What Are Ductless Vs. Ducted AC systems?

When it comes to climate control in your living or working space, choosing the right HVAC system is crucial. Ducted and ductless systems represent two popular options. In this article, we'll explore the key distinctions between ducted and ductless HVAC systems, focusing on the benefits of installing ductless AC systems in your home.

What are Ducted and Ductless HVAC Systems?
Ducted Air Conditioning
Ducted air conditioning, also known as central air conditioning, involves an indoor and outdoor unit, with the indoor unit typically hidden in the roof space. This system is designed to heat and cool an entire home or workplace by distributing air through a network of ducts.

On the other hand, ductless HVAC systems, or mini-splits, utilize individual, wall-mounted AC units to provide temperature control in specific rooms or areas. Unlike duct AC systems, ductless AC’s don’t have ducts in the walls to supply conditioner air from one room to another.  

Advantages of Ductless Systems
Cost-Effective Installation
Ductless AC’s are generally more affordable to purchase and install compared to ducted systems. The absence of complex ductwork reduces installation costs and provides a more budget-friendly option for users.
Independent Control
Ductless systems offer the flexibility of controlling the temperature of each indoor unit independently. This eliminates the need for additional zoning technology required by ducted AC systems, making them an excellent choice for larger spaces within your home that require precise temperature control.
Energy Efficiency
Ductless systems contribute to energy efficiency by minimizing the carbon footprint. The absence of ducting and the use of modern technologies, such as inverters, enable compressors to adjust their speed based on demand, resulting in reduced energy consumption. 
Easy Installation
Installing a ductless system is a relatively straightforward process compared to the complexities associated with ducted AC systems. Minimal disruption to walls or ceilings ensures a hassle-free installation experience when installing a mini split!
