Improves Energy Efficiency

Ductless HVAC units are highly efficient, able to heat and cool homes at a fraction of the cost of traditional systems. According to the Department of Energy, Energy Star certified ductless units use 60% less energy than conventional electric heating systems. Another advantage of ductless AC is that you can turn it off in unoccupied rooms, leading to further savings.

Improves Indoor Air Quality

Air ducts collect contaminants such as dust, dirt, mold and pet dander, all of which can negatively affect your indoor air quality. This is not something you have to worry about with a mini split air conditioner. Ductless systems operate without the use of ductwork, letting you enjoy a cleaner home, free from contaminants and germs.

Smaller and More Discreet

A ductless AC system is easier to install than a traditional HVAC unit. You also have a lot of flexibility when it comes to placement. Most people find mini split units to be more aesthetically pleasing than traditional cooling systems. Homeowners who want an even more discreet unit should consider a hidden ductless mini split, which is concealed within a wall, ceiling, attic, or crawl space.

Personalized Comfort

Having more control over your comfort is one of the biggest benefits of going ductless. Ductless HVAC operates through indoor single-room wall-mounted units that allow you to heat or cool specific areas of your house without having to heat or cool the entire home. This allows you to adjust the temperature in each individual room, ensuring total comfort for everyone in the household.

Temperature Control in Tricky Rooms and Harsh Climates

Ductless systems are ideal solutions for older homes, additions, and hobby spaces. Frequently working in the garage? A ductless unit can make this much more hospitable.

In Arizona’s harsh climate, a central air conditioning system is often not enough to cool an entire home on its own. Consider supporting your central cooling system with a ductless mini split system and say goodbye to pockets of heat and hello to consistent cooling.
