3 Benefits of Ductless Air Conditioning Systems

Most central air conditioners need a set of ducts: the ventilation system that carries conditioned air from the air handler to the various rooms of the house. But ductless air conditioners have their blowers located in a unit right on the wall, in order to blow air directly into each room that needs it. The benefits of these systems are well worth the cost, especially when compared to energy-draining window AC units. Take a look at just a few of the advantages to a whole-home ductless air conditioner.


This may seem like an obvious one, but you may not be aware of just how much trouble a duct system can cause. Ductwork easily forms leaks over time which are costly to repair. Air leaks out of the ducts and into unoccupied spaces, raising your cooling costs and wearing down your system. And installing or extending ductwork is a time-consuming endeavor, while installing a ductless unit should take less than a day’s work. All that must be done is mounting the inside units and an outside compressor, and connecting the two with the electrical components and a refrigerant line.

Zone Control Comes Standard

Owners of central air conditioning systems may pay hundreds of dollars for zone control: cooling each of the rooms or zones of your homes individually of the others. But a ductless air conditioning system already has this feature built in. Because there are multiple air blower units around the house, you’ll get a thermostat for each one which you can then adjust separately from the others (or all at once).

Above Average Efficiency Ratings

Ductless air conditioners are much more efficient than window air conditioning units (not to mention quieter), and are often rated above even many conventional central air conditioners. These systems last a very long time, and the low cost of maintenance is well worth the price of installation.
