You may have heard about ductless heating and cooling systems, but do you know about their advantages?
A Flexible Solution
The most common HVAC systems are central air conditioners and heat pumps that use ducts to deliver conditioned air throughout a building.
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.

“The installation team was courteous and conscientious. Alex, Anthony, and Ray worked well together getting in and out of my house in a timely manner with as little disruption as possible.
I'm still evaluating the system and except for the odd looking apparati sticking out of my home to drain the condensed moisture, it's attractive. I appreciate being able to cool only the rooms I'm occupying instead of the entire house.”

“I just had mini-splits installed in all of the rooms of my house. From Mike, who came out and talked to me about what I needed to Alex and Anthony who did the installation everything was handled very professionally and with my needs and concerns in mind. Alex and Anthony were very pleasant and easy to work with, they left the work site very clean. I would most definitely recommend Williams Mechanical to friends and family.”

“We have been enjoying the new mini-splits that Alex, Anthony and Bret installed last week throughout our home. These guys were great to work with–they were courteous with us and kept us apprised of their work, listened to our input and did the work on time as promised. The system meets the expectations that owner Annette and Mike, the salesman, set about the Mitsubishi system. It has definitely cooled down two problem rooms and is very quiet, yet powerful. Williams Mechanical was great on the installation.”
