The Advantages of Ductless Heating and Air Conditioning

Ductless Mini-Split Advantages

Even if your home has central heating and cooling, a ductless mini-split system could be a good option for supplementary air conditioning and heating. New additions, three-season porches, basements and other spaces not connected to central heating and cooling systems are a good fit for ductless heating and cooling systems.

How Does a Ductless Mini-Split System Work?

A mini-split system has two main parts: a small air handler inside a room, often installed on a wall near the ceiling, and a condenser unit that is installed outside the home. Conduit lines connect the outside components to all of the  air handlers inside the home.

When used for cooling, ductless systems often provide greater efficiency and improved cooling performance when compared to other ductless alternatives such as window AC units. A mini-split system can also heat a room using the same air handler.

Here are just a few of the advantages that mini-split systems offer over traditional central heating and window AC units.

  1. Mini-split systems are a cost-effective option for heating and cooling older homes or buildings without central heating and cooling.
  2. Ductless systems can be used to solve challenging heating and cooling situations where the air handler of the central heating and AC are located too far from from the space you need to heat and cool, such as a new addition or 4-season porch.
  3. Ductless heating and cooling systems are ideal where you need to precisely control the temperature of a room for a specific purpose, such as greenhouses, animal enclosures or cold storage.
  4. They provide cost-effective and efficient heating and cooling for large outbuildings like workshops and detached garages.
