Ductless Air Conditioning Services in Oceanside, CA
Central air conditioning systems have plenty of advantages to recommend them, but they have a number of disadvantages as well. They cannot modulate their output to meet the demands of different rooms, which leads to hot and cold spots throughout the house. They also tend to rely on a single thermostat, which offers a very incomplete picture of the temperature across the entire house. Fortunately, there is a way to address these problems: ductless air conditioning. If you’d like to know more about the benefits of ductless air conditioning, or would like to schedule an appointment, call us today. We install and service ductless air conditioning systems throughout Oceanside, CA.

What is a Ductless Air Conditioner?
A ductless air conditioner, as you might have guessed, does not use ducts to circulate air around the house. Instead, they make use of a series of smaller air handlers installed around the house. One air handler is installed on the wall or ceiling of each room that is to be air conditioned. Each unit is controlled by its own thermostat. Up to four indoor ductless units can be connected to a single outdoor unit, so you don’t need an excessive amount of free space to outfit your house with ductless air conditioning.
The Advantages of Ductless Air Conditioning
Ductless air conditioners offer a number of distinct advantages over central AC systems. Because they don’t use ducts, they are actually far more efficient than central air conditioners. Ducts are very prone to leaks, even from normal use, and those leaks can add up. The US Department of Energy has estimated that air conditioners can lose up to 30% of their output to duct leaks. That’s almost a third of the total output you pay for that’s going to waste before it ever reaches you. Ductless air conditioning provides all of its output directly into the room, so you don’t have to worry about energy loss.
Ductless air conditioners also provide the ability to modulate output to meet the needs of different rooms. You don’t have to waste energy cooling a room that isn’t being used, or is already at an ideal temperature, just to make a different room more comfortable. This versatility is a major point in ductless air conditioners’ favor.
Finally, ductless air conditioners are capable of acting as both heating and air conditioning systems. This is because they are actually heat pumps, able to reverse the flow of refrigerant through their systems. If you have a ductless air conditioner installed in your home, you don’t have to have a separate heating system for the winter.
