If you live in an older home without central air conditioning, you don’t have to suffer through the summer without AC. The best air conditioner for a home without existing ductwork is a ductless mini-split system that delivers cool air without the need for messy and expensive duct installation.
What is a Ductless System?
Also known as a mini-split, these systems work by connecting a mounted indoor unit with an outdoor condenser through a small pipe. The localized cooling provides zoned temperature control throughout the home in an extremely efficient way. This makes it the best air conditioner solution for homes that don’t have a furnace and ducts to use with a central air conditioning installation.
Types of Ductless Systems
There are a variety of ductless systems and choosing the best air conditioner for your older home will depend on a number of factors.
- Do you plan on using the ductless system as a secondary source of heat in the winter? If so, you’ll need to ensure that you purchase a cold climate unit that can work in below-freezing temperatures.
- Do you want air conditioning throughout the whole house or only in certain areas? The number of condensers needed will depend on how many mounted indoor units are installed.
- Do you want an indoor unit that provides superior air purification and filtration benefits?
To understand which manufacturer and brand of ductless system is the best air conditioner for your home, it’s best to consult with a professional. A knowledgeable sales representative will be able to walk you through all the options, lay out the advantages of different products and answer any questions you have.
