Hydro-Flo Plumbing & Heating Installs Ductless A/C Units
Are you considering a ductless mini split HVAC system in Edmonton? Our experienced team can help ensure you have the proper size and model ductless split system for your home. Because mini splits have no ducts, they avoid the energy losses associated with the traditional ductwork of central forced air systems. Those losses can account for more than 30% of energy consumption for space conditioning. We encourage you to learn more about ductless air conditioners and to contact us today for a consultation.
What is a Ductless Air Conditioner?
A ductless mini split system is a type of air conditioner that does not have ducts. The system includes one indoor unit and one outdoor unit. Those units are connected by refrigerant tubing and electrical wiring. The indoor unit is usually wall-mounted. It delivers cool or warm air directly into your living space with no ductwork needed. You may also hear it referred to as a single-zone system. Carrier ductless multi-zone systems use one outdoor unit with up to five indoor units so your whole home can stay comfortable. Ductless HVAC systems are very easy to install because they only require a hole in a wall.
How Do Ductless Heating & Cooling Systems Work?
They work well! But to answer your question, ductless mini split systems provide customizable solutions for your heating and cooling needs. These systems are quiet and efficient. They use the same process that central air conditioning systems do. The only difference is ductless indoor units blow cooled air directly into your living space instead of throughout your entire home through ducts and vents. Both types of systems suck in warm air from your home. They absorb the heat and moisture from the air and release it outside. The main points to understand about a ductless A/C unit are that it cools just one room and does not need air ducts.

The Advantages & Disadvantages of Ductless Split Air Conditioners
Ductless A/C systems provide many advantages, but they’re not always right for everyone. Consider the following factors to determine if this type of system is right for you:
- Energy Efficiency – Modern ductless A/C systems use far less electricity than window units. That means they’ll save you money while cooling your home effectively.
- Flexibility – You can use a mini split system to create zones of comfort in your home that can be controlled independently. This is a great option for families with different temperature preferences.
- Cost – A ductless system can be more expensive than a window air conditioner unit. The added cost is typically recouped by the lower operating cost.
- Installation – Ductless air conditioners can be installed easily with minimal disruption to your day.
- Quieter Operation – Ductless air conditioners often create much less ambient noise than central air conditioning systems or window units
