1. Choosing the Best Location to Install Your New Ductless AC and Protecting It

If you live in an area with mild winters, ductless heat pumps that can provide heating too are a great option for your home.

Today, ductless AC systems can be installed as mini-split systems. These are systems that have one AC unit outdoors and more than one air-handler indoors. The benefits of mini-split systems are that they allowed for zoned air conditioning designs to cool larger spaces like an average-sized home. If you have a larger home with areas like finished basements that need cooling, you may need more than one mini-split system to meet the cooling needs of your home.
4. Choosing the Right Thermostats and Controls to Make Your Ductless AC Even More Efficient
There are a lot of options for energy-efficient thermostats that can be installed with your new ductless AC. You may want to have a system with controls that use AI to memorize settings and preferences to help adapt the settings to your needs and to maximize the energy efficiency of your AC.
