The most common type of central air conditioner is the split system, which depends on air ducts in order to circulate cooled air throughout a building. This is a very effective setup. However, many homes cannot accommodate the installation of bulky ductwork, and some homeowners simply wish to avoid the issues which can sometimes develop with air ducts. In such instances, a ductless air conditioner is truly an outstanding system.
Is Ductless Air Conditioning Right for Your LA Home?
Ductless air conditioners, also known as ductless mini splits, are air conditioning systems which, as you’ve probably surmised, do not require air ducts in order to distribute cooled air throughout your home. Instead, individual, wall mounted blowers are used to do so. These blowers connect to an outdoor compressor unit via a simple conduit, containing power and refrigerant lines. The blowers cool the areas of the home in which they are installed directly, completely eliminating the need for air ducts all together.
Ductless Mini Split Installation
There are a lot of ways in which you may benefit as a direct result of utilizing a ductless mini split in your home. First of all, ductless air conditioning systems are, in truth, ductless heating and cooling systems. Their operation can be reversed in order to warm your home during the colder time of the year.
Plus, ductless air conditioners, in eliminating the need for air ducts, also eliminate the risks of inefficiency and indoor air quality problems that air ducts carry with them. Air ducts are great at distributing conditioned air, but only when they are kept in great condition. If your system is not properly designed, or if it suffers any sort of damages, it is going to allow air to leak out. This means that your air conditioner is going to have to work overtime in order to replace that conditioned air, and this will be evident in your energy bills.
We don’t think that you should wind up paying more money for a weaker cooling performance, and you won’t have to when you utilize a ductless air conditioner. Because damaged air ducts can also allow pollutants into your system, which may then be distributed throughout your entire house, a ductless AC can also help you to boost indoor air quality.
Finally, ductless air conditioners are far simpler to install, especially in existing homes, than a split central air conditioner. The installation must still be completed by a skilled, trained professional, of course. However, the lack of ductwork makes the job quicker and far less disruptive to your daily routine.
