Why Should a Ductless Mini-Split Be Your Next Home Comfort Installation?

One of the biggest benefits to choosing a ductless mini-split heat pump system over a conventional central air conditioner is that you don’t have to worry about ductwork. Many smaller or older homes across the country lack ducts. Installing this ductwork can be a pain, as it is both inconvenient and costly.

Ductless systems, however, provide a solution to this problem. Convenient installation isn’t even the only benefit. We’ve highlighted below a few of the great advantages that exist when you choose to have this type of system installed.


Central AC systems and traditional heat pumps force conditioned air through ducts to cool your entire home at one time. This is ideal for some homes, but not all. Ductless systems deliver air directly into different zones within your home. This allows you to accommodate as many cooling preferences as needed in your home.


Utility costs have skyrocketed in recent years. However, ductless systems rely on much less power than conventional forced-air systems, and also operate much more efficiently due to their zoning capabilities. Therefore, you don’t have to cool unoccupied rooms, and you aren’t making your AC work as hard. This makes a ductless system more affordable to run month-to-month than traditional central systems.

Improved Indoor Air Quality

Your indoor air quality could actually be worse than that of the outdoors. This is particularly true this time of year. The ducts included with traditional HVAC systems can make this even more challenging. If they are damaged they could be leaking allergens and other harmful contaminants into your home.

Since a ductless system uses no ducts, you do not run this risk. Just by its design, your ductless system can significantly reduce a number of pollutants and contaminants. These include dust, bacteria, pollen, allergens and a number of other particulates.
