Why Ductless

If you struggle with installing and removing window air conditioners every summer and complain about losing the view out of your windows, or the convenience of opening them to fresh air, you are not alone in thinking there must be a better way.

In fact, there is. It's called ductless air conditioning. This technology can be used to heat or cool and is especially well-suited to homes and businesses built without central air systems. It is used increasingly in home improvement projects where a porch is enclosed or an attic is converted to bedrooms.

Every building and every situation presents its own problems with climate control. Architects and engineers have realized this for years and they have struggled to adapt air-conditioning technology to modern living and working demands. Ductless air conditioning systems now make the job much easier.

These systems use no ductwork or ducted air distribution. Because of that, there are few places where the systems cannot be installed. In addition to homes, the systems have been placed in thousands of offices, shops, motels and hotels, schools and universities, computer rooms, banks, hospitals, nursing homes and labs.

Going ductless can mean changing indoor climates from variable and unpredictable to comfortable and consistent, without expensive renovation work or compromising the integrity of the structure. And the work can often be done by a trained professional in a matter of hours.

Ductless systems are made up of four components: the condensing unit, located outside the building; the indoor unit, or units, which can be wall or ceiling mounted; thin refrigerant lines, which connect the outdoor unit to the indoor unit; and a wireless remote or wall monitor, which controls the entire system.

Simple copper tubing and electrical wiring connects the outdoor unit to indoor units. Refrigerant is pumped from the outdoor condenser coil and compressor through the tubing to the indoor unit or units. A fan then quietly distributes cool air drawn across the unit's evaporator coil.

According to the Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Institute, there are a number of benefits users get with a ductless system. These include:

  • Easy and clean installation.
  • Easy maintenance.
  • Efficient and quiet operation, with heating too.
  • Simple controls.
  • Attractive and efficient design.
  • Doesn't take up window space, which adds to the beauty and security of your home.



  • Going GREEN

    How can you go green? Quite simply, it starts in your home.

    Lowering your home' energy consumption not only saves you money every month and helps aid the environment - it also increases the value of your home. Energy Efficiency Building Performance Standards study concluded that home values increase by $20 per dollar reduced in annual utility costs.


  • Mitsubishi Ductless AC More Energy Efficient than Conventional Systems

    Recently, Mitsubishi Electric used energy modeling software to compare the energy efficiency of the INVERTER-driven ductless mini split systems with other types of HVAC systems, applying the climate conditions for several major U.S. cities. The result? Mitsubishi ductless mini split systems were consistently 25% or more efficient than conventional systems.
