At AirVantage, we are seeing increasing requests for information on ductless ac units also known as Split AC systems.
The Advantages of Ductless Heat Pumps…
“Ductless” mini-split heat pumps differ from the central air conditioning systems that funnel chilled or heated air through a duct system installed through-out commercial and residential structures. If you’ve traveled to the Caribbean, Europe or Asia, it’s likely you might have noticed these ductless systems in hotels, restaurants and homes.
Here’s some common reasons for considering a split ductless system from traditional home heating and cooling systems:
They Provide both heating and cooling through a single device – a heat pump. Heat pumps have been used, mainly in Southern climates, for decades.
Save money by avoiding ductwork. Instead of difficult-to-install, leaky and bulky ductwork, ductless mini-split heat pumps use an indoor unit connected to an outdoor unit via refrigerant lines.
Climatize each room according to individual needs each indoor unit can provide custom heating and cooling temps by using a remote control device or smart phone app.
Mini-split heat pumps use 60% less energy than standard home electric resistance-based heating systems because they transfer instead of generate heat.
Cut cooling costs by 30%. The EnergyStar website reports that compared to conventional room air conditioners, certified ductless min-split heat pump systems also incorporate more sophisticated compressors & fans that can adjust speeds to save energy.

As we’ve written above, ductless heating and cooling systems are a practical, functional, energy saving alternative to ducted central air conditioning systems.
Many families are building separate structures on their properties for aged parents. Including a ductless ac system in the plans is a good way to save money on construction costs while providing energy savings. Custom settings, like keeping the bedroom split unit off during the day, and programming the remote to turn on automatically an hour before bedtime reduce energy consumption.
