Ductless Mini Split Systems

Trying to decide between a conventional air conditioning unit and a ductless mini-split system in Hudson? Either system may be right, depending on your needs and unique situation.

If you did not know, a ductless mini split system can go by a few different names. They are referred to as ductless air conditioners, mini splits, ductless heat pumps (more common in Northern states), and ductless mini split. A traditional AC system will have ductwork throughout the home, while a ductless mini split system controls the temperature for an individual room and not the entire house.

Here’s what you need to know about how ductless mini-split systems differs from traditional air conditioning systems and how Millian Aire AC & Heating can meet your temperature control needs with a brand new ductless system at a more affordable rate than you might expect.

You can also find current Energy Star rebates or tax credits based on your zip code.

Traditional AC Systems vs Ductless Mini Splits

Traditional AC units are much more common than ductless units. They consist of an outdoor compressor and an indoor unit. The air is heated or cooled in a central location and then distributed throughout your home via a network of ducts.

  • They can effectively warm or cool large houses through networks of extensive ductwork.
  • A well-maintained ducted system can last for 12 to 15 years.
  • Ductwork can lose up to 30% of energy consumption through leaks, holes, or poorly connected ducts, so good maintenance of the system is key to cost savings.
  • Your ductwork may also need to be sealed over time or replaced.

Ductless mini split units are known for their superb efficiency and easy, low-impact installation.

  • Instead of distributing air via ducts, these systems deliver it directly into different zones or rooms in your home from the unit itself.
  • Highly efficient since there’s no ductwork to leak conditioned air.
  • Adjust the temperature individually for each unit, great for people who prefer different temperatures or when rooms aren’t in use.
  • Ductless systems often result in long-term savings due to their efficiency and only cooling a single room and not the entire house.
  • May struggle to maintain heat in sub-zero temperatures, but that’s not likely to be a problem in Pasco County or much of Florida!

When Are Ductless AC Systems Useful?

New Spaces

Ductless AC systems are ideal for additions to your home, whether a sunroom, garage apartment, or that dream “man cave”.

A ductless unit can be accurately sized for the new space without affecting the air distribution in other parts of the home, or overburdening your existing HVAC system.

Homes With Unused Rooms

Have more house than you use? Opting for ductless systems might be a wise move for empty nesters, retirees, or anyone else with rooms they don’t always use. Traditional HVAC systems can lead to pressure imbalances and even mold problems when grilles are shut in unused rooms. Also, just shutting the grill usually doesn’t stop all the air flow.

On the other hand, a ductless system installed in the most frequently used rooms is a lot more efficient. The home’s main thermostat can be set to maintain air flow in all rooms, while the ductless systems maintain your desired temperatures in the spaces you use.

Targeted Control 

Ductless air conditioning units are ideal for households that want independent temperature zones in different rooms. It’s a lot more efficient and accurate than zoning in a conventional ducted system. Having no shared ducts mean no shared air. That means viruses, allergens, smells, and smoke won’t waft between rooms.

Extra Help

Perhaps your central system works fine for most of the house, but there’s that one room that only needs additional cooling or heating. It could be a cozy kitchen with oversized appliances and poor air flow that gets hot whenever you cook no matter what you set the thermostat to. Maybe it’s a room at the end of the house that the ducts just don’t seem to really reach.

A ductless unit can make up the difference in what your central system lacks.

No Ductwork

Live in a home without existing ductwork? Going ductless isn’t the cheapest option on the market, it’s certainly less expensive than installing ductwork in an existent home, and doesn’t have the security or aesthetic downsides of window units.
