In most cases, new homes are built with a set of ductwork in place so that a heating and cooling system can circulate air throughout the home. However, this isn’t always the case. Some older homes do not have any ductwork installed whatsoever, and installation would be a time-consuming endeavor. And if you’ve recently added a new room onto a home, extending the ductwork into this room may seem like too much extra work when you can just purchase a separate heating and cooling system for this room only. In these cases, a ductless air conditioner comes in handy.

A ductless air conditioner, also called a ductless mini-split, does not require ducts as the individual air handlers mounted throughout the home are effective at moving conditioned air into a room. The outside compressor unit looks similar to those used in ducted systems. This connects to the air handlers via a refrigerant line. During the refrigerant process, refrigerant absorbs heat from the inside of the home, and this heat then disperses outside. In the colder months, this process can reverse, so that heat is absorbed from the outdoors and moves into your home.
Ductless AC systems are often more efficient than ducted units, partly due to the fact that there are no ducts. Most home ductwork is full of leaks that allow air to escape, reducing the overall efficiency of the heating or AC system. Oftentimes, homeowners are paying more to heat or cool unoccupied areas of the home, such as an attic or a crawlspace. You won’t have to worry about this with a ductless unit, as a fan delivers the conditioned air directly into the room.
When you choose a ductless heating and cooling system, you also have the ability to control the temperature separately in different areas of your home. The indoor air handler of a ductless split system has its own thermostat. Since you need several air handlers to heat or cool an entire home, this means that you get a thermostat in each zone of the home, so every member of the family can choose their desired comfort levels.
Ductless air conditioners are highly efficient, but any heating and cooling system requires service at some point in time.
