Everything You Need to Know About Ductless Systems

ductless systems

Ductless cooling and heating systems are changing the game in the world of HVAC systems. Also known as mini-split systems, ductless systems are an excellent way to provide continuous climate control to one specific area. They’re incredibly energy efficient, convenient, and best of all, practically silent! You may be wondering what exactly ductless systems are and how they work, so let’s take a look!

What are Ductless Systems?

As their name suggests, ductless systems are heating and cooling systems that do not involve ductwork. They include one outdoor and one indoor unit, connected by refrigerant tubing and electrical wiring. Ductless systems are mounted to a wall indoors, which allows you to bring constant heating and cooling to one space. In addition to their main function, ductless units can provide homeowners with an array of benefits.

What are the Benefits of Ductless Systems?

Ductless cooling and heating systems are astonishingly energy-efficient thanks to their duct-free design. With your average HVAC system, you can lose more than 25% of your heating and cooling to ductwork. When you take away the ducts, you also take away lost heating and cooling.

Ductless units have a surprisingly easy and minimal installation process. All that is required is a small hole to be drilled into your wall for the refrigerant line connecting it to your new system. Installation can be completed in just one day and won’t interrupt your daily activities. Plus, their unique design allows them to be less vulnerable to air leakage and security issues! 

Another wonderful benefit of ductless systems is their flexibility. Unlike your typical systems where temperatures are distributed throughout the entire home, ductless systems allow you to independently heat or cool one particular space. For example, if your new sunroom addition gets hotter than other rooms in your house, a ductless system can provide customized air conditioning to that specific room. Although ductless systems can be installed virtually anywhere in a home, certain homes and rooms can benefit more than any other.

Is a Ductless System Right For You?

Ductless systems are ideal for:

  • Those who live in a smaller space
  • Those who are adding a room to their home
  • Rooms with heating or cooling issues
  • Older homes with no pre-existing ductwork
  • Those who live with people with different temperature preferences

Mitsubishi Electric Ductless Systems

Interestingly, ductless systems were invented as a solution to sweltering summers in Japan. Because Japanese homes are famously small and cannot fit typical heating and cooling systems, mini-splits were created by Mitsubishi to bring homes much-needed air conditioning that fit. In the 1970s, Mitsubishi Electric Ductless systems made their way to the United States and have revolutionized heating and cooling ever since.
