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 Repair in Broussard, LA 70518
“Joshua and Shawn arrived promptly at the time scheduled. They immediately surveyed the area in order to appropriately remove my old unit and discussed with me what they could do to install the new ductless unit. They removed the old unit after a considerable amount of difficulty getting it out and not making any damage. They took their time and didn't appear to be hurried to get the job done. They were actually meticulous in doing their work. The guys worked as a team. When I didn't like the size of the base for the outdoor unit, Joshua got on the phone and was able to get a smaller size base that fits appropriately to the size of the outside unit. They were both friendly to me and my wife and in spite of the heat outside they continued to do their work. I was overall impressed by the way that everything was totally CLEANED up from the yard and in the sunroom. Shawn even asked to borrow my wife's vacuum and vacuumed the flooring indoor. Joshua spent time answering all questions about how to use the unit and spent at least 30 minutes answering and showing my wife how to operate the unit. These guys live up to the ongoing relationship that I have had with Dave Broussard A/C for the past 10 years.”
