If you are one of the two thirds of American households that have an air conditioning system, then you know how important it is to you and your family. If you have ever had your air conditioner break down, especially in middle of the summer, then you know that it is a serious problem and always strikes at the worst time. To minimize the chances of this happening to you, you might want to consider replacing your old AC unit with a new, more efficient ductless air conditioning system.
Also referred to as “mini-split cooling systems”, ductless air conditioning systems are ultra-quiet, super-efficient, and can usually be installed in a single day. A ductless AC unit isn’t just dependable; in many cases it will save you a considerable amount of money on your utility bills each month. Ductless AC units use less energy than traditional AC systems, so they begin saving you money on your electric bills from day one. Let’s not forget that using less energy also means that you are also helping the environment while leaving a smaller carbon footprint. In many cases, you can also receive a cash rebate from your utility company for installing a high-efficiency AC system. Every dollar counts, so those savings can really add up fast!
Another advantage of a ductless AC system is that they allow for extremely precise temperature control. The system is always continuously adjusting itself to keep up with changes in occupancy, weather, or the time of day. They can also be conveniently adjusted from the anywhere in your home with a remote control. These systems are designed to be aesthetically pleasing as well as efficient. That’s why the central heat pump unit is located outside of your home. Each unit is installed on a bracket so that it won’t bother your landscaping or pets.
If you decide that you or someone you know could benefit from a ductless air conditioning system, make sure that you select a company with a solid reputation to perform your installation.

The manufacturing quality of the AC unit is also very important. Make sure that your AC unit is from a reputable manufacture. Daikin has sold more than a million AC systems all across the world, with each of their system running an average of almost 20 years! Every system that Aliance offers is built around a Daikin inverter driven heat pump. We chose Daikin as our single supplier because they are recognized by technicians and customers worldwide to be the best in the business. Their units are extremely quiet and provide our customers with ice-cold AC in the summer as well as efficient heat in the winter. It’s worth the extra time to select a good manufacturer so you can be sure that you are receiving the highest quality available. Daikin also backs their systems with one of the best warranties in the industry, so you can be confident in your purchase.
Ductless Air Conditioning systems are built around a central heat pump, do they utilize electricity to generate heat. These are not the same as the “old technology” heaters of the past. These heat pumps actually reverse the air conditioning cycle to pull heat from the air outside. This system performs well, even when it’s very cold outside. There have been a lot of advances in heat pump technology in recent years. So many in fact, that in most cases a ductless AC system can heat your home for less money than even the most efficient natural gas system! All Daikin AC systems utilize inverter “variable speed” compressors and non-ozone depletion potential refrigerant, both of which help to further optimize energy conservation.
So if you aren’t thrilled with the quality or performance of your current AC system, a ductless air conditioning system might be right for you. Just remember, whenever you are shopping for a new heating or air conditioning system, do some research and choose a trustworthy company that uses only components from a high quality manufacturer. Alliance’s “AC In A Day” package and Daikin products are a great example of that. Follow this simple advice, and keep you and your family cool this summer.
