Ductless AC systems are a popular choice for homeowners with insufficient space to spare for ducted HVAC units, since they are the ideal way to upgrade an existing system or add a new one without much disruption. They are also known as mini split-system air conditioners, mini splits and splits.
Ductless AC systems work as heat pumps that cool indoor spaces by transferring heat away from them. They feature an outdoor compressor/condenser, indoor air-handling unit, and a conduit or tubing that connects the two units. Power cables, refrigerant tubing, suction tubing, and condensate drain pipes are housed in this conduit.
While there are many benefits associated with ductless AC system, below are some of the main ones to consider:
Like central HVAC units, mini splits are required to meet SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) and HSPF (Heating Season Performance Factor) standards, and often exceed the minimum ratings. Energy Star rated systems cost even less to run, and can reduce your heating and cooling expenses by up to 30%!
Remember, that most manufacturers will only consider the warranty of the system to be valid when it has been installed by a licensed professional.
If you have a larger ductless system set up in your home, you may have up to 4 air handling units running at a time, and each of these has its own thermostat for greater flexibility in application.
If you have a ductless HVAC system with more than one indoor unit, you can select the temperature of your choice for different rooms with ease. This lets you create your own comfort zone anywhere in your home!
Ductless systems cannot heat your home very much, especially if the outdoor temperature is below 30 degrees F. However, they work as an energy-efficient alternative to all-weather ducted HVAC systems for smaller homes and slightly warmer locations.
With regular maintenance, your ductless air conditioning system can keep you comfortable all year round, without blowing your energy bills through the roof.
