What Are Ductless Air Conditioners?
A ductless air conditioning system is typically referred to as a mini split system provides zoned cooling without any ductwork. Like refrigerated air conditioners, mini split systems have an outdoor compressor/condenser unit. But also include an indoor air handling unit mounted to the wall.
The main advantage of ductless air conditioners is their small size and flexibility for cooling individual rooms or areas in a home. Many models can have as many as 4 indoor air handlers (for 4 zones or rooms) connected to the outdoor unit. The number of units needed depends on how much cooling is required for the home or each zone. Each zone has its own thermostat, so you only need to cool the space when it’s occupied, saving money and energy.
Ductless air conditioning is an excellent choice for homeowners who desire a less invasive approach to HVAC remodeling. Because they have no ductwork, they are ideal for older homes where owners want to maintain the integrity of existing structures.
The indoor units of these ductless systems are stylish and discreet, and many of them do more than just cool your room. They can reduce allergens and kill harmful bacteria in the air.
Also, if you are adding a room onto your house, a ductless air conditioning system is an excellent way to provide comfort without disrupting or expanding your current HVAC system.
The main difference between ductless air conditioning and all other AC systems is temperature control. For every unit you have in a room, you have absolute control over the temperature. While you may like the kitchen to be cool while you cook, your bedroom can stay a comfortable 73 degrees.
These systems are among the most energy efficient on the market, which means that you can save money on electricity during those hot summer months.
