Temperature Control


Summers in Minnesota can be brutally hot. Despite months of wishing away the snow-covered driveways and subzero temperatures, glancing at your electric bill or feeling those 80-degree temperatures inside your home isn’t much better.

August is one of the hottest months of the year in Minnesota, and selecting the best air conditioning for your home or apartment can be a daunting task. Central air conditioning might not be an option if your home doesn’t have ducts. Installing ducts could cost large amounts of time and money you could instead save by installing a ductless air conditioner.

Ductless air conditioners, or mini-split systems, contain parts both inside and outside that are connected through a cable. Besides saving you money, these space-saving units with zoned temperature control are ideal for smaller spaces such as apartments or basements, or even new home additions.

Don’t settle for a stifling space that should be comfortable all year round. Here are 5 reasons a ductless air conditioner is right for you.

1. Energy efficiency

Ductless air conditioners will save you money and energy costs while maintaining efficiency. Traditional HVAC units use more power, meaning you’ll likely be paying more to keep your home cool. Determining your zone capacity will allow you to choose the best ductless air conditioner for your space. With a ductless air conditioner’s zoned temperature control, you can efficiently cool the spaces you need rather than areas of your home that see little use.

2. Easy installation

There’s no need to install ductwork in your home in order to relax comfortably indoors during the summer months. You’ll want to call in a professional for installation of a ductless air conditioner, but the process is simple and takes a matter of hours. A small hole will be drilled in your wall to connect the indoor and outdoor units. All you need is the remote control and you’ve got temperature control at your fingertips.

3. Saving space

Though not as compact as a window unit, the design of a ductless air conditioner is ideal for apartments, or even a master bedroom. Typically hung on a wall, a ductless air conditioner gives you flexibility in choosing the best rooms to keep cool and the placement that works with the design of your space. It’s all up to you.

4. Constant temperature

You can trust a ductless air conditioner to effectively complete its job instead of turning it on and off. Keep everyone in your space happy. Choose the temperature you want, and keep it constant in that space.

5. Quiet performance

A ductless air conditioner is quiet, yet powerful. Yes, you deserve the best of both worlds. There’s no need to lie awake at night listening to your air conditioner. The louder parts of the system are located outdoors while the indoor unit quietly cools your space.

There’s always a solution to discomfort, and the advantages of a ductless air conditioner save you time and money without having to re-design the inner workings of your home or living with less-than-ideal solutions. Summers are hot, and a ductless air conditioner will make sure you have an escape to enjoy.
