What is Ductless or Mini-Split Heating and Cooling?

Imagine you wanted to add-on to your house with an expanded bedroom or new living room. Adding additional air ducts and demands to your existing forced-air system might not be possible. For a situation like this, adding a mini-split or ductless heating and cooling system could be the perfect solution.

Retrofits and expansions are where these ductless systems are the most common in the United States. However, while still relatively uncommon, many new construction and home remodeling projects opt to use ductless systems for convenience and efficiency.

Ductless systems provide the ability to have separate heating and cooling zones for increased flexibility and potential energy savings. Another common reason that customers consider this type of system is to help maintain great indoor air quality.

While ductless systems are a great option to consider, they do have a few drawbacks that you may want to consider. Many homeowners think having heating and cooling appliances visible inside the house is unsightly. Beyond the visual clutter, fewer Americans are familiar with ductless mini-split systems, which may impact your home’s future sale, or at the very least, you and your realtor might have to help explain the benefits to potential buyers.

While still a relatively small part of the American HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) market, mini-split ductless systems continue to improve and are another great option to consider when selecting HVAC systems for your home.

For several years we have had numerous HVAC folks here to diagnosis and fix the problems with our aging Lennox HVAC system. No one except Home Comfort was able to actually fix it! Wish we had found them first (so much for internet searching...) The previous highly rated companies we called wanted to sell us a new system or charged us for time without actually diagnosing and fixing the existing system issue. Home Comfort's technician Dan had to come out a couple times to get to the root of the problem (recalled thermostat and bad motherboard) but he found and corrected the problems! The system now works perfectly for AC and heat. We will never call anyone else. Highly recommend this company!

They did a great job, very professional! On time, and enlarged my all of my intake duct to match the new unit. This was during the Covid pandemic, so supply and labor shortages caused the installation to be pushed out but they were able to get a unit that fit my needs and installed it when they said they would.

Home Comfort installed a new central AC system at my residence. I am so satisfied and happy with my new central AC and the service I received all the way from Bernie, Comfort Advisor, to the installation team. Everything went smoothly and efficiently on installation day and my new system is working perfectly. I highly recommend Home Comfort!
