What if you want central air conditioning for your Richmond-area home, but the house has no duct system? Or what if your new home addition or guest house lacks a duct system? Adding ducts throughout your home is generally not practical, but there is a solution to this dilemma. Ductless mini-split AC systems were designed specifically for ductless homes.

What Is a Ductless Mini-Split AC System?
The ductless mini-split is the HVAC industry’s solution for homes without an existing duct system. Ductless air conditioners don’t need to circulate air between rooms, therefore they don’t need a duct system. Instead, they consist of a small AC unit in each room of the house to bring cool, conditioned air into the room. The in-room units are connected to an outdoor compressor, which can run multiple units.
Benefits of Ductless AC Systems for Homeowners in Richmond VA
No ducts, no problem! The ductless air conditioning system, properly installed, is just as capable as typical ducted central AC. Ductless AC has many advantages and is, in some ways, better than traditional (ducted) central air conditioning—and it’s definitely better than using window units.
Ductless AC advantages include:
Indoor units typically go unnoticed: The units are small, low-profile, and inconspicuous, blending right in with your decor. They’re often installed high on a wall or on the ceiling, making them even less noticeable.
Won’t spoil your view or require big holes in the wall: Window ACs either block your window space and view or make a big hole in a wall for installation. Ductless systems need only a small wall penetration, through which the small-diameter connecting conduit (basically a tube) runs to the outdoor unit.
Automatically zoned for comfort: A zoned AC system allows you to cool only the room(s) you are using, allowing each room to be the temperature the occupant prefers for customized home comfort. With a ductless system, you have a cooling unit in each room, so you are zoned by definition.
Energy-efficient by design: Ductless systems are designed to be energy-efficient, since they don’t have the often-wasteful, leaky ducts throughout the home. The fact that ductless systems are zoned saves you even more energy and money on monthly bills. (Many traditional ducted central AC systems are not zoned, keeping the whole home cooled, empty rooms included. Zoning can be added to ducted ACs, however.)
Low noise: One outdoor compressor runs several indoor units, making ductless AC is much quieter than room air conditioners — and also quieter than some regular ducted AC systems.
