Can Ductless ACs Cool A Whole House?

Going Ductless Throughout Your Home

Staying comfortable at home requires an efficient air conditioning system. If you’re looking for an air conditioner for whole-house comfort, ductless AC might be for you. Many people use ductless mini split units when they only need to cool a single room, but can they cool an entire home?

We’re passionate about whole-home comfort in Barrow County, GA at Absolute Comfort Air. The perfect AC system is hard to find, but with a little research, you’ll be on your way to a cooler home. If you want to learn more about ductless AC, you’ve come to the right place.

What Is Ductless Air Conditioning?

For decades, many homes have used traditional air conditioning that uses ductwork to transport cool air from room to room. However, ductless AC provides an alternative that has quite a few benefits. Instead of requiring large ducts in the walls, ductless mini-split units connect to a larger outdoor unit through small cables that only require creating three-inch holes in the walls.

The interior of a ductless mini split is very similar to the inside of a traditional AC unit. Warm air from inside the home is absorbed by the unit and transferred outside, where it is replaced with cool air. Since mini-split units don’t require ductwork — which can develop gaps and holes — they can be very energy efficient.

Whole House Ductless Air Conditioner

Unlike traditional air conditioning, you must place a ductless AC unit in each room or zone of your home. Since mini-split units are smaller than traditional indoor units, they can only cool down smaller portions of your home at a time. To determine how many mini-split units you will need, you’ll need to do some math.

The power of a ductless mini split is expressed in British Thermal Units (BTU). To figure out how many BTUs you’ll need for your whole home, multiply the square footage by 30. For example, if you live in a 2,500-square-foot home, and the ductless units you want to purchase are 12,000 BTUs each, you’ll need approximately 6 to 7 mini split units to cool your home.

Since the layout, budget and needs of every home are different, this example is a rough estimate. For instance, you may not want or need an air handler in every zone of your home. Climate control system installation is a complicated process, which is why our team is here to help. With proper calculations and sizing, your home will stay cool and comfortable.

Can A Mini Split Heat A Whole House?

Ductless mini splits can provide air conditioning for a home, but what about heat? Most mini-split systems are designed as heat pump systems, meaning they can provide both heat and cool. With a ductless AC installation, you can enjoy year-round comfort with both heating and cooling capabilities.
