Mini-split systems have minimal ducted solutions, so they avoid energy losses associated with ductwork of central forced air systems. Duct losses can account for more than 30% of energy consumption for space conditioning, especially if the ducts are in an unconditioned space such as an attic, crawl space or basement.
Central air systems require expensive and intrusive ductwork. Anyone who has priced out having central air installed understands how prohibitively expensive it is! Ductless utilizes one or more indoor unit to move warm or cool air inside the room, meaning you have the freedom to only use energy in the rooms that you are using. It also gives you the freedom to maintain separate temperatures in each room, giving your family the ultimate zoning for flexible comfort.
Ductless mini-splits can be installed in any size home because of their flexible installation design. Indoor units can also be mounted in a variety of locations with options on the wall, floor or ceiling.
