Aren’t You Tired of Lugging Around
Window Air-Conditioners Every Summer?

Ductless Air-Conditioning Systems (also known as Mini-Splits) Are Designed For Older Homes or New Additions, Where Ductwork is Too Expensive or Impossible to Install, and Traditional Window A/C Units Are Not Desirable.

7 Reasons to Replace Window A/C Units With a Ductless System:

1. Safety and Security: A Window A/C unit makes it very easy for someone to break into your home.

2. No Damage: Window A/C units leak condensation onto your window frame causing the wood to rot, the window casing to warp, and Mold and Mildew.

3. Whisper-Quiet Operation: Window A/C units are loud and obnoxious when compared to a Ductless A/C System.

4. Comfort: Ductless A/C Systems use a remote-control thermostat to maintain constant room temperature, while Window A/C units control temperature based on a thermostat that is close to the window giving it a false reading, causing uneven temperature swings in the room.

5. Aesthetics: Ductless A/C systems do not stick out of your home. Window units make a home look ugly! There are several options of Ductless indoor units that will keep your home looking good inside and outside while keeping you cool and comfortable.

6. Convenience: Once installed, there will be no more installing and de-installing heavy Window A/C units every summer, or worse, leaving them up all year!

7. Efficiency: Ductless A/C Systems are far more Energy Efficient and more powerful than most traditional Window A/C units. Also, it is far less expensive, and much easier to install a Ductless System than in-room ductwork or a pipe-based Central Air System. It is important to have your A/C system serviced especially if its an holder unit, contact Classic AC Services to come take a look at it.

How a Ductless A/C System Works:

A Ductless Air-Conditioning system has 2 major components. A wall mounted unit and a unit mounted outside the home.

Multiple inside units work independently and can be connected to one outside unit. For example: One unit can be installed in your living room, one in the kitchen one in the master bedroom, and one in the your kid’s bedroom.

A Remote-Control Thermostat controls each unit for the desired temperature in each room.
