What is a Ductless Air Conditioner
To start with, we’d like to help you better understand precisely what a ductless air conditioning system and how such a system functions. As you have probably deduced on your own, a ductless air conditioner is a whole–house cooling system which does not depend upon air ducts in order to distributed cooled air throughout the house. Instead, individual, wall–mounted blowers are used to do so. Multiple blowers are attached to a single outdoor unit, very closely resembling that of a more traditional heat pump or central AC system. However, these blowers are connected to the outdoor unit by means of a simple conduit, which contains the power and refrigerant lines that the system requires for operation.
The blower units are installed throughout the house, and each is responsible for adjusting the temperature in the zone or room in which it is installed. Each blower is controlled by its own individual thermostat. As you’ll read below, this setup allows ductless air conditioning systems to offer a number of benefits that more traditional cooling systems simply cannot rival.
Benefits of Ductless Mini Splits
Ductless mini splits, as ductless air conditioning systems are also known, can benefit you in many ways. First of all, you should know that ductless mini splits can utilize heat pump technology in order to reverse their method of operation. This means that they can heat your home as well as cool it. Our mild winter weather makes heat pumps of any sort an option well worth your consideration.
Another outstanding benefit of using a ductless air conditioning system is the fact that it makes zone controlled cooling so easy to take advantage of. Different members of your household are going to be comfortable at different temperatures. This is why it is advantageous to be able to maintain different temperatures in different areas of your home. By setting the individual thermostats of different blowers to different temperatures, you can do just that.
Plus, the elimination of ductwork means that you won’t suffer any energy loss via leaky ductwork as you cool your home with a ductless cooling system. This can help you to do so more efficiently, while also helping to protect your indoor air quality.
