Ductless Systems in Colorado Springs, CO
The standard idea people have of a central air conditioning system is one that works by sending cooled air through ductwork. They have a similar idea for central heating with a furnace. But thanks to ductless mini split heat pumps, a home can enjoy comfort all around the year without sacrificing an inch of space to ducts. And that brings many benefits along with it.

How Ductless Air Conditioning and Heating Works
A conventional heat pump is like a split air conditioner except it can reverse the direction of refrigerant so that it can either remove heat from a home or bring heat into a home. A single indoor unit contains a refrigerant coil and blower fan that sends the conditioned air into the duct network.
What a ductless heating and cooling system changes about this configuration is that there are multiple indoor units. Each is a small air handler (the "mini" part of "mini split") mounted on the wall of a room that connects through a hole drilled in the wall to the outdoor unit. The air handlers cool or heat the air and then blow it directly into the living spaces—no ducts required.
Benefits of Ductless Heating and Cooling
One of the big advantages of going with a ductless mini split is the flexibility it offers for new home construction and home remodeling. If there’s no need for ducts, it frees up space. Ductless mini splits are also ideal for an add–on room or for conditioning a hard to heat or cool spot, like a garage. For older homes that lack space for ducts, ductless systems are the perfect solution.
There are a number of other benefits of going ductless to consider:
- High Energy Efficiency: Ducts allow for heat loss and heat gain as air travels through them. Without ducts, a system performs at higher energy efficiency.
- Zone Control: So you don’t want to have to cool an empty bedroom when everyone is in the living room? With a ductless mini split, you don’t have to. Each air handler can be controlled separately.
- Indoor Air Quality: Ducts gather many pollutants and contaminants which the air handler then blows out into the living space. Without ducts, a house enjoys cleaner air.
