Conventional Central Air Conditioning Units:

A conventional air conditioner system works by drawing hot, humid air into return ductwork, cooling and dehumidifying it and returning it into the room. The newly cooled and dehumidified air is much more comfortable.

These units can be split - meaning there is a condenser/compressor unit outside and an evaporator unit inside - usually mounted on the furnace or an air handler. They can also come packaged - where the compressor and evaporator are in a single unit is outside. Essentially, everything you want is in one easy package.

Ductless Mini-Splits Units:

These units are commonly referred to as a mini-split system, and operate using an outdoor compressor, and contain an evaporator and blower fan. They are easier and quicker to install than a central system, and because they cool only certain areas operating costs will be lower. Additionally, you don’t have to have your home fitted with ductwork.


Going “ductless” can mean changing indoor climates without expensive renovation work or compromising the structure. Perfect for both small and medium sized space, Ductless Mini-Split Systems are smart, adaptable and energy efficient.
