Dick Air Conditioning is happy to replace your AC for you, and we excel in ductless air conditioning services.

What is a Ductless Air Conditioner?

This may seem a bit obvious, but a ductless air conditioner is one which does not use air ducts in order to cool a home. Instead, such systems utilize individual, wall-mounted blowers in order to distribute cooled air throughout a home. These blowers connect to an outdoor unit, much like that in a ducted system, via a simple conduit containing power, refrigerant, and, as needed, drainage lines. There are many benefits that such a system has to offer.

Benefits of Using a Ductless Mini Split

Chief among the many benefits that ductless air conditioners has to offer is the elimination of air loss leading to reduced efficiency via leaky ductwork; after all, if there is no ductwork, it cannot leak. By forgoing the use of ductwork, the ductless mini split can also help to protect indoor air quality, as pollutants will not make their way into ductwork, only to be distributed about the entire house via this system. A major benefit that you should also give some attention is the fact that ductless mini splits can also utilize heat pump technology. This means that they can reverse their operation in order to use existing heat in order to warm your home during the winter season. Our mild winter weather is ideally suited for this heating style. Also, you can heat and cool different areas of your home to different temperatures, as each blower is independently controlled by its own thermostat. Contact us today to learn more.
