Is Ductless AC Worth It?

May 8, 2021 | Blog

If you’re considering making the switch to a ductless AC system, there are many benefits that come along with it. Ductless AC units do the exact same job as an AC unit with ductwork, but they allow for improved overall energy efficiency for years to come.

At Ball Heating and Air Conditioning, we want you to be fully-informed on if a mini-split (also known as ductless) system is the right choice for you. Read on to learn more about the benefits of ductless AC!

Long-Term Efficiency

The saying “you get what you pay for” is very applicable to ductless AC units – they may be a bit more expensive when first installing them, but they are highly efficient and last for a very long time. They allow for more effective airflow throughout your home, allowing for a cheaper energy bill month after month. This provides the homeowner a way to cut down on their energy bill and save more money over time. The amount of money the unit can save you on your energy bill over time could be worth much more than the initial cost.

Peace and Quiet

Any time your standard AC unit turns on, a loud “whoosh” of air can be heard in the background and all throughout the home as air circulates. When there are no ducts, the loud noise that creates a background soundtrack in your home is eliminated.

This can bring peace and quiet to your home that you wouldn’t have been able to achieve with ductwork. Additionally, with no loud noise accompanying the AC unit turning on, you’re more likely to identify any unusual noise or issue that might be occurring within your unit.

Reliable Air Flow

No ductwork means no potential airflow blockage. This gives your AC unit a straight, unblocked path to give every room cold air. Without having to worry about air ducts, there is no need to worry about broken, leaking or clogged air ducts preventing conditioned air from reaching you in your home. With no blockage to your airflow, you’re able to cool your home off faster when you need it most – adding to the overall comfort of your home.

Low Maintenance 

The process of maintaining a ductless system is similar to one with ductwork, minus the large financial cost of consistently keeping the ductwork sealed and having the airflow continue a steady stream all year. Without the burden of ductwork, ductless AC systems are the most efficient units when given routine maintenance.

At Ball Heating and AC, our professionals are trained and highly skilled specialists to ensure that your ductless unit is running without a hitch. Our professionals know the ins and outs of every kind of AC unit, allowing you the peace of mind that your AC is in good hands. We offer a thorough AC unit checkup to ensure every single part of your AC unit is prepared to handle any heatwave that comes with the turning of the seasons.
