What is a Ductless Air Conditioner?
In facilities where the building can’t accommodate ductwork, a split ductless system may be the best solution. The split ductless system has an outside condenser. Tubing runs from the condenser to high-mounted blowers inside the building, which blow the cooled air throughout the building.
Benefits of having a Ductless System
A ductless system is ideal in situations where ductwork would be impossible or impractical. Sometimes, a building doesn’t have the capacity for ductwork without expensive or major renovations. Other times, such as in areas like garages, adding the room to the central air is often dangerous and illegal because of the possibility of CO2 emissions backdrafting into the home. In cases such as these, a ductless system becomes an easy solution that satisfies the need for cooling without compromising on safety, while staying within economic restraints.
Ductless AC Installation
Ductless AC replacement is uncomplicated because it doesn’t involve ductwork, which can become a problem if it was designed for an existing furnace. A new ductless AC can be set up in the same layout as the older unit, or, apart from and existing furnace setup if the ductwork is impractical.

Is a Ductless AC unit more efficient than a central air conditioner?
Our customers sometimes ask if a ductless AC unit is more efficient than a system with ducts. The answer is that a ductless system doesn't lose any cool air through the ductwork, which does make it more efficient. However, a ductless system is primarily designed to ensure the comfort of one room. If the home has many rooms, the efficiency of the system which is designed to cool one open area falls drastically in other rooms unless one is prepared to add a ductless unit to every room, which can be impractical. A central air conditioner will have ducts which will provide widespread cooling.
What is the lifespan of a Ductless AC unit?
One disadvantage of a centralized heating system is that a heat pump only lasts eight to fifteen years, on average, whereas a ductless unit offers a 20 year lifespan, making it the clear choice for a long haul.
How loud is a Ductless AC unit?
Another advantage of ductless units is that they are fairly quiet, making up for the fact that they can take up quite a bit of space on the wall and be much more noticeable than a duct grille.
