Are you thinking of having a Ductless Mini-Split HVAC system installed in your home?
As HVAC experts in Arizona since 1974, we would love to provide you with some insight regarding ductless AC systems… let’s jump right in…
A ductless mini split HVAC, provides a flexible heating and cooling solution to rooms that don’t have central air. It provides a cost-effective way to replace window fans and portable air conditioners.
These systems are comprised of a few components:
1. A condenser, which is mounted and installed outside.
2. The indoor unit, which is typically mounted on the wall.
3. The Refrigerant lines which connect the indoor unit to the outdoor condenser.
When the installation is complete, the ductless system works similar to central air without requiring the invasive installation of ducts in your walls, ceiling, or attic.
The upfront cost for a ductless HVAC is typically more than a window AC unit, however, the benefits of a ductless system far exceed those of a window ac.
Many ductless HVAC systems have the ability to connect multiple indoor units to one outdoor unit. This allows for greater flexibility when needing to cool multiple rooms.
Because a MiniSplit doesn’t have ducts, it avoids energy loss associated with ductwork forced AC systems.
According to Energy.gov, duct losses can account for more than 30% of energy consumption for space conditioning, especially if the ducts are located in an unconditioned space such as an attic.
Additional benefits of a ductless HVAC include:
Better energy efficiency, they are quieter when operating, you’ll have more control over temperatures, and you’ll be capable of heating and cooling a room.
