Ductless Air Conditioners

Ductless AC unit installation is rising in homes across America and for a good reason. No matter the time of year, ductless mini-splits are a suitable option for an array of homes as they deliver heating and cooling based on your needs. Below, we discuss the comparisons between ductless and ducted AC units and how a ductless mini-split may be the right choice for you and your home.

Iceberg Home Services is here to meet your ductless mini-split needs. Schedule an appointment with us by calling (863) 223-1849 or contacting us online today!

Ductless vs. Ducted AC Systems

While ductless mini-splits and ducted AC systems provide much-needed cooling, there are some notable differences between the two. As the name suggests, ductless units don’t require ductwork to operate, unlike conventional ducted AC systems. This makes mini-splits an ideal option for homes without existing ductwork. Additionally, ductless mini-splits can provide heating and cooling, making them a seamless choice for year-round use.

How Ductless Mini-Splits Work

Ductless mini-splits consist of one or more air handlers connected to an outdoor compressor by a refrigerant line. The air handlers are directly mounted to the walls in rooms you wish to heat or cool; generally, this system comes with a remote that makes it easy to control each unit’s temperature setting, allowing you to heat or cool each room independently based on different requirements or preferences.

Why Ductless Mini-Splits Are Right for Your Home

As discussed above, ductless mini-splits offer a slew of benefits virtually anyone can enjoy. When deciding on a suitable AC unit for your home, it’s essential to look at some key aspects. Considering ductless mini-splits don’t require ductwork to run, they are an excellent option for homes without existing ductwork, homes with new construction add-ons, and homes with rooms that aren’t frequently used.

They are also valuable for smaller homes and apartments as their small silhouettes are great for saving space; additionally, due to the lack of ductwork, these systems can preserve up to 25% of the energy that’s often wasted with traditional central air conditioning units — this will also inevitably result in lowered monthly costs!
