Considering some heating and cooling updates to your home or a new addition on your house? Ductless heating and cooling systems offer the comfort of a central system without the hassle and expense of ductwork installation or rework.

6 Ways Ductless Mini Systems Are More Energy-Efficient:

1 – Less Air Loss

Heating and cooling systems that use ductwork to distribute air can lose 25% or more of your energy to ductwork leaks. While there are effective ways to seal up to 90% of leaks, such as our Aeroseal services, if you’re installing a new system the ductless mini split option may be the right choice for your specific needs.

2 – Less Wasted Energy

Mini split systems also use inverter-driven compressors. This means that when the unit is working to reach the desired comfort level, rather than stopping and starting the whole system like a traditional heating and cooling unit, the mini splits speed up or slow down based on the energy needed. This saves a lot of energy that would otherwise be lost.

3 – Cost Savings

With less wasted energy and fewer air leaks, the ductless units are able to offer great cost savings on your utility bills, while still providing your home with excellent comfort.

4 – Safer

Unlike in-window air conditioning units, the ductless mini ACs are installed indoors and/or outside so that you do not have to leave a window unlocked – and more susceptible to unwanted entry.

5 – Attractive Design

Additionally, when compared to a window AC unit, the sleek and modern design of a mini system has a more aesthetically pleasing look for any of your interior spaces.

Live in a small home or a separate garage apartment, or have a room that needs some extra air power? The single-zone ductless system is a great option for you. Both air conditioning and heating units are available, and both offer cost savings, a streamlined installation process without ductwork, and powerful production of hot or cool air to keep you comfy.


Excellent for homes with several rooms, this option delivers the comfort of a central heating and cooling system with the energy-efficiency of a ductless system. Multi-zone ductless systems make it easy to connect just one outdoor unit to several indoor units, so your entire home gets the personalized comfort you’re looking for. Plus, the indoor units are available in a wide range of styles, from wall- and floor-mounted to concealed slim-duct and ceiling cassette options.
