What Is a Ductless Air Conditioner & How Does It Work?

A ductless air conditioner is an air conditioning system that doesn’t require ductwork to deliver cool air to your home. Many people don’t have air conditioning because they have either a house without ducts or a central AC that isn’t working well.

A ductless HVAC system can keep you cool without bothering with your central air conditioner or ducts. Instead, mini-split air conditioners use a small outdoor unit with a compressor attached to several quiet indoor coolers that can be installed near the ceiling or above doorways.

Each ductless cooling unit can be operated individually, allowing for effortless zoning and maximized efficiency. Here are a few places you can install split system air conditioning:

  • Finished basements
  • Guest houses
  • Pool houses
  • Garages
  • Workshops
  • Sunrooms
  • Home additions

Benefits of Ductless Mini-Splits

There are many advantages to installing a ductless mini-split air conditioning system in your Northern Virginia home, including:

  • Improved energy efficiency: Because mini-splits have no ducts, they avoid the energy losses associated with ductwork of central forced air systems. Air ducts can account for more than 30% of energy loss, especially if the ducts are in an unconditioned space such as an attic.
  • Design flexibility: With a ductless system, you can choose the most convenient placement in your home. It can be suspended from a ceiling, mounted flush into a drop ceiling, or hung on a wall.
  • Easy installation: Without the need to install ductwork in your home, you can easily install a ductless mini-split system — with the help of a professional — in your Northern Virginia home.

Adding a ductless mini-split to your Falls Church, VA home will make it more comfortable, and you won’t have to worry about seeing or hearing a clunky machine in every room.

Ductless air conditioning is convenient for anyone with an older home because you can enjoy modern cooling without renovating.
