What Are Ductless Air Conditioners and How Do They Work?

Unlike traditional air conditioning systems that rely on ducts to distribute cool air, ductless air conditioners, also known as mini-splits, deliver air directly into different zones in your home.

Ductless air conditioners consist of two main components:

  • The outdoor compressor unit compresses the refrigerant and pushes the gas into the indoor unit(s) through the conduit.
  • Once the refrigerant reaches the indoor unit, it passes through a series of coils that help to distribute cool air into the room. A fan inside the indoor unit blows over the coils, distributing cold air directly into the room.

Will I Save Money With a New Ductless AC System?

Switching from a traditional AC system to a ductless one can see considerable cost savings over time. However, the amount you save can depend on various factors, such as your home’s size, local climate, and the energy-efficiency rating of the unit you choose.

You will save money and use less energy with a new ductless AC, and here’s how:

  • Ductless systems can be up to 30% more energy-efficient than traditional forced-air systems. They avoid the energy losses associated with ductwork. Going ductless could reduce energy waste significantly, especially if your ducts are in an uninsulated space like an attic.
  • While a traditional system pushes air into your entire home, ductless systems allow you to cool just the rooms you’re using. By reducing unnecessary cooling, you could see a drop in your energy consumption and more savings in your pocket.
  • Maintenance costs are often lower with ductless systems. You won’t need to worry about expensive duct cleaning, and ductless systems tend to have fewer mechanical problems than traditional AC systems, which means less money is spent on repairs over the system’s life span.
  • Ductless systems typically have a longer life span than traditional AC units, saving you money over the long term by reducing the need for replacement.

How Do Ductless ACs Compare to Traditional AC Systems?

It’s good to know what your priorities and needs are when deciding whether or not to upgrade your AC. Generally, ductless systems are more energy-efficient and cost-effective. They’re also simple for a trained professional to install. Another key benefit of installing a mini-split is the lower noise level compared to traditional AC.
