Ductless Air Conditioning Systems Seattle
Do you love everything about your charming century home except for how sweltering the inside of the house gets during the heat of the summer? Are you afraid of the expense of a central air conditioning system since your house lacks the necessary ductwork? Consider a ductless air cooling system.
What Is a Ductless Air Cooling System?
A ductless air cooling system, sometimes referred to as a mini-split system, is made up of two parts. There is an air cooling unit mounted on an outside wall inside the house and a unit outside of the house. Refrigerant lines connect the two parts. One line brings in electricity and the other takes out condensation.
Benefits of a Ductless Air Cooling System
Ductless air cooling systems are a good choice for an older house that is heated with steam radiators and doesn't have a duct system in place. Such systems are much less expensive than installing new ductwork throughout an existing house. A ductless system can also be less expensive to run than central air conditioning, since you are only cooling one room per unit, not the entire house.
A ductless system offers several advantages over a traditional window unit. For one, these systems use a thermostat to keep the temperature even, so you don't have a constant stream of cold air blasting through the room. In addition, the ductless system doesn't have to be removed each season and doesn't carry the inherent security concerns of a window unit.
