Are Ductless HVAC Systems Really Better?


Two people enjoying ductless mini split air conditioning.

Air conditioning has come a long way, and now with so many options to choose from, it’s hard to know what the best choice is for your home. Ductless systems are often pitted against traditional HVAC systems with ductwork because they offer a more energy efficient way to cool your home.

But that’s not all they’re good for. Let’s talk about the benefits of ductless HVAC systems and whether or not you’ll be scheduling ductless HVAC installation in the near future.

They Distribute Air Better Than Duct Systems

Imagine the force that your air conditioner needs to use to send air from the source to a room all the way on the other side of the house. There’s a good amount of lost air just from how much it has to move. As a result, you may notice that rooms at the furthest point from the air conditioner run into an issue with staying cool.

Ductless units cool the spaces that they’re in. They produce enough cold air to cool off an entire room from a single source without being forced through a duct to get there.

Ductless HVAC Saves You Money Over Time

There’s something called a SEER energy rating that determines how efficient an air conditioner is based on the season. In general, ductless units perform better than traditional HVAC units on a regular basis.

With a better energy efficiency rating, you save money, but that’s not the only way. Because you don’t have to cool an entire home when you turn your air conditioner on, you’re not wasting money cooling rooms that don’t require it.

They’re Better for Allergy Sufferers

Ducts fill with dust over time, which are slowly sent out into the air as it’s pushed through. That dust and debris finds its way into the direct air that you breathe, and allergy sufferers begin to sneeze.

Even though there is an air intake with a filter that traps dust, it can’t trap everything. There are no ducts to worry about with ductless units, and the air filters are easy to clean so you can always know that you’re breathing the cleanest air possible.

Reduces Maintenance Over Time

Without ducts, there’s less to maintain. In general, ductless AC units are easier to maintain because everything is right in front of you. You can inspect a ductless unit far easier than you can inspect ductwork, and there are less parts to maintain.

While we can’t predict how much your next repair will be, ductless AC units are typically cheaper to repair than traditional HVAC units. Since you can choose to use multiple units to cool your home, you can always have air conditioning even if one unit breaks.
