Unlike a traditional central air conditioning system, ductless mini-split AC systems don’t require any existing ductwork to cool your home. Despite not using ductwork, these systems are very powerful and incredibly efficient at cooling your entire home. In fact, they offer numerous benefits that traditional systems simply cannot. Namely, by not requiring any ductwork, these systems reduce overall energy loss. What does this mean for you? It means you’ll need less energy to cool your home, which equates to lowered utility bills each month and a lower environmental impact.

What Are the Benefits of a Ductless Mini-Split AC System?
As previously mentioned, ductless mini-split ACs can save you money thanks to better energy efficiency.
They also offer a number of other benefits, including:
- Relatively fast and simple installation
- Zoning and room-by-room temperature control
- Remote control capabilities
- Quieter operation than bulky window units
- High SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) ratings
- Complete customizability
- Optional air filtration/indoor air quality control
Ductless mini-split AC systems also offer the benefit of affordability. While any new air conditioner is an investment, with a ductless mini-split AC, you’ll have lower installation and operation costs and will start seeing savings on your monthly bills in no time.
How Do They Work?
Like most air conditioning systems, ductless mini-split ACs comprises two parts: an outdoor unit and one or several indoor units. The outdoor unit is installed in an inconspicuous place outside of your home. Several cables and a refrigerant line connect the outdoor unit to the indoor unit. Our installers will make a small hole (about 3-inches in diameter) in the wall to allow the cables and refrigerant line through.
The indoor unit is easily mounted inside your home. With sleek, modern designs, these ACs are not the old eyesores of days past. Unlike window AC units, they won’t block your view, either. Best of all, certain models offer exceptionally quiet operation—at decibels lower than a human whisper! Once installed, the indoor unit is connected to the outdoor unit. In most cases, a single indoor unit is enough to cool your entire home, though some outdoor units are capable of powering up to eight indoor units for maximum comfort.
One of the most convenient features of ductless mini-split AC systems is remote control. A wireless remote allows you to easily set your preferred temperature, fan speed, and airflow. You can even set timers to maximize cooling efficiency and program your favorite mode so you never have to worry about keeping cool.
What Is Zoning?
Home zoning is the process of cooling different areas of your home to different temperatures. This is not possible with a traditional central air conditioning system, as these systems push cooled air equally throughout all of the ducts and into each room. With a ductless mini-split AC, however, you can keep rooms you use more often cooler and save money by not cooling rooms you barely use. This level of customization is great for families or roommates that tend to have different AC preferences.
