Is your home one of many without a working duct system built in? Have you recently added on a room to your home that needs air conditioning, or are you using an unconditioned space like a garage or shed as a workshop? If so, a ductless air conditioner may be just right for your home. Ductless air conditioning systems contain all of the same components of a conventional air conditioning system, including an outdoor compressor unit and an indoor air handler. The difference is that indoor air handlers are fixed on the walls and blow air directly into that room. Here are just a few of the benefits of this system.
Ease of Installation
While installing a ductless mini split may not be something you are able to do without the help of a professional, it is still far less of a hassle than other options. Installing a whole new set of ducts or extending ductwork into a room addition would be quite time-consuming, but ductless mini splits are installed in less than a day.
A ductless mini split is highly efficient, due in part to the lack of ducts. Because there is no transfer medium which can form leaks, air is delivered to the room more efficiently. Besides, the efficiency ratings of ductless mini splits are often higher than many conventional split systems. And a typical window or room air conditioner cannot compare; these have a lot of difficulty cooling down a room, fail in a short period of time, and are very inefficient.
If you are using a ductless mini split to cool more than one room or zone, you get the added advantage of zone control. Each air handler has its own thermostat which means you can control one zone separately from the others. This keeps everyone a little bit more comfortable wherever they are in the home.
