What are the advantages of installing a ductless mini-split over a central air system?

Central air cools an entire building, which is inefficient if only one room needs to be cooled. Ductless mini-splits cool only the areas that need to be cooled, preventing energy expenditures on rooms that don’t need to be cooled.

A minimum central air unit typically has a minimum of 18,000 BTU. Ductless mini-splits use 9,000 or 12,000 BTUs.

Most 3-story homes are not zoned or require complex zoning systems, meaning that the entire home is cooled to the same temperature, expending excess energy. Ductless mini-splits contain multiple evaporators, meaning that zoning is much easier – as easy as setting a remote control.

Up to 25% of energy loss occurs in ductwork, meaning that long lengths of uninhabited ducts are energy sinks. Ductless mini-splits prevent this energy loss, and are therefore more efficient.
