For decades, central air conditioning has been considered a “nice-to-have” feature in a home. However, increasingly warmer summers and the dangers of heat exhaustion have made it a must-have for more and more households.

Yet central air is not always the best or possible solution. For example, a home’s design may make the installation of ductwork challenging or cost prohibitive. A room addition, garage conversion, or basement finishing can add livable square feet that the current AC system simply can’t support.

So what’s a homeowner to do? Well, you can install several noisy, unattractive window units that do little to cool an entire room, and are inefficient to boot. Or, you can choose a ductless HVAC system.

Read on to learn why more and more homeowners are turning to ductless air for their home comfort needs.


One of the primary benefits of a ductless air system is the ability to deliver individualized comfort to each room or area of a home. A traditional air conditioning system cools the entire home, which can be inefficient and expensive. Ductless air allows you to control the temperature for each area separately, depending on your needs and your home’s design. This results in great efficiency and comfort.

Heating & Cooling

With a ductless air system you can have a heating and cooling system all in one for year-round comfort, which maximizes the benefits of your investment. Let’s say you’ve converted your garage into a workshop or studio. Traditionally, it’d be stuffy hot in the summer and freezing come winter, and therefore only usable six months out of the year at best. The combined heating and cooling capability of a ductless air system means you can use that added space 24/7 – 365.


Ever try to enjoy a nice quiet evening at home with the hum of a window AC in the background? Doesn’t make for the most relaxing environment, does it? But because the major parts of a ductless air unit are installed on the exterior of your home, you can easily enjoy comfortable indoor conditions without any background noise.

No Ducts Needed

Perhaps one of the most obvious benefits of ductless air systems is that they are, well – ductless. This allows for easier and faster installation and eliminates the issues associated with keeping ducts clean, making sure there are no cracks or gaps to cause air leaks, and so on.


Ductless air units can be installed just about anywhere: in a converted garage, finished basement or attic, room addition, a second story that can benefit from supplemental cooling, and more. And this flexibility translates into greater efficiency and personalized control over a traditional HVAC system that heats and cools the entire home.
