Ductless Heating and Air Conditioning

Ductless heating and air conditioning units are innovative ways to heat and cool an area in your home without the need for bulky and difficult duct work installation. Let’s discuss more details on these kinds of systems and how they can be of benefit to many consumers.

Ductless mini split systems consist of an indoor unit and an outdoor unit. The two units are connected together with copper tubing and electrical wiring. For a ductless air conditioner, the refrigerant is pumped from the outdoor condenser coil and compressor through the tubing to the indoor unit which contains a fan to move cool air across the unit’s evaporator coil. If the system works as a ductless heating unit, the cycle is reversed.

There are several components to a ductless system. In the case of an air conditioner, they consist of the following:

A condensing unit which contains the compressor. It is located outside of the building.

Thin refrigerant lines to connect the indoor unit to the outdoor unit. They move refrigerant.

And indoor unit which contains a fan. This moves the cooled air throughout the room.

There may be a handheld remote to control the entire system.

A big benefit of a ductless system versus a ducted system is that much greater control of heating and cooling can be achieved with the former. In a central system, heated or cooled air moves from a central module throughout the home through ducts. Slight variation in temperature can be achieved by closing off ducts.

Otherwise the system is designed to move the same amount of heated or cooled air throughout the system. However with a ductless mini split system, it is possible to achieve very specific results for each room an indoor unit is installed. In this way much greater efficiency can be achieved since each room can be optimized for certain temperatures. The units can also be programmed to turn off and on as desired.

So if a room is not used very often, there can be excellent energy savings in not using the unit. The installation of these ductless systems can often be much simpler than for ducted central systems. This is especially true for a system which is designed to be installed in an existing home.

So for great energy savings as well as the ability to control the heating and air conditioning on a per room basis, consider installing ductless systems. They are used in many installations and offer outstanding reliability and performance.
