Let’s save money, reduce our carbon footprint while enjoying improved comfort and convenience.
Let’s go ductless.
A ductless mini split pairs an indoor air handler with an outdoor heat pump or air conditioner. The air handler transfers the warm and cold air from one of the two outdoor units and circulates it directly into your Ames home.
At C and K, our team of licensed professionals constantly looks for ways to save you money while improving your comfort. We specialize in installing, repairing, and maintaining heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment for homes and businesses of all sizes. We’re a trusted name throughout Iowa—call us today for a free consultation about your next home improvement.
Here are five reasons to go ductless:
1. Ductless Systems Are Easy to Install
You can install a mini split practically anywhere in your home. These systems are great for homes looking to retrofit a non-ducted system. They’re also a perfect solution to supplement your central air conditioning system.
Want to add some comfort to your attic, basement, or garage without having to extend your ductwork? Go ductless.
2. Ductless Systems Are Incredibly Efficient
Most ductless systems have fans that can change their speed based on the temperature inside your home. Variable-speed air handlers start working at full speed, then switch to a slower speed when they reach the desired temperature. They continue running at a slower speed to maintain the temperature, saving energy.
3. Ductless Systems Are Quiet
These systems are whisper quiet—you will not hear them running. The air no longer travels through creaky old ductwork, creating a rattling sound. Plus, the outdoor unit is much quieter than a conventional air conditioning (AC) unit. You can locate it next to your bedroom window and sleep soundly all night.
4. Ductless Systems Operate in All Climates
You can install a cold-climate ductless heat pump that gets the job done in temperatures as low as 5 degrees Fahrenheit. No matter what part of the country you live in, a ductless system is perfect for your home.
5. Ductless Systems Allow You to Zone
Add more than one air handler to your home to create a zone control system. Each indoor unit has a thermostat, allowing you to create multiple temperature zones under the same roof. Why pay for air conditioning in an empty room?

Ductless Mini Split Maintenance
Preventative maintenance plays a critical role in the upkeep of all your HVAC equipment. That especially holds true with ductless mini splits. These systems are incredibly reliable—but like any piece of machinery with moving parts, they require tune-ups and inspections.
You will need to wash the system filters at least once a month—more often if you have pets or anyone who smokes in your home. These reusable filters can clog up quickly, so be sure to clean them regularly.
