What Are The Pros And Cons Of A Ductless Air Conditioner?

For those who have only lived in older homes with a traditional AC, ductless air conditioners may sound like a strange concept. Whether you’re looking for an alternative to your current system or you’re simply curious about ductless ACs, it’s important to consider the positives and negatives before switching. Heblon Heating & Air Conditioning is here to walk you through some of the pros and cons of ductless systems!

Advantages Of A Mini Split Air Conditioner

Ductless air conditioners,also known as mini-splits, are smaller units placed in different areas of your home. This system offers a variety of benefits to your Meridian residence.

More Efficient Heating And Cooling

When air travels through the ducts of a traditional system, it ends up being warmer or cooler by the time it reaches different areas of your home. On the other hand, ductless systems deliver warm or cool air directly into the room. This boosts the energy efficiency of your AC and cuts down your utility bill.

Increased Flexibility

With mini splits, you don’t have to settle on one temperature for your entire home. Having individual units in different rooms allows you to adjust the temperature in a specific zone. This increased control and flexibility are ideal for homes where some rooms tend to be hotter than others.

Easier To Install

Compared to traditional air conditioners, ductless units have a quicker installation process. ATraditional AC systems often require multiple days of installation for ductwork. Ductless ACs can be installed within a single day in most cases. Despite the simpler installation process, it’s best to contact a professional technician to install the system. Doing so will ensure the units are the right size and in the correct place.

Count On Us For Proper AC Installation

The most important part of ductless installation is ensuring the air handlers are in the correct place in each room or zone. If placed incorrectly, the air handlers won’t function efficiently, causing them to distribute an uneven heating load and use more electricity.

When you schedule a service with Heblon Heating & Air Conditioning, you’ll never have to worry about a faulty installation. Your comfort is a priority, especially in the Mississippi heat. With years of experience and thorough training, you can trust that your HVAC system is in good hands.

Disadvantages Of Ductless Systems

While mini splits certainly have their upsides, there are some disadvantages of having aductless AC rather than a traditional system. There are a few factors to keep in mind before going ductless.

Higher System Cost

While you’ll save quite a bit of money on your energy bill, ductless ACs are more of an upfront investment than most traditional systems. Ductless systems cost 30% more on average than standard air conditioners, even without ductwork costs.

More Visible In Your Home

The appearance of a mini-split system may not pair well with your carefully curated home decor. If you would prefer not to have your family photos next to a wall unit, it may be worth considering before deciding to go ductless.

Not As Effective In Open Floor Plans

When it comes to mini split systems, they typically work best in homes with small or medium-sized rooms. Open floor plans pose more of a challenge since the limited wall surface area leaves fewer options for air handler placement. Larger rooms might also require more than one air handler, which can add to installation costs.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Highly Recommend Using Heblon

My AC wouldn’t turn on so I called Heblon . It was a Sunday and from calling the office to the engineer arriving took about 45 minutes. The engineer was professional and gave me excellent feedback on the issue. Repaired within 45 minutes and couldn’t ask for more. Highly recommend using Heblon, and will definitely be using them from now on.

Jerry is part of the family now. He is always professional, knowledgeable, and able to fix the problem. I really appreciate the great customer service I get from the time I call the office, the prompt response, the timely arrivals, the updates via text message, and the follow up after the job is complete. I wouldn’t trust anyone else but Heblon. My family is grateful for them.
