You can’t live without air conditioning during a West Palm Beach or Port Saint Lucie summer. You need a hard-working air conditioner in the house or all bets are off. If you’re considering an air conditioning upgrade to increase your chill factor during the sweltering days ahead, a ductless system can keep you as cool as a cucumber and shower you with savings. Here are five excellent reasons to discover the ductless difference.

Easy Installation

A ductless mini split system installation takes little time and very little construction. A small opening in the wall is all that’s needed to connect the tubing from the outdoor unit to a wall-mounted indoor unit. You pay lower installation costs compared with central AC installation.

Zoned Cooling Comfort

Each indoor unit controls the temperature in a given zone with its own thermostat. Cool only the rooms you use instead of cooling the whole house and you’ll enjoy outstanding humidity management in the bargain.

Economical Operation

Ductless systems are more economical than central air conditioners that rely on ductwork. Cool air is not lost as it moves through ducts, and you won’t have to pay for ductwork inspections, duct sealing, and ductwork maintenance.

Cleaner Indoor Air

Ductwork is a perfect hideaway for mold, insects, mites, pollen, bacteria, fungi, and rodents. Every time a central air conditioner kicks on, these unwelcome duct dwellers are blown into your home. You avoid these problems with ductless systems. Furthermore, ductless mini-splits have a multi-stage air filtration system that removes airborne irritants before they can invade your space. You’ll enjoy indoor air that’s clean, fresh, and cool.

High Efficiency Performance

Ductless cooling systems come with variable-speed compressors. They consume only enough energy to maintain the desired indoor temperature. By eliminating this wasted energy, homeowners can save as much as 50 percent on summer cooling costs.
