For the same reason Seattle sells the most sunglasses per-capita, when the spring temperatures arrive, Seattleites repeat their yearly quarries on installing air conditioning, having forgotten the heat summer can bring. We don’t need it very often, or for very long, but when we do, we really do. Especially after a winter of strangely cold weather, many people wonder what summer will bring. Many will ask, “why did I not do that last year?” Since Summer is right around the bend, it might be time to circle back to a thought from Summers past - add a mini-split ductless air conditioner!Ductless Air Conditioners, also called mini-splits, are a fantastic option if you don’t have the duct work to support central air conditioning. These compact, quiet systems require an external wall. The heat pump sits outside, while the air handler sits inside. Depending on the size of your space, a single condenser can handle several air handlers, creating cooling zones in your home. The indoor unit is so quiet, you will only know it’s on by the cool comfort you’re feeling inside.As an added bonus, these ductless mini-split air conditioners are also more energy efficient. During the cold winter season, you could save up to 50% of your heating costs. After the long cold winter Seattle just experienced, saving money on heat sounds pretty good.
