If you need cooling in a space where installing ductwork isn’t practical, a ductless air conditioner offers an attractive solution. Instead of circulating air through a maze of ducts, ductless units send cool air directly into individual rooms. Thanks to their superior energy efficiency, they’re becoming increasingly popular for a wide variety of applications. Whether you’re on the hunt for an AC replacement or a new installation, it’s worth your while to explore the full benefits of duct-free cooling.

How Ductless Air Conditioning Works

Traditional central-air systems are equipped with a large blower that propels air through a network of air ducts. In contrast, mini-split AC systems feature point-of-use air handlers installed in each work or living space. Multiple air handlers are connected to a single outdoor unit. This split-system configuration puts you in complete control of your cooling comfort:

Since each air handler operates independently, you can set different temperatures in different rooms.

Depending on the model, air handlers can be mounted on the wall, floor or ceiling for optimal performance.

Remote controls for each air handler let you change settings from the comfort of your bed or favorite easy chair.

Features like multiple fan speeds allow you to adjust operation according to your cooling needs.

Benefits of Going Ductless

Taking ductwork out of the equation offers multiple benefits, from enhanced comfort to improved air quality. Eliminating ducts makes installation less intrusive than with traditional AC systems. They’re adaptable to any structure, from historic homes to commercial offices. Ductless AC systems offer exceptional energy efficiency too. Compared to central-air systems, they can slash your cooling costs by up to 40 percent.

Explore Your Ductless Options

Ductless air conditioning systems are available in both single-zone and multi-zone models. Single-zone systems offer the perfect cooling solution for home renovations like enclosed porches, converted garages and finished attics. For commercial applications, they’re great for warehouse offices or computer rooms that require supplemental cooling.

Multi-zone systems are ideal for homes or businesses where ductwork installations aren’t feasible. They’re also an energy-efficient option for retrofits and replacement systems.
