Spring is the perfect time to upgrade to a ductless air conditioning system as Long Island thaws out from the brutal winter and soaks in the season’s warmth. If you dread the idea of pulling out your old, dusty window AC units, hoping they’ll cool you for one more year, then you should consider switching to ductless AC.
Having an AC system installed now before temperatures really heat up allows you more time to research and to request multiple evaluations of your home and multiple estimates from different companies, if you so choose. It also allows you to plan the project in advance to reduce any chance of error during installation.
There are deals to be had this time of year as heating and cooling contractors wind down from winter deliveries and maintenance and prepare for summer maintenance and repair. In addition, homeowners can take advantage of current rebates from PSEG Long Island that can save them up to $1,000 by upgrading to a new, energy-efficient ductless AC system.
Advantages of Ductless Air Conditioning On Long Island
Ductless AC operates similarly to its ducted central air conditioning cousin and creates a comfortable home environment. However, where central AC cools an entire home via ductwork in each room, ductless strategically cools the rooms or areas where a separate, smaller air handler is installed on the wall or in the ceiling. This makes installation much easier and faster.
At Tragar, your Long Island green energy company, our Fujitsu units can be installed in various combinations. Several ductless wall units can run from one outside condenser. The wall units are slim, stylish enclosures and are built into interior walls over windows or doors, or even into the ceiling.
Once installed, the system further reduces overall cooling costs thanks to its separate zones which allow you to cool only the most occupied areas of your home.
Other advantages include:
- Providing more consistent temperatures and humidity control than traditional window AC units.
- Providing better indoor air quality, given their ability to ventilate stale indoor air, zap airborne germs, trap particles and control humidity to limit mold and mildew growth.
- Reducing noise, given their ability to run much more quietly than traditional window AC units.
- Allowing design flexibility.
