“Ok, but why would I want a ductless air conditioner?”
A mini-split ductless air conditioner can has several advantages over a traditional central AC. Namely:
Easier installation if you don’t have ductwork
If you’re adding AC to a room or home that doesn’t already have ducts, mini-split systems can be a great alternative to the expense of installing a bunch of ductwork.
Can both heat and cool
Most ductless mini-split systems are heat pumps. That means they can both heat and cool your home, eliminating the need for a separate heater.
Of course, you can get central air heat pumps, but it’s an upgrade.

Since each area of your home has a separate indoor unit, you can individually control the temperature of each part of your home.
Better energy efficiency
Ductless mini-split systems won’t lose any cooled air due to duct leakage. And duct leakage is a real problem with central air conditioners.
In fact, ENERGY STAR estimates that in a typical home “about 20 to 30 percent of the air that moves through the duct system is lost due to leaks, holes, and poorly connected ducts.”
