What Is a Ductless Mini Split AC System?
While mini splits are growing in popularity in the states, you still might not know what a mini split system is. Mini splits serve the functions of both heating and cooling while allowing you to control the temperature in individual rooms and spaces. This is great because each individual in the house can find the right temperature for them. They are composed of two main components - an indoor air handler unit and an outdoor compressor. They are quick and easy to install and all of the components fit into a small 3-inch hole in the wall.
These systems are a great option for new additions to a house, new construction, and whole homes. If you have non-ducted heating systems, a ductless mini-split AC system is a great option.
Advantages of Installing a Ductless Mini Split
There are many benefits to ductless mini split installation. Many homeowners are totally satisfied after installing a ductless mini split AC system. Here are some key advantages of mini AC systems:
- They are flexible: The great things about ductless mini systems are their size and your ability to control the temperature in each space or room in your home so that everyone can tailor the temperature to their own comfort level within the house.
- They can save you money: One key reason many homeowners make the switch is because of the amount of money they can save thanks to the efficiency of a mini system. They operate on less power, are smaller, and you have the ability to create zones in your home so you don’t have to be heating or cooling a space that is unoccupied.
- Quick & Easy Installation: Installing a ducted system can take a long time and can be a disruption to your daily schedule. Ductless systems are easy to install and run on small pipes that can fit in 3-inch holes making installation minimally invasive.

The Difference Between Mini Splits & Central AC
There are many differences between a ductless system and a traditional central air system. A ductless system will usually cost a little bit more than a central system with the same heating and cooling capacity, however, if you need to replace or install ductwork for your central AC system, it will cost a lot more than installing a mini ductless system. Central AC can take as long as a week to install while a ductless system takes about a day. Finally, ductless systems are more efficient than central systems and also produce better air quality.
