Summers in Kansas and Missouri can be fierce, and your air conditioner has faithfully provided soothing relief from the heat and humidity. Regrettably, your air conditioner is starting to exhibit signs of old age: it knocks and pings during operation, your fuel bills are climbing higher and higher and you are seeing your friendly HVAC repairman much too often. If it's time for a new AC system, ductless may be the answer.
Advantages of Ductless Air Conditioning
Ductless systems, often called split or multi-split systems, consist of an outdoor unit and one or more indoor units. Easy to install, ductless AC can replace ineffective window units or obsolete ducted systems and offers home and business owners several advantages:
- Efficiency. Ductless heat pumps and air conditioners take less power to operate, which means you can save up to 25 percent on annual fuel bills.
- Superior comfort. Each air handler unit in a ductless system provides relief to an individual room or area; this zoned comfort allows you to decide which rooms you want to cool and when you want to cool them.
- Quality. The Mitsubishi Electric contractors on our site are excited to install ductless systems from Mitsubishi Electric because they are long-lasting and reliable. As a premier heating and cooling manufacturer, the Mitsubishi Electric name is synonymous with excellence.
Improved Indoor Air Quality
Everyone has been around a forced-air HVAC system so the chances are good that you caught a whiff of musty air at one time or another when your air conditioner kicked on. That's because, over time, dirt, mold, dust mites and other contaminants build up in the ductwork of a ducted HVAC system. Not only do the air ducts provide a moist breeding ground for mold and mildew, but also each time your unit operates, the air passing over the mold picks up bacteria spores and circulates them throughout your home or business. With the three-stage filter system of ductless air conditioning, your air will always be fresh and pure.
If greater efficiency, superior comfort and the other benefits of ductless systems aren't enough, ductless AC also helps you lower your carbon footprint. Ductless systems meet ENERGY STAR efficiency guidelines and use R410A refrigerant, which does not deplete the ozone.
Nothing lasts forever, and air conditioners are no exception. To learn more about the advantages ductless air conditioning can bring to your Kansas or Missouri home or business, contact one of our licensed Mitsubishi Electric contractors near you.
