The Advantages of Ductless Mini Split Air Conditioning

The hot weather is almost here. For some, the heat is just what they’ve been waiting for, but for others, it can be downright uncomfortable. Air conditioning is great for cooling off and keeping your body temperature regulated during the summer months, but if your property doesn’t have a duct-based heating/cooling system, your air conditioning choices have been limited – until now. Consider a ductless air conditioning installation in Bucks and/or Montgomery County.

The Ductless Air Conditioner

Your first thought may be that a ductless air conditioner equals a window air conditioner. You wouldn’t be wrong, but we’re talking about something much better: a ductless mini split.

A ductless air conditioner, also known as a ductless mini-split air conditioner, is a unit that allows for controlled air conditioning in your property without having to install a fully-ducted air conditioning system.

There are two components to a ductless air conditioner: the indoor unit, which blows and controls the cool air, and the outdoor unit, which contains the compressor/condenser. The outdoor unit can power up to 4 indoor blowers.

Indoor units can be placed on a wall or ceiling inside a room, and a conduit between the indoor and outdoor units holds the refrigerant tubing, suction tubing and condensate drain, and links the two units together.

Why Choose a Ductless Air Conditioner?

Ductless air conditioners are a great choice for properties that have non-ductless heat, such as older homes or multi-unit properties, where installing ducts is costly. They are also excellent for spaces that require retro-fitting.

Installation of a ductless air conditioner is much simpler as compared with a ducted system. First, the conduit length that runs between the components can be quite long – up to 50 feet apart – allowing for the indoor unit(s) to be installed in front rooms while the outdoor compressor resides in the back of the property. There is no messy ductwork to contend with, just the simple install and connection of the two components.

Second, the placement of the indoor unit(s) is/are also very flexible. The indoor component can be installed flush against a wall or ceiling, or suspended from a ceiling, including drop ceilings. There are also floor-standing models if needed.

Third, a single outdoor compressor can handle up to 4 indoor air blowers, and each blower can be programmed to maintain a consistent air temperature, boosting efficiency and saving you money.

Lastly, ductless air conditioners are safer than window units, as they do not provide a potential entrance to your property.
