Can a house with no duct work have central air conditioning?

Installation of ductless mini split system

When it comes to cooling your home efficiently, central air conditioning is often the go-to solution. In order for central air systems to disperse cooled air throughout the home, you need to have a proper system of ducts in place. But what if there are no ducts in your house? Can you still enjoy the comfort and convenience of central air conditioning? Let’s explore this question and consider our options.

The role of ducts in a central air conditioning system

Ducts serve as conduits to carry cooled air from the central unit to various rooms in the house. The duct system also filters out contaminants like dust, dirt and pollen from the exterior air, providing you with a safe and healthy atmosphere. Ducts enable the smooth flow of outside air into your air conditioning system and inside air back outside. 

Installing central air conditioning in a home without ducts 

If you’re looking at a traditional central air conditioning installation but don’t have ducts, you will need to incur an extra expense for the duct system to be put in place. The cost you incur on the ductwork and the cooling system  will depend on the following factors:

*The area and design of your home

*The ductor material you choose

*The AC system

*The installation service provider 

The solution: Ductless central air conditioning system

Fortunately, advancements in technology have paved the way for ductless central air conditioning systems. Also known as mini-split systems, these setups offer a viable alternative for homes without ductwork. Instead of relying on ducts, ductless systems utilize individual air handlers installed in different rooms or zones, connected to an outdoor unit.
