How to Cool a Room Without Adding Ductwork
Whether you’re adding an addition to your home or converting a garage into a living space, deciding how to handle cooling demands can be difficult. Retrofitting ductwork into an area where it was not originally installed (such as a garage, attic, some basements, etc.) can be invasive and expensive, and it may not be the right solution for you and your family.
How can you cool your home without adding ductwork? One of the most popular solutions is installing a ductless mini-split system.
Installing a Ductless Cooling System in Your Central NJ Home
These are ideal for both retrofitting as well as new living spaces. Ductless mini-split systems consist of a wall-mounted (or baseboard) unit and an outdoor unit, but they only require a small hole to be cut through the exterior wall (just big enough for a tube of refrigerant to pass through). Inside the home, the air will be conditioned and returned into the room by the same unit. These systems are incredibly efficient because they can be installed room-by-room and controlled individually for maximum comfort.
Arctic Air Conditioning installs Mitsubishi mini-split systems and can help you choose the right solution for your home.
When You May Want to Go Ductless
There are many reasons you may want to choose ductless air conditioning, including:
- Retrofitting. Since ductless mini-split systems don’t require bulky ductwork, it makes retrofitting these units simple if you don’t have any ducts installed in your home or you don’t want to re-fit them.
- Ease of installation. Also due to their lack of ductwork, you can count on ductless mini-split systems to be minimally invasive to install. It only requires a small hole in the wall to install your new system.
- Spot cooling. Spot cooling is a breeze with mini-split systems because they are installed individually from room to room. This also means you can regulate the temperature in rooms that are not used as frequently with the greatest of ease.
- Ease of use. With a ductless mini-split system, you get cooling at the touch of a button. You can change the temperature with a remote from anywhere in the room.
