It’s a basic understanding we’ve had about air conditioning—and heating—for years: central air requires a network of ducts. Whether made from sheet metal, flexible plastic, or ductboard, these channels are necessary to bring the conditioned air from the air conditioning or heat pump to the rooms of a house.
But ductless systems have existed for a few decades, and now they are an easily available option for homeowners. If you are moving into a new house, adding on a room to your current home, or simply looking for something innovative to replace your aging AC, you should consider a ductless mini split heat pump for your new air conditioning installation in Savannah, GA.

What ductless air conditioning can do for you
The first advantage you should know about leaving ducts behind is that ductless mini split systems are heat pumps. So you are not only investing in air conditioning, you are also investing in heating. Heat pumps work ideally for Savannah’s climate in the winter, and for summer they are as powerful as any standalone air conditioner of the same size.
The lack of ducts means you no longer need to worry about the repair and air quality issues of standard ventilation systems. Ductless systems use individual blower units mounted in rooms, each connected to the outdoor cabinet, and send air straight into the home without ducts. This makes for cleaner air (no dust or dirt from a ventilation system) and reduces the leak sealing and cleaning often required for ductwork.
The individual air handlers in different rooms give you zone control over your cooling and heating, so you no longer need to condition the whole house, only the area you are using. This will result in savings on your energy bill, as well as more comfortable distribution of heating and cooling.
If you plan to have a ductless mini split heat pump installed as part of new construction, the absence of ducts gives you more space and freedom of design. They make excellent comfort systems for add-on rooms, saving you the trouble of connecting the room to your existing ducts or facing poor redistribution of air because your older system now has to heat and cool a larger space.
Find out if ductless is your best choice
The advantages of a ductless mini split heat pump will not match with every home, so make sure that you consult with advanced installers about the choice before you make it. Whatever decision you make, leave the installation to professionals so you receive the full benefits of your new system.
