The Benefits of Ductless Mini-Splits

No ductwork? Ductless A/C provides efficient, long-lasting cooling.

ductless ac There was a time when a home cooling system was considered a luxury, and homes weren’t being built with central air conditioning in mind. Today, we can all appreciate that a dependable and efficient A/C system is necessary to safeguard your family’s comfort and safety on sweltering summer days.

But what if you live in a Middlesex or Norfolk County home that doesn’t have ductwork to accommodate central A/C? Many homeowners in our part of eastern Massachusetts may try to get by with loud, cumbersome window A/C units. At Needham Oil Complete Heating & Cooling, we sell, install and service an alternative cooling system that runs better, looks better and can ensure your home comfort all summer long. It’s called a ductless mini-split system.

What is a ductless mini-split system?

Ductless mini-splits cool air in your home using two main components: an outdoor condenser unit and an indoor air handling unit mounted in your home. These two units connect via a thin line through your walls. Multiple air handlers can connect to a single outdoor condenser, so you can customize how much space you want to cool down.

The air handler absorbs heat from inside our home and expels it outside. Then, cool air is returned to your living space. Upgrading from window units to ductless A/C has some considerable benefits.

Benefit #1: Efficient Zoned Cooling

Central A/C systems normally cool every part of your home to the same temperature, but ductless systems have a more energy-efficient and cost-effective method. It’s called zoned cooling. Each indoor air handler in your system functions independently. You can keep some rooms cooler than others and save money on energy.

Benefit #2: No Duct-Losses

When your permanent cooling system is a ductless mini-split, you don’t need to worry about losing cool air through leaky ducts. That’s a big deal. The U.S. Department of Energy has found that duct losses can account for over 30% of A/C-related energy consumption.

Benefit #3: Quick, Versatile and Discreet Installation

The process of adding ductwork to a home can take days and means giving up living space throughout your house. On the other hand, ductless mini-split systems can typically be installed in one day.

These products are compact, whisper-quiet and sleekly designed to match your indoor décor. Plus, we can work with you to find the most discreet and effective placement for your air handlers.

Benefit #4: Long Service Life

If you take care of your ductless A/C system, it will be with you for a long time. Properly-maintained mini-splits have a service life of 20 years or more before needing to be replaced.
