There is no need to suffer from excess heat in your home due to poor air circulation. Favorable air circulation inside your home benefits you and your family not only with comfort but also with good health. When air circulates properly in your home, your air conditioner and other cooling devices will work at their optimum efficiency while allowing you to save energy and reduce your monthly utility costs.
While insulation along the attic floor helps keep indoor warm air and humidity under control, installing attic ventilation such as an attic fan helps drive stagnant air and humidity out through the air vents. Your air conditioner can significantly cool the room when supported by properly installed attic ventilation as part of your home’s whole-house fan system.
When combined with an air conditioner to cool the home, a ceiling fan helps increase the cooling effect so you may raise the thermostat a few degrees higher and save on energy. It’s important to note that ceiling and exhaust fans, attic ventilation, and the air conditioner work together to improve air quality inside your home.
Ductless Air Conditioner
A ductless air conditioner is an equally viable and efficient solution to a traditional window or central air conditioning system. In the latter, a network of ducts is installed to move cooled air throughout the house. A window AC may cost less but its cumbersome weight and design take out a whole window you might otherwise use for added natural ventilation or to enjoy a view.
A ductless mini split system is relatively straightforward to install, and certainly less complicated than a whole-home air conditioner, integrating only a condenser outdoors and wall-mounted units called zones along different parts of the house.
