Ductless HVAC Systems

Ductless Heating & Cooling Systems for Columbus, Ohio Homes

Ductless heating and cooling systems are a great alternative for homes that are not equipped to use central heating and cooling equipment like forced air furnaces or conventional air conditioners and heat pumps. Also known as ductless mini splits, these HVAC systems can be used as a whole house heating and cooling solution, to provide supplemental heating and cooling, or to offer comfort control in new areas of the home not served by an existing central HVAC system, such as a new home addition or a recently renovated attic room.  

Without the need for ducts, ductless heating and cooling systems operate with high efficiency levels. This split system is composed of an outdoor heat pump or air conditioner that is connected to one or more indoor air handlers. The air handlers are installed on a wall or ceiling and distribute conditioned air directly into the space they serve. This type of heating and cooling system is a much more energy efficient and secure option than window air conditioners and baseboard heating.

Should You Consider a Ductless HVAC System? 

In certain applications, the use of a ductless system offers advantages over conventional central heating and cooling equipment. You should consider going ductless if: 

  • You want to add heating and cooling to a new home addition or space that is not connected to the home’s central heating and cooling system. 
  • The members of your family prefer different climates in their living areas. 
  • You’re adding a cooling system to a home that does not have a duct system and/or does not have the space to install new ducts. 
  • You want to improve comfort in specific areas of the home that are not kept comfortable by the central heating and cooling system. 

Benefits of Ductless Mini Split Heating and Cooling 

  • Energy Efficiency: Ductless heating and cooling systems offer high energy efficiency ratings. Without ducts, air leakage is eliminated, improving system efficiency right off the bat! Less energy will be used to heat and cool your home, which reduces your household’s environmental impact and carbon footprint. 
  • Customized Comfort Control: Each air handler is operated independently from others by a remote. This allows one family member to turn up or down the temperature in one area, without adding or stopping heating and cooling in another area. Everyone can keep their spaces at the perfect temperature, which is difficult when central HVAC systems are used as they only have one thermostat to control conditions across the home. 
  • Quiet Operation: The air handlers installed in the home are very quiet as they run, so you won’t notice much noise as your room reaches a comfortable temperature! 

Drawbacks of Ductless Heating and Cooling Systems 

  • More Maintenance Needs: Each air handler has its own air filter, unlike central HVAC systems which use only one air filter. These filters need to be replaced or washed if reusable on a regular basis, about every month or so. 
  • Aesthetics: While many equipment options are available in a range of styles to blend with the look of your rooms, some people don’t like the appearance of large HVAC equipment inside their home. 
  • Upfront Costs: Installing a ductless heating and cooling system can cost more than central HVAC systems, depending on the configuration of the system and how many units will be needed, compared to the home’s needs to support a new central unit. However, the energy savings generated over time will help pay off the cost of the system.
