You can use zone control systems with a forced air cooling system, such as a traditional heat pump or a central air conditioner. However, it is typically an upgrade that homeowners choose to make. It is not part and parcel with the system. When you choose a ductless mini split air conditioner, though, you get zone control as part of the package. The individual blower heads are all controlled independently of another, allowing you to maintain different temperatures in different areas.
Air ducts are a fine means by which to distribute conditioned air throughout a home — provided that they are in great working condition. If not, then your system is going to waste energy as it makes up for air losses through the ductwork. By eliminating the ductwork from the system entirely, you eliminate the risk of any such problems.
Because ductless mini splits are heat pumps, that means that you can both heat and cool your home with the same system. You also heat your home with outstanding efficiency! By making use of ambient heat in the air outside, you eliminate the need for generating new heat when warming your home.
