Why do most people purchase ductless systems?
Ductless systems are very popular outside of the U.S., but most of their use so far has been in homes which can’t have ductwork. This includes home additions, offices without ductwork, or historic homes that predate ducts and modern air conditioning. However, ductless is seeing wider acceptance and use.
Can I still get a ductless system if I have a current AC?
Yes! Many homeowners invest in a ductless single zone system in addition to their current duct air conditioner. This allows them to cool or heat a single room that needs extra attention or turn off the main AC system most of the day and just run the ductless system. Call us to learn more about your options.
What are some of the other benefits of a ductless system?
Ductless systems dehumidify air to greater degree than traditional AC systems. In already-dry places in the West, that’s a less desirable feature. However, here in Louisiana, this exponentially increases your summer comfort. This makes ductless systems a great choice for residents of Lake Charles.
What are some of the more creative uses of ductless systems?
We’ve seen folks install a ductless system over a garage workbench. This allowed the homeowner to be comfortable while machining. We’ve seen historic homes use ductless systems, which allows them to avoid needing to install ducts that detract from beautiful decorated ceilings.
