Ductless Mini-Split Installations are ideal for:

  1. Room add-ons: Ductless mini-split systems are a common heating and cooling solution for room additions. They are less complicated and more flexible than traditional central air systems. Installing or extending current ductwork is not always practical. Ductless mini-split systems offer a space-saving solution with the ability to be wall mounted, floor mounted, or ceiling suspended without the hassle or expense of installing additional ductwork.
  1. Antique or older homes: Ductless mini-split systems are not susceptible to energy loss through dirty, leaky, or inefficient ductwork – a problem often associated with older or antique homes. “Going ductless can mean changing indoor climates, from variable and unpredictable, to cool and consistent, without expensive renovation work or compromising the structure’s integrity.” (Fujitsu) Mini-split systems are ductless, meaning they do not have to be retrofitted to fit current ductwork. A ductless system would prevent the energy losses associated with older homes without sacrificing heating or cooling efficiency.

  1. Above-garage room, basement, or other poorly circulated rooms: Have a room that always seems to be colder in the winter and hotter in the summer, despite the AC or heat being turned on? This is a common occurrence with over-the-garage rooms but can occur in other parts of the house as well. Ductless mini-split systems offer a reliable and cost-friendly heating and cooling option for rooms that are insufficiently serviced by traditional air-to-air systems. Rather than use a space heater or in-window AC unit, ductless mini-split systems provide a relatively versatile and unobtrusive way to heat or cool a room that has insufficient airflow.

Other Room Considerations

Ductless systems can be “zoned” to heat and cool individual rooms in ways that a traditional system cannot. Each “zone” has its own thermostat, allowing the homeowner to heat or cool individual rooms at will. Ductless systems are also extremely quiet, making them perfect for sound sensitive rooms such as offices or children’s rooms.
