A ductless mini-split system is a way of heating and cooling your home. It’s often used in new additions instead of running ductwork. There are several benefits to having one of these systems installed in your home.

Energy Efficiency

One of the best things about ductless mini-split systems is that they’re very energy efficient. In the typical home, about 25% of energy is lost in the ductwork. No energy is wasted in this way when you have a ductless mini-split system.

Another way they’re energy-efficient is that they have inverter-driven compressors. This type of compressor speeds up and slows down based on need. This is more energy-efficient than other heating and cooling systems that turn on and off all the time.


Ductless mini-split systems are versatile. They can be used in room additions, finished basements, converted garages, and rarely used rooms. A single outdoor unit can typically heat and cool up to four rooms. Each room’s temperature can be independently controlled by a thermostat.

Other Advantages of Ducted Systems

Ductless mini-split systems are very quiet when operating. Only a single small hole needs to be drilled in an interior wall to install one in a room. This makes them simpler to install than traditional furnaces and air conditioners. These systems improve the indoor air quality of the room they’re located in.


No heating and cooling solution is perfect. One downside to ductless mini-split systems is that they’re more expensive to install than a furnace or air conditioner. They also require regular maintenance, such as washing the filter every month.
