What Is a Ductless Air Conditioner?
Ductless Air Conditioners
Ductless AC unit installation is rising in homes across America and for a good reason. No matter the time of year, ductless mini-splits are a suitable option for an array of homes as they deliver heating and cooling based on your needs. Below, we discuss the comparisons between ductless and ducted AC units and how a ductless mini-split may be the right choice for you and your home.
Ductless vs. Ducted AC Systems
While ductless mini-splits and ducted AC systems provide much-needed cooling, there are some notable differences between the two. As the name suggests, ductless units don’t require ductwork to operate, unlike conventional ducted AC systems. This makes mini-splits an ideal option for homes without existing ductwork. Additionally, ductless mini-splits can provide heating and cooling, making them a seamless choice for year-round use.
How Ductless Mini-Splits Work
Ductless mini-splits consist of one or more air handlers connected to an outdoor compressor by a refrigerant line. The air handlers are directly mounted to the walls in rooms you wish to heat or cool; generally, this system comes with a remote that makes it easy to control each unit’s temperature setting, allowing you to heat or cool each room independently based on different requirements or preferences.
Benefits of Ductless Mini-Splits vs. Ducted AC Systems
When looking at the perks of a ductless mini-split compared to their ducted counterparts, you can expect the following benefits:
- Better zoning capabilities
- Small in size
- Highly efficient
- Provide both heating and cooling
- Don’t require ductwork
- Better indoor air quality
Why Ductless Mini-Splits Are Right for Your Home
As discussed above, ductless mini-splits offer a slew of benefits virtually anyone can enjoy. When deciding on a suitable AC unit for your home, it’s essential to look at some key aspects. Considering ductless mini-splits don’t require ductwork to run, they are an excellent option for homes without existing ductwork, homes with new construction add-ons, and homes with rooms that aren’t frequently used.
They are also valuable for smaller homes and apartments as their small silhouettes are great for saving space; additionally, due to the lack of ductwork, these systems can preserve up to 25% of the energy that’s often wasted with traditional central air conditioning units — this will also inevitably result in lowered monthly costs!
