Ductless Systems in Cherry Hill, NJ
Ductwork is often thought of as a necessary part of a house’s comfort system. A boiler may be able to operate without ducts when it comes to heating, but a central air conditioning system must have the use of a ductwork to be able to send cooled air to the rooms. But there’s a way to provide both cooling and heating to home without using ducts, and it doesn’t require awkward and inconvenient window units. Ductless mini splits are a superb way to deliver household comfort without ducts.

Taking a Look at Ductless Mini Splits
"How does ductless heating and cooling work?" you’re probably asking. The answer is that ductless mini splits are types of heat pumps (which means they can switch between heating and cooling mode by changing the direction they move refrigerant) that operate using a series of small blower units indoors rather than a single indoor unit attached to ducts.
The outdoor unit of a ductless mini split connects via refrigerant and power lines directly to a series of air handlers mounted on the walls in rooms. The connections go through small holes in the walls to the units, allowing each of them to remove or release heat and then blow it direction into the rooms. At no point is it necessary to transport the cooled/heated air using ducts.
How Ductless Air Conditioning and Heating Is Useful
There are a number of benefits of using ductless mini split heat pumps in a home. Ducts are a source of loss of energy efficiency because the duct walls allow some transference of heat: either heat escaping during winter or heat entering during summer. Without ducts, a ductless system doesn’t have this problem and can save money. Ductless mini splits also use smaller motors that draw on less power.
A ductless system offers advantages in certain home situations. If you are building a new house, choosing ductless heating and cooling takes away the hassle of space–eating ducts. The same applies for remodeling a home. If you’re adding on a room, using a ductless system removes the difficulties of having to expand ductwork or replace the central AC and heater to accommodate the new space.
