Are Ductless Air Conditioners Worth It?
“Ductless” is the newest and hottest buzzword in the HVAC world, but what exactly are ductless air conditioners and are they worth the investment? In a previous blog post we explained what a ductless mini-split system is, but briefly, it is a system that operates very similarly to your standard AC unit, except that doesn’t require bulky ductwork. It has an indoor and an outdoor unit connected by a tube that is just big enough for the refrigerant to pass through. And then the cooling and return is done all though the indoor unit.
But are these ductless systems worth the investment? At Arctic Air Conditioning, we say, “Yes!” Keep reading to learn more.

Why Ductless Air Conditioners Are Worth It
Here’s why our experts think ductless air conditioners are worth your investment:
They are minimally invasive—meaning simple installations.
This is especially important for older homes that never had ductwork or central heating and air installed because a ductless air conditioner can be installed with minimal disruptions to your home. Central HVAC systems require complicated ductwork to be added, meaning ripped up drywall and weeks of construction. Ductless systems, on the other hand, only require a hole just big enough for the refrigerant tube to pass through—it’s as simple as that.
They are incredibly energy efficient.
Ductless air conditioners are incredibly energy efficient. In fact, Mitsubishi mini-split systems have a SEER (seasonal energy efficiency ratio) of up to 30.5! Central air conditioners today tend to top out around 28.
They are a cost-effective replacement solution.
Replacing an aging air conditioner is an investment, but with ductless systems, the cost can be lower, depending on the systems you are comparing. Learn more about the prices and systems we have available by giving us a call!
They keep your home cool and comfortable, no matter the outdoor temperature.
A ductless air conditioner will keep your home just as comfortable as a central air conditioner. The temperature is regulated unit-by-unit so you can have complete control of the temperature throughout your home.
They are simple to use and control.
Ductless air conditioners from Mitsubishi come with a remote control that lets you easily control the temperature in your home. It’s as simple as point and click to set the temperature.
