Are Ductless ACs More Efficient?

Are you tired of dealing with your air ducts and paying for repairs to prevent air leaks in your HVAC system? Many homeowners have made the change to ductless air conditioning! No ducts, powerful cooling — what could be better?

Air Tech of Humble has all the details about these alternative AC units that promote energy efficiency. With our premier Humble ductless air conditioner installation services, your investment will be a good one. If you’re looking for the best air conditioner to keep your home cool and efficient, a ductless AC might be the perfect solution for you!

Central AC vs. Ductless AC

The primary reason that ductless ACs can operate so much more efficiently than central ACs is due to the cooling and delivering processes.

Similarities

The actual process of cooling air is nearly identical between the two systems. Both have outdoor units that compress and chill air before moving it to the air handler in the home. The outdoor units are connected to the air handlers with thin tubes that hot air travels through to reach the compressor and the newly chilled air moves back to the home by another.

Differences

The differences between the two systems’ performance are more extensive. Central AC air handlers are usually located in the attic and are connected to the system of ducts. As the chilled air enters the air handler, it is pushed by fans through the network of ducts that run through your home. Eventually, the air reaches the vents in your walls and is able to enter your living spaces.

Ductless air handlers are installed on an interior wall of the home. The tubes connecting it to the outdoor unit run through inconspicuous openings in the wall. The shortened access to conditioned air allows for the complete elimination of ducts. Considering that gaps, failed seals and holes are responsible for a massive amount of air and energy loss, the lack of air ducts could reduce your energy consumption significantly.

Zone-Cooling Technology

The second main way ductless ACs function more efficiently is through unique control of cooling. Central ACs rely on ducts to spread air throughout the entire building. Ductless ACs use multiple air handlers to provide targeted cooling to specific areas of the home. Instead of turning on the central air to push air throughout the entire home, regardless of which rooms you actually want to be cooled, ductless AC gives you more control.

An air handler installed in your living room can be operated independently from one in your bedroom. This means that you only have to use energy to cool the spaces you want to. The zones of your home that are most inhabited can be conditioned more precisely and accurately than they were before.
