If your noisy AC is keeping you up at night or distracting you during the day, there is an effective and efficient solution to your problem. Ductless air conditioning systems deliver the same level or even a better level of comfort, without the banging, clanging and rattling of traditional air conditioning systems that rely upon air ducts to deliver the conditioned air. Our Custom Air Heating & Cooling team explains how going ductless in your Bradenton, FL home can help you create a quieter and more comfortable indoor environment.
How Much Noise Is Typical In an Air Conditioning System
In central air conditioning systems, the equipment makes noise upon startup as the capacitor draws and supplies power to the motors. The fan makes a whirring and whooshing sound, and finally, the air comes through the ducts, creating more sound. Loose or damaged ducts may add to the sound level within the home. The system will make more sounds such as clicks when the cycle has completed.
What Too Much Noise Means
When an air conditioning system starts to make loud, new or unusual sounds, it often means that there is a mechanical problem within the system. It might sound like there are poorly tuned musical instruments making grinding, clanging and rattling sounds throughout each cycle of the system. As the problem is left unattended, the noises could get more frequent and even more loud.
Getting Rid of a Noisy AC and Going Ductless
Instead of being kept up all night long by the annoying sounds of an old air conditioner, consider going ductless. Ductless air conditioners offer much quieter cooling than traditional central air conditioning systems. Instead of an indoor air handler and air ducts, the system uses a set of tubing that carries the chemical coolant, which is then blown across the internal coil with the use of a small internal fan. The system comes with the same outdoor condenser unit as a traditional type of system. Inside your home, you will only hear the soft whirring of the cool air coming in as well as the click on and click off of the condenser outdoors.
In addition to operating more quietly than a central air conditioning system, ductless air conditioners also offer the advantage of higher energy efficiency. You can set up zoned climate control areas and only cool specific areas of your home if you so desire. As a result, you could save hundreds of dollars each year on cooling costs.
