Ductless Air Conditioning
Air Conditioning Options for Homes without Ductwork
Ductless air conditioning units and heating systems are fantastic ways to control the temperature of a specific area of a home. If you are interested in a new heating or air conditioning system, consider a ductless air conditioner. Ductless air conditioning units are also called mini-splits, and work exactly like a central heating and cooling system, but on a smaller scale.
They include all of the same features as a traditional central air system, and also include some added benefits. AdvantAir’s technicians are fully prepared and capable to help you choose from the many air conditioning options. Give us a call today!

What is a ductless air conditioning unit?
Ductless air conditioning units are exactly what their name says they are: Central air conditioning systems without ductwork.
Ductless systems are growing more and more common in single-family homes as well as small offices and small commercial buildings. They are nearly identical to what your traditional air conditioning system is, except on a smaller scale.
The ductless split system has two major components:
- An outdoor compressor
- An indoor air-handling unit that are connected via a simple conduit that contains refrigerant and electrical lines and is usually wall mounted
Since ductwork is not an issue, this makes installing one in your home much cheaper, and much faster than installing a traditional HVAC system.
All our technicians would need to do is take your information of where you would like your air handler located, and drill a small 3-inch hole in your wall to connect the components, and that’s it! Not only do you save money from temperature-loss associated with ductwork, but mini-splits also have their own zone controls allowing you to control a single room at a time.
Mini spilt AC units are perfect for:
- Single-family homes.
- Homes with no previous ductwork.
- Vacation homes.
- Add-on rooms such as a sunroom.
- Small offices or workspaces.

Ductless split systems are fantastic options for homes with no ductwork, as they require none, and are even better for add-on rooms like sunrooms. If you install multiple ductless split systems, you could use multiple thermostats to control individual temperature zones. Heat or cool a room when you want to, turn it off when you aren’t there!
