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 Renton, WA 98055
“These guys are the best. They were warm and polite on the phone. I called without an answer (probably on the other line) and Jessie called me back right away. She had a friendly and nice demeanor every time I spoke to her on the phone and in email. I had to reschedule my in home consultation multiple times due to a lot of unplanned and unfortunate circumstances, but we finally got an appointment without something terrible happening the books. Jeremy was my consultant and spent a lot of time with me explaining every detail and option available for my circumstances. He did not pressure me at all and never tried to up sell me. He was honest and straight forward.
Since my project was a small scale heating and cooling pump install, he got me in a few days from my appointment. Janice was very helpful with setting that up. That was a pleasant surprise since everyone wants AC with the ongoing heat wave. Shaun was my lead installer. I think the other man's name was Chris, but I forgot. They were polite, caring, and clean. They wore booties and laid cardboard down to walk on (even though my carpet is icky and is next on my wish list). The electricians were also great.
They moved my heavy couch and moved it back to access some of my electrical and my previous baseboard units. They were also very nice to my large dog and gave her many pets (APBT and American bulldog mix). She approved! Another nice thing with Ranger besides their customer service is their commitment to satisfaction. They have reassured me many times that if I have ANY issues to let them know and have a satisfaction guarantee. They offer 0 percent financing, financing with interest with Wells Fargo, and rewards for referrals. All of other bids and companies had things I did not like, steep price, or sub par customer service. I have no complaints at all with Ranger. No more baking myself. Thank you!
