Top 3 Reasons to Switch to Ductless Heating and AC

Want to get the same level of whole-home comfort as everyone else in the neighborhood? Don’t think you can without any air ducts? Think again. A ductless heating and air conditioning system is an excellent choice for many homeowners without any ducts. This works like a heat pump to move heat from the air inside to the air outside in the summer, and vice versa (from outside to in) in the winter. Here’s what makes this so beneficial.


We know that this is implied in the name, but the benefits of going without an air duct upgrade are many.

  • Installing air ducts is time consuming.
  • Ducts tend to leak and make the AC and heater less efficient.
  • Some home construction makes adding ducts nearly impossible.
  • You can add a ductless blower to many rooms or only one so that you don’t have to add on ductwork when you are adding a room to your home.

2. Zone control

Zone control is the ability to control the temperature in one room of the home without affecting the temperature in the other rooms or zones. A zone control system helps to cut down on bickering among family members over what the temperature should be throughout the home, since each person can potentially control the temperature in the room they are currently in.

3. Efficiency

A ductless mini split is a highly efficient heating and air conditioning system. It uses the heat from the air around it to heat a home—a more efficient process than other methods of heat production. And if you find a system with a high SEER and the ENERGY STAR seal, it should be efficient for cooling as well.
