Consumer Watch: Ductless air conditioning

(WHAS11) Guys, the heat is on in Kentuckiana. Instead of sweating it, we looked into another option for staying cool its called ductless air conditioning. Ductless air conditioners are a little newer technology so you want to make sure you have someone who is experienced in installing them because they are not installed exactly the same way, Angie Hicks of Angies List said. Ductless A.C units will set you back $1500 to $2000 per ton of cooling capacity. Yes its expensive, but more efficient than traditional air conditioners that lose about 20 percent of their efficiency from ductwork. Ductless units are especially helpful in standalone rooms like a sunroom and maintenance is a snap. “Basically the main thing that you are going to want to do is keep the filters clean. The front will just pop up like this and then the filters will slide out. You have one on each side. Slide these filters out and wash them off under the sink, let them dry and then you are ready to pop them back in,” HVAC contractor Chad Peterman claims. Installation is a little more complex than a standard air conditioner. An evaporator is installed in the home and the condenser is place outside the home. Tubes filled with refrigerant run from the outside unit to the inside. Some of these ductless systems also provide heat, but you may need to purchase a heat pump to move that hot air as opposed to now where its all around us.
