3 Reasons to Consider Ductless Air Conditioning

Has the time come to replace your home cooling system? Do you have a new property and are considering the different ways in which you may choose to keep it cool and comfortable during the hottest time of the year? We recommend that you give ductless air conditioning in Miami, FL some serious thought. When you choose to use a ductless mini split HVAC system, you can count on cooling your home effectively, and enjoying a few benefits that a more traditional central cooling system just cannot match. Read the following information, and be sure to give us a call if you think that ductless air conditioning is right for you.

Ductless AC in living room


A major source of inefficiency in many homes throughout the country is leaky ductwork. When all of the air that you’ve paid to cool with your AC travels throughout your air ducts, you really need to be able to count on those ducts to function properly. Too often, this is simply not the case. Because ductless ACs do not use ductwork, you won’t have to worry about inefficiency due to leaks. Plus, the individual blowers in the system are regulated with independent thermostats, allowing for simple zone control to further boost efficiency.

Air Quality

When your air ducts leak, you don’t only have air leaking out to worry about. You must also worry about pollutants making their way into the system. In order to protect your indoor air quality, eliminating ductwork actually makes a lot of sense. You will no longer have to worry about your air distribution system distributing pollutants throughout your home, as well.


Because ductless mini splits can utilize heat pump technology, they are also very versatile. You can use them to effectively cool your home in the summer months, and to heat your home with outstanding efficiency during the chillier nights of our mild winters. All in all, ductless mini splits make for efficient comfort all year long.
