Ductless split system air conditioners, also called mini-split systems, provide a good cooling option for homes where extending or installing distribution ductwork is not feasible. It is also the best cooling option for homes that only require a small space air conditioning system.
The mini-split cooling units have two main components, an outdoor compressor/condenser and an indoor air-handling unit. The indoor air-handling unit is wall mounted and connected to the compressor via hidden conduits which house the power cable, refrigerant tubing and suction tubing, linking the outdoor and indoor units.
There are many advantages of using a ductless split system to cool your home and keep the hot summer air outside. Here are a few of them:
- Energy efficient: The energy losses associated with ductwork of central forced air systems are eliminated. Ductless split systems have no ducts for energy and cold air to seep out of. This means that you will save on your utility bill.
- Individual zoning: Instead of paying to cool the entire house, you can choose to cool the areas you want, and not the areas that are unoccupied. Each zone has its own thermostat that allows you further control of when and where to cool.
- Easy installation: The hook-up between the outdoor and indoor units generally requires only a three inch hole through a wall for the conduit.
- Quiet operation: Ductless air conditioners are comprised of an indoor and outdoor unit, which allows for a quiet inside environment. Louder components such as compressors and motors will remain outside.
