Ductless Mini-Split 101: Learn the Benefits

A ductless mini-split system is a perfect alternative to springing for an expensive central air system or replacing several window A/C units. An energy-efficient mini-split is composed of an outdoor unit and one or more indoor units. These units work together to cool your entire home or selected rooms efficiently. And unlike the eyesore of window A/C units, mini-splits are small, sleek, and can be affixed to any wall you choose. Forget the hassle of your old units and avoid renovation costs associated with adding ducted central air. Here are some more benefits of choosing ductless mini-split A/C:

  • Zoned cooling saves you energy and money
  • Since no ductwork is required, installation is quick and easy
  • Benefit from improved indoor air quality with newer equipment
  • Some systems can double as a supplemental heating source in winter to help offset fuel bills
