Reasons You Should Consider Ductless AC or Heat Pump in ColoradoDuctless air conditioners and heat pumps continue to grow in popularity, and their applications are more numerous than ever. Also known as ductless mini-split systems, these comfort systems can provide independently controlled air conditioning or heating for as many or as few rooms in your home as you desire. Here are some of the reasons you may want to consider for choosing a ductless AC or heat pump system:

Enjoy Peace and Quiet

Both the outdoor condensing unit and the indoor blower units used on ductless systems are extremely quiet. Our customers often comment that the outdoor unit is so quiet that they can hardly tell if it’s even operating, when it absolutely is. The multi-speed indoor blower units also garner the same sort of feedback.

Make the Most of Your Space

The outdoor condensing unit used with ductless systems is typically half the size of the ones used for central AC, and many of these outdoor units can support more than one indoor blower. So the outdoor footprint is pleasingly small.

The modern styled indoor blower units used for ductless systems are also very compact and are typically installed high on an interior wall, up and out of the way for many families. There are also other blower unit options to satisfy a variety of customer preferences.

Cool Your Home Quickly

When it starts getting hot indoors, you can rely on your ductless system to quickly get your living space back to a comfortable temperature. For a properly sized and professional installed ductless system, response time and performance is remarkable.

Fine Tune the Temperature of Each Room

Because ductless systems condition single rooms or defined areas such as a living room, the zoning ability they provide allows you to fine tune the temperature in those areas for specific personal preferences – similar to how hot water baseboard heating systems perform with their job for different parts of a home during the winter.

If your home already has central AC, but certain rooms just bake when others are doing fine, ductless AC is a great option to supplement cooling in those problem areas. We have found over the years that upstairs bedrooms are often candidates for extra cooling, and ductless AC does the job great.
