You may have heard about ductless heating and cooling systems, but do you know about their advantages?
A Flexible Solution
Ductless systems are more flexible than traditional systems, because ductless systems don’t use ductwork. All that’s needed is a small outdoor unit and one or more indoor units, along with access to electricity and a place to mount the units. Ductless systems can be installed in either new or existing construction.
Traditional heating and cooling units can run inefficiently for a number of reasons, costing you money in lost energy. The actual units are larger than a ductless system, also costing you more money overall, because they naturally consume more power. Also, conditioned air can be lost through gaps in the ductwork before it ever reaches its intended destination, illustrating yet another example of lost energy for which you also pay.
Ductless systems are smaller than traditional HVAC systems, which means they use less power. In addition, the temperature-controlled air of a ductless system is delivered directly into a room instead of throughout an entire building. This means that you don’t heat or cool rooms that aren’t occupied. Translation: less needed power, less money spent.
Improved Indoor Air Quality
Did you know the quality of indoor air is typically lower than that of outdoor air? Ductwork collects dust, allergens, bacteria, as well as many other contaminants. Traditional forced air systems blow air directly through these contaminants and consequently throughout your house.
Ductless systems offer multi-stage filtration that greatly reduces this type of air contamination and creates a healthier indoor environment.
Easy to Install
Ducted systems can take several weeks to install. They interrupt daily life in the home and can take up valuable real estate due to their size.
Conversely, ductless systems can be installed in as little as a day, depending on the number of units required. The pipes required for the systems only dictate a three-inch hole that makes them easier to integrate into a building.

For feedback, I could not be more pleased with the whole process – everyone was completely professional and polite. They arrived on time, continuously worked throughout the day, explaining what they were doing and answering my numerous questions. Whenever maintenance is due, if possible, I’d like Noah to do the maintenance.
Now the technology challenged me tries to learn how everything operates. Noah was very patient, explaining how the system operates, but for those challenged by technology, it’s a work in progress. Seems the easiest thing to do is either increase or decrease the temperature, as needed. Various modes, blades, angles, symbols? I’m sure Noah is shaking his head; I told him I was putting him on speed dial. 😊
Thanks for making this a nice, cool place to be!
“Hello Craig, Your staff gave me your email address so that I could tell you how happy we are with the work that Vinnie, Anthony – and some others whose names I didn’t catch — completed last week, when they installed our ductless AC during some really sweltering, bug-filled days, working their buns off to get everything done according to plan.
Last week’s weather was so hot and humid, it was the reason we needed the mini splits, but the ceiling location of the one in the master bedroom was kind of a miracle – and wow – those guys were just amazing in how they worked out a Rubic’s Cube of an installation – through the attic to the ceiling then through my walk-in closet (where they carefully removed all the boxes, clothes, etc that had drifted in there over the past seven years!) and only then to the outside – just amazing!
I’m writing to you because I wanted to express my happiness with the finished AC and because I’m not a big fan of writing anything on google or yelp.
But you need to know those guys – even the guys from Town Electric who were sweating right alongside your team – were polite, cleaned up every little bit, wore those things over their shoes when inside the house – spectacular.
Thanks for making this a nice, cool place to be! Happy customer in Tiverton~”
