How Does a Ductless Air Conditioner Work?
The ductless-mini splits air conditioner has an outdoor and indoor unit that works alongside an outdoor compressor. The outdoor unit is connected to single or multiple indoor units.
Ductless Air Conditioners Are Easier to Install
The process of installing a traditional HVAC system is more complicated than installing a ductless air conditioner. A ductless installation takes less than a day because there is no ductwork involved.
They’re Energy-Efficient and Cost-Effective
The ability to create zones in your home using a ductless air conditioner ensures that the system only works in occupied spaces in the house. Ductless units do not have ductwork, which prevents energy loss through the leaks that might develop in the ductwork. Ductless units use variable speed compressors that ensure the home’s temperature remains constant, which increases energy efficiency.
They Reduce Comfort Conflicts
The traditional HVAC system does not meet the heating and cooling preferences of every member of your family. However, a ductless unit allows family members to choose the temperature they want in their rooms.
Drawbacks of Ductless Air Conditioners
Despite the many advantages of a ductless unit, there are a few cons. For example, the initial process of installing a ductless air conditioner costs more than the traditional HVAC system. Moreover, some people are uncomfortable with the mini-split system that hangs on the wall because of its bulky look.
