Ductless air conditioning systems are a great option for homes that cannot use traditional ductwork to cool their house. These systems are also known as mini-split ACs because they use a pair of units that are installed on opposite sides of a building. One unit is placed on the wall near the outdoor compressor, and the other is placed on the wall near the indoor evaporator. The outdoor compressor is connected to a long refrigerant line that delivers cool air to the evaporator inside your home. This system is very energy-efficient, and it can be installed in a matter of hours. It can also be moved to a new location with just a few minutes of effort.
What Are the Benefits of Ductless Mini Splits?
Ductless mini-splits offer a range of benefits that can enhance your comfort and efficiency.
Here's a closer look at why these systems are gaining popularity:
- Personalized Comfort: Ductless systems allow you to set different temperatures in individual rooms, ensuring personalized comfort for everyone.
- Energy Efficiency: With no ducts, there's no energy loss through leaks. Ductless units are highly efficient and often come with energy-saving features.
