How does Ductless Heating & Cooling Work?
Ductless HVAC air conditioning, sometimes called mini-split systems, utilizes two main components. The indoor unit can be mounted on an inside wall or flush in a ceiling. The second unit is located on the outside of the house. A pair of refrigerant lines link the two, along with a control wire and a condensate line. Rather than cutting giant holes, giving up closet space, and dealing with complex renovations, these systems only require a three-inch hole in an exterior wall. The indoor unit is an average of seven inches deep, so finding a good spot isn’t all that difficult.
These modern alternatives to central air allow for great flexibility in design, as well as convenience. With the option of a handy remote, you can easily raise and lower temperature from your favorite chair. And if you’re interested in a ductless heat pump, you can enjoy year round satisfaction from both cooling and heating capabilities. These systems are extremely energy efficient, quiet, environmentally responsible, and durable.
Benefits of Going Ductless
A mini-split system offers numerous benefits. Obviously you aren’t dealing with ductwork, which eliminates a significant amount of energy losses, necessary maintenance, and expense. Split systems are a permanent solution, so there’s no moving units in and out as seasons change, no giving up the view in your favorite window, and none of the security risks you get with an open window. Securely closed windows also keep noise pollution, bugs, and pollen on the outside. These modern units also feature thermostats that maintain a constant room temperature, as opposed to the sudden blasts of hot or cold associated with forced air.
