What Are the Benefits of Ductless Air Conditioners?

Ductless air conditioners are beginning to gain popularity. Also known as mini-split systems, there are many benefits to installing a ductless air conditioner in your home. Let’s check out some of the benefits that will make you consider adding in one of these in the future.


When you purchase an Energy-Star ductless model, you can be assured that you can save up to 30% on your energy bills. Ductless models have inverter-driven compressors, meaning they can easily adjust to the needs of your home. With regular compressors in HVAC systems, you have to shut down and turn on your system entirely depending on your needs, which can result in significant energy loss in your home. 

Zone Control

It can be hard to pick a suitable temperature to keep everyone in the family happy. With ductless air conditioners, everyone can choose how they want to control the temperature in each room. No longer does there have to be an endless fight about how cold or hot the house should be.

Limited Damage

Unlike an outdoor unit in your window, there is only a small hole in the wall when installing a ductless air conditioner. This also makes them less likely to experience leakage or security problems. Units placed in windows or central air can often cause water damage or not work correctly if not repaired frequently; this is not a problem for ductless systems.

Improved Indoor Air Quality

Ductless systems provide filtrations that can prevent pollen and dust from wandering in your home. This multi-stage system allows your cool air to improve significantly. When using an eco-friendly refrigerant, you reduce your carbon footprint by keeping the environment healthy. 

Quiet Operation

Some air conditioning systems can be noisy, especially when they first start up or are older models. Ductless mini-split systems are known to be one of the quietest air conditioners on the market. They only produce around a 20-36 dB noise level compared to the average 48 to 60 dB from other AC machines.

W.F. Smith HVAC testimonial

WF Smith installed our old unit of the same make and model number about 15 years ago. I only needed service once in all that time ( thermostat ) so I was very happy along with great performance and super quiet operation. When I needed a new unit, the choice was obvious. Dave actually called me back a couple of times when I left a message regarding an install date. The unit was installed on time with no issues. I regard WF Smith as a first class professional operation.
