Ductless mini-split cooling and heating systems are getting more popular throughout the Boston and New England region and for good reason. These types of units run quietly but are powerful enough to heat and cool your home effectively. They’re also relatively inexpensive and easy to install.

Ductless systems are generally not attached to a wall-mounted thermostat, which also helps cut down on installation time, cost, and effort. Instead, they are regulated using a remote control. You also have the option to add an accessory that allows you to control each zone from your smartphone or tablet.

Is Ductless System Right For Your Home?

Our skilled technicians have years of experience installing ductless systems in homes and businesses across the North Shore. A Ductless system is the best solution for people who need an efficient heating and cooling system, and:

  • Don’t want to manage a long construction process; it takes 1-2 days on average to install a ductless system.
  • Have homes with radiators that don’t currently have ductwork. Ductless systems are easy to install and usually only require a three-inch hole through a wall for the conduit.
  • Have an older home that can’t use ducting due to insufficient space.
  • Are adding onto a home, such as sunrooms and garage apartments.
  • Trying to downsize. If you rarely use several rooms in your home, it may be best to make the main thermostat run minimally and install ductless system in your master bedroom and main living area.
  • Have multiple family members sharing the same living space. Ductless systems allow each to maintain different zones of your house at different temperatures.

Where to Install Ductless Systems?

A Ductless System can be installed almost anywhere you would like precise, energy-efficient cooling and heating. Here are some of the most common applications:

  • Older homes
  • New construction
  • Condos
  • Townhouses
  • Basements and Attics
  • Garages/Workshops
  • In-law suites
  • Rooms without proper airflow/ductwork
  • Manufactured/Mobile homes

Benefits of Going Ductless

  • Lower cost: installing a ductless system is less expensive than installing a ducted system.
  • Energy Efficiency: Ductless systems do not need to push air through extensive ductwork in your home. Instead of turning on and off, they run at variable speeds and can gradually increase or decrease fan speeds to cool your home, making them more energy efficient.
  • Zoning: Each indoor unit is its own zone so different rooms can be at different temperatures.
  • Versatility: A single outdoor unit can be connected up to 8 indoor ductless system units. You can cool or heat each area of your home to the desired temperature. You can also choose a single unit to add on to an existing HVAC system.
  • Ease of installation and use: Ductless systems can be installed with limited disruption to your home as they generally require nothing more than a small hole in the wall where you wish to have them mounted.

Why You Might Not Want a Ductless System

A Ductless System can be installed almost anywhere you would like precise, energy-efficient cooling and heating. Here are some of the most common applications:

  • There is an investment in a ductless system. For a single room, ductless units can be more costly than window units.
  • Although it doesn’t require a lot of work to maintain your system, you’ll have to wash each unit’s filter monthly (more often if you smoke or have pets).
  • Ductless units aren’t aesthetically flexible. They come in standard white, beige, silver or black, and can’t be covered.

What You Need to Know About Ductless Systems

Proper system sizing and installation is critical to making the most of a ductless system. If the sizing is wrong, the system won’t operate efficiently, even interfering with humidity control and increasing electricity bills.
