How Does Ductless Air Conditioning Work?
A ductless air conditioner shares a few things in common with traditional split central systems. An outdoor unit is used, and refrigerant facilitates the heat transfer process. Heat is removed from the air in your home, and that heat is vented outdoors. However, rather than redistributing cooled air throughout the house via a complex system of air ducts, ductless mini splits utilize individual, wall-mounted blowers to fill your home with cooled air. Typically, an outdoor unit can accommodate up to four of these blowers, which are installed in different areas of the home. Each is controlled independently of the others with its own thermostat, and a simple conduit connects the indoor and outdoor components.
Why Choose a Ductless AC?
There are many reasons as to why you may choose to use a ductless air conditioner in your home. First of all, the installation is a lot less of a hassle, as you won’t have to have air ducts installed. This elimination of ductwork also eliminates the risk of air leaks in those ducts, helping you to cool your home more efficiently and effectively. Plus, ductless mini splits use heat pump technology, meaning that you can both heat and cool your home with one convenient system. Additionally, zone controlled heating and cooling is as simple as setting different temperatures at the different thermostats.
