Mini-Splits Can Cool Areas Where Ductwork Won’t Reach

Does your she-shed need some ductless AC? We can help you with that!

Summer is fast approaching and the temperature continues to rise.

If you are still using window unit air conditioning to cool your historic Roanoke home, or you’ve been run out of your garden she-shed or garage due to hot weather, it might be time to consider a ductless mini-split.

Ductless mini-split systems are a great alternative to central HVAC system, particularly in homes where it would be difficult to run ductwork. They are also fantastic for heating or cooling separate rooms or areas, like an attic or an outbuilding.


While it is true that ductless mini-split systems often have a higher upfront cost that their central HVAC cousins, they are far more efficient and cheaper to run in the long term. Mini-split systems contain some of the most sophisticated technology in the heating and air industry. For example, they use inverter technology to convert high-voltage electricity into direct current. This allows them to run with very little energy.

Built-in zoning

Mini-splits are also useful for individual living spaces like garages, patios, sunrooms and personal areas. This allows you to have exact control over your own comfort in areas where your central HVAC system does not have ductwork or venting.

This system also allows you personal control over various areas of your home. Perhaps you have a larger older home and you only spend time in a small portion of it. Mini-splits allow you to heat or cool the rooms you spend the most time in.

Less renovation

Finally, mini-splits require less renovation than adding in ductwork throughout a home. Some older homes don’t even have the space to add in ductwork, which means a complete renovation of the walls and subfloors. You will also not need to request building permits from your local planning commission before you can begin work, either.

Avoid this hassle and expense by installing mini-splits and have a cool space in less than two days’ time in most cases.
