How Does Ductless Air Conditioning and Heating Work?

The standard air conditioner/heat pump works as a split system, with an outdoor unit and indoor air handler connected to the ducts. A ductless mini split removes the single large indoor unit and replaces it with a series of smaller blowers. These blowers each contain a fan and refrigerant coil. They’re mounted on walls in different rooms, and connect through the back of the wall to the outdoor unit. Refrigerant circulates through them and the fans send the heated or cooled air directly into the living spaces.

Reasons to Consider a Ductless Mini Split Installation

What are the benefits of this type of comfort system?

  • Energy savings: Ductless mini splits use smaller motorized parts than split systems, so they draw less electrical power. The lack of ducts also means there is less loss/gain of heat and no energy wasted due to duct leakage.
  • Zone control: A ductless system has zone control built right in. Each blower can be controlled separate from the others, so there’s no need to have a blower on in an empty room. This is another way ductless systems save money, and it also provides individual comfort to the rooms.
  • Space saving: No ducts means ductless mini splits are options for homes that lack the space for a ventilation system. This is beneficial for both new home construction and older homes constructed before central air conditioning.
  • Better air quality: Ducts collect dust that can be blown into the air. A ductless system provides much cleaner air, which is great for people with allergies and asthma.
