Is a Ductless Air Conditioning System Right for My Cincinnati Home?


Does your Cincinnati home need a new air conditioning system this season? If you are in the market for a replacement cooling system and you haven’t looked into a ductless air conditioner, we encourage you to learn more about these affordable, versatile comfort systems!

About Ductless AC Systems

A ductless air conditioning system is made up of an outdoor unit and one or more indoor blower units, which are connected by conduit. The outdoor unit houses the system’s condenser, condenser fan, and compressor, whereas each indoor unit contains its own refrigerant line, air filter, and coils.

The number of indoor blower units that will make up your ductless air conditioning system depends on factors such as number of rooms or zones which need cooling and your comfort preferences. A single exterior unit has the capacity to support as many as four interior blower units. Whenever an individual indoor blower unit turns on, the cooling process begins.

Advantages of Ductless Air Conditioning

Ductless air conditioning systems may be preferable over traditional central air systems for a number of reasons, including:

Zoned comfort: With a ductless system, each indoor blower unit controls the cooling of the room or zone it serves. This provides occupants with the ability to independently control the cooling levels within that space without affecting the rest of the home.
No ducts needed: If your home doesn’t have existing ductwork or your ducts need significant improvements to support a new central air conditioner, installing a ductless air conditioning system can provide the comfort you want without the expense of ductwork installation or modification.
Ductless heating: A new ductless air conditioning system can also be configured to support ductless heating throughout the home. Using a heat pump, your ductless units will be able to provide you with zoned heating come fall and winter.
