Pros & Cons of Ductless AC

You may have heard about ductless mini-split AC systems but do not know where to start with your research. If you are curious about how these stand alone AC systems fit your wants and needs, we’ve got you covered at Norman Air.

We are going to walk you through the essential pros and cons when considering installing a ductless mini-split ac system.

What Is A Ductless Mini Split AC System?

A ductless mini-split AC system consists of an outdoor unit and one or more indoor units. These separate units are connected by refrigerant tubing and electrical wiring. The ductless mini-split system provides concentrated cooling or heating, so they will regulate the temperature in an individual room or space.

Pros Of Using A Mini Split AC System

Easy Installation

Ductless AC installation is less complex as installing a traditional unit. Professional installation saves time and when installed correctly, will last for years to come.

Heating And Cooling

Another benefit of the mini-split ac is its ability to heat as well as cool. Throughout the seasonal temperature changes, you will have a versatile ductless ac that can provide you with the comfort you need regardless of the time of year.

More Efficient

If you live with roommates or family members, then this benefit is for you. Everyone has different preferences on what temperature suits our comfort needs and people may be sensitive to even the slightest change. With the mini-split AC, you can control the temperature in each room with a unit installed.

Cons Of Using A Mini Split AC System


Have you ever seen an AC unit and thought it would look great in your room? Maybe not! Mini-split AC’s are not always the most appealing to the eyes and can awkwardly stand out within your room’s decor depending on the placement.

Not As Effective With Heat

It will consistently keep you warm and comfortable when you would not dare go outside in the cold. However, the mini-split AC is not as effective when it comes to cooling down a large space in the summertime.


We all know when weighing one’s options that cost can be the biggest deal breaker. Because of ductless AC’s consistent use of electricity, they can be more expensive in the long-run.
