning systems easier to install than their counterparts that use ducts.

When Ductless Air Conditioning Systems Are Excellent Home Cooling Choices

Monday, April 6th, 2015

You may have heard about some of the benefits of going with a ductless air conditioning system, also known as a ductless mini split system: they save space, work at high energy efficiency, and avoid the issues that damaged and dirty ductwork can create. But a ductless AC is not always the top option for every customer, and at Intelligent Air Services we work closely with homeowners to help them find the best method for cooling down their home. If you are interested in installing a ductless air conditioning system for your home in Austin, TX or the greater Austin area, contact us today and we’ll help you make the choice about the best AC for your needs.

To help you get a sense of when a ductless air conditioning system is a good option, here are five ideal situations for going ductless:

  • New home construction: Are you planning on a building a new house? Having a ductless air conditioning system put in is a great way to free up space in your home that would otherwise go to the ventilation system. This will also give you more freedom when it comes to designing the house just the way you like it.
  • Older and historic homes: If you live in a house that has no room in it for ductwork at all, going with a ductless mini split frees you up from needing to use inefficient window units to provide home cooling and give you the benefits of central cooling.
  • Add-on rooms: Thinking of expanding your home with a new bedroom, study, or game room? You don’t have to drastically rework the current ventilation system to accommodate it: you can have a ductless mini split air conditioning system installed specifically to service the new space.
  • Remodeling: If you are remodeling your home, a ductless air conditioning system gives you similar freedom to design the space as you want without concern for a complex ventilation system.
  • People with allergies live in your house: Because ductwork might pick up contamination that can trigger asthma and allergies, going with a ductless system will help you reduce the danger to people in your home who suffer from these conditions.
