Cooling the home during the summer is often an expensive undertaking. While central air conditioning is the most thorough option, it also typically costs the most. Ductless air conditioners have recently gained popularity due to their easy installation and eco-friendliness. Here’s how ductless mini-splits work in your home.
Ductless Air Conditioning
Ductless mini-splits consist of three major components including the indoor unit, outdoor unit and refrigerant line. Ductless systems are minimally invasive and only require a few small holes in your wall. The outdoor unit pulls in air that is then cooled via the refrigerant. Cold air is pushed into the home and out of the indoor unit, which can be controlled by a remote control or thermostat.
Ductless mini-splits are different from conventional central air conditioning in that they don’t require ductwork. The air is directly transferred into your home, minimizing energy wastefulness. You also have the flexibility to install an indoor unit in one or several rooms of your home.
This form of air conditioning is perfect for older buildings with structural limitations. You can also install ductless air conditioning in addition to your central air to provide better temperature control to areas like your garage or attic.
Ductless mini-splits often cost more initially to install than window units or central air. You may also dislike the look of the indoor components because they tend to be bigger and more noticeable than air vents. Overall, ductless mini-splits save you energy costs each month and provide a convenient cooling option for those living in nontraditional homes.
