A Cool Way to Cool Your Home That Actually Looks Good

As the summer months are approaching and the heat is rising, many people are thinking about having their air conditioner inspected or installing a new one altogether. If that’s you, you may want to consider the benefits of green air conditioning. One cool way to cool your home that actually looks good is ductless air conditioning. The cost of installing a central air conditioner can be overwhelming. Even though there are plenty of tips that you can implement to decrease the heat seeping into your home, you may still want to consider installing ductless air conditioning to assist you with your goals.

Everyone wants to stay cool over the summer, but it’s common to balk at the huge expense of installing central air or the extra work required if the duct project has not yet been completed. Others who are concerned about the use of space in their home and keeping a system that looks good on the inside and outside will be concerned about having central air put in. If this is you, you’re not alone: plenty of people want a system that’s going to give them all the cool benefits while also looking good and decreasing the environmental impact. Up until lately, there were very few options for the person who wanted it all, but that’s no longer the case thanks to ductless air conditioning.

Opening windows at night in situations where you live somewhere where it cools at night, you will be amazed at how quickly the warm air is replaced with refreshing air. Keeping those blinds closed during the day can keep up to 30% of the unwanted heat out of your home altogether. Windows are one of the biggest sources of unwanted heat throughout the home and the biggest violator is appliances. While the most obvious is the oven, plenty of appliances throw off a lot of heat when they are constantly running. Trying to do your chores at night such as running the washer and dryer and the dishwasher can help to alleviate this problem. One cool way to cool your home that looks good as well as has beneficial environmental impacts is to install a ductless AC.

Many people have not had the opportunity to learn more about ductless AC but it is a great way to use less energy while getting comparable results for a central air conditioner. A ductless air conditioner may also be called a mini-split air conditioner and they have a couple of central components including an indoor unit, an outdoor condenser and a conduit. The resulting system works very similarly to central air but does not require that you install any ducts in your attic or your walls. If you live in a house where the duct work has never been completed, or if you know it’s time to invest in a new air conditioner because yours is struggling, you may wish to switch to a solution that provides better energy efficiency. Alex, president of ComfortUp.com says “many of our customers have discovered the benefits of ductless AC and dont see themselves ever going back to central.”

Those are just a few ways to cool your home without taking away from the interior design. Are there any other ways of doing it? Share below!
