Ductless Air Conditioning Ductless air conditioning, also called a ductless mini-split, is one of the fastest growing technologies in the air conditioning space and they are quickly gaining popularity. There was once a time, not long ago, when you had to have ductwork installed all around your house in order to enjoy the benefits of air conditioning. For people who had hot water boilers, or for people with older, insufficient ductwork, ductwork installation could be a costly investment. However, with the advent of ductless mini-splits, homeowners and business owners now have a more viable choice when it comes to heating their space. Ductless air conditioning works very similarly to conventional air conditioning systems. Both types of air conditioning have an outside unit called a condenser and both types have an indoor unit called an air handler. However, the difference in the systems lies within the handler. With a central air conditioning system, the air handler usually resides on top of a furnace or stands alone in the basement or attic of a house. The air handler then blows the cool air around the house via a network of ducts. With ductless mini-splits, on the other hand, the air handler portion is designed to be a lot smaller, hence the term “mini” split. The mini-split handler is so small, in fact, that the entire inside unit can be hung unobtrusively on a wall. The cool air doesn’t have to come through a network of ducts in order to reach its target room. The mini-split simply blows cool air right into the room where it is installed. Not only is this convenient, it’s efficient. Not sold yet? Here’s another bonus. All new models of ductless mini-splits not only provide cooling in the summer, but they also provide heating in the winter. This is a nice little feature, whether you decide to use it as a main source of heat, to supplement your existing heating system, or as an emergency backup in case your primary source of heat fails.
