What is a ductless, mini-split AC system?

There are many benefits to installing a ductless mini-split AC system. Just like a typical central AC system, ductless AC systems leave the noisy compressor and condenser outside of your home, but a ductless system requires no basement- or attic-located evaporator units. Ductless systems use thin copper tubing to pump refrigerant directly to discreet wall mounted blowers inside your home, and they even help heat your home in the winter by collecting warmth from the air outside and cycling it throughout your home, improving the efficiency of both your heating and cooling year-round! Plus, ductless systems come in a range of capacities and configurations so they are compact and can conveniently fit almost anywhere.

Ductless mini-split A/C system benefits:

  • Cheaper and less hassle than ductwork installation. Piping can often be routed through walls to maintain the aesthetics of your home.
  • Smaller and less expensive than central AC.
  • Easy installation
  • Virtually silent – more quiet than loud window units or central AC systems
  • One outdoor condenser can be connected to multiple indoor units – each with its own optional programmable remote for individual zone control lets you control temperatures in different rooms or zones of the home.
  • Functions as a heating unit in the winter months. Enjoy all of the energy-efficient benefits year-round for greater annual energy savings.
  • No ductwork means more efficiency - you lose less than 5% cooling vs up to 40% for traditional central AC systems, with increased efficiencies up to 27.2-SEER for lower utility bills.
  • Helps you go green – R410A refrigerant for most systems is designed to be environmentally friendly.
  • Improves home security – units are mounted high on a wall, away from the window, providing you with improved security.
