Many homeowners have improved the comfort of their living space and even managed to cut their energy bill because of mini-splits in Naples, FL. A ductless air conditioner is a system that cools a single room, and if you install a series of these in your home, you could get more efficient cooling than if you went with a ducted air conditioner.
What is a mini split, first of all? It’s a heat pump, which means it cools by transferring heat away from the home. The air handler, a sleek device that you mount on your wall or hang from the ceiling, does this part of the job. A chemical called refrigerant courses through the air handler, then travels through a refrigerant line to an outside unit called the compressor, where it releases the heat it absorbed. Those are the only three components that you’ll have to deal with. Let’s get into more detail about the convenience of these systems.
Naples Mini Split Installation Process
When you hire Gulf Shore Cooling, LLC, installation will be no sweat. Simply plan out which rooms you want to install a mini-split system in, then determine where the compressor should go. The compressor is a bit bulky, but you can find a discreet place to put it because you get up to 50 feet of leeway between the indoor and outdoor units. The refrigerant line isn’t too wide and can come through the wall with a three-inch hole in the wall.
Though the cost of installation may be high, consider the following benefits of having a mini-split system.
- Ideal for outbuildings
- Fit well in historic homes
- Provide zoning capabilities
- Prevent the energy loss that ductwork involves
With multiple mini-split units in your home, each being controlled by its own thermostat, you and your occupants don’t have to settle for one single set point as with a ducted unit. Each room can have its own temperature zone. When a room is unoccupied, you can shut off the system there. Thanks to directional airflow, the air you do receive can be aimed right at you, increasing comfort. Our cooling technicians could tell you more about the benefits during a consultation.
