Ductless air conditioning involves the installation of an outdoor and indoor unit, similar to a central air conditioner system. But where central air conditioning uses a fan to distribute air through the ducts, ductless systems contain all of the indoor components in an air handler mounted high on the wall or on the ceiling. These air handlers blow cool air directly into the room, which is why most homes require more than one air handler. One outdoor condenser unit can usually accommodate up to four indoor air handlers, though. However, you don’t necessarily need ductless air conditioning to fix a hot room. Your current ductwork may just need to be repaired or cleaned, which is also a service that John’s offers.
If you choose ductless air conditioning, these units deliver cooling evenly throughout your home without having any ductwork. Ductless units are often just as powerful as central a/c systems. In fact, many traditional HVAC systems that use air ducts can’t perform as well due to leaks in the ductwork. With a ductless unit, you won’t have to worry about air leaks, which means you’ll be more comfortable and enjoy lower utility bills because of the energy savings.
When you use ductless air conditioning to cool your entire home, you also have zone control, which isn’t an option with a ducted system. Each air handler has its own thermostat, which means that you get to choose the temperature in any zone of the house separately from the other areas. So if you need the bedrooms to be cooler at night, but the kitchen and living areas to be cooler during the daytime, all you have to do is adjust the temperature in those zones.
