What Are the Advantages of a Ductless System?

There are many types of air conditioning systems out on the market today, each with their own set of benefits. And while one unit may be great for one home, another may be a better fit for yours. If your home doesn’t already have ductwork installed, then one option you may want to look into is the ductless cooling system.

Ductless cooling uses a split-system similar to a traditional central air conditioning unit, however it has indoor air handlers that contain each of the components of an indoor evaporator unit, eliminating the need for ductwork. When a ductless unit is installed, your HVAC technician will drill a small hole in the wall to connect these air handlers to an outdoor unit that contains the refrigerant and drain lines the system needs to function. This provides many advantages, a few of which we’ve shared below.

Saves Space

Do you have a new room addition, or an older home? Either of these scenarios meant that you might not have the room to add ductwork to your home. The outdoor component of a ductless system is pretty compact, and while visible in the home, indoor handlers are pretty unobtrusive to your home.

Zoned Cooling

If you have multiple occupants in your home, then chances are you have multiple cooling preferences as well. A ductless system gives you a thermostat for each room or zone in your home, which means that one occupant can choose to raise the temperature of a particular room while the other family members enjoy cooler air elsewhere.

Lower Energy Bills

Ductless cooling systems are highly energy efficient. Many of them have a significantly higher SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) rating that some ducted systems, making them more affordable to use month-to-month.
