What is a ductless, mini-split AC system?

Like regular central A/C systems, ductless mini-split A/C systems place the noisy compressor and condenser outside of your home. But, one major benefit of ductless AC systems, is that they require no basement- or attic-located evaporator units and they eliminate the need for bulky ductwork by using thin copper tubing to pump refrigerant directly to discreet wall mounted blowers inside your home. Unlike central A/C systems, ductless mini-split systems work in reverse during winter, absorbing heat from the air outside and moving it inside to heat your home for efficient year round cooling and heating. And, ductless A/C systems come in a range of capacities and configurations to fit even the most difficult spaces.

What is a ductless, mini-split AC system?

Ductless mini-split A/C system benefits:

  • No expense and hassle of ductwork installation. No ductwork means more efficiency.
  • Smaller and less expensive than central A/C
  • Virtually silent - quieter than loud window units or central A/C systems
  • One outdoor condenser can be connected to multiple indoor units-- each with its own programmable remote for individual zone control
  • Functions as a heating unit in the winter months. You enjoy all of the energy-efficient benefits year-round for greater annual energy savings.
  • Easy installation 
  • No bulky A/C system components inside the home or hanging out of walls or windows -- piping can often be routed through walls to maintain the aesthetics of your home.
  • Remote control - optional wired remote lets you control temperatures in different rooms or zones of the home.
  • Energy efficiency - no ductwork means you lose less than 5% cooling vs. up to 40% for traditional central A/C systems, with increased efficiencies up to 27.2-SEER for lower utility bills.
  • Helps you go green - R410A refrigerant is most systems is designed to be environmentally friendly.
  • Improved home security - Units are mounted high on a wall, away from the window, providing you with improved security and a pleasant view, unlike window A/C units.
