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.

Ductless Mini-Split Installation in Lindstrom, MN 55045
“On 6/27/22, Mike and Dalton arrived to install a furnace, hot water heater, and mini-split. This was a three day event for them. As time went by, it was evident that these two gentlemen really knew what they were doing and had a mastery of multiple systems.
I pestered Mike with questions regarding the various hardware being installed, and he thoroughly answered each. Tried to stump him, but he wasn’t having any of that. It was also impressive in the way Mike spent time coaching Dalton on various aspects of the installation process. He was very patient and let Dalton do the work.
Dalton was incredibly precise in all his work. If it wasn’t level, square, plumb, or clean, it was re-done. He had the job of climbing a high ladder to install the channel for the split on the side of the house which clearly impressed me that this, was no DIY job. At the end of each day, Dalton made sure the job site was clean.
Nick scheduled time and date to come out to the property to assess the job site. Bingo- he showed up on time (thankfully he did not have a bow tie on which in my book does not bode well going forward, just saying). But he also took the time and effort to drive some distance on 6/27 to make sure all of us were on the same page and to address any concerns I may have had about the project. That was very much appreciated.
Based on all of this and more, it was clear to me that I made the correct decision in hiring Perfection Heating to handle this job. It was completed with professionalism and on time. I would have no hesitation in recommending this company to anyone contemplating installing a system.
