Ductless Air Conditioning Mini-Splits
When it comes to choosing the right air conditioner for your home or small business, there are a few different options to select from. In the south, we’re quite used to packaged units, otherwise known as all-in-one systems. However, ever growing in popularity, are the ductless mini-split systems. Designed to be highly efficient, and easy to install, ductless air conditioning could change the way that you think about climate control, and may be the best choice for your upcoming installation.
Why Choose Ductless Air Conditioning?
Much of the cost of installing an air conditioning unit, comes from the work that is required to install ducting around a home or small business. In the case of a central packaged system, the ducting would be significant, and depending on the size of your home or business, the costs could easily exceed the budget that you’re comfortable with. A ductless system uses a mini-split design, which houses the condenser unit outdoors, with the air handler unit (AHU) being mounted on the wall inside a house. This means that only a small section of piping and electrical wire needs to be installed through the wall. In most cases, the hole required will be less than four inches in diameter, which is a huge reduction compared to having a complete ducted installation.
Simple installation isn’t the only reason to choose ductless air conditioning. Efficiency is key to any large appliance that you install in your home or commercial space. Efficiency means that you can achieve maximum cooling per dollar spent on energy, which is not only great for your budget, but also reduces your carbon footprint. Ductless mini-split systems can have SEER ratings as high as 19, which is a significant step up from the minimum SEER 13 rating that is required by federal law on all new air conditioning units.
Because mini-splits are installed in specific zones and can be individually controlled, you will only use the energy that you need to cool these individual spaces. This means that you won’t be wasting energy when rooms aren’t in use, and you will have far more control over ambient temperatures than you would with a packaged unit. Depending on your main compressor unit, you can chain up to five indoor units within a single installation. This means efficient, individually controlled units in up to five rooms of your home or business.
Mini-Splits are Low Profile
While there’s no denying that a ducted system is the most low profile of any air conditioning solution, a mini-split can still be used without creating an eyesore in your home or office. AHUs can be mounted on inconspicuous areas of your interior walls, and they come in different sizes, depending on the size of your rooms, and your exact cooling needs. AHUs can also be ordered in a range of colors, to complement your interior styling.
Fast Installation for Maximum Convenience
Ductless air conditioning can often be installed in a single day, depending on the size of the installation and the number of AHUs that you choose to install. There are even options for partially recessed installations, depending on your home and the type of materials used in its construction.
