While air conditioners with cables are expensive to install, the installation procedure of a ductless mini split is fast, easy and cheap. Similarly, homeowners may move them from one room to another because they are highly portable. Unlike conventional air conditioners, cordless mini ducts are also very quiet.

When a building uses ductless mini splits, it employs thermostats for each unit. This means that the users easily achieve the different HVAC needs of different rooms.
