If you’re in the market for a new air conditioner to keep you cool this summer, it’s important to consider all the possibilities before making a purchase. Aside from your standard cooling unit, ductless air conditioners have grown in popularity, providing a new way for property owners to cool their space. Essentially, ductless air conditioners are made just how they sound – with no duct work. Check out these benefits of ductless air conditioners to help you decide which kind of cooling system you’ll invest in next:

Energy Efficient: Since these units don’t use ducts, there is no place for air to be lost. Ultimately, the only place the air has to go is out of the unit and into the room, instead of traveling through ducts first. In addition to reducing the amount of energy lost and used, these systems also prove to be beneficial for your cooling bill, since they come with multiple thermostats allowing you to adjust where and for how long it is in use.

Safe: When compared to typical window or wall air conditioners, ductless systems are often considered to be safer. This is because they don’t use combustible fuels and don’t really require any ventilation.

Space Saver: Unlike bulky units, ductless systems are designed in a way that they can be suspended from ceilings or hung from the top of the walls. This means you’ll no longer lose your window space for the summer!

Quiet: Say goodbye to noisy air conditioners that keep you cool but also keep you up at night. Installation of ductless air conditioners means that compressors and condensers are now located outside the unit, keeping it quiet indoors.

An HVAC (or heating, ventilation and air conditioning) system, is a system designed to provide comfort to both commercial and residential buildings throughout all seasons. Since these systems are so important to maintain a comfortable temperature in your home or commercial building, it’s imperative that they are taken care of and properly maintained in order to ensure effective performance. Especially as the weather gets warmer and you crank up the A/C, you’ll want to be sure your system is ready to go. To keep your cool this summer, check out these DIY tips to maintain your HVAC system:
  • Remove any leaves or debris that may have built up around your outdoor unit during the winter and spring seasons.
  • Keep all plant life and vegetation at least 2 feet away from each side of your outdoor unit and make sure to trim any grass or plants that get too close.
  • Place your unit in a shady spot if at all possible. By shading your system, it can prove to be at least 10% more efficient during the summer season than if it were in the sun.
  • Check your filter at least once a month and replace if necessary. Dirty or clogged filters can be damaging to performance ability.
  • Clean your unit’s fan blades and coils at the start of each cooling season. Make sure to clean off all debris from the inside as well and brush off any dust or dirt that may have built up on the the blades or inside the unit itself.
