Ductless Air Conditioners: What Are They?

Ductless air conditioners are one of the most affordable types of HVAC systems available today. Ductless ACs are becoming increasingly common in older households as the installation of central air conditioning along with ductwork can be significantly expensive.

Ductless air conditioners are convenient in residential and commercial properties as they remove the hassle of having to install and uninstall air conditioners at the end of season. Window units are not only heavy but also take more space and are less energy efficient than ductless units.

How It Works

Ductless air conditioners take up little space, which is why they are commonly referred to as mini split ACs or ductless split systems. Ductless ACs consists of a compressor unit installed outside the home and an indoor unit that features a fan and is installed in the exterior wall near the ceiling.

The two units are connected via copper refrigerant lines without the need of any additional wiring. So when the unit is turned on, it works in pretty much the same way as traditional ACs but without the air ducts and additional equipment.


Benefits of ductless air conditioners include (but are not limited to):

  • You can install multiple units and cool specific areas in the home for zoned cooling.
  • Easy to keep consistent temperature
  • Improves indoor air quality

More importantly, ductless air conditioners are more energy efficient and produce less noise pollution as compared to their traditional counterparts.
