Minnesota’s Ductless Mini Split AC System Pros

ductless mini split air conditioner saint paulDuctless AC mini-split systems are a cost-effective solution for zoned cooling, multi-family households, room additions and non-ducted homes. Serving the Twin Cities, the expert air conditioner contractors at McQuillan Bros Plumbing, Heating & Cooling are versed in the repair, service and installation of all types of ductless mini-split units.

Mini-split systems function similar to central AC systems and contain an outdoor compressor and indoor air-handling unit. These two components are linked by a conduit, which allows air to travel from the compressor to the air handler for flexible and efficient cooling. Additional air handlers can be added to a ductless system to provide zoned cooling options with precision temperature control.

Advantages of Minneapolis / Saint Paul Ductless Mini-Splits

Though ductless mini-splits cost more to install than central AC systems, they boast a robust 12- to 15-year lifespan and deliver highly efficient cooling and advanced air filtration. Hennepin, Ramsey and Washington County homeowners report a variety of benefits when they choose a ductless mini-split over a conventional air conditioner. Advantages include:

  • Flexible heating & cooling performance.Say goodbye to “hot spots” and don’t pay to cool empty rooms. A single ductless compressor offers zoned cooling options and can handle several indoor units, enabling residents to meet the comfort demands of individual rooms, entire home additions, garages and more.
  • Ease of installation. Mini-splits are easier and faster to install than ducted systems. Compressors are discreetly placed on the ceiling or high on a wall, and a small, easily patched hole is needed to run the conduit since no ducts are required.
  • Low e-loss. Ductless systems incur minimal energy loss because air does not escape through leaky ducts and poorly installed ventilation systems. The energy-efficient design also means notably lower utility bills.
  • Improved indoor air quality. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the concentrations of some indoor pollutants can be two to five times higher than outside concentrations. Ductless air conditioners come with superior filtration systems that minimize your family’s exposure to pollens, bacteria, dust and other contaminants.
  • Greener home. Many of our Twin City customers are concerned about their home’s carbon footprint. When you upgrade to ductless equipment, you reduce your carbon output and minimize environmental impact.
