As the name implies, ductless air conditioning is a system that doesn’t use ducts to move cool air throughout your home. Also known as a mini-split, it has three main components.
Three Main Components
A ductless air conditioner system has an indoor unit. This is installed in the room you want to cool. There is an outdoor unit that is linked to the indoor unit through a conduit. The indoor unit is controlled by a remote.
Can It Only Cool One Room?
Some ductless air conditioning systems, single-zone mini-splits, can only have one indoor unit. There are also multi-zone mini-splits. One outdoor unit can be connected to up to five indoor units in this system.
Will It Only Provide Cool Air?
You can also use a ductless air conditioner to heat the rooms the indoor units are in. Instead of removing hot air from your home and expelling it outside, the system works in reverse when heating your home.

Why Would You Want a Ductless Air Conditioner?
This system is a cost-efficient choice when you want to cool and heat an addition to your home. It saves you the expense of having ductwork installed. Additionally, your existing HVAC system may not be able to handle the additional space in your home.
A ductless air conditioner is also a good choice if you are downsizing a large home. There may be rooms you no longer want to heat and cool, and this system gives you that option. Another reason to choose this system is if you have an older home with no ductwork, and it would be difficult and expensive to have installed.
