Ductless Air Conditioners

How They Work

Ductless Air Conditioners

Ductless air conditioners, sometimes called mini-split air conditioners, are most commonly used in homes or sections of homes, such as room additions, which do not already have ductwork or where extending or installing distribution ductwork for a central air-conditioner is not feasible. If your home already has ductwork, then a ducted heat pump may be the better solution for you.

Since ductless air conditioners have no ducts, they avoid the energy losses associated with ductwork of central air-conditioners. Duct losses can account for more than 30% of energy consumption for air conditioning, especially if the ducts are in an unconditioned space such as an attic.
