Many Tallahassee area homeowners may have seen ductless air conditioners in businesses such as restaurants and banks but not realized what they were looking at. Ductless mini-splits (another name they are commonly called) are extremely popular overseas where older buildings make traditional ducted systems difficult-to-impossible to install.
Let’s take a closer look at the 5 advantages of the Mitsubishi ductless air conditioners:
1. They Offer a Wide Variety of Cooling Options
Traditional air conditioning systems require extensive ductwork to deliver air into a home or commercial environment. Ductless systems, on the other hand, are duct-free and require no ductwork whatsoever in most applications.
The indoor and outdoor sections are compact, lightweight and require very little space to install. They can be used in an almost endless variety of applications and are much faster and easier to install than ducted systems.
Plus, you can choose from a wide variety of indoor units such as wall mounted, ceiling mounted, ceiling recessed and horizontal ducted systems that are installed in the attic or crawlspace and remain entirely hidden from view.
They are perfect for rooms additions and supplemental cooling where an existing system is simply not filling the need in certain rooms. They are commonly used in bonus rooms, porch enclosures, garages that need cooling, and many other applications.
2. They Provide Energy-Efficient Comfort for Pennies per Hour
Mitsubishi ductless A/C systems are among the most energy efficient air conditioning and heating systems you can buy, a huge benefit when utility costs just keep increasing.
Because ductless systems are not dependent on restrictive ductwork, they are able to operate while consuming a lot less electricity. Air is delivered directly into the space where it is needed and nowhere else.
Each room or space has its own thermostat, creating individual cooling and heating zones that are independently controlled. This means you only have to cool or heat the rooms you occupy and only as needed.
The Mitsubishi ductless systems are so efficient that hourly cooling costs here in Tallahassee can be as little as 4-6 cents per hour, depending on your local utility rate. This means if your system operates for 1000 hours during the cooling system, you total combined cost would be just $40-$60 for the ENTIRE season.
3. They Provide Clean, Fresh Air
According to the EPA, the air inside of our homes is about 5X more polluted than the exterior air. Many of the Mitsubishi ductless systems offer highly-efficient filtration systems that remove even microscopic particles than can be harmful to the air conditioning system and our health.
These particles include mold, mildew, bacteria, pollen and a wide host of other airborne allergens that can be detrimental to our health.

4. Ductless Air Conditioners are Fast and Easy to Install
Up until the introduction of ductless systems, traditional ducted systems offered the only logical air conditioning and heating option but were time-consuming and disruptive to install. Ductless systems, on the other hand, can be installed in just a few hours in many cases.
Small piping and easy to install electrical connections mean less fuss and a single, 3- inch wall penetration for each system. There’s no need for messy cleanups, costly remodeling or extensive patch-up work.
They space they require is minimal and you will quickly forget they are even there; except for the newfound comfort you’ll enjoy right from day one of course.
5. Ductless Cooling Lowers Your Carbon Footprint
Because Mitsubishi ductless mini-splits are so energy efficient, they consume a lot fewer of our valuable energy resources. Mitsubishi carefully complies with federal ENERGY STAR guidelines so your carbon footprint is substantially reduced with each system you install.
They also use the latest earth-friendly refrigerant, known as R-410a, which also contributes to the preservation of our atmosphere. Because of their extremely low energy consumption and use of environmentally friendly refrigerants, their impact on the environment is greatly reduced
The Mitsubishi Ductless cooling and heating systems are highly adaptable to almost any need, are amazingly energy efficient, offer cost-effective pricing, are environmentally friendly, and fast and easy to install.
They offer homeowners the ability to cool and heat specific zones of their home to the exact temperature they desire, without wasting energy, while providing consistent and exceptional year-round comfort.
