A ductless mini-split AC system is made up of a wall-mounted assembly located indoors, and a compressor outdoors. They are ideal for cooling smaller apartments and room additions.
They can distribute conditioned air throughout the house and are less expensive than a central AC system.

Pros & Cons of Ductless Mini Split AC Systems
As with anything else, ductless mini-split AC systems have their good and bad. One notable advantage is that they can provide ideal temperatures because each room or “zone” in the house has its own customizable thermostat. They are also a good alternative to window AC units because they are quieter and do not require a big hole in the wall.
Below are some of the more common notable pros and cons of ductless mini-split AC units:
|Provide both cooling & heating||Higher upfront cost|
|No ductwork needed, no air loss||Requires maintenance|
|Smaller than central ACs||Aesthetics|
It is important to hire a reliable AC contractor who will correctly size and place each indoor unit in the best locations. Call Kuhn Air Conditioning if you have any questions about a ductless mini-split for your home.
Installing a dehumidifier will reduce humidity levels in the home ensuring a more comfortable environment.
Ideal Uses for a Ductless Mini Split System
Traditional AC systems may experience energy loss through the ductwork, but because mini-splits are ductless, they do not have this problem. Mini-splits are also a good choice for home additions or when adding more air ducts is not an option.
With mini-split systems, you can choose which rooms or “zones” to heat or cool since each room has its own thermostat. Also, adding a heat pump to your ductless mini-split offers heat in the winter without having a separate heating unit in the home.
