Ductless AC is a flexible cooling technology that provides a variety of valuable benefits for many homes. The technology can be very valuable for providing supplemental heating or cooling to hard-to-cool areas. It also works well for room additions where it would be impractical and/or prohibitively expensive to extend the existing ductwork.

What Is Ductless Air Conditioning & How Does it Work?
A ductless mini-split AC consists of an outdoor compressor and one or more indoor air handlers. Multi-splits are specifically designed for use in more than one area, room or zone. With mini- and multi-split systems, a conduit that runs through a small hole in the home’s outer wall connects the indoor and outdoor units.
A ductless AC is a compact, energy-efficient home heating and cooling solution that offers many benefits to homes and small business:
- It saves space
- Is quick and easy to install
- Doesn’t require extensive home renovation
- Allows for targeted comfort
We place the air handler for each room or zone high on the wall or recessed into the ceiling. You can easily change settings via remote control. Individual thermostats control the units in each room or zone, allowing for real flexibility. You can determine settings based on the needs of each area. This feature can be very helpful for boosting energy efficiency even further.
What Applications Work Best for Ductless Air Conditioning?
When making building improvements, it’s easy to get excited about the new space, but don’t forget to think about how you will heat and cool the area. The choice you make could impact your bank account during construction and in the long-run.
Think about the costs of installing or incorporating the new system. Consider how that choice will impact heating and cooling efficiency. A ductless mini-split system offers installation and energy savings. Areas that might benefit from the versatility of a ductless mini-split system include:
- Hard-to-cool rooms
- Room additions
- Converted garages
- Finished attics or basements
- Small apartments
- Recreation rooms
