Ductless AC units are gaining popularity in local homes and businesses, and it’s not hard to see why. Traditional units with invasive ductwork used to take upwards of a week to install in your house.

A ductless system can be up and running in as little as one day. Besides just installation woes being reduced, more and more people are becoming aware of the perks of switching over from their old system.

  • Improved air quality. No ducts to collect and retain dust, dirt or bacteria.
  • Lower carbon foot print. Ductless air conditioning systems use a refrigerant called R410A, which is utilized for zero ozone depletion.
  • Installation is much easier. No need to provide space for ducts. Many owners of older houses simply don’t have the option of retrofitting their homes to accommodate ductwork. At least not without effectively eliminating a great deal of closet space.
  • Efficiency of cool air distribution. Up to 25% of cold air generated by an AC unit can be lost in ductwork on it’s way to the appropriate room in your house.
  • They can be quieter than traditional Air Conditioners, usually providing a low-level background hum.
