Solve Your AC Issues With This System

woman-in-front-of-fanAs the temperatures rise here in the Big Apple, you might find yourself relying on the air conditioning system a lot more to keep your home cool and comfortable. If you have an older-style air conditioner, you might begin facing many problems because the unit is not properly cooling your home.

Are you battling uneven temperatures in your house? Do you find the lack of zone control annoying? Is there a new room addition to your home under progress? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you might be wondering what you could do about your AC problem.

We suggest investing in a ductless AC unit for your home and coming to us for your air conditioning installation in Staten Island, NY.

What is a Ductless System?

A ductless air conditioner consists of up to four indoor units and an outdoor unit. The indoor unit acts as a blower that you can install on a wall or ceiling, and it is connected to the exterior unit. A pipe system connects the two components, cycling refrigerant and siphoning away excess condensation. With this setup a ductless system can effortlessly cool one or more rooms in the home without installing any ductwork or connecting it to existing ductwork.

Ideal Spots For Ductless Air Conditioners

Investing in a ductless air conditioning system comes with its set of advantages.  Where you install the new unit can make a world of difference in how effective it can be to keep your home cool and comfortable. Here are some of the situations in which you could consider installing a ductless mini-split air conditioning system in your home.

Older Homes

Central air conditioners became more commonplace during the 70s and 80s. Before this, homes were not designed to accommodate extensive duct networks. Many older buildings use ductless systems because installing these doesn’t involve making major changes (such as adding ducts) to enjoy cooling.

Hard To Cool Rooms

If you have a central air conditioning system that works well throughout most of the house, but there is a room more susceptible to the heat, you could consider adding a ductless mini-split for limited use. Installing a ductless system in that part of the house could allow your new AC to supplement the central air conditioner and provide better comfort.

New Room

If you have recently embarked on a home improvement project and added a new room, you might be considering making structural changes to accommodate the ductwork for the existing central AC. However, another use for your ductless mini-split could be using it to cool the new area without the need to redesign the ducts or installing a new AC to accommodate the new room. You can enjoy ideal temperatures in the new room without needing to completely overhaul the cooling system of the entire home.

You need professionals to install a new ductless air conditioning system. That is what our team is here to provide. You can also consult our experts to help you decide on which unit you should get for your home.
