Why Should I Use A Ductless AC?

June 2, 2015 | Blog

The ductless AC, also known as a mini-split system, is increasingly becoming a very popular heating and cooling solution for homes and businesses. In addition to being incredibly energy efficient, ductless air conditioners are a great option for those with poorly designed ductwork or no ductwork at all.

What Is A Ductless Air Conditioner?

As it name implies, there are no energy-draining ducts in a split system. Instead, conditioned air travels through a copper line set. There are two main components of a ductless AC unit – an outdoor compressor/condenser and an indoor air-handling unit. These units are linked by a conduit, which houses the power cable, suction tubing, refrigerant tubing and an condensate drain.

Ductless AC Benefits

  • A ductless air conditioner will last about 12-15 years on average.
  • Each split system blower in the home is controlled individually by remote, meaning you are only paying to cool or heat the rooms you wish to cool or heat.
  • The indoor parts of the system are mounted on walls or there are floor-standing options.
  • Because only a small hole in the wall is needed for a ductless AC system, your home also is less susceptible to intruders.
  • Split systems can be used in all climates and are easy to install.
  • Some homeowners enjoy the extra square footage of not having ducts.

Ductless AC Cost

While the long-term energy savings are extensive, ductless AC systems have a higher front-end cost. According to the Department of Energy, the average split system is 30% costlier than a traditional air conditioner. But, ductless AC units provide immense savings on your energy bills. Some have a SEER rating as high as 28, which is twice the efficiency of a standard AC unit.
