Ductless AC Myths You Should Stop Believing

Serving Families Throughout Dallas

There’s a lot of information you need to know when it comes to heating and cooling your home. And with all that information comes many, many, misconceptions. But we’re here to set the record straight — specifically with ductless air conditioners.

Ductless AC Myths You Should Stop Believing

“They are bad for your indoor air quality.”

Duct-based AC systems and ductless AC systems both have filters that catch particles in the air, preventing any contaminants from getting inside your home.

Some people argue that ductless AC systems are even better because you don’t have ductwork in your home that can potentially store dirt, pollen, and dust.

“They don’t risk any energy loss.”

Ductless AC systems prevent energy loss because there’s no ductwork, but no system is perfect. Not even ductless air conditioners can eliminate energy loss completely.

“Ductless AC units provide uneven cooling.”

If you’re getting your ductless AC system installed by a knowledgeable professional, there’s no reason why it wouldn’t cool your home evenly.

Ductless systems are used to cool a few rooms, so a professional will install them with a design in mind to evenly cool your space with ease.

“Ductless AC systems are only good for new construction.”

When used properly, ductless systems can be just as efficient in existing buildings as they are in newly constructed homes or businesses.

Another major misconception regarding HVAC system is that they don’t need to be maintained. With regular service, a well-kept air conditioner will maintain about 95 percent of its original efficiency throughout its lifetime.
