Most homeowners are used to the idea of an air conditioning system using a series of ducts to circulate cool air throughout your home. But there are ductless systems that offer some pretty attractive benefits over traditional forced-air systems.

Ductless mini split air conditioning and heating systems use wall-mounted units in each room or zone of the house. Each unit circulates the air in its particular area and either cools or heats it. All the units are connected to one or two central outdoor units similar to the outdoor condensing unit that is used with traditional central AC system. The installation process is actually very simple. The outdoor unit is installed away from the home. A small hole needs to be drilled in your walls to run refrigerant tubes and electrical wires to connect the indoor units and the outdoor unit; then the indoor units just need to be mounted on the wall in an appropriate place.

Benefits of Ductless Air Conditioning

Ductless mini split air conditioning system offer some unique benefits. First, they allow homeowners to control the temperature of different areas of their house independently of each other. This could reduce energy usage because you’ll only need to cool or heat the rooms that you’re using. Second, ductless mini split AC systems don’t have the energy loss that is associated with ducts. And since they don’t use ducts, they can also help keep the air in your home clean and avoid dust build-up.
