If your home is full of small window or room air conditioners that operate noisily and require replacement after a very short time, it’s time for an upgrade. Ductless air conditioners are efficient and they perform better than even many ducted systems. Here’s a primer on how these systems operate and what makes them such a good choice for a ductless home or a single room.

The majority of homes in the U.S. that use air conditioning have a central AC system which delivers air to a home through the ducts. Chances are that this is the setup in your home as well, but if you have a new room add-on, or if you use a garage or a detached shed as a workspace, you have to look for other methods of cooling.
One of the most popular alternatives when this is the case is a window or room air conditioner. These small packaged units are relatively easy to purchase and install, but there are so many disadvantages that make them less than ideal if you seek comfort and efficiency. Here’s why a ductless mini-split, a system comprised of one outdoor compressor unit and one or more indoor air handler, is the way to go when you are looking for the best air conditioning system for your single-room needs.
