What Are Ductless Air Conditioners?
A ductless air conditioning system is typically referred to as a mini-split air conditioning system. It uses refrigerated air to cool off rooms without having air ducts installed in your home.
Ductless air conditioners are very popular across the world and are well known for the extremely efficient design and low profile installation for homes and businesses.
A ductless AC unit can heat and cool a home with minimal equipment. The condenser is smaller than your typical home air conditioning system and can be installed in as little of a space such as a window sill or an 18″ by 36″ floor area.
Ductless air conditioning is also often easier to install than other types of air conditioning systems.
For example, the hook-up between the outdoor and indoor units generally requires only a three-inch hole through a wall of the conduit.
Also, most manufacturers of this type of system can provide a variety of lengths of connecting conduits.
So, if necessary, you can locate the outdoor unit as far away as 50 feet from the indoor evaporator.
This makes it possible to cool rooms on the front side of a building house with the compressor in a more advantageous or inconspicuous place on the outside of the building.
Mini Split-systems can also help to keep your home safer because there is only a small hole in the wall. Through-the-wall and window mounted room air-conditioners can provide an easy entrance for intruders.
