Ductless air conditioning as an option for home comfort has taken off during the last two decades. Originally, ductless mini splits were used primarily for businesses (they are especially popular for restaurants) but their numerous benefits have made them impossible for homeowners to pass up.

3 of the Benefits of Ductless ACs
- They also provide heat: Ductless air conditioners are actually ductless mini split heat pumps. That means they can provide heating as well as cooling. Heat pumps are excellent for Florida weather, since they work as well as any standalone air conditioner of comparable size and can ably handle our mild winters while in heating mode.
- They help protect indoor air quality: One of the unfortunate problems with ductwork is that it collects dust, dirt, dander, and other contaminating particles, which is then blown out into your home’s air and recirculated. Only regular duct cleaning can prevent this. When you eliminate ducts with the installation of a ductless mini split, you take away this reservoir for pollutants and help keep your air healthier without the need for regular cleaning. If you have people with allergies or asthma living in your home, going ductless can make their lives much easier.
- Energy savings: Ductless mini split heat pumps send conditioned air into your home through wall-mounted blower units, each which connects to the outside unit. Because you can individually control the blowers, you only have to send conditioned air to the parts of the house that need it. Unlike a central AC, you don’t have to cool down the entire house each time the system comes on, and this will lead to a reduction in your utility bills. You will also reduce the energy loss that can happen along the length of ductwork, increasing your savings.
Ductless mini splits are not right for every home: they work best for new construction, remodeling, add-on rooms, or for older and historic homes that lack the room for ducts.
