Ductless systems have been in use in Europe and Asia since the 1970s to heat and cool homes. Today, it’s rare to find a home on either of these continents using any other system. Here in America, though, it’s a very different story. Currently, ductless units currently make up only about 5% of the market in the US. However, industry experts expect that number to rise as consumers discover the assets and options. Notably, a ductless heating and cooling system has many benefits like high efficiency, flexibility, and improved indoor air quality.

What’s So Great About a Ductless System?
Probably the most important advantage of ductless units is the flexibility for zoning or heating and cooling individual rooms. No longer do you have to heat rooms that aren’t in use, wasting energy. Depending on the manufacturer and system, you can have up to 8 separate zones installed. With greater control of the indoor comfort of your rooms, you can save money.
Moreover, ductless units are easy to install. Ductless systems consist of an outdoor unit and indoor air handlers. You’ll need a small hole of about 3 inches in your wall. This hole will accommodate the electrical wiring and copper tubing that connects to the outdoor unit. Complete installation should take only a day or two.
Finally, ductless units are great at improving indoor air quality. Ductless systems take in air, filter it, and blow it out at the same location. Without ducts, there’s no place for contaminants such as dust, mold, and bacteria to collect. Furthermore, indoor ductless units have an advanced multi-stage filtration system eliminating many common household pollutants.
Cost of a Ductless System
There are many considerations when trying to determine pricing for a ductless system.
- Type of unit
- Efficiency level
- Integrated technology
- Complexity of installation
Certainly, each brand has its own price structure. Also, the number of air handlers or indoor units affects the cost. Additionally, you need to consider the BTUs of the indoor units. BTUs are a measurement of the heat output of that particular unit. It’s important to choose the right size indoor unit as too small will result in less than satisfactory indoor comfort. And too large a unit will result in wasted energy.
Additionally, SEER (seasonal energy efficiency ratio) greatly affects cost. A higher SEER rating means greater efficiency, but also a higher price. Of course, added features such as programmed timer, adjustable airflow, and washable air filter increase cost. Finally, installation costs will vary depending on the configuration of your home. The outdoor unit performs best in a shady location. While the indoor units are easiest to install when located on an exterior wall.
