Consider Going Ductless with Your Next AC Installation

Posted on: March 21, 2016

Are you thinking of replacing your AC system this cooling season? With spring here and temperatures already reaching 70-80 degrees, there is no better time to do so than now. When it comes to replacing an older air conditioner, you have many options. One of these options is ductless cooling.

Ductless systems don’t require ducts in order to move air throughout your home. Instead, they use individual room units to cool that particular space. Why should you consider a ductless cooling system?

No Ducts

As mentioned previously, ductless systems don’t require ducts. This makes ductless cooling an ideal choice if you don’t already have ducts in your home. Many small homes don’t have room for bulky ductwork, plus installing ducts can be inconvenient and costly.

Another benefit of ductless systems is that there is no risk of air loss. Ducts often run through attics or crawlspaces, allowing air to leak through the ducts into that space. Cooling these unoccupied spaces is a waste of both energy and money.

Increased Comfort/Air Quality

With a ductless system, each room in your home can be cooled according to your preferences. This is especially beneficial for homes with multiple occupants. In addition, the lack of ductwork reduces the likelihood of pollutants such as dust and pollen getting distributed throughout your home, decreasing the risk of allergy and asthma symptoms.


Ductless systems take up considerably less room than traditional central AC units do, offering more ease. Additionally, ductless systems can be used for heating, meaning that you don’t have to purchase two different components in order for your HVAC system to provide you with year-round comfort.
