Run Your Central Air Conditioning Less With Ductless Cooling

Save on energy bills with this smart solution

Many Americans aspire to live in Florida. It’s one reasons we have so many visitors! If you’re lucky enough to live here, especially in the beautiful Emerald Coast area, you probably depend on your central air conditioning frequently. Did you know ductless cooling can help you in multiple ways?

Ductless air conditioners have come a long way in the last few years. The noisy, inefficient window units have been replaced with sleek, remote-controlled designs easily installed on the wall. In general, ductless air conditioning units are quieter, because the unit generating any sound is on the exterior of the home. While more energy efficient overall, select models are Energy Star certified.

Empty Nesters Rejoice with Ductless Cooling

Many residents in Walton, Bay, Santa Rosa and Okaloosa counties find themselves living in a large home after children leave for college. Other residents maintain a larger home in order to comfortably host friends and family who visit. Homeowners can easily cut down on central air conditioning costs by installing ductless air conditioners in the one to three of their most-used rooms. Create zone cooling and remain comfortable in the rooms you use most while running your central air conditioning less overall.

Some homeowners mistakenly believe closing doors and vents in underused rooms will save on central air conditioning costs. This is a myth. The reality is your central air conditioning will work harder to compensate for the imbalance in temperature and pressure within the home.

It’s better to run the central air conditioning at a slightly higher temperature and use the ductless units to boost the cooling in the master bedroom and family room, for example.

Concerns About Your Central Air Conditioning

If your central air conditioning unit is more than 10 years old, it may be due for a replacement. Energy efficiency has increased dramatically in the last decade. While 80 percent efficiency used to be the norm, central air conditioning units can achieve as much as 98 percent now. The change represents a huge savings in every dollar you spend to cool your home!

If your central air conditioning is less than 10 years old, be sure to maintain it regularly for optimal performance and reliability. Call a trusted local provider, like Mills Heating and Air for any service, repair or replacement needs.
