Your Options For Cooling if You Don’t Have the Space for Ductwork

Hands installing a new HVAC system

A home cooling system is a requirement for your St. Charles home. I mean, we’re not going to tell you what to do, but would you really want to go without comfort control in the dead heat of a Missouri summer? We wouldn’t! But unfortunately for many, there can be complications to finding the right system to meet your needs. Does your home lack capability to get ductwork installed? Fear not, because the experts at Jerry Kelly Heating & Air Conditioning have your solution!

Ready to install ductless cooling in your home? Contact Jerry Kelly today!


Ductless systems (also called a “mini-split”; different term, same meaning) are, what else, entirely ductless. The system operates by way of two units: one staged outside and one installed in your home. The indoor unit is rather small and compact, offering a superior cooling option without any clunky mess choking up your living space.

These provide an excellent option for those that lack appropriate space. But also are a good choice for homeowners looking to augment current systems, or looking to get around a heating system that already utilizes all of your duct space. No matter your needs, these ductless cooling systems will provide all of the quality comfort and efficiency you would expect from central air. And they come with some added perks to boot…

The Benefits of Ductless Cooling

What benefits, you ask? Well:

  • They can save you money. Ah, the driving force in most home decision making. Well, you can rest easy with this one; mini-splits are known for absolutely excellent energy efficiency. This is partially due to the advanced tech they use to operate, but it’s also due to what we call zoning. Zoning allows you to independently control the temperature of each room installed with an indoor unit, meaning you only cool the rooms you want to with no loss of effectiveness.
  • They offer a highly versatile solution to a seemingly large issue. Back in the day, if you didn’t have room for ducts, you were stuck with window units (we know. We shuddered too). While these provided some relief, they were extremely limited, clunky, and hugely expensive to operate. But now? Ductless is king!
  • They can improve the air quality in your home. Ductless cooling makes use of a complex filtration system, where the air drawn in is filtered through a number of independent stages. The result? Cleaner, allergen-free air!
